Enveloping Your Body Beautiful

Enveloping Your Body Beautiful

If you have not had a body wrap treatment, you are missing out on a special experience. There are various types of body wraps but the principle of all remains the same.

After getting rubbed down with an exfoliating scrub of your choice, the wrap ingredients (which could include seaweed, clay, mud or a fruit or herbal product) are applied generously all over your body and you are then covered with a layer of plastic wrap. You are then left alone to relax or sleep in a quiet, dimly lit or darkened room. After 30 minutes the wrap is removed with almost dramatic results.

Wondering what you can expect after being wrapped up like a cocoon for 30 minutes?

You Will Feel A Few Pounds Lighter

When the wrap is taken off your body, you will instantly look and feel a few pounds lighter. While you have to keep in mind that a body wrap is not a solution for long term weight loss, this is a great alternative if you want to look slimmer for an upcoming special occasion. Imagine being able to wow your classmates at your school reunion with your newly acquired svelte figure! You can’t deny it’s an exhilarating feeling.

You Will Feel Relaxed, Refreshes & Reenergized

While some of the benefits of body wraps are debatable, relaxation is one of the benefits that nobody can dispute. There’s nothing quite as relaxing as spending time in a dimly lit room and listening to calming music while snugly wrapped in a fragrant cocoon. After a session like that, you will feel your tiredness melt away and you will walk out re-energized and ready to face whatever life has in store for you!

 

 

 

 

The Secret Is In The Mud

Who would have thought that using mud would be such a popular beauty treatment?

It’s ironic! We spend hours washing off the mud from our skin after a day out in the heat and dust and then we spend a few more hours slathering it onto our skin for it to look smooth and beautiful. There’s definitely something to be said about the many anomalies in beauty treatments.

If you, like many others, have found the idea of a mud mask strange, you should know that ‘mud’ mask is really a misnomer. The mud used in such a mask is really a type of clay that is rich in minerals and other special ingredients that work together to cleanse and soften the skin, leaving it looking smooth and younger-looking. The claims that you read about the effects of a mud mask really are true.

How To Use A Mud Mask

A mask should always be applied to clean, dry skin.

Apply the mask generously, making sure you cover the whole face including the jaw line and forehead but not the eye area.

Leave the mask on for about 15 to 20 minutes and then wash off thoroughly by splashing warm water over your face or by wiping gently with a wet washcloth.

Do not use soap or any type of facial cleanser immediately after using a mud mask.

Applying a mud mask over your face just twice or thrice a week is enough to get a clear, brighter, younger looking skin.

Of course, doing it yourself does take a bit of prep work and cleaning up. It’s so much better to pamper yourself by getting a mud mask by a professional at a spa. After all, you deserve it!
