A 10 Minute Trick to Get You into Your Skinny Jeans before a Party
Have you ever had one of those evenings when you were in a hurry to get dressed into a pair of skinny jeans or a tight dress before a party, but either the zipper refused to close or the clothing threatened to burst at a seam? As it turns out, Dr. Oz recently televised a trick that can make you go from bloat to beauty in just 10 minutes so that you can fit into those skinny jeans after all. His secret? Epsom salt.
“Epsom salt is a secret some plastic surgeons do not want you to know about,” says Dr. Oz. “Because people who have tried this say it could put scalpels out of business.”
With Dr. Oz was special guest Sharon Giese, M.D., a cosmetic plastic surgeon to help explain to viewers that not only are there non-surgical secrets to making you look younger, but beauty tricks that can work in a pinch when your clothing feels like it’s taking a bite out of you.
“Of all of the things I have done on this show, this might be the most surprising. I thought it was a cockamamie crazy idea to get in Epsom salts to lose waist and thigh size. But when I spoke to all of these experts who say it works, I thought we’d try it live,” says Dr. Oz. “This is unbelievable. It’s remarkable.”
Dr. Oz explains that taking a bath in Epsom salts has been found to take inches off of a body that suffers from a lowered metabolism and increased weight gain or belly bloat. According to Dr. Oz, Epsom salts work by drawing out the excess fluid in your body that causes bloating.
Dr. Giese tells viewers that the added benefit of taking a bath in Epsom salts is that it is actually good for the body.
“I love Epsom salts. They are anti-inflammatory, and the salts are magnesium and sulfate and so those salts soak into your skin—and the skin is porous—and so it pulls out all the toxins and extra fluid and cellular waste…anything that is a detox is great,” says Dr. Giese.
Dr. Giese tells viewers that the way to prepare an Epsom salt bath is to bring the bath water to just below your body temp between 94 and 97 degrees Fahrenheit and then add 2 cups of Epsom salt to the bath water before stepping in for a relaxing and detoxing soak for 10 minutes.
To show that this trick really works, Dr. Oz had a special guest participant take a 10-minute Epsom salt bath on stage. Before entering the bath, the participant had a waist measurement of 41 inches and a thigh measurement of 27.5 inches. After soaking in the Epsom salt bath for 10 minutes, she emerged and measured in at just under 40 inches in the waist and just under 26 inches in the thighs.
“It’s a great temporary fix,” says Dr. Giese.
“If you stay longer, you don’t get smaller, by the way. Otherwise, we would have women shriveling up like raisins in a few hours,” jokes Dr. Oz.
