Skinny wraps only work temporarily, as the wrap only removes excess water from the body. The end result is a light feeling and the loss of a few pounds. However, the weight tends to return after a couple of days.
Skinny wraps are promoted by spas as great weight loss alternative. However, the weight loss benefits are only temporary, as the water the skinny wrap removes will be replenished in one or two days. The wrap however, typically helps people relax, and it can moisturize the skin as well. It also may help with skin irritation, resulting in an improvement in skin tone.
