I want you to experience the BEST results from your body wrapping experience so I put together this list of how I personally wrap and how I obtained unbelievable results with my first 3 wraps. Please read through these tips and follow them, every single one!
Don’t skim over them or pick and choose what steps work best for you. You have invested your hard earned money in your wraps, so you want to make sure to get your money’s worth.
If you don’t follow these steps, then you won’t get the results you hope for and there is nothing I can do to change that. Please don’t write and tell me you didn’t see results if you didn’t follow instructions.
Please KNOW that there are people who are selling outdated product or knockoff product. Be mindful of your purchase. I provide detail on how you can determine if you are getting real or outdated product here.
Before you begin, please know that a FULL TREATMENT is considered 4 wraps on the SAME body area. If you have more than one area to target, you will need additional boxes for each. If you follow the steps detailed below, you WILL see results:
STEP ONE: Take your before pictures! Take a picture of the area you are going to wrap (no matter how embarrassing it is). When you take your picture after you take your wrap off, make sure you’re in the same position and same distance (on all your progress pictures). When taking your pictures after 72 hours, make sure you wear clothes similar to what you wore in your before pictures. Again, same pose, same distance. This will give you a true results picture. When you take your after picture, and compare those pictures SIDE BY SIDE, you will be amazed at the difference! I use the picture app Pic Stitch to put the pictures side by side.
STEP TWO: Take a HOT shower right before you wrap. You want to open up your pores so the cream from the wrap penetrates the skin and does what it’s supposed to do. DO NOT use soap or lotion at all. This will block your pores. Use a scrubby sponge or cellulite brush to help open the pores. Remember, NO SOAP AND NO LOTION AT ALL!
STEP THREE: Wipe the area you’re going to wrap with rubbing alcohol (or Witch Hazel). This assures anything on your skin that could hinder the process is removed and your pores are open to soak in all the goodness from the wrap!
STEP FOUR: Make sure you have read the instructions on your wrap package
STEP FIVE: Apply the wrap to the area you are wrapping with the lotion side against your skin. Smooth the wrap to get out as many bubbles & creases as possible. There may be lotion on the top when you smooth it out. Rub it around the area you’re wrapping or somewhere else on your body!
STEP SIX: To keep the wrap in place, wrap the area with plastic wrap, ace bandage, compression clothing or shape-wear. The plastic wrap does nothing to improve your results. It just keeps the wrap in place during your wrapping session.
STEP SEVEN: Leave the wrap on for a MINUMUM of 45 minutes. On your first wrap it’s advised that you only leave it on 45 minutes to make sure you have no adverse reaction. I leave mine on for at least 3 to 7 hours. Check under the wrap, if you’re skin looks ok, you can put it back on and leave it on for a couple more hours. When you use your 2nd wrap, you can wear it up to 8 hours. Some people sleep in it. Do not leave the wrap on more than 8 hours. You can go shopping, clean house, chill out or whatever while wearing the wrap. DO NOT exercise while wearing the wrap. You want the lotion to absorb into your skin, not sweat it out.
STEP EIGHT: During your wrapping session, drink a minimum of 2 cups of water or 16+ oz. If you wear the wrap longer, drink more water! It’s recommended that you drink half your body weight in ounces of water. So if you weigh 150 pounds, you should drink 75 ounces of water.
STEP NINE: When you take your wrap off, there will be lotion on your skin and on the wrap. RUB THE LOTION INTO YOUR SKIN. An added tip: MASSAGE! Especially for areas with cellulite! Massage the area you’re targeting. Rub the leftover lotion from the wrap into your skin! This lotion is like GOLD! Do Not waste it! Keep rubbing until all the lotion is soaked into your skin. If you remove the wrap and it’s mostly dry, don’t worry! That’s good…you’re skin soaked it up.
STEP TEN: After you take the wrap off and rub in the cream, take your pictures & compare them. Now – Jump for Joy and join the addiction!
THE FIRST 72 HOURS: (3 days) continue to drink ½ your body weight in ounces of water each day!! This is imperative for the wraps to work. Personally, right when I get up a drink a big cup of water. Try it! Your body will love you for it! You MUST drink the water!
THE NEXT THREE DAYS: For the next 3 days, stay away from fatty or processed foods, sugar, coffee, soda and alcohol. And WATCH YOUR SALT INTAKE. Do not smoke (anything~cigarettes or otherwise). The wrap is doing it’s job, you need to do your part to achieve the absolute best results possible! You can’t eat like crap and expect to keep your results or continue to have results. You are releasing the impurities in your fat cells, you do not want to ADD MORE TOXINS/CHEMICALS! If you’re like me and you MUST drink coffee – drink it black or with Stevia sweetener – nothing else!
Do not exercise for at least 8 hours after your wrap. You want to make sure the lotion is completely absorbed into your skin. This wrap does not work by sweating! Personally, I don’t exercise until the next day.
Do not shower immediately after you wrap! Give yourself several hours before you take a shower. Personally, I shower the next day. I do not want to wash away the lotion; I want it to do it’s job. If you MUST shower, wait at least 8 hours before doing so.
90% of people do get results with the wraps. If you didn’t, read through these instructions carefully and make sure you did them exactly as recommended. If you are a smoker…Smoking can lesson your results. DO NOT SMOKE WHILE WRAPPING. Smoke Tobacco (marijuana) is a TOXIN.
Do Not wrap when it’s “that time of the month”. There is something in the hormonal imbalance during that time that diminishes results. The wrap may not work at all during your period or taking medications. Plan your wraps accordingly! Regarding medications, if you have questions, take a wrap with ingredients to your doctor and ask.
Do Not wrap again for 72 hours! The botanical-blend in one wrap continues to work over the course of 72 hours (3 days). Your results will progress over this time.
Wrap only 1 area at a time. For stomach, wrap your stomach only. Your arms and legs can be wrapped at the same time (either both arms, or both legs). Depending on the size of your arms/legs, the wrap can be cut in half and placed in the desired location. Do not wrap your arms and legs at the same time. Stomach separate, legs separate and arms separate. Do not wrap them together!
Take your pictures again after 72 hours!!!! Be amazed at your results!!!
