Spa Body Wrap? The Process and What It Can Do For You!
Lets face it, most of us do not place Body Wraps high on the priority list, opting instead for a massage or facials. However, the benefits of a body wrap makes it well worth your time. Not only are they relaxing but each step, which I will out line below has key benefits to the overall health of the skin and body. A Spa Body Wrap is a type of beauty treatment involving the application of a mask to the body, which is then wrapped in hot towels, mylar, or plastic. You can expect the following processes to be performed:
- Dry Brushing - This is the process of removing dead skin and opening pores, which allows for better absorption of the mask. A firm-bristled brush is used by brushing dry skin, thus also improving circulation.
- Mask - This is a concoction of nourishing or detoxifying ingredients, such as algae, clay, mud, seaweed, or shea butter, that is applied to the body before wrapping.
- Scrub - This is a mixture of an exfoliant, such as sugar, salt, or jojoba beads, and an oil that is worked into the skin to slough dead cells and increase blood flow to the surface.
