Body scrubs are a great way to keep your skin healthy and beautiful. Body scrubs are basically the exfoliation of skin, which is the removal of the oldest dead skin cells that cling to the skin’s outermost surface. Exfoliation and scrubs are not only an important part any facial, but should also be considered as a part of a body treatment. When done correctly, exfoliation leaves the skin feeling smoother and fresher looking.
Why Is Exfoliation Important? The skin is constantly generating new skin cells at the lower layer (the dermis) and sending them to the surface (the epidermis). As the cells rise to the surface they gradually die and become filled with keratin. These keratinized skin cells are essential because they give our skin its protective quality, but they are constantly sloughing off to make way for younger cells. As we age the process of cell turnover slows down. Cells start to pile up unevenly on the skin’s surface, giving it a dry, rough, dull appearance. Exfoliation is beneficial because it removes those cells that are clinging on, revealing the fresher, younger skin cells below.
Body Scrubs at a Spa are more thorough and tend to leave your skin softer because the therapist works longer and gets into areas you can’t reach easily, like the middle of your back. Body scrubs at a spa are usually combined with an application of lotion or short massage, which is relaxing. First, your massage therapist rubs the aromatic scrub into your skin, removing those pesky dead skin cells and leaving your skin baby soft. After ten to fifteen minutes of this relaxing massage, the therapist drapes you with plastic and leaves you to think your own quiet thoughts for about twenty minutes as your scrub goes to work at hydrating your new skin. After that, the exfoliant is removed, and you will be left with smooth, soft and radiant skin. It’s recommended you get a body scrub at a spa every 1-3 months and maintain at home.
