The Beauty of a Body Scrub. If you’re in need of a bit of a boost, and want to combine a delicious massage with an invigorating, skin reviving body scrub, why not give a body scrub treatment a go?
Salt scrubs are fabulous for brightening up dull skin, and a good scrub will help give your skin a zing while giving you all the benefits of a body massage too.
Therapeutic salts like the magnesium sulphate found in some mineral salt body scrubs –are packed with essential minerals that don’t just help your skin, they also help reduce inflammation. When these two powerful ingredients are mixed with oils in the salt scrub, they really help your skin’s condition, nourishing it and giving you a real treat.
Salt scrub massage removes dead skin cells – the cells that if left where they are, can leave skin looking grey and tired. Get them exfoliated away with good quality products and a fantastic massage, and the all of that flaky skin will disappear, leaving you with gorgeously supple soft skin underneath, and the sort of glow that you can usually only achieve with a week in the sun.
A good scrub leaves pores cleaned and unclogged from the build-up of dirt and bacteria. The anti-bacterial qualities of salt are well known – keeping skin clean and free from bacteria that can lead to acne and breakouts, and helping to prevent any itchiness.
A nourishing salt scrubs deeply conditions and gives your skin back its radiant glow. Special massage techniques help the essential oils and conditioning ingredients contained in the scrub to penetrate your skin and get to work. The friction between salt and skin encourages the circulation of blood which gives your skin an attractive rosy post-scrub glow.
Salt also has healing properties if you’re prone to skin conditions like eczema or psoriasis – although we don’t recommend it during a breakout as it can certainly sting if you have any active rashes!
Removing all the dead skin cells during a salt scrub also encourages regeneration of new skin cells which in turn has a tightening effect on your skin, which leaves it looking younger and fresher.
So, next time you book your usual massage, why not book a salt body scrub at the same time and really spoil yourself?
