Recently, Wailani's shared that the #1 tip for smooth legs when shaving: Exfoliate! You'll see below that the It Works! body wraps also say that the first step is to exfoliate. When I looked into the products that have before and after pictures showing tightening and firming in as little as 45 minutes, I was happy to find similar ingredients in Wailani's products, such as green tea and jojoba oil. What I liked best about the claim is that it does not dehydrate, which can gives false results, but instead delivers natural ingredients topically to improve skin appearance and we already know from the International Association for Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine, that the caffeine in green tea has been seen to reduce dimpling due to cellulite.
When I tried it, no there are no before and after pictures, I decided to use Wailani's Golden Pineapple Body Scrub to exfoliate before use, high in Coconut Oil, which has its own healthful properties. I can tell you that applying the wrap was super easy, unlike my plastic body wrapping skills. The aroma was pleasant, which must be from the Rosemary and Eucalyptus oils. Over an hour later and I was still feeling a pleasant cooling sensation, so I left it on overnight, as the instructions suggest. Even though I did not take pictures, I did take measurements and can tell you that the next morning, there was a 1 cm difference, a nice confirmation of their tightening and firming claim.
So now that I've peaked your interest, here's some more information from one of Lauren Radatz, an Independent Consultant for It Works! Global:
Becoming Healthy was my goal after I had my children. Each pregnancy took it's toll on my body, with each one making it more difficult to lose weight. Eating healthy and exercising became my passion, and teaching others how to achieve their fitness and weight-loss goals became my hobby. After doing a lot of research, I found It Works! a business that I wholeheartedly believe in. It Works!

Also, for signing up with It Works! as a distributor or a customer, you have access to FITworks. Which includes daily exercise routines, meal plans, grocery lists, recipes, and support from our Fitworks team. I'm really excited about my Business and how it's helping me continue a healthy life.
I had the chance to try and use Wailani's Mango Green Tea Body Scrub. The scrub was amazing, it left my skin feeling soft and smooth, while feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. The smell of the scrub was delicious! Even after the shower, I can still smell a tropical oasis. I also Love the fact that all the body scrubs are made of all natural ingredients. The number one thing to get optimal results for the wrap was to use all natural soaps or body scrubs, so I exfoliated my belly before I wrapped last night, with the Mango Green Tea Scrub. My belly still feels nice and smooth!
How to get Optimal Results from the wrap:
1) Take a hot shower and exfoliate your targeted area, just before wrapping. Do NOT use soap with lanolin. It’s best to use all-natural soaps or body scrubs. If you don't have any it’s better to just use a hot wash cloth without any soap at all.
2) If you take medications of any kind (including birth control, Tylenol, Ibuprofen, or prescriptions) do not wrap within 3 hours of taking them.
3) Drink plenty of water!! This is a MUST!!! The recommended amount is half of your body weight in ounces. When I wrap, I use our Greens as well as drink plenty of water. The Greens detoxify, alkalize, and promote pH balance within the body. So you're getting rid of more toxins while wrapping.
4) Do not sweat while you are wearing the wrap. You want the natural ingredients to absorb into your pores, not be pushed out. So just relax. Wear the wrap a minimum of 45 minutes. Approx. 80% of the ingredients will be absorbed into your pores during the first 45 minutes so it’s perfectly fine to wear the wrap longer. The longer it can stay on the better, so sleep in it if you want!
5) Take before and after photos! Front view and side view
