Body wraps help exfoliate, hydrate and tone the skin. They are also used to detoxify the body and improve circulation. The basic body wrap is fairly simple – it involves covering the body with sea clay, mineral or herbal solution and then wrapping the body with light sheets. Body wraps work based on two principles-absorption and compaction. Over time your body collects toxins from the foods you eat, the water you drink and the air you breathe. These toxins can build up in your cells and cause illness and other ailments. Body wraps work by first adsorbing these toxins (the solution rubbed into your skin opens up your pores and sucks out the impurities) and then compacting, or tightening, your skin for a more toned look.
The clay and other minerals help to open the body’s pores to draw out impurities. Different body wraps will provide different results. The most common types of wraps offered include seaweed, herbal and mineral.
Overall sea clay is reputed to be the most absorbent, but some complain that is leaves the skin feeling slightly dry in the days after treatment. The other wraps are almost absorbent, but they leave your skin feeling a bit more moist and supple. It is important to drink lots of water before, during and after a body wrap.
