What is a Body Scrub?
A scrub or body polish is a spa treatment which exfoliates the skin on your body leaving it feeling fresh, smooth, moisturized and soft. An abrasive product is rubbed vigorously, and massaged across and into your skin, and is then rinsed away to reveal a moisturized layer of fresh, clean and smooth skin.
Different types of Body Scrub
While there may be variations in how the scrub is given, the main difference between scrubs is usually just the product used.
Salt and oil scrubs use finely granulated salt is mixed with an essential, moisturizing oil. The salt might be sea or mineral.
Sugar can also be used, mixed with oils or creams.
What is a Body Scrub good for?
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. A scrub can be really invigorating as well, and improve the circulation of blood and lymph to the surface of the skin, helping to fight cellulite and improve your skin tone.
Before you go
Do not shave 24 hours before you come in for a body scrub.
Scrubs and body polishes are suitable and safe for just about everyone.
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 sun burnt skin is well advised to skip this treatment as well, as a very vigorous scrub may hurt more than heal.
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.
A body scrub is a great treatment as it makes you look and feel good. After a good body scrub, your skin should feel really soft, smooth and silky; you should feel pampered and energized. It's a great one-stop treatment as well as fitting in well with others, as part of a spa ritual or spa package.
