How to make cellulite wrapping at home?
To make a wrap at home, you will need regular food wrap and a suitable ingredient that will be applied directly to the skin. For these purposes, perfect

Wraps by type differ in cold and hot
Cold wrapping is performed mainly on the basis of essential oils or seaweed. In the process of such a wrapping the process of toning and cooling of the skin occurs. After cooling, blood circulation increases, and metabolic processes occur faster. And also swelling and flabbiness of the skin are reduced.
When hot wrapping on the contrary is heating the skin, due to which our vessels dilate. And subcutaneous fat, in turn, under the influence of temperatures, actively “melts” and, due to enlarged pores, is easily and quickly excreted through the skin.
Experienced cosmetologists advise the alternation of two types of wraps for maximum effect.
It is advisable for this procedure to allocate 1 hour of time when no one will disturb you. It is necessary to prepare a comfortable place where you can lie down and cover yourself with a warm blanket if the wrapping is hot. For these purposes, cover the bed or sofa with a suitable blanket or waterproof material. All actions are usually performed in this order:
- Heat the skin by taking a hot bath
- Clean it with a scrub. It is better if it is made from natural ingredients such as sea salt, ground coffee or sugar. Due to this, the pores are cleaned and the active ingredients easily penetrate deep into the skin.
- Apply to the problem areas a pre-prepared mixture with massage movements, having carefully worked out the "hilly" places.
- Carefully wrap the treated areas with cling film from bottom to top.It is not worth much to wind the film, it is important that it does not squeeze the skin, and there is not much room for moisture to escape.
- When wrapping hot, wrap yourself in a warm blanket or wrap a scarf around the body. When cold wrapping is not necessary to warm.
- Wait for the necessary time for the exposure of the components. Usually it is 20-25 minutes.
- Rinse the skin well with water and a washcloth under the shower.
- To achieve a greater effect, apply anti-cellulite cream to problem areas of the skin.
Such procedures are recommended to be performed three days a week. The minimum course for wraps is 10 sessions.
