Ginger is a potent spice with a long history in culinary arts and medicinal nutrition, but did you know that its properties are also ideal for external beauty purposes? Ginger wraps, for example, can help you diminish cellulite and remove excess weight.
Ginger In Beauty
Cosmetically, ginger’s anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and anti-aging properties make it a powerful skin tool in your beauty arsenal. Lethargic, lifeless, droopy, and unbalanced skin can quickly get a healthy boost to revive its appearance and elasticity. Skin cells are stimulated to regenerate. Metabolic processes are accelerated.
Harmful toxins from the skin’s surface are attracted to and swept away by ginger. Ginger’s weight loss results are due to its ability to split fats and draw out excess fluids. Cellulite improvements are due to ginger’s ability to improve micro blood circulation surrounding stubborn cellulite areas, helping to dilute fats. Antioxidant properties in ginger act to rejuvenate the skin’s overall appearance and offer anti-aging support.
Try A Ginger Wrap
One of the easiest and effective ways to infuse your skin with the powerful properties of ginger is to try a ginger wrap. Getting rid of excess weight and improving unwanted imperfections with a ginger wrap is low-cost, can be done in the comfort of your own home, and applied to accommodate even the busiest of schedules.
As with any wrap, you’re also sweating away excess water from your body’s tissues with this ginger version.
How To Make And Apply A Ginger Wrap
Begin by collecting the following ingredients:
- Lotion of your choice
- A fresh ginger root
- Plastic wrap
- Elastic band
Choose a time when you have at least one hour to leave the wrap in place. As you’re selecting your elastic band, ensure that the band is large enough to accommodate wrapping around the treatment area securely without impeding your circulation.
Now, for the application steps:
Step 1: Soak your towel in hot water. Test the temperature of the towel to ensure it’s warm without being uncomfortably hot. Apply to the area you’d like to wrap. This is to open up your pores and prepare for the ginger to be absorbed. Secure the towel in place while you complete step two.
Step 2: Grate your ginger root. Mix the grated ginger with enough lotion to cover the desired treatment area.
Step 3: Remove your towel and immediately apply the ginger mixture to the desired area.
Step 4: Use plastic wrap to fully cover the area. Again, plastic wrap should be applied securely without being so tight that it impedes your circulation. If necessary, you can use the elastic band to finish securing the wrap.
Step 5: Leave the wrap in place for at least an hour. Five to eight hours is an ideal treatment time, however. You may prefer to apply the wrap just before bedtime and allow it to remain until morning.
Five steps and you’re done with your ginger wrap. You’ll be able to see immediate results in your skin’s appearance after just one wrap. For best results with weight, skin appearance, and cellulite, make the ginger wrap part of your regular beauty routine.
