Winters can be rougher on our skin than Summer.
In the Summer, most people drink cold water or other drinks with ice cubes. We tend to eat more fresh fruit, salads and other foods that contain more water. We may spend more time in a pool surrounded by water. We spend more time outdoors and sweat which causes our thirst center of our brains to have us drink more water. Yet in the Winter, we are inside more. We turn on the heat to stay warm, take warmer showers or baths. We eat more comfort foods and drink hot coffee, tea and such. Those things can take the moisture out of our skin, and leave it feeling drier, flaky or even chapped. So, what can we do to help our skin feel soft, smooth and moisturized even during the Winter?
We can drink more water during the day. We can use a water-based lotion. We can use a humidifier to add moisture into the air we breathe. We can use loofas to help exfoliate. What about those hard-to-reach areas, such as our backs? That’s where I can help. We offer back and body scrubs among our list of services.
The back scrub is a great enhancement to add on to any massage session if you are wanting to exfoliate the dry skin on your back. However, if you are looking for a more relaxing, all-over body experience, we would recommend the body scrub. This service can be a solo service or combined with a massage of your choice.
Have you ever had a body scrub at a spa before? If not, here is a description of the treatment from start to finish.
First, you will need to schedule the treatment.
Upon arriving, you will be asked to choose which scrub you want us to mix for your treatment from wide variety offered. We take you to the treatment room. You will be asked to undress and get under the linens after the therapist has left the room. Once you are ready, we will enter with the scrub mixture you choose. We will begin by using a dry brush to exfoliate the top layer of the skin, epidermis, to remove any dry or flaky skin. Next, we will apply the scrub mixture to the different areas of the body, one area at a time. The mixture is, then, removed by moist steamed towels. Once the majority of the body has been exfoliated and mixture removed, the therapist will leave the room, allowing you to put on the provided body wrap. From there, you will get to enjoy a nice hot shower to remove any remaining scrub. (After all, who would want to leave with scrub still remaining on them.) In the bathroom there will be a waffle robe for you to put on after your shower, so you can re-enter the treatment room for the application of a moisturizing lotion.
This treatment leaves the skin feeling soft, smooth and moisturized.
One last question. Have you scheduled your Body Scrub Treatment, yet? If not, what are you waiting for?
