When there is not enough time in our calendars or green in our wallets to supercharge our batteries in a lavish day spa – what are we to do? While few things compare to being pampered at the hands of a trained dermatologist or indulging in professional spa treatments, you can definitely recreate the experience at home using some quality body therapies. To detoxify and cleanse skin, boost circulation and reveal a radiant and healthy complexion from head to toe, nothing compares with spa body scrubs infused with vitamins, minerals and oils from some of the finest natural ingredients around.
Choose the right organic body scrub products for your at-home body treatments and you will discover a comfortable way to fit advanced body care into your busy lifestyle. A good cleansing, exfoliating and nourishing experience will not only make you look brilliant, it can also help you sleep better, feel less stress and boost both your mood and your energy levels.
If you can reset your age and reveal your real, natural beauty in the comfort of your own home – how do you get started? The success of your very own bath spa depends primarily on choosing the right kind of cleansing and nourishing polish; you should always identify the right body scrub according for your specific skin type. Just like you would choose your body treatments at a professional day spa according to your specific needs, you need to choose your at home scrub products as carefully.
If you have normal skin, a traditional emulsion with Dead Sea salt crystals and pure essential oils will do wonders softening and refining your skin. Salt crystals are known for their ability to gently slough off dead skin cells while improving circulation and opening up pores so that toxins and impurities are eliminated. The natural oils, whether they are from macadamia nut, almond or soybean, will replenish your skin and add invaluable vitamins to prevent ageing and protect against environmental pollutants. If you prefer your scrub to lather up a little more and envelop you with luxurious foam, choose Dead Sea salt scrubs with added soap – it will work the same way as a traditional salt scrub but is easier to apply if you have sensitive skin.
Very sensitive skin can benefit from a cream body scrub that easily rubs onto delicate surfaces and instead of salts contain completely natural exfoliates such as ground kernels or crushed seeds – look for these in the leading bath and body stores such as Sabon®, that sell organic body therapies based on the finest natural ingredients. If you have very sensitive skin, always ask your store for advice on any specific allergies or sensitivities you have and make sure that you then try the product on a smaller area before you apply it to your entire body.
When you have chosen your products you are ready to indulge in your very own, relaxing and rejuvenating spa treatments. Apply your body scrub using gentle yet vigorous circular strokes, and pay extra attention to problem areas such as hips, thighs or upper arms. You can use your hand or a loofah soap, depending on how intense you want your exfoliation to be.
Following your scrub, complete your very own lavish day spa with a nice warm shower followed by a natural body lotion or cream that moisturizes, firms and tones your entire body. You will emerge as rejuvenated as you would from any world-class spa services available.
