Apple cider vinegar is amazing in many ways. One of those ways it weight loss. It helps detox the body while making the skin soft. Here is a great new way to use apple cider vinegar.
In a small bowl, mix 1/4 cup of lotion with 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar. It should look like the picture below. You don’t want to skip this next step because it is very important. Take a hand towel and wet it down with water as hot as you can stand it. Wring out the excess water then place it on the area you want to wrap for a few minutes until it cools. This opens up the pores, making the wrap twice as effective. It is worth the few extra minutes, trust me.
Immediately after, spread the mixture in a thick layer over your skin in the area you want to reduce but do not rub it in. Wrap the area with several layers of clear plastic wrap then use ace bandages to wrap on top of that. Make this process much easier with the tutorial below.
Leave the wrap on for around 6 hours. Rest and relax while you have the wrap on. You can move around but keep it to a minimum or your wrap may roll up or the contents squeeze out. If you do then this will be your reward.
Bonus tutorial for frequent wrappers:
When I do a wrap I end up using 4 ace bandages and I was finding it a pain in the butt so I decided to make them into one long bandage to make my life incredibly easier.
All you need is some fabric glue. Start with two of the bandages and add a little glue to the edge of one of the bandages, like this.
Simply press the two ends together and let it dry for several hours. Once dry, repeat with your two new double rolls and allow that to dry for several hours.
Congrats. You now have one large wrap. I had two sets of bandages and did both at the same time. The fabric glue should be strong enough that you don’t need to reinforce it but you can if you like. You shouldn’t be wrapping yourself tight enough that it pulls on the bond anyway. If you have a sewing machine and that is easier for you then feel free to sew them together instead of using glue.
