Best Practices for body wrap to lose weight
This product is not recommended for pregnant or nursing women or children. If you have a medical condition, health concern, or are taking prescription medication, consult with your health care professional before using this product. Here is a list of some best practices that have helped me achieve results personally. I hope they work for you too. Do not use soaps with lanolin - they tend to clog pores. Wipe the area with alcohol - make sure there are no lotions or perfumes on your skin. Alcohol will also open up your pores. (Tip: Use a panty liner rather than a cotton swab…goes quicker) Use a measuring tape - write down measurements daily. Make sure to measure 3 areas before you wrap. Use a Sharpie – mark where you measured for more accurate results. A pen mark will be gone when you remove the applicator. Measure 3 spots - (waist, belly button and lower ab). This will help make sure you are being accurate. Add those inch loss results together to come up with your total loss amount. Drink plenty of water – ½ your body weight in ounces the day you wrap and 3 days following. (If you weigh 150 lbs, drink 75 ounces of water a day) Avoid salty foods. Take a hot shower first – make sure skin is clean and pours are open. No lotions or perfumes on your skin before you wrap. Use proper wrapping material – Saran wrap, ace bandage or tight clothing (biker shorts) to secure applicator snug enough so the wrap doesn’t slide off, but not tight enough to make you start sweating. Wear for 45 minutes – 1 hour - then remove saran wrap. The goal is to have as much of the product absorb as possible so rub it in after you remove the wrap, don’t wash it off. No sweating – don’t work out or do anything else that will make you sweat while you are wearing the wrap. Measure every day - drink your water and think slim! Only use one wrap per area every 72 hours - anything more is a waste. (Example, don’t put 2 wraps on your belly) Measure results with inch loss not weight loss. Relax and enjoy the 45 minutes and think slim.
