The multitude of cosmetic product lines might confuse you and make the selection of the best formulas extremely difficult. However, it seems that numerous skin care specialists will recommend the use of natural ingredients rather than that of complex and chemical-based compositions.

Once a week, pamper your body with a similar soothing body wrap. In this case, mash 2 medium sized bananas and apply the mask on the delicate spots. Your breasts, abs and decolletage definitely need similar treatments both if you struggle with saggy skin or wish to prevent its appearance. Cover the paste with cellophane to make sure it stays on properly. Leave the banana on for 15 minutes and finally wash it off with lukewarm water.
Oatmeal and Buttermilk Wrap
Use the most common household ingredients to create the most soothing skin firming wraps. In order to pamper your skin with another nutritive facial, mix ½ cup cooked oatmeal with ¼ cup buttermilk. You can cover the area with cellophane, a linen cloth or you can leave it bare too. The lactic acid from the milk has a natural astringent effect. Wait until the mask dries and finally wash it off with tepid water. You’ll notice that your skin feels more tighter and super-soft.
Papaya Body Wrap
Papayas rich in a particular enzyme called papain have a miraculous effect on the composition of our skin. Revitalize your complexion by using a similar fabulous recipe. Create a puree of papaya and apply it on your cleansed skin. Cover the paste with cellophane and let it mix with your natural oils. Leave the wrap on for 20 minutes, then rinse it off with warm water. Thanks to the alpha hydroxy acid from this fruit, the result will be simply magical.
Herbal Tea Wrap
Use your favorite herbal teas to create a soothing and firming body wrap. Grab a medium bowl and fill it with warm water. Add a cup of your fave natural ingredients (chamomile, mint, lavender or ginger) and put the lotion aside for 4-5 minutes. Use a towel and dip it into the solution, extract the fluid excess and wrap the towel around your body. Relax and keep on the towel for 15-20 minutes. Finally, you can take a revitalizing shower or wipe off the wrap with a wet cloth.
