General Understandings of Salt Scrub
Of all kinds of body treatment, salt scrub seems to be the most popular. It is easy to buy ready-made salt scrub at supermarkets, cosmetics or any skin-care stores as a product of cosmetic chemistry. However, you can also make your own salt scrub at home.
Exfoliating your skin is the major advantage of having a salt scrub. By using abrasive materials as exfoliators, the outermost layer of dead skin cells is taken away, leaving your skin at softness and smoothness.
If you have a salt scrub at a spa, the therapist often follows some steps. Firstly, he or she rubs certain parts of your body with the mixture of salt and oil. When the therapist finishes, you are asked to take a shower before he or she applies body lotion or a kind of special screams on your treated skin. That is the last step in salt scrub procedure, and what you can do then is to feel and love the soft and fragrant skin you have after the whole treatment.
However, notice that not all your skin dealers are professional therapists. At many states, salt scrub and body treatment may be performed by amateurs or an untrained people. In other words, you might have your skin treated by a schoolboy or a schoolgirl who has not finished school yet, or by an esthetician who is better at facial care. To make sure you have a right expert give your skin treatment, ask for one massage therapist with license before it starts.
Salt Scrub Procedure
A wet room equipped with shower is required for a salt scrub. The main abrasive material in a salt scrub is sea salt. However, other substances such as almond oil, aromatic essential oils like lemon, lavender or mint are often added to create a mixture of both exfoliator and fragrance.
You are either asked to lie on stomach on a massage table covered with a towel or sheet or a thin piece of plastics; or asked to lie face-down on a wet table which has a Vichy shower overhead. Every client is offered a pair of disposable underwear. If you are a man, you are more in need of wearing it. A towel is prepared to help you cover your body so that only the treated parts are exposed for the therapist to work on.
The salt is gently rubbed on your body when you laying facedown. Under the abrasiveness of the salt, dead skin cells are removed. When finishing the exfoliating your back side, the therapist will ask you to turn over to treat the other side. Sometimes they act with quite heavy pressure on the scrub, so let them know if you can't stand it.
After the scrub, taking a shower is necessary to rinse off all the salt. To keep back the oil and aromatics from the scrub, body wash or shower gel is not recommended. In case you have a salt scrub on a wet table, the therapist may help you rinse off with a held-hand shower, or a Vichy shower, a special six-headed shower attached to the table.
A soft towel is prepared for you to dry off after showering so that the therapist can start applying body lotion and cream. Because a salt scrub is not a massage, it doesn't take you much time. If you expect a full-massage, then ask for a longer signature treatment which includes a scrub, wrap and massage. Signature treatment is also known as a "ritual" or "journey".
A salt scrub is often the first step in a body wrap such as seaweed or mud wrap though taking a salt scrub itself is enough. It is considered the exfoliating step that makes your skin ready for skin foods such as seaweed or algae, the products are known to detoxify the body by activating circulation through vasodilation of blood capillaries.
Taking a salt scrub and massage at a same treatment is good for your body. However, there is always one thing to keep in mind: The salt scrub must be taken first so that the massage will calm you down from the stimulation you get on the scrub.
One more thing: Salt is known to be a quite abrasive and rough material. In addition, not all therapists will treat you as gently as you expect. Therefore, in cases your skin is very sensitive, the therapist has a too heavy hand, or the salt scrub is out of your comfort zone, don't hesitate to say it out.
