Rinse Off Masks & Scrubs

Rinse off body masks administered in a spa are wonderful treatments where one is in covered with products made from algae, seaweed, mud, clay, lotion or cream. Then one is wrapped for 20 minutes to keep in the warmth. Later the product is rinsed off. The body wrap usually ends with an application of lotion (technically not a massage).

Body wraps that use algae, seaweed, mud or clay are detox treatments that help rid the body of toxins through metabolic stimulation.

Often a body wrap begins with exfoliation either by dry brushing or with a scrub. The client lies down on whatever they will eventually be wrapped in – often plastic sheets, but sometimes towels or fabric sheets.  When the time is up, the client is unwrapped and the body wrap removed.  This is why they often take place in wet rooms, equipped with a shower, wet table, or Vichy shower. Once dry an application of lotion will be applied to moisturize the skin.

Rinse off face masks and scrubs are an important addition to a treatment. Many treatments can be simply a toning process whereby the product is applied to the skin and left for the specified time. Or the therapist can apply the product with massage.

Scrubs help to remove the dead skin layer and expose younger looking supple skin. Exfoliating has always been an important step in all skin-care treatments – be it a simple facial or part of a complete spa experience. Exfoliating helps to rejuvenate the skin by exposing the smoother and supple layer of skin after removal of the dead skin layer. 

Facial and body scrubs are generally a suspension of granules (e.g. sea salt, strawberry seeds, sand) in a semi-liquid medium or gel.

Body scrubs are one of the best ways to remove an old skin tan. If the skin has become rough and darkened due to pollution or exposure to dust, a body scrub will remove the rough skin layer leaving a soft and supple skin

Scrubs are generally used in complete spa treatments, which involve the use of exfoliating facial or body scrubs and should be followed by a hydrating body wrap or face mask to nourish the skin and keep it fresh and supple. Scrubs should not be used too often because frequent scrubbing can damage the young skin layer once the dead skin is off the body surface.

A more abrasive scrub helps get rid of the old, dead skin cells on the surface of the skin to allow new skin to regrow. Over time, this exfoliating action can help get rid of fine lines and small wrinkles, because it rids the skin of the damaged surface cells.

Exfoliating, whether it is with a mechanical scrub like Bora Bora sand or a chemical treatment like alpha hydroxy acids, helps correct poor skin tone.  It works by exfoliating away the damaged skin cells where poor pigmentation has occurred to reveal the newer, lighter skin cells beneath.
