Your skin is constantly renewing itself and when this happens, dead cells may accumulate on the surface. If nothing is done about those dead cells, the skin can start to look dull and without glow. It can also lead to breakouts, grimy feet and other problems. Your skin is the body’s largest organ and it’s important to look after it. A full body exfoliation is not only healthy for your skin, but it also feels great. Afterwards, you will feel more relaxed and your skin will have a nice glow.
Depending on your preference, the treatment can last between 30 minutes to an hour. During that time, a deeply exfoliating scrub will be applied to your skin to remove the dead skin cells and clear the pores. The scrubs used are usually sugar or salt based and may have other ingredients like wheat bran. These added ingredients are added to leave your skin softer for longer periods of time after the treatment. After the scrub is applied to the skin, it will be wiped off with a damp cloth to reveal your brand new skin. After the treatment, you will have access to a shower to wash off any scrub that may still be on your skin so you can leave the clinic feeling clean.
A full body exfoliation has many amazing benefits, but it is an abrasive treatment and you may need to be mindful of your skin conditions before having the scrub applied to your skin. If you have very sensitive skin, eczema or psoriasis, let your therapist know beforehand.
If you’re someone that may have a spray tan occasionally, you probably would like to know that a body exfoliation is a great way to prepare your body for the tan. Because the exfoliation can leave the skin more uniform and clean, your tan will look even and last longer.
To get your body looking even more healthy and relaxed, you can always combine the body exfoliation with many of our amazing massages.
