If you have never heard of a body polish, you are not alone. It may not be as recognized as other cosmetic treatments; but it is still very popular throughout the world. So, what exactly is a body polish? Well, a body polish is a spa treatment that exfoliates and hydrates your skin, leaving it smooth and supple (soft). It is not a massage; rather it is more like a facial for your body. A body polish may consist of materials like: sugar, rice, coffee, salt, and/or chopped pecans. One or more of these materials are mixed with massage oils to provide a soothing, aromatic experience. When the polish consists primarily of salt, it is called a salt scrub, or sea salt scrub.
Once your skin has been thoroughly exfoliated, you will be instructed to shower. Following the shower, your esthetician (skin specialist) or spa technician will apply nourishing oils, lotions, and/or creams (moisturizers) to your freshly scrubbed skin. It is important to consult your physician before scheduling body polish. If you are interested in learning more about body polishes you have come to the right place. This article will explain what a body polish, and provide you details on the sessions.
Benefits of Body Polish
Body polish has so many benefits for creating that post-vacation glow all year round.
Sloughs away dead skin cells: Body polish exfoliates skin and removes dead skin cells from the top layer of your skin. This helps your skin look rejuvenated, refreshed, and smoother!
Opens pores to prepare for other treatments: Moisturizers and other skin treatments won’t work if they can’t penetrate your pores. Body polish opens up pores so your skin can receive nutrients from not only the polish, but other treatments.
Promotes skin health: Healthy skin is clean skin that is soft, hydrated and able to breathe. Body polish promotes skin health by preventing blocked pores, encouraging cell growth, and minimizing signs of aging.
Regenerates cells and stimulates new layers of skin cells: Your skin is constantly creating new cells and pushing them up to the surface. Body polish helps reveal these new cells and encourages new growth.
Prepares skin for an even tan: Are you planning on applying self-tanner or getting a spray tan? When your skin is uneven and dry, your spray tan will not apply properly. Body polish helps you exfoliate skin to prepare it for tanning treatments!
Removes dirt, oil, and debris clogged inside of pores: Your pores are like little suction cups for grime. When this grime isn’t removed, it can cause irritation and skin issues such as acne. Body polish helps draw out and remove this grime to keep your pores clean and clear!
Helps skin absorb moisturizers: Have you ever applied moisturizer, only to feel like it didn’t do anything? That might be because it can’t penetrate your skin due to the build up of dead skin cells. Body polish paves the way for a better moisturizer experience!
Prevents ingrown hairs: Ingrown hairs occur when hair grows back into the skin after tweezing or shaving. They’re not only frustrating but also painful. Using body polish can help prevent this from happening!
Creates a better shaving experience: It’s so frustrating to shave and find hairs left behind. Sometimes this happens because of dead skin build up. Using body polish before shaving will result in a closer and more effective shave!
