DIY Body Wrap – Lose up to 1 inch over night!

Today I’m bringing you a wallet-friendly version of body wraps. I’ve been seeing these around the internet lately and mentioned them to a friend. She’s from Mexico and said she’s been doing those for years, just not the commercialized type. I tried it one night and lost .5 inches on my gut overnight! These wraps are great for when you need a quick fix for a wedding or beach trip! Of course eating and healthy and exercising is the best way to lose weight!

DIY body wrap supplies

  • Lotion (it’s best if it contains something from the ocean: seaweed, kelp, mud. I couldn’t find any, so I just used what I had on-hand.)
  • Clear plastic wrap
  • Bandage wrap

It’s a simple process!

Step 1 – Apply a thick layer of lotion to the area you want to target. {Don’t rub it in completely!} You can do it on your stomach, your thighs, your upper arms, wherever your “trouble spots” are.

Step 2 – Wrap the ENTIRE area with your plastic wrap. I went all the way around my mid-section several times. Make it snug but not tight; you do have to wear it ALL night long.

Step 3 – Now wrap the area with a long bandage of some kind, anything that will keep your wrap in place. Be sure to cover the plastic completely.Secure it well and you’re ready to hit the sack!

The idea behind this is to help your body release water that’s retained due to weather, food consumption; even Mother Nature’s visits. The combination of lotion and plastic helps sweat it out of you.

I’ve only tried it once but I LOVED the result!  Maybe a little something to help get you swimsuit ready.  Let me know how it goes for you!
