Hello Sweeties! This is T.J. from Sugar Blossoms and I’m so excited to be here today to share this DIY body wrap with you! School is out and I’m ready for summer but I have a problem: I don’t like how I look in a bathing suit. I’ve been working on losing weight but the fact that I’ve had 3 children has left me with a less-than-stellar stomach . . . if ya know what I mean.

Today I’m bringing you a wallet-friendly version of body wraps. I’ve been seeing these around the internet lately and mentioned them to a friend. She’s from Mexico and said she’s been doing those for years, just not the commercialized type. I tried it one night and lost .5 inches on my gut overnight!

Here’s her “secret recipe” for DIY Body Wrapping. You only need 3 things:

DIY body wrap supplies

  • Lotion (it’s best if it contains something from the ocean: seaweed, kelp, mud. I couldn’t find any, so I just used what I had on-hand.)
  • Clear plastic wrap
  • Bandage wrapDIY Body Wrap on I Heart Nap Time ... lose up to 1-2 inches overnight!

It’s a simple process!

Step 1 – Apply a thick layer of lotion to the area you want to target. {Don’t rub it in completely!} You can do it on your stomach, your thighs, your upper arms, wherever your “trouble spots” are.DIY Body Wrap on I Heart Nap Time ... lose up to 1-2 inches overnight!

Step 2 – Wrap the ENTIRE area with your plastic wrap. I went all the way around my mid-section several times. Make it snug but not tight; you do have to wear it ALL night long.DIY Body Wrap on I Heart Nap Time ... lose up to 1-2 inches overnight!

Step 3 – Now wrap the area with a long bandage of some kind, anything that will keep your wrap in place. Be sure to cover the plastic completely.

The idea behind this is to help your body release water that’s retained due to weather, food consumption; even Mother Nature’s visits. The combination of lotion and plastic helps sweat it out of you.DIY Body Wrap on I Heart Nap Time ... lose up to 1-2 inches overnight!
I’ve only tried it once but I LOVED the result!  Maybe a little something to help get you swimsuit ready.  Let me know how it goes for you!
