Herbal body wraps for cellulite removal are said to deliver results that last for a longer period of time. Applying herbs to affected areas in the body draws out toxins and stimulates the lymphatic system, aside from shedding off water weight. To apply the body wrap, follow the instructions detailed below.
Before you do anything else, get and prepare the following materials and ingredients: one-fourth cup of coffee grounds, one half cup of bentonite clay, one fourth cup of arnica gel, one package of dried kelp, water, sea salt/Epsom salt, dry skin brush and medium size bowl.
Step 1: Before applying the body wrap, prepare your body by dry brushing your skin five minutes daily. Do this before showering. Focus on cellulite-affected regions and make sure to brush in the direction towards the heart to increase circulation.
Step 2: Prepare a herbal clay mixture by mixing one half cup of bentonite clay, one half cup of arnica gel and one fourth cup of coffee grounds. Add a bit of water to form a paste. The mixture should be thick enough to stick to your skin.
Step 3: Prepare kelp by boiling dried kelp in four cups of hot water. Pour more water if necessary to soften the kelp. The process should take around 20 minutes.
Step 4: Take a hot sea salt or Epsom salt bath for 20 minutes. This helps detoxify your body and open your pores to absorb the body wrap more effectively.
Step 5: Apply the herbal clay mixture and then wrap up with kelp. You could cover your body with a bathrobe or towels. Lie down and relax for up to half an hour. It’s okay to fall asleep during the body wrap treatment. Lastly, wash off the mixture and rewrap your body in new towels.
These body wraps for cellulite removal are great natural solutions and best paired with proper diet, regular exercise and a healthy lifestyle in general.
