Anti-cellulite wraps: what are they?
Anti-cellulite wraps are cold andhot. If you choose from them, then you must pay special attention to each of the ways, because each has its own contraindications. For example, with varicose veins, hot wraps are contra-indicated. And anti-cellulite cold wraps can not be done on the abdomen and thighs, if at the moment there are gynecological problems. The most effective is the hot anti-cellulite wrap, because it serves to dilate the blood vessels. That is, during this procedure, there is a qualitative improvement in blood flow, activation of metabolic processes in the body, expansion of pores. Active constituents of the wrappings increase the rate of excretion of excess fluid and toxins from the tissues. In addition, this anti-cellulite wrap helps to normalize the transport of oxygen to areas affected by cellulite. Anti-cellulite cold wrap, unlike hot, has the opposite principle of action. It works in the direction of vasoconstriction, and with its help toxins are rapidly released through the internal organs of purification and lymph. Cooling constituents used for these procedures have an extremely beneficial effect on the walls of the vessels, removing the heaviness in the legs and edema. But the most effective anti-cellulite wrap is recognized when the alternating hot and cold mode occurs. And if you do not have any contraindications, then it is more rational and best to apply this scheme.
Anti-cellulite wraps: procedure from start to finish
So, how to make an anti-cellulite wrap and withWhat does the anti-cellulite wrap? We begin, of course, with a thorough cleansing of the skin with the help of a good scrub. This can be a scrub based on coffee, sea salt or other abrasive substances. Cleared of keratinized skin cells, you are ready to perceive and absorb all the benefits from the forthcoming procedure. The next step is applying a special lymph drainage gel and warming up a light massage. After all the necessary preparatory procedures have been carried out, you can proceed to the procedure itself - application of a mixture for anti-cellulite wrap, which is applied to the skin with a dense layer with a special brush or with just hands. Then the body should be wrapped with a special film and thermo blanket (if a hot method is carried out). Wraps against cellulite usually last from 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the method of wrapping and the mixtures used. At the end of the procedure, the mixture is washed off under the shower, and a pulling gel with a cooling effect is applied to the skin.
Active components of anti-cellulite wraps
Of course, we are very interested in whythere is a positive effect of the procedure of anti-cellulite wrapping. These are the active ingredients contained in the mixtures that are applied to the skin. The most commonly used marine therapeutic mud, essential oils (orange, cypress, juniper, grapefruit, lemon, oregano and lavender), kaolin clay, algae extracts. All these components include different anti-cellulite wraps: their recipes are very diverse, but equally effective. Therefore, you will never tell exactly which are the most effective anti-cellulite wraps. In the composition of cold wraps necessarily present butter lemongrass, mint, extract of ivy and horse chestnut and, of course, menthol. As a rule, three to four procedures are enough to notice a positive result from anti-cellulite wraps: reviews about this procedure are so positive, and they can often be heard from one or another of their friends, which is understandable. After all the skin, as if on eyes, is tightened, and the superfluous liquid is deduced. The full course of these wraps can consist of 5-15 procedures. Their amount depends on your cellulite stage. To maintain the result should be an anti-cellulite wrap at home or in the salon once every 5-6 months.
Anti-cellulite wraps at home
As already mentioned, anti-cellulite wrap -on its effectiveness, one of the most powerful ways to fight cellulite. This method can be compared only with the procedure of anti-cellulite massage and wrapping. But it is important that a professional is engaged in anti-cellulite massage and wrapping, and if you take one for the procedure against cellulite, then you yourself can perfectly do anti-cellulite wraps at home. Is it possible to damage the anti-cellulite wrap: contraindications for this useful procedure, most likely, have a place to be. In itself, a cold wrap can do no harm. It has long been proven that it is absolutely safe, but if you have any health problems, you should first consult with your doctor. It is absolutely clear that anti-cellulite wraps should not be performed during pregnancy, with abrasions and rashes on the skin, after having recently undergone surgery with non-healing seams. Kidney and liver diseases, asthma, varicose veins, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases for cold anti-cellulite wraps are not contraindications. Hot wrapping, of course, is more effective than cold, but it has much more contra-indications:
- varicose veins
- skin wounds, dermatitis
- any tumors
- kidney problems
- cardiovascular diseases
- gynecological diseases
Having found out all about contraindications, we pass toissue, as do anti-cellulite wrap. So, for anti-cellulite wrapping at home, you need to prepare long polyethylene thin film sheets (buy a product film) with a width of 20 to 30 cm, a blanket or a warm blanket, an anti-cellulite wrapping agent that will be applied to the skin and a paper hand towel. The composition of the anti-cellulite wrapping agent is as follows (here we consider the most available variants):
- Finished mud (dirt based on clay, Dead Sea mud, thermal, etc.) or the same clay.
- Brown algae (now sold in supermarkets and in all pharmacies). The most popular algae in anti-cellulite wraps are laminaria, spirulina, fucus.
- Anti-cellulite cream or oil (can be prepared by yourself, or purchased ready-made).
- Green tea
- Ground coffee.
As you can see, compositions can be very different foranti-cellulite wraps: recipes are very diverse and effective. It will be much more effective if the anti-cellulite wrap at home is done after using a cream that "burns" fat, or a thermoactive gel with the theobromine or caffeine (before the wrap itself, neither cream nor gel wash off). Next, you need to wrap the film with the places that are exposed, (preferably wrap it in a spiral direction from the feet to the groin area) and lie down for 25-30 minutes (but no more!) For a warm blanket or blanket. Then again, the cream. Then take a shower, and be sure to go back anti-cellulite cream on all available problem areas. Such creams are better to have several. Since the wrap with anti-cellulite cream is very powerful in anti-cellulite treatment, it is recommended only to adults, but in this case, due to the release of fatty-cleavage products and toxins into the blood, first there may be a rash and irritation on the skin, exacerbation of various chronic diseases, dizziness and weakness, increased heart rate. This all, of course, will pass and then there will come an improvement, but still, if such reactions occur, it is worth consulting with your doctor. How often can I wrap? After two or three days, the course is no less than twelve procedures.
Recipes of anti-cellulite wraps
They are different: ranging from simple wraps with anti-cellulite cream, bought at the pharmacy, including anti-cellulite chocolate wrap and anti-cellulite wrap with coffee, not ignoring the anti-cellulite wrapping with blue clay, and also with algae and honey.
