Detox Body Wraps
Enjoy The Benefits of Health and Beauty in One
Detox Body Wraps not only help to purify your body but also nourish it, and all while you relax. It is really a wonderful way to do something good for yourself.
The skin as the largest organ of the body plays an important roll in the Natural Body Detox process. It takes up around 30% of the body's natural cleansing function. It works like a big filter that absorbs and excretes. Because of that, the skin is often referred to as the third kidney.
How is a Body Wrap done
Natural products such as clay, mud, herbs and minerals are mixed with water or oil and put on the whole skin except the head. Then the body is wrapped up in towels or special thermo blankets (again, without the head) to keep the ingredients moist.
The wrapping is usually left for 30 to 60 minutes. After unwrapping the body the product, which is then often dry, is washed of with a shower.
Body Wrap with Bandage or Compress
This is an other technique of wrapping up the body. It differs in this way, the bandage is first soaked in the liquid (clay, algae etc.) and then applied onto the whole body in a special way.
What are the Benefits
It works in two ways. The ingredients that are applied on the body draw out toxins and impurites from the skin. At the same time the skin gets nourished with essential nutrients.
Detox Wraps are a great addition to other detoxification plans like fasting.
The treatment may also help to reduce cellulite if it is done on a regular basis. It definitely does tone and tighten the skin and leaves a refreshing and healthy look.
It is such an enjoyable and relaxing treat, that it is beneficial for the body and the soul.
