As we age, cell turnover greatly slows down and layers of dead skin cells can give us an unattractive, old looking complexion. Exfoliating both the face and body on a regular basis helps get rid of the dead cells. This allows serums, moisturizers and vitamins to better penetrate the body skin. We recognize the significance of maintaining its beauty and the importance it plays as the largest organ of the body. Through our scrubs, the skin is exfoliated, giving it a chance to “breathe” again.
However, many women due to business and stress forget to take care of the rest of the body. Many women realized the issue and now opt for a full body scrub. But, what is a full body scrub - you may ask. A body scrub is a popular body treatment that exfoliates and hydrates your skin, leaving it soft and smooth. A body scrub is usually done with an abrasive material like sugar, coffee, rice bran, salt or even pecan hulls; either way it's usually mixed with a massage oil and essential oils. If the scrub uses salt, it's called a salt glow, salt scrub or sea salt scrub.
The person who does this kind of service is called RMT, or Registered Massage Therapist. And the process is known as RMT Body Scrub. If you opt for the RMT Body Scrub, you'll start face-down on a massage table that's covered with a towel, a sheet or on a special wet table with a shower overhead. In that case, you won't have to get up to be rinsed off.
Many people prefer sugar scrubs to the drying salt scrubs. Either way, be careful with the type of scrub you get as some cheap versions have large granules that can tear at the skin. Additionally, don't scrub too often. Avoid over-exfoliating by scrubbing just a couple times a week. If you have sensitive skin, consider a lighter touch.
Scrubbing product variations could be made so that you will still be able to experience a body scrub. If you are in doubt about the scrub product used in the RMT Body Scrub, you can ask the RMT or the spa coordinator regarding their particular body scrub and if it will be accommodating for you. In preparing for the treatment, you will not want to shave any areas, including legs, on the day of treatment. Otherwise, you are more likely to experience a stinging sensation to these areas when the product is applied.
After the scrub, the therapist will either gently remove the remaining, unabsorbed scrub from the areas treated or direct you to a shower where you will be able to rinse off. You will not want to actually shower with any soap as it will remove the oil residue from the scrub and ruin the whole treatment of RMT Body Scrub. Then you will return to the treatment room that has been prepared by the RMT, or Registered Massage Therapist, to begin the portion of the treatment designed to moisturize your skin with a cream.
