Body Wrap from Seaweeds

An excellent way to relieve daily stress and to help the body feel new and improved.

 A seaweed body wrap has many advantages that help the body to feel better and remove toxins.

The first step for a seaweed body wrap is to exfoliate the skin.

Traditionally, sea salt is used for the exfoliation process because it is most natural and does not deposit impurities into the skin cells and pores.

After the skin has been exfoliated a wrap of seaweed clay is then applied to the body.

Hot towels soaked in herbal solutions are wrapped around the body to keep the seaweed clay moist. You can leave the seaweed body wrap on from half an hour to an hour depending on the depth of skin toning, relaxation and sweating you wish to accomplish.

The best way that a seaweed wrap helps to detoxify the body is through the sweating process that helps to eliminate impurities from the body. A refreshing drink of juice and seaweed is often drunk during the wrap process to keep the body hydrated and to encourage further detoxification from the inside out.

After the wrap is complete, the excess seaweed wrap mud is wiped off with warm cleansing cloths to be followed by an invigorating and stimulating shower.

This is then followed with a skin toner and then moisturizers to lock in the smoothness that a seaweed body wrap gives to the skin. More refreshing drinks are encouraged to replenish the body of electrolytes and to help with energy.

 

Another advantage to a seaweed body wrap is the benefits to the skin.

Seaweed body wraps contain ingredients essential to good skin care and skin maintenance:

  • Sea salt
  • Sea weed
  • Amino acids
  • Vitamins

Many people feel that their skin has tightened in areas and that fine lines or small wrinkles are diminished from a seaweed body wrap. The heat helps to redistribute fat deposits in the cells, and that is why many people find that the appearance of cellulite is also decreased.
