Winter wrap up

As the chilly weather begins to set in, it is important to remember to moisturize your skin. In colder weather skin needs extra moisture. Body wraps can get a little costly at treatment facilities but are a great way to keep skin nurtured. Here is a cost-effective, at-home remedy sure to keep the frost away, from your skin at least.

Depending on how much of your body you want to cover, your amount of each ingredient will change:

2-6 cups plain yogurt
1-3 cups honey
1-3 cups aloe vera liquid
Wrap material (plastic wrap, a small plastic garbage bag cut open, or a small damp, heated towel)
Blanket or large towel

  • Using an extra-large bowl, mix yogurt, honey and aloe vera in a ratio of 2-to-1-to-1
  • Apply the mixture to your body, you do not have to cover your whole body
  • Lightly wrap those areas
  • Wrap up in the blanket or towel for 20-30 minutes
  • Rinse with warm water or enjoy a soak in the bathtub
Tip: For best results, use the mask once a week until you notice results. Also, if you can, slightly exfoliate before applying the wrap. That way the treatment soaks directly into healthy, new skin.

If you have got a great body wrap mixture, please share with us...................
