What is a body scrub?
If you have never experienced a body scrub before, you may be wondering what it actually is and what it involves? A body scrub is a type of beauty treatment carried out at day spas and massage facilities around Australia (and the world) that involves exfoliating and cleansing the skin. It is the perfect pick me up for your skin to leave it radiating and to rejuvenate your body. It is often done in conjunction with a number of other services such as facials, massages, manicures and pedicures, and other body treatments.
What does a body scrub do?
Depending on the day spa where you have booked your body scrub treatment, locations may offer different package options that serve different healing purposes for the body. For example, there are many different types of scrubs that can be used (that also promote natural ingredients) and each of them are used to enhance your body differently. These include healing honey and sea salt to soften your skin, aromatic coffee body scrub to detoxify your skin, or a Bali style scrub to relax and replenish your skin. A body scrub can also be used in combination with other treatments to help maximise results. They can be used to soften your skin which is then followed by a massage to help release any tension in the muscles. The organic body scrub is also beneficial in removing dead skin cells, to reveal a brighter, smoother skin texture whilst using organic and natural ingredients.
How much is a body scrub?
At RedBalloon, our range of body scrub Australia wide experiences vary in price starting at as little as $180 for a whole body scrub, body mask and cocoon wrap package. These experiences range through to $350 for the ultimate package including a mini facial, body scrub, spa, pedicure and manicure. If you’re after a couples body scrub package, it will cost you $249 for 2 people and includes a full scrub, milk bath and Geisha massage.
How long does a body scrub last?
The timing of a body body scrub experience can vary depending on the day spa you have booked at and if you have other treatments included in your package. At RedBalloon you’ll find our body scrubs last from one hour, through to three and a half hours for the ultimate package that includes other treatments. You’ll also find experiences that are 75 minutes, 105 minutes, two and a half hours and more, which means there are plenty of options available so you can pick the perfect body scrub for whatever your needs.
How often should you get a body scrub?
A body scrub is considered a beneficial beauty treatment because it is a great body exfoliator and an amazing way to help cleanse your skin. It is important for your skin care but it shouldn’t be done too frequently as it can damage the young skin layer after the dead skin is removed from the body surface. If you are using a body scrub at home, you can do this two to three times a week, making sure you use a gentle one if you have dry skin. However, if you are getting a body scrub done at a spa, we don’t recommend going more than once a week. This way you still get all the benefits of the scrub without causing any damage or pain to your skin.
