Body Wraps to Tighten Loose Skin   -   Is This Possible?

If you are reading this article, then you must know what it feels like to see unwanted, loose, saggy, skin on your body. You are probably fed up with looking at it and want to know if there is an effective way to get rid of that skin. Imagine looking into the mirror and no longer seeing that anymore...Nice thought huh?...

Before I get into the whole wrap thing, I want to first, quickly touch on a few causes of loose skin...

Besides high levels of weight loss, one cause of loose skin is less collagen. Collagen is an important protein that makes up a large percentage of the connective tissues of your body, especially your skin! As you age, your body naturally slows down the production of collagen, which causes the skin to lose its tightness, resulting in sagging skin.

Another cause of loose skin, is weakened elastin, this is another important protein found in the skin and connective tissues. Elastin provides your body with the ability to stretch and recoil as your body changes in size and shape or moves throughout the day. And as you age, elastin naturally breaks down, causing the skin to be less capable to spring back to its original shape when stretched.

Now that you know some the causes of loose skin, I will go on to share a way for you to say "good bye" to that annoying stretched skin.

The use of the popular trend called "body wraps," has quickly taking a rising toll with helping many people to detoxify their body, lose weight, inches, smooth, tone, and tighten skin! These wraps are made with natural ingredients, like, algae, seaweed, aloe vera, olive oil, clay, green tea, and essential oils, just to name a few. Each ingredient has its own benefit in the wrapping treatment.

There are several types of wraps available that focus on different things for the body. The process is pretty simple and painless. It can take anywhere from 45 -60 minutes or possibly longer for treatment, depending on what wrap and areas of your body you're doing.

Treatments involve wrapping the desired area in elastic or linen bandages usually along with plastic/saran wrap soaked in a special herbal, aloe, on mineral solution. This process creates a warm moist heat that open the pores that allows effective penetration of the ingredients. The wrap works to tighten the skin by dehydrating and flushing the body of toxins.

There are also skin toning and tightening gels that can be used as well in the wrap treatment, which can aid in even better results!

While body wraps are well known for being done is spas, more and more people are choosing to enjoy having them done in the comfort of their own home.

If you do decide to try a wrap, please understand that although they are known to show quick results, those results are temporary, do to the fact that the results must be maintained by you. A healthy diet and regular exercise is highly recommeneded.
