When I do a wrap I end up using 4 ace bandages and I was finding it a pain in the butt so I decided to make them into one long bandage to make my life incredibly easier.
If you don’t have a professional grade wrap you can use plastic wrap and ace bandages as I recommend in the post. I usually do it for about 4 to 6 hours but you can leave it on for overnight if you are comfortable enough with it on. You could use cocoa butter but you would need to soften it a bit and mix it with something more solid like lotion to keep it on the surface of your skin for the duration of the wrap. I have showed here how to make a body wrap that detoxifies and helps in losing inches in two ways – one where you have Ace wrap and one without Ace wrap, using cling wrap instead. Soak Ace wrap or bandage in this solution and wrap around tightly around the problem area, let’s say the waist. Now, if you don’t have Ace wrap, check out this DIY where I have used cling wrap instead. Wrap the area with several layers of clear plastic wrap then use ace bandages to wrap on top of that. If you want to take before and after pictures and write a brief description and bio I would be happy to post your wrap.


You can find plastic wrap in the grocery store near the tin foil and plastic bags and ace bandages in the first aid section. Waiting closer to 3 days in between wraps is recommended but you can get away with 2 in a pinch but I wouldn’t do that often. The body wraps work by shrinking the cells by eliminating water and sometimes toxins (depending on the wrap you choose) by using a combination of heat and compression. You can move around but keep it to a minimum or your wrap may roll up or the contents squeeze out. If you are exercising every day and eating healthy then doing the wraps twice a week on top of that would make them super effective. Wring out the excess water then place it on the area you want to wrap for a few minutes until it cools. They are still a temporary thing and the water weight will come back, especially that time of the month but you might be able to go longer between wraps. If you have a sewing machine and that is easier for you then feel free to sew them together instead of using glue.
Wrapped it in plastic wrap and then realized I didn’t have any ace bandages but I had a couple of those waist slimmers.


If you firm up your core and other cellulite prone areas you may not need to do the wraps at all anymore because it is the fat cells that retain the water and not muscle.
The ace bandages are still the best way to wrap in my book because you can control the tightness and they are by far the cheapest of the solutions unless you already have a pair of pantie hose laying around that you don’t care if you destroy.
You shouldn’t do wraps everyday or more than once in the same day and drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.
The lotion you use in the wrap isn’t actually going into your skin because you wipe it off when you are done. You can do them as often as every 2 to 3 days though if you are doing them regularly for a prolonged period of time 3 days in between is better.
It is just there to hold onto the other ingredients in the wrap so they can absorb into your skin. If you feel drained or are getting headaches then space them out more or stop for a little while and start again when you feel you are ready.
