Bring vitality back to your legs, arms, and entire body with a home spa treatment, and become the proud owner of great skin. Exposure to heat and air conditioners, fabric detergents and even the material of some clothes can make skin dry and dull. In addition, other factors like aging, cellulite, or simply neglect can make skin sag and lose elasticity.
A body treatment, similar to a facial that does wonders for the face, can also make exposed extremities, as well as the areas of skin usually hidden under clothes, soft and smooth, and add a healthy glow.
Types of Body Treatments
Body treatments consist of exfoliation, body wrap, and moisturizing massage. There are treatments available at day spas but a home treatment can provide excellent results.
Exfoliation is important for removing dead skin, a particular problem because most of your skin is covered by clothes all the time. In addition, the act of exfoliation or scrubbing gets the circulation going and it’s the secret to healthy glowing skin. Natural body scrubs are coffee grounds, coarse sea salt and raw sugar. Exfoliation should be the last step after a shower; rinse and scrub with cool water to close pores.
- Coffee Body Scrub. Save the morning coffee grounds in a container. When ready to use, simply rub coffee grounds on damp skin.
- Salt Body Scrub. Fill a 1/2 cup plastic container with salt. When ready to use rub salt on damp skin. Rise.
- Sugar Body Scrub. Fill a 1/2 cup plastic container with raw sugar, add a few drops of olive oil and rub over damp skin.

Another step in a body treatment is the body wrap. A detoxifying body wrap improves blood flow, gets rid of toxins through sweating, tones the skin making it look and fell tighter. Body wraps that provide amazing results are mud and seaweed.
Mud and seaweed clean, exfoliate, draws out toxins, hydrates, and improves skin’s texture. Returning elasticity to skin and revitalizing aging skin. Both are available ready to mix with water or try ready to use Sea Spa Black Mud Body Wrap. The procedure involves applying the mud or seaweed all over the body, wrap for up to 20 minutes, and rinse thoroughly. Pat dry slightly and apply body lotion to seal in the moisture.
Improve circulation, get rid of inflammation, and tone skin by massaging problem areas such as arms, thighs, tummy, buttocks, and feet. After a shower, pat dry skin and apply a rich emollient cream to nourish and smooth. Massage in a circular motion from the bottom to top. Slip on flannel pajamas or other loose cotton garment and socks and rest. Skin will be satiny and soft. Good products to try are Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E and Nivea Skin Cream or The Body Shop Shea Butter.
Beautiful skin requires more than applying body lotion, sometimes a little extra effort is necessary for that touchable skin look. A body treatment can add freshness and glow that will dare any woman to show a bit of skin.
