The beneficial properties of vinegar have been used in folk medicine and cosmetology for a long time. Our mothers and grandmothers also practiced rubbing, wrapping and massaging using this liquid. In particular, apple cider vinegar is great for losing weight when used regularly.
Weight loss mechanism: how does vinegar wrap work?
Applied to the skin, apple cider vinegar evaporates very quickly from the skin, resulting in a cooling effect. The human body in such a situation is forced to "warm up from the inside" in order to normalize the rate of metabolic processes. It burns a lot more calories than usual, as a result of which fatty deposits are burned and further weight loss occurs.
In addition, regular vinegar wraps can help improve skin tone, which is an excellent way to prevent sagging and stretch marks on the skin while losing weight.
Fruit acids, which are rich in apple cider vinegar, help accelerate the processes of renewal and regeneration of the skin, and the vitamins and minerals that are part of this product improve the nutrition of the layers of the epidermis and increase the rate of synthesis of collagen fibers.
Slimming Apple Cider Vinegar Body Wrap Recipes
Recipe number 1
The easiest recipe for making an apple cider vinegar wrap is to dilute this product with ordinary water in equal proportions. Liberally soak wide strips of soft cloth or drugstore bandages in it. This moist material should be wrapped around both legs from the ankles to the thighs so that the skin does not show through from under the tissue. If necessary, you can additionally wrap the stomach and buttocks.
From above, you will have to wrap these areas with oilcloth or plastic wrap and go to bed, wrapped in a blanket so as to completely block the access of cold air to your torso. The fabric should be left so until completely dry, then unwound and take a warm shower without the use of detergents, and then rinse the body with a decoction of medicinal herbs. At the very end of the procedure, problem areas should be generously lubricated with moisturizer.
To achieve a more noticeable result in the shortest possible time, you can use not only vinegar, but also other natural ingredients that help get rid of this unpleasant cosmetic defect.
Recipe number 2
Take 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, add 3 tablespoons of red clay and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder to it. Mix all ingredients thoroughly. Be sure to wear protective rubber gloves so that the prepared mixture does not bite into the skin and nails and does not leave a specific color. With gloved hands, apply this composition to the skin of the whole body, and wrap it with plastic wrap on top and go to bed under the covers. After about half an hour, take a warm shower without using detergents, but rubbing your skin well with a hard washcloth.
Recipe number 3
In arbitrary proportions, combine apple cider vinegar, wheat or lime honey and pancake flour so that the resulting mass does not resemble too thick sour cream in consistency. Spread the prepared composition on problem areas of the skin, wrap them tightly with oilcloth and leave it for 1, 5-2 hours.
Any vinegar wraps for weight loss should be done every other day. The course of such procedures should include at least 15 sessions. On the days of "rest" it is recommended to do oil wraps or take baths with the addition of herbal decoctions.
Preparing the body for vinegar treatment
To prepare your body, it is recommended to take a warm shower or bath and use a homemade or industrial scrub.
To make your own scrub, use any of the following recipes:
mix fine table salt with any oil used for cosmetic purposes, taking into account
ratio 2: 1. It is recommended to use burdock, castor, peach or almond oil, but they can also be replaced with ordinary olive or sunflower oil;
- take the grounds from the coffee you have drunk and mix it with honey, sour cream, any massage oil or shower gel of your choice. The amount of minor product should be such that the coffee beans dominate the finished product;
- grate fresh carrots on a fine grater and combine with a little semolina. This scrub is better than others for those with particularly sensitive skin.
Contraindications to using apple cider vinegar wrap
Apple cider vinegar is quite effective for weight loss, which, however, can not be used in all cases.
Acetic wrap should not be done under the following circumstances:
- critical days;
- any diseases of the cardiovascular system;
- dermatological diseases;
- any mechanical damage to the skin - abrasions, scratches, burns, wounds, and so on;
- in case of disruption of the work of the female genital organs and the reproductive system as a whole, it is impossible to do wraps on the abdomen.
Of course, you shouldn't think that weight loss is guaranteed if you only do apple cider vinegar wraps. To achieve a noticeable effect, you need to adjust your diet, excluding sweets, baked goods, alcoholic beverages, etc. from the diet, and also include light gymnastic exercises in the weight loss program.
Paying attention to your body, in just a month you will be able to notice how your figure has changed for the better, and its volumes have significantly decreased.
