When I first saw this little DIY, I was very skeptical as anyone else would be. However, after seeing the results, I am pretty convinced that this one is a real winner. Nicole Skyes decided to test out the popular beauty hack, the “Saran Wrap Body Wrap.” The theory is that wrapping your “trouble spots” with sandwich wrap overnight can reshape and slim the area. I know what you’re thinking, anything that promises weight loss overnight is probably either really unhealthy or a scam, and Nicole was just as wary.
The beauty guru first massaged her tummy and thighs with coconut oil. Then she wrapped each area with the clingy wrap. Nicole put on her pajamas and then went to bed. Although she admits it was a little uncomfortable, she did eventually fall asleep. The next morning, she unwrapped the plastic. Even she was stunned by the results. Nicole noticed that her tummy was more toned and defined, and that her thighs looked more trim. After the little experiment, she decided that this in fact was a beauty hack and that it worked.
However, Nicole does add a little disclaimer. “This is a beauty hack, but with strings attached. You are sweating out water weight, you’re not going to lose a tremendous amount of weight overnight,” she says. “That’s not how the body works. If you want to lose weight, you have to work out, you need to watch what you eat.”
What the body wrap does do is help speed you along in that process. It’s not a miracle worker, but it will help.
