It Works Body Wraps How To and Tips
I want you to get the Absolute BEST results when using the wraps! This is how I personally wrap myself. So I made you this list of It Works Body Wraps tips. I STRONGLY recommend you follow these tips. Don’t just skim over the page and/or select what steps you feel like doing. FOLLOW ALL THE STEPS exactly word for word. Don’t write me and tell me you didn’t see any results, and that you followed this page exactly. Only to find out you skipped steps.
Also, please keep in mind that a FULL TREATMENT is considered 4 wraps on the SAME body area. If you have more than one area to target, you will need additional boxes for each. If you follow what I’ve written for you below, you will see results:
♦ First ~ Take your before pictures! Take a picture of the area you are going to wrap (no matter how stupid or embarrassed you feel doing it). When you take your picture after you take your wrap off, make sure you’re in the same position and same distance (on all your progress pictures). When taking your pictures after 72 hours, make sure you wear clothes similar to what you wore in your before pictures. And again, same pose, same distance. Make sure your clothing is positioned the same too. This will give you a true results picture. When you take your after picture, you will be amazed at the difference! You see yourself every day and won’t realize how much you’ve really changed until you look at the two pictures together. Trust me on this! Take your pictures!! I use the picture app Pic Stitch to put the pictures side by side.
♦ Take a hot shower right before you wrap. You want to open up your pores so the cream from the wrap can soak in. DO NOT use any soap at all. This will block your pores. Do Not use any lotion or oil at all either. Use a lo-fa sponge or cellulite brush to help open the pores. Remember, no soap or lotion of any kind! You can use a natural exfoliate such as sea salt or sugar if you wish.
♦ I personally wipe the area I’m going to wrap with rubbing alcohol (or Witch Hazel). This assures anything on my skin is removed and my pores are open to soak in all the goodness from the wrap!
♦ Make sure you have read the instructions on your wrap package. Read here for further instructions.
♦ Apply the wrap to the area you are wrapping with the lotion side down. Smooth the wrap to get out as many bubbles & creases as possible. There may be lotion on the top when you smooth it out. Rub it around the area you’re wrapping or somewhere else on your body!
♦ To keep the wrap in place, wrap the area with plastic wrap, ace bandage, compression clothing or shape-wear. The plastic wrap does nothing to improve your results. It’s just to keep the wrap in place.
♦ Leave the wrap on for a MINUMUM of 45 minutes. On your first wrap it’s advised that you only leave it on 45 minutes to make sure you have no adverse reaction. Check under the wrap, if you’re skin looks ok, you can put it back on and leave it on for a couple more hours. When you use your 2nd wrap, you can wear it up to 8 hours. Some people sleep in it. Do not leave the wrap on more than 8 hours. You can go shopping, clean house, chill out or whatever while wearing the wrap. DO NOT exercise while wearing the wrap. You want the lotion to absorb into your skin, no sweat out.
♦ During your 45 minutes, drink a minimum of 2 cups of water or 16+ oz. If you wear the wrap longer, drink more water!
♦ When you take your wrap off, there will be lotion on your skin and on the wrap. RUB THE LOTION INTO YOUR SKIN. An added tip: MASSAGE! Especially for areas with cellulite! Give yourself a little massage on the area you’re targeting. Rub the leftover lotion from the wrap on your skin! This lotion is like GOLD! Do Not waste it! On some people the lotion turns white when you rub it. That’s fine…just keep rubbing until it’s soaked into your skin. Everyone absorbs the lotion differently, some people may remove the wrap and it’s mostly dry. That’s good…you’re pores have soaked it up.
♦ After you take the wrap off and rub in the cream, take your pictures & compare them. And, REJOYCE
♦ For the next 72 hours (3 days) drink ½ your body weight in ounces of water each day!! This is imperative for the wraps to work. If you weigh 200 lbs drink 100 oz of water each day. That’s 6 or so bottles (depending on the oz in each bottle). Personally, right when I get up a drink a big cup of water. Try it! Your body will love you for it You must drink the water!
♦ For the next 3 days, stay away from fatty or processed foods, sugar, coffee, soda and alcohol. And WATCH YOUR SALT INTAKE. Do not smoke (anything~cigarettes or otherwise). The wrap is doing it’s job, you need to do your part to achieve the absolute best results possible! You can’t eat like crap and go out and party and expect to keep your results or continue to have results. You are releasing the impurities in your fat cells, you do not want to ADD MORE TOXINS/CHEMICALS!
♦ Do not exercise while wearing the wrap. Do not exercise for at least 8 hours after your wrap. You want to make sure the lotion is completely absorbed into your skin. This wrap does not work by sweating! Personally, I wouldn’t exercise until the next day.
♦ Do not shower immediately after you wrap! Give yourself several hours before you take a shower. Personally, I shower the next day. I do not want to wash away the lotion; I want it to do it’s job. I’d wait at least 8 hours before showering.
♦ 98% of people do get results with the wraps. If you didn’t, please read through all these tip and make sure you did them. If you are a smoker…Smoking can lesson your results. DO NOT SMOKE WHILE WRAPPING. Smoke Tobacco (marijuana) is a TOXIN.
♦ Ladies Do Not wrap when it’s “that time of the month”. There is something in the hormonal imbalance during that time that diminishes results. The wrap may not work at all during your period or taking medications. Plan your wraps accordingly! Regarding medications, if you have questions, take a wrap with ingredients to your doctor and ask.
♦ Do Not wrap again for 72 hours! The botanical-blend in one wrap continues to work over the course of 72 hours (3 days). Your results will progress over this time.
♦ Wrap only 1 area at a time. For stomach, wrap your stomach only. Your arms and legs can be wrapped at the same time (either both arms or both legs). Depending on the size of your arms/legs, the wrap can be cut in half and placed in the desired location. Do not wrap your arms and legs at the same time. Stomach separate, legs separate and arms separate. Do not wrap them together!
♦ Take your pictures again after 72 hours!!!! Be amazed at your results!!! And, let me know your results
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you follow these tips! After all, you paid your hard earned money for these wraps, don’t you want to get the BEST results with them? Is a silly indulgence worth ruining your results?
