If you are losing weight, it is imperative to take care of your skin. This gives it elasticity, makes it firm and healthy, and prevents the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite. Many women do not pay due attention to this issue and then worry about sagging skin.
To prevent this from happening, it is recommended to conduct wrapping courses. It is not necessary to visit cosmetologists and expensive salons - most procedures can be easily performed at home, with your own hands. The main thing is to take some time for yourself and stock up on folk remedies: thick clay, mustard and oatmeal. These wrapping options will be discussed in this article.
Option 1. Clay battering
The easiest and most painless option. Clay, unlike many other products, does not irritate the skin.
How to do?
Dilute the powder (1 pack) of cosmetic clay until homogeneous with warm water (use the information on the package). Apply the resulting thick gruel to problem areas of the body. Wrap yourself in cling film. Do your household chores or lie down under the covers. After an hour, rinse with warm water, apply a care product.
The clay acts softly, does not pinch the skin - such a wrap can be kept for an hour.
Option 2. Mustard wrap
The cheapest wrapping option is with mustard powder. The tool is sold in all stores and costs a penny.
How to do?
Dilute 1 cup of mustard powder with boiling water, stir. Let cool slightly and apply to problem areas of the body. Wrap yourself in cling film. Wash off the composition from the skin after 30 minutes. It is possible earlier if it starts to burn strongly.
Option 3. Oat wrap
Few people know that oatmeal is useful not only inside. It is also an excellent cosmetic product that tightens and nourishes the skin.
How to do?
Mix 1 cup oatmeal with 2.5 cups boiling water. Leave to infuse for 10-15 minutes. Then add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 3 drops of jojoba oil to the mixture. Without waiting for the mixture to cool, apply the gruel to problem areas and wrap yourself in cling film. Cover yourself with a blanket and lie down for 30 minutes. After wrapping, shower, apply nourishing or moisturizing body milk.
Slimming wrap (any) is recommended to be done in a course of at least 10-12 procedures every other day. The effect will be noticeable after the first course - it will go up to 4 cm from the waist and hips.
For wraps or masks to work, be sure to prepare your skin. "Open the pores", as cosmetologists say, ie make the skin receptive to the care products.
To do this, be sure to take a bath. Cosmetologists recommend adding herbal preparations or sea salt to the water.
A great option is a tandem of chamomile and linden. Such a bath will help relieve tension, relax and prepare the body for the upcoming procedures. To do this, pour a handful of chamomile and linden with boiling water and put on a steam bath for 20 minutes. Then let it brew for 2 hours and strain. Add the finished broth to a bath filled with warm water.
Apply an exfoliating scrub to your steamed body and massage your skin for 2-3 minutes. Pay special attention to problem areas. The scrub will remove dead skin cells, make it soft and smooth, ready for the wrapping procedure.
You can buy a scrub at a store or make it yourself. In the first case, you should give preference to natural cosmetics, for example, marked handmade or eco. But, nevertheless, carefully read the composition before buying.
For making a scrub with your own hands, the most basic and inexpensive means and products that are usually found in every home are also suitable. For example, salt and soda, thick coffee, oatmeal, granulated sugar.
An oil scrub (with jojoba or shea oils) is ideal for dry skin. Gently cleanses the dermis, but does not dry it out.
Sugar scrub moisturizes better than others.
Coconut - not only cleanses but also nourishes. Non-irritating and suitable for almost all skin types.
Salt - active against cellulite. Has the lowest cost.
Coffee - gives the skin a unique aroma and effectively fights the smallest dead particles. Most suitable for oily skin.
