Many women pay a lot of money to receive special skin treatments at spas, which promise to reduce weight and trim inches. For example, a Saran wrap girdle is often wrapped around vitamin E oil to help shrink down the midsection. Instead of spending a fortune on this treatment at a spa, you can save money by creating the same treatment at home using materials that can be found at any grocery store.

  1. 1

    Pour 2 tbsp of vitamin E oil into your hands, then massage the oil deeply into the skin around your waist and abdomen. Vitamin E oil is highly nourishing and can decrease water retention in the skin to allow it to shrink down slightly.

  2. 2

    Wrap Saran wrap tightly three to four times around your waist and abdomen, maintaining the width of the wrap. This will create a girdle around the vitamin E oil, sealing the moisture and nutrients against your skin.

  3. 3

    Wrap a heating pad around the Saran wrap, and allow the heat to penetrate the cling film for at least 20 minutes.

  4. 4

    Remove the heating pad, then allow the Saran wrap to cool down completely.

  5. 5

    Unwrap the cling film girdle from your skin, then wipe off the remaining vitamin E oil using a washcloth.
