BODY WRAPS: The Ultimate Detox Treatment
| Jessica Smith
Body wraps, a staple at spas, are considered an effective, all-natural way to enhance and moisten your skin, making it look softer.
Now, they're being touted by many beauty experts as a way to help women look and feel slimmer.
People undergoing body wrap treatments typically have their torso, legs, arms, and neck wrapped with an elastic bandage (either dry when wrapped or pre-soaked with a body wrap mixture). The elastic bandages absorb and help remove excess body fluids and toxins. The bandages are wrapped snugly (though not too tightly), creating a thermal blanket that promotes sweating and aids in the shedding of unnecessary interstitial fluid (fluid located between the small spaces of body tissues).
Possible Benefits of Body Wraps
Body wraps are all-natural, most often containing a mixture of herbs, clay, and minerals designed to beautify the skin. Essential oils and sea salts may also be used in daily spa body wrap treatments, seeking to help tone and soften the skin, and help rid you of those unwanted inches. Results may be realized immediately. But toxins and interstitial fluids eventually re-accumulate, so regular body wraps may provide better long-term benefits. We recommend to the body wraps every other day.

Body scrubs may use clay, salts and other natural ingredients to exfoliate and detoxify the skin.
Body wraps use detoxifying organic materials, such as mud or aloe vera, to draw toxins from the body and soften skin. Most body scrubs use a blend of oils with fine and coarse grains, and are followed with the application of emollient lotions to further soften skin. Skin will feel soft, and fine lines will lessen after just one treatment. Such deeply relaxing treatments are shown to decrease stress, thereby lowering blood pressure. Since the skin is our largest organ, detoxification can have profound effects on our health and sense of well-being.
