A body scrub treatment can be described as a facial for the body. The aesthetician exfoliates and moisturizes the client’s skin. Clients may get just the body scrub treatment, or they may get the scrub in conjunction with another treatment, like a massage or a body wrap. Body scrubs are becoming more and more popular due to their non-invasive nature and their effective results.
What Happens During a Body Scrub Treatment?
The client is typically positioned face-down on a table. During the body scrub treatment, the aesthetician will use an abrasive like magnesium or sea salt mixed with massage oil and aromatics like essential oils. Body scrubs that involve sea salt are sometimes called “salt scrubs,” “sea salt scrubs,” or “salt glows.”
The aesthetician may start by putting the abrasive on the patient’s back and the backs of their arms and legs. The abrasive acts as an exfoliant that removes dead skin cells. The aesthetician will massage the abrasive into the client’s skin. The client can also flip over so the aesthetician can work on their other side.
After the client has rinsed off, or been rinsed off, the aesthetician can apply lotions or creams that help to moisturize the skin. Body scrubs usually take around 30 minutes. However, this varies depending on what is being done.
What are the Benefits of Body Scrubs?
A body scrub treatment exfoliates dead skin cells and, thus, removes flaky and hard skin, leaving soft and smooth skin. It also opens the skin’s pores in preparation for a subsequent treatment or body wrap. Since the aesthetician typically massages the client during the treatment, a body scrub session can also stimulate the flow of their lymph and blood.
