A honey wrap is an all-purpose cellulite remedy that helps dissolve fat deposits without traumatising the skin.
Pros and cons of the honey wrap procedure
Opinions/feedback from cosmetologists
The disadvantages include the presence of contraindications to the honey wrap. Honey is a food product and there is a risk of allergy. Another disadvantage is the rather long period of application of the wrap itself. Depending on the individual, it may even take up to 2 hours.
Opinion of authoritative sources on honey wrap
Honey wraps are divided into two types:
Cold - this involves the use of unheated raw materials applied to individual areas. In addition to applying the honey to the body, it involves active movements to warm up the muscles. The treatment is effective when cellulite is not too noticeable.
Hot - application of the material warmed up to +40 ... +45°C on parts of the body where cellulite is more visible and covered with cling film. After all manipulation wrap up with a warm plaid and lie down. The procedure takes 30-40 minutes.
Carrying out the honey wrap procedure
The skin should be cleansed with a scrub, exfoliated and massaged, and steamed under hot water.
Then apply the honey to the problem areas and wrap tightly in clingfilm. The wrapping time is twenty to thirty minutes. Then rinse off the rest of the honey and rest for 20-30 minutes. Do not go outside immediately after the procedure.

In other reviews, initially slim girls lost 3cm immediately after the wrap. I was at least expecting this result...alas and ahh.
If your goal is to get in shape quickly, a honey wrap can help. I think it's a good way to lose weight, even if you're lazy.
If you perform the honey wrap procedure yourself, a jar of honey will cost you about 150 roubles and will last for about 10 treatments. A salon treatment will cost you around 500-700 roubles per treatment.

Honey wrap reviews
The honey wrap procedure is popular with both women and men. This is a great chance to make yourself or a loved one happy or make a useful gift.
How the procedure is carried out
- Skin cleansing. Before wrapping, it is imperative to prepare the skin by exfoliating and lightly massaging it. This helps to get rid of keratinised cells, which helps the honey to absorb better into the skin. After a hydrotherapy or sauna, the skin is completely ready for the application of the honey mixture.
- Preparation of the mixture. For optimal results, honey is heated to room temperature and can be combined with various additional ingredients: essential oils, healing mud, plant extracts (this is individually selected for each client)
- Wrap. Apply a thin layer of the mixture to the problem area or the whole body, then cover it with a plastic sheet for half an hour
- Removing the mixture. After the time has elapsed, a light relaxing massage is given, which completely relieves fatigue. Rinse off the remains of the mixture in the shower, then blot (not wipe) your body with a towel. Do not go outside for 20 minutes to maintain the effect.
With its amazing properties, honey helps to solve several problems at once - not only to get your skin in proper condition, but also to get rid of extra pounds. The honey wrap for weight loss is one of the most popular spa treatments, as in addition to its high results, it is completely painless and pleasant, which is very appealing to women.
By penetrating the skin, honey helps accelerate the breakdown of fat and has a lifting effect, restoring firmness to the skin. Already after the first session, a reduction in body volume is noticeable, with an average loss of 0.5-1kg.
This is a great way to get into great shape in a short period of time. And if this procedure is done in conjunction with a weight loss programme, the results will be amazing. After all, during weight loss the skin loses its elasticity, sags and stretch marks may appear, and the honey wrap will eliminate such unpleasant consequences of weight loss.
Honey wrap is considered to be the most effective treatment as honey is perfectly absorbed into the skin and from there it penetrates deep into the dermis and further into all tissues of the body. This improves cellular metabolism, blood supply and elasticity of blood vessels, as well as their trophicity and permeability.
All these processes combine to regenerate and rejuvenate skin tissue, stimulate local immunity and neutralise free radicals and harmful skin micro-organisms.
A honey wrap is part of a comprehensive programme for cellulite removal, general relaxation and cleansing of the body of toxins. A honey wrap is prescribed for many people, either as a separate treatment or in combination with other cosmetic measures.
Honey is often used in combination with other products: mustard, essential oils, dairy products, herbal extracts, apple cider vinegar, yeast, therapeutic mud and algae.
Wraps are made with linden, buckwheat, walnut or flower honey.
