Alrighty…so I’ve captured your attention with the It Works! Body Wrap, a naturally-based body wrap that works in 45 minutes. But if you’re anything like me, you’re gonna need a little more convincing than a simple “trust me.” When I first saw the It Works! Wrap I had a lot of questions and wanted…..well actually, needed…..someone to tell me more. And while I’ve done my best to answer most of these on my home page, I’d like to explore things a little further here. I’ve been offering the wrap since 2009, and these are a few more questions that I’m commonly asked.
How do I prep the area before applying the wrap?
The best time to apply the It Works! Body Wrap is right after having patted yourself dry from a hot shower. Your pores will be ready to accept the ingredients because they are open and clean. If you are in a party setting, instead of doing showers (awkward!) you can just prep the area with a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol. You may also consider spraying the Hydrating Toner & Freshener to balance out the ph levels of the skin.
How do I apply the wrap?
Simply cut open the package, unfold the wrap and place the lotion side down onto your body. There is no wrong way to position the wrap. So if you are doing your legs, you can either wrap it around the leg or place it vertically. It really just depends where you want to target. After it is applied you may choose to secure it with saran wrap or tight clothing, but that is optional. Wait 45 minutes for initial results and 72 hours for final results. Drink half your body weight in ounces of water to ensure the best results.
How will the Wrap treatment feel?
The It Works! Body Wrap is very soothing. It is probably the most relaxing way to tighten your skin and improve your appearance in just under an hour. But when you first place it on your skin, it may be a little cold. I often prepare my clients by counting to 3 before putting it on their body. After it has had a moment to absorb, you may experience a hot/cold sensation. The feeling is very similar to icy hot, which is an athletic cream for achy muscles. All this means is that the product is working. This feeling will not last long, as your body will get used to it. After taking off the It Works! Body Wrap, you may feel breezy again. This is because the gel that was previously covered by the wrap is now being exposed to the air. Rub in the ingredients in a circular motion until it has disappeared.
How long should I leave it on?
If it is your first time using the It Works! Body Wrap, I suggest that you only leave it on for 45 minutes to test your skin sensitivity to the natural ingredients. For best results, use Defining Gel twice a day, on the days in between your body wrap treatments. Ninety percent of the ingredients are absorbed within 45 minutes, so there really is no need to keep it on for hours or to sleep with it on. Just make sure you are not sweating while you are wearing the wrap. You’ll want your pores clean and free from sweat so that it can fully absorb all the nutrients provided by the It Works! Body Wrap.
Can I sleep in it?
Sure! But please know that ninety percent of the product is absorbed within 45 minutes, so you aren’t really getting MORE out of the product. Although, some people like the feeling of waking up skinny! It’s really a matter of preference, in my opinion.
How do I measure my results?
I prefer to take before and after photos to SEE the results — this is MUCH easier than using a tape measure, and it leaves less room for human error (when you use a tape measure, you don’t always re-measure in the exact same spot, and it’s difficult to keep the tape straight/level across the back all by yourself). You will also be able to SEE the difference in the texture of the skin and the change in the body’s silhouette. (delete the following sentence…. It also allows me to observe the skin tightening and the change in the body’s silhouette.) Just make sure the lighting and the distance between you and the camera is the same each time. Then send me your photos — don’t be shy! I LOVE getting excited with my customers! firstname.lastname@example.org
Do you offer a guarantee?
Because our products produce different results for different people, we do not guarantee specific results nor offer a money back guarantee. Please follow the directions with each product you receive.
What is the secret ingredient that makes the wrap work?
I wish I could tell you, but then it wouldn’t be a secret anymore. 😉 But in all seriousness, I didn’t formulate the product and I am not a Doctor…so I have no idea. But what I can say is that one of the main ingredients that people notice right away is Eucalyptus …in fact, you can smell a gentle fragrance of it once you open the package. Some say it smells like Vicks Vapor rub. This ingredient is key to helping with inflammation and is exactly why a lot of chiropractors and message therapists have decided to carry the It Works! Body Wraps.
