3 Good Reasons Why Scrubs Get It Done!

It’s interesting that many of us will make regular appointments at the spa or salon to get a facial but very few even think about making an appointment for a body scrub.

A body scrub is like a facial for the skin. It involves scrubbing the skin a specially formulated oil or cream that contains certain abrasive material such as sugar, rice bran, salt or even coffee grounds. This can have the most surprising benefits, from younger looking skin to reduced cellulite and a more relaxed you!

Benefits Of Body Scrubs

Leaves the skin feeling smooth and soft – When you use a body scrub, the abrasive material in the scrub exfoliates the skin, removing the outer layers of dead skin cells. When the outer layers are sloughed off, it automatically promote the growth of new cells. At the same time that the abrasive ingredients are exfoliating the skin, the emollients in the scrub work to moisturize the skin, leaving it feeling and looking soft, smooth and glowing.  This dual action of a body scrub is unique.

Stimulates circulation – The movement involved in scrubbing also boosts blood circulation and movement of lymphs, which helps to get of stubborn cellulite and enhances skin tone. After a body scrub session, you will feel as good as you look. As for getting rid of cellulite, that itself is one compelling incentive to call your spa and book that body scrub!

Helps you feel relaxed – A body scrub is not a massage and should not be mistaken as such. The scrub is not massaged into your skin but gently applied and rubbed into the skin. However, when combined with a massage, the benefits are amazing. Getting a scrub before a massage helps you relax and prepares your body for a massage. The kind of scrub that will be used will depend on the effect you wish to achieve. A licorice based body scrub is cooling and balancing. A rose based body scrub can leave you feeling younger and more relaxed. A milk-based body scrub acts as an effective moisturizer and leaves the skin looking soft and supple.
