What is a scrub?
A scrub or body polish is a spa treatment which exfoliates the skin on your body leaving it feeling fresh, smooth, moisturised and soft. An abrasive product is rubbed vigorously, and massaged across and into your skin, and is then rinsed away to reveal a moisturised layer of fresh, clean and smooth skin.
What is a scrub good for?
There are many benefits to a body scrub or polish. 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 moisturizes 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
it prepares your skin for an even tan
it opens the pores and wakens the skin before a wrap or mud treatment
the oils used can relax or stimulate your senses ready for any similarly-focused treatment that you might be having afterwards.
