What is a skin care wrap?
Even frequent spa-visitors don’t quite understand the concept of skin care wraps. Well, to start with the basics skin care wraps can be of different kinds: Hydrating skin care wraps, re-mineralizing skin care wraps and detoxing wraps.
The Processes involved in skin care wraps
Skin care wraps, otherwise also known as body wraps always begin with some kind of exfoliation. The exfoliation can be done either through bod scrubbing, dry body brushing, body polishing or salt scrubbing. Depending on your goals, a wrap with the best suited ingredients is then selected, to help you get the perfect glowing skin that you’ve always been wishing for! Once the wrap is on, it’ll stay put for about 20 minutes after which you’ll be asked to wash it off or the chances are, it’ll be taken off of you.
Your best bet is to opt for a skin care wrap done by massage therapists because then, they naturally incorporate massage techniques and that relaxes your entire body like never before.
