How to make weight loss coffee wrap
One of the methods of body care at home is coffee wraps of problem areas. Only ground coffee should be used for them. Fine grinding will provide soft exfoliation of keratinized cells from the skin surface and will contribute to better penetration of nutrients through the skin barrier to the deeper layers, where cellulite deposits are located.
Before doing the wrap, you need to cleanse and soften the skin well. To do this, parts of the body (for example, the waist and hips) are massaged with warm jets of the shower for about 5 minutes, then rubbed with a washcloth of medium hardness until the skin becomes slightly reddened – with a shower cream or gel with exfoliating particles.
About 1 hour, a coffee wrap acts on problem areas – at this time you should rest lying down and try to relax as much as possible. The next step is to remove the film and rinse the coffee gruel under the shower, and then moisturize the skin with a cream, a little more than usual. It is important to correctly complete the wrapping procedure: you should not eat for about 2 hours and not take a shower for 6 hours, so as not to wash off beneficial substances from the skin.
How to make a coffee mix
The coffee wrapping mix is made from 50 grams of natural ground coffee. The grinding must be poured with hot water so that a thick slurry is obtained. This warm gruel should be applied to areas of the body that require correction. With a thin plastic film, it is not easy to wrap the places covered with coffee gruel twice and wrap.
To increase the effectiveness of coffee wrapping, you can add skin-friendly components to the prepared pulp:
- natural honey;
- brown algae powder;
- cosmetic clay;
- cocoa butter, grape seed, sesame;
- essential oils of lemon, grapefruit, rosemary, lavender.
The recipe for coffee wrapping from cellulite with oils: 1 tablespoon of almond oil + 3 drops of lemon essential oil + 2 drops of rosemary essential oil + coffee pulp from 50 grams of ground coffee. Coffee wraps can not be performed for skin diseases, high temperature and pressure, gynecological diseases, as well as an abscess rash or wounds on the skin. The full effect is achieved in 10 procedures that can be performed intermittently in 2-3 days.
