You’ve probably heard all about the [Insert Brand Name Here] magical belly wraps which sell for $25 each and need to be repeated every few months to maintain the desired effect.
Warning: Body wraps aren’t proven to achieve much, other than remove water weight (essentially, dehydrate you.) They may also be bad for circulation. So if you try this, keep in mind that they can have risks and you should be aware that these aren’t a magic weight loss cure.
Should not be used while pregnant. If you’re breastfeeding, check with your doctor. Some medical professionals believe that the toxins your body releases can go into your milk supply.
But for those people who still want to do this easily and cheaply at home, here’s all you need:
1. Lotion, oil or some healthy liquid that you can put on your belly. Suggestions include coconut oil, vitamin E cream, calendula, body mud or just your run of the mill body lotion. Once you get fancier, you can try mineral oils and other fun things.1 | 2
