What is a body scrub and how does it benefit you?
  Posted: 6/24/2018

There are many benefits to a body scrub or polish. A body scrub will exfoliate your skin, sloughing off dead skin cells and rubbing away hard and flaky skin, leaving it feeling soft and smooth. Scrub or polishing products usually include an oily base which moisturises and soothes your skin as it is scrubbed.

 


A scrub can be really invigorating as well, and improves the circulation of blood and lymph to the surface of the skin, helping to fight cellulite and improve your skin tone.

 


Some added benefits of body scrubs:

-A good body scrub or polish forms the basis of other body treatments.

-It prepares your skin for an even spray tan.

-It opens the pores and wakens the skin before a wrap or mud treatment.

-The oils used can relax or stimulate your senses to be ready for any similarly-focused treatment that you might be having afterwards.

 


How to prepare:

There's nothing you need to do before you go except have a shower. This is more as a courtesy for your therapist. You will be able to keep your underwear on, and they may give you disposable underwear if requested. The therapist will keep you covered and will only expose the areas they are working on as needed. 

 


Precautions:

Scrubs and body polishes are suitable and safe for just about everyone. It's not an invasive treatment, and doesn't involve you assuming any odd positions.

You should not have a scrub if you have cancer or if you have a fever. You should also seek expert advice if you are allergic to anything or have a skin condition of any kind. Anyone with fragile, broken or sunburnt skin is well advised to skip this treatment as well, as a very vigorous scrub may hurt more than heal, however this is really something that your therapist will take into account. Some conditions make some products, and some kinds of scrub a bad idea for you.

As with all spa treatments, make sure you are clear about any medical condition you have, or treatment you are receiving, so that you can be sure of a treatment that is safe and appropriate for you.
