Common Misconceptions About The Body Wraps

The ultimate body applicator or body wrap is a non woven cloth infused with active and natural ingredients that are known good for the skin and have been used as herbal medicines even in the ancient times. It is known for tightening, toning and firming a sagging and slackening skin that makes a person look old. The wrap is also known to minimize the appearance of cellulite- the unwanted dimples in your skin. Despite the popularity of the wrap, there are several misconceptions that need to be corrected.

What you should know about the body wraps?

Is it for weight loss?

The ultimate body applicator is not for weight loss. Some people would claim that it will help in losing water weight. However, the wrap has nothing to do with your weight loss. The truth is it should be used after losing a tremendous amount of weight. When you lose weight abruptly, you will experience a sagging and slackening skin because your skin has not yet conform to your new shape. These layers of sluggish skin add a few inches in your waist, thighs and arms that will make you look fat. The wrap can only tighten, tone and firm your skin to shrug off a few inches in these areas.

Is it a fat Shrinker?

Another misconception that you need to be aware of is the fact that the body wrap can't shrink fat cells. Eating salty and fatty foods is like encouraging the toxins back in your body that can counteract the results of the wrap. Aside from maintaining a healthy diet, you should also stop smoking and drinking of alcoholic beverages because these are the main reasons for skin inflammation that could lead to broken collagen.

Is exercise still necessary?

The wrap is promoted to save you time but not in terms of exercise. With its 45 minute application, you don't have to spend your two or three hours in a spa for the same procedure because you can do it at your home and even with just by yourself. But you still need to maintain a regular exercise to maximize the potential results of the body wrap. Exercise can help in stabilizing blood flow to make sure that each artery on the surface of the skin will receive the nutrients the skin needs.

What about the immediate results?

The wrap can provide immediate results in as little as 45 minutes. However, there are people who have thick and dry layer of skin that hinder the easy absorption of the ingredients. Hence, they may not be able to see an immediate result. However, the wrap can work for 72 hours. To make sure that you will feel the difference, you have to use the wrap once in 72 hours until you achieve your desired results and then once a month for maintenance.

The body wrap can help in tightening, toning and firming your excess and hanging skin to make you look good and feel good about yourself. However, you should not depend everything on the wrap because nothing can beat a healthy and active lifestyle. You should also know how to manage stress and maintain optimism to keep your body and health in good condition.
