Taking a warm shower beforehand helps to open the pores.
Do not shave your legs before the wrap.
Remember, body wraps work by infusing minerals through the skin and by breaking down fat cells for elimination so drink lots of water both before and after your wrap to assist in flushing out the toxins and dislodged fat.
Take a hot bath on the second or third day after a wrap to help open the pores and release accumulated toxins from the skin.
Repeated wraps should show you results. If you wish, you can take your measurements to see how much you’re taking off with each wrap.
Lastly, light exercise and paying attention to your diet will obviously help to reduce weight and keep the toxins to a minimum. Try to avoid caffeine, sugar, fried foods, nitrates, soda and drink water.
