When it comes to exfoliation, you have a few choices. You can opt for the old fashioned loofah, or an enzyme peel – or a sugar scrub. There are many benefits to a body scrub or polish. According to the GoodSpaGuide, a body scrub will exfoliate your skin, sloughing off dead skin cells and rubbing away hard and flaky skin, leaving it feeling soft and smooth. Scrub or polishing products usually include an oily base which moisturises and soothes your skin as it is scrubbed.
A scrub can be really invigorating as well, and improve the circulation of blood and lymph to the surface of the skin, helping to fight cellulite and improve your skin tone.
A good body scrub or polish forms the basis of other body treatments and there’s a few benefits to it. Firstly, if you’re planning on getting a spray tan, or going under a sunbed, it prepares your skin for an even tan. If you’re preparing for a spa, it opens the pores and wakens the skin before a wrap or mud treatment. Similarly, the oils used can relax or stimulate your senses ready for any similarly-focused treatment that you might be having afterwards.
