A Facial For Your Body

Body treatments cleanse, exfoliate and hydrate the skin all over your body much the way a facial will for your face.

The most popular body treatment is a "body scrub" -- sometimes called a sea-salt scrub or salt glow. As you lay on your stomach, the massage therapist rubs a mixture of sea salt, oil, and aromatics like lemon into your skin. This removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells and leaves your skin feeling velvety soft.

A "body mask," which sometimes takes place after a scrub, involves the application of product over the entire body. If you're slathered with mud, algae, or seaweed and wrapped in a thermal blanket, it's a "detoxifying" treatment that stimulates your metabolic system, speeding its ability to carry away waste products.

A "body wrap" is a wrapping treatment used to treat cellulite. It sometimes has a diuretic effect that aids in temporary weight reduction.
