A full body exfoliation, also known as a scrub or body polish, is a treatment which exfoliates the top layer of skin on your body. A coarse product, either sea salt or sugar, is mixed with massage oils or essential oils and is scrubbed vigorously, and massaged across and into your skin. It is then rinsed away to reveal a clean layer of skin underneath.
A full body exfoliation is the foundation of other body treatments as:
-it prepares your skin for an even spray tan by removing dead skin cells.
-it opens the pores before a wrap or mud treatment so that the product can be absorbed.