What will the wrap do for stretch marks / c-sections / cellulite / varicose veins…
The ingredients in the wrap are considered nutrition for your skin. They are made out of plant extract and will first work to repair any damaged areas. I have seen people with stretch marks, c-section scars, cellulite and varicose veins achieve remarkable results. The solution will first concentrate on softening that tissue to help it smooth out and fade away. Upon applying the It Works! Body Wrap, you may notice that these areas may become bright red. All that’s going on is that the product is concentrating its efforts there. You will notice the color diminishing after 45 minutes and continued improvement in these areas over the next 72 hours.
Can I use more than one wrap at a time?
In most situations, I would encourage you to use only one wrap at a time because it will give you the most dramatic results when zeroing in on a single location. If you are interested in wrapping your arms and legs, it is safe to either cut the body wrap in half and use half on each limb, or to use one full wrap on each area (with a maximum of two wraps per session).
How often do I need to apply the wrap?
The It Works! Body Wrap can be used every 72 hours and should not be applied sooner than that since they are continuing to work during that time.
Will I have to use the wrap for the rest of my life?
No….I tell my clients it’s a lot like Chiropractic care. You may do it a lot in the beginning to get to the results you desire, but after that it’s just maintenance. Once you have achieved the look you are going for, you can use the It Works! Body Wrap on an “as needed” basis after that. Many choose to wrap once a month for maintenance. Maintenance is largely affected by diet and/or exercise or the lack thereof. The healthier you are, the easier it is to maintain. Consider this a great JUMP START to a better you!
Can anyone use it?
The It Works! Body Wraps are formulated for adults, and are not recommended for children. If you have a medical concern, allergies or sensitivities, I recommend that you consult with your physician to answer your questions. Just print out the ingredients list and have him/her look it over (found on the “order” page when you click on “view ingredients”). Additionally, while the It Works! products are safe and effective, I do not recommend that pregnant or nursing moms use the It Works! Body Wraps or Defining Gel. These products, however, are perfect to keep in mind during the post-baby season to quickly get your body back in shape. It worked for me!!!
Can I drink alcohol while wrapping?
I do not recommend drinking alcohol while using the It Works! Body Wraps. Since your body is made up of 60-70% water, the purest way to hydrate your body is by drinking water. It is very important that you are keeping well hydrated during this process.
Can I work out while wearing the It Works! Body Wrap?
Find a time during the day where you will have little to no activity. If you are doing something that will make you break out into a sweat, then you shouldn’t wear the wrap. You want your body to be clean so that the ingredients on the wrap can be absorbed without getting diluted or blocked from perspiration. If you are accustom to brisk walks or light house work, then by all means, don’t let that stop you from multi-tasking. Just think twice about going for a 5k run….
Should I spray tan before or after using the wrap?
If you are not worried about having a whiter tummy, then you can do both at the same time. Simply apply the wrap to the tummy and spray the rest of your body. If you want to have a nice summer glow all over, then I would suggest wrapping first and then spray tanning the next day after you have showered & exfoliated.
Are there any side effects?
Yes….side effects include toning, tightening and firming. LOL! Okay, okay….you want the bad stuff, huh? Well, in very rare cases I have seen a small, red rash develop. Just continue to keep well hydrated and the rash should go away within 72 hours. If it persists, see your physician.
I have a medical condition, will the wraps have adverse effects?
Whenever medical questions are involved, it’s best to ask your physician. Keep in mind that we are a very transparent company and all our ingredients are listed on the packages as well as our website. Feel free to view and print out the list of ingredients here.
I have a question that is not addressed here, who can I talk to?
We have a Product Coach who is available to answer your questions. Simply email her at email@example.com and she will typically get back to you within 24-48 hours. Please know that any medical questions should be addressed by your physician.
