Epsom salt and cellulite: how to make bandages

Espom salts are most effective in the form of bandages. On the market there are ready-to-use kits but if you want you can also prepare them at home. To do this, just buy sterile bandages and immerse them in a basin with hot water and espom salts . The bandages will be left to soak for a few hours by heating the water several times. In fact, they must be applied quite lukewarm.

The advice is to bandage the legs starting from the ankles and going up. Block everything with cling film and leave on for about 30/45 minutes . Once the time has passed, just remove the bandages and take a shower (preferably with cold water). In this way the legs will get even more benefits thanks to the temperature contrast, which acts on the blood circulation. Apply any moisturizers as usual and that’s it .

The feeling of well-being and lightness will be immediate while to see results in terms of cellulite and orange peel, some bandages will need to be done. However, the skin will be smoother from the first application.
