What Is A Body Scrub?
A body scrub is a popular body treatment that is like a facial for the body. It exfoliates and hydrates your skin, leaving it smooth and soft.
A body scrub is done with an abrasive material like salt, sugar, coffee grounds, rice bran, even pecan hulls, usually mixed with some kind of massage oil and an aromatic likeessential oils. If the scrub uses salt, it might be called a salt scrub, salt glow or sea salt scrub.
What Happens During a Body Scrub?
You will start face-down on a massage table that is covered with a towel, a sheet or a thin piece of plastic. In this case you won't have to get up to be rinsed off.
The therapist will return and start by gently rubbing the exfoliant on your back, the backs of your arms, and the backs of your legs and feet. You may be draped with a towel so only the part she is working on is exposed. Then you turn over and she does the other side.
When the therapist is finished, the exfoliant will be removed with steamed towels; it's good to keep the oil and aromatics on your skin.
