Body Wrap is also referred to as a body cocoon or body mask is a beautifying body treatment created to enhance the health and appearance of skin, and/or reduce body measurements.
The treatment starts with the body exfoliation, either by dry brushing, salt scrub or body polish to remove dead skin cells to allow the nourishing products to penetrate into the skin.
This is followed by a nourishing oil or mineral-rich formula which is applied to the entire body.
The entire body is then wrapped in cotton, mylar bandages or a plastic film. This promotes the extraction of dirt, toxins and excess water from the skin.
The benefits of body wraps are many: to condition, intensively moisturise, exfoliate, detoxify, tone and tighten skin, and take inches off the body frame instantly. Please note that the slimming effect is only temporarily due to the loss of excess water.
