Before doing anything, take photos of the area you are going to wrap. You will WANT these for after. I didn’t even realize how much my body changed because I see myself every day. When I put the before and after photos side by side I was in shock. Trust me, you’ll thank me later.
Measure! Measure! Measure! Standard measuring applies for the arms and legs, of course, just a tape measure around. If you are wrapping your stomach, however, there will need to be 3 measurements taken. (at the belly button, 2 inches above it, and 2 inches below it.)
Take a hot shower right before applying the wrap (you need it to open the pores). Do NOT use any soap or lotion as these can block pores and keep the lotion from properly absorbing. This is especially true of anything Dove related since it’s super moisturizing. My suggestion? Just stand in the shower and let the hot water open your pores. NO washing the area you are going to wrap.
I personally love wiping rubbing alcohol on the area after I’m dried off from the shower. It’s given me the best results.
Apply wrap to desired area with lotion side on your skin. To keep it in place, wrap with saran wrap or something similar (it’s okay to use a tight shirt, shapewear, one piece bathingsuit, etc).
Leave the wrap on for a MINIMUM of 45 minutes to a MAXIMUM of 8 hours. Most people wear it for 3-4 hours. You can also sleep in it, just as long as it does not go past the 8 hours, of course.
While wearing the wrap, drink 1-2 bottles of water.
When you take the wrap off, there will be lotion leftover on the area you applied it to. DO NOT WIPE OFF. Rub it into your skin until it’s basically gone.
Measure the same spots once again.
Take your photos again, and continue taking them each morning over the next 3 days. When you go back to view your before and after, please make sure not to just scroll through your cell phone. That will never show you the results. Use an app like “picframe” and put them SIDE BY SIDE, before any wraps, and then the after.
Drink ½ your body weight in ounces of water EACH DAY for the next 3 days. (ie: if you weigh 200 lbs, drink 100 ounces of water – which is 6 bottled waters) NO EXCUSES. If you don’t see results, you didn’t drink enough water.
Stay awayfromfatty foods, coffee, soda, sugar, smoking, alcohol, etc. during this time also. You don’t want to have the wrap do its job and give you great results, and then turn around and ruin it by eating like crap.
DO NOT exercise while wearing the wrap. This is NOT a wrap that makes you sweat out water weight. The lotion needs to completely get into your skin.
DO NOT shower immediately after removing the wrap. I suggest waiting until the next day to shower.
95% of people will have results on the first wrap. If you don’t, please check to make sure you did everything mentioned above. Smoking will lessen the results. Also, if you are on any medications or it is that time of the month, the wrap results may not be that great if it even works at all. So if you are going to use it, time accordingly
DO NOT apply another wrap until at LEAST 72hours later. The botanical-blend in one wrap continues to work over the course of 3 days, and results get progressively better during this time.
Wrap one area at one time only. When wrapping your stomach, no other wraps can be used. Your arms can be wrapped at the same time by cutting one in half. Depending on the size of your legs, you can choose to cut one in half, or use one full wrap per leg. You cannot wrap your arms and legs at the same time. Legs separately, arms separately, and stomach separately. Not any of them together.
