Hello Sweeties! This is T.J. from Sugar Blossoms and I’m so excited to be here today to share this DIY body wrap with you! School is out and I’m ready for summer but I have a problem: I don’t like how I look in a bathing suit. I’ve been working on losing weight but the fact that I’ve had 3 children has left me with a less-than-stellar stomach . . . if ya know what I mean.
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!
Here’s her “secret recipe” for DIY Body Wrapping. You only need 3 things:
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 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.
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!
