We live in a body conscious world that’s why there are so many suggested methods for slimming down. And one that is gaining a lot of attention, mainly because it is very cheap, is the use of body wraps.

- When ready, wipe the mixture in the areas where you want to slim down, such as on your tummy (where it works best), thighs, and arms.
