Try A Salt Glow Spa Treatment!

A salt glow is most definitely one of the most popular treatments at spas and spa resorts across the world. It is essentially about exfoliating your skin, a treatment which leaves it wonderfully clean and nourished. It is for this reason that people who feel stressed or fatigued and have pretty much worked too hard tend to get all excited about salt glow treatments. They replenish the body’s natural glow.

Be aware that a slat glow is often known by two other names: a salt scrub or a sea salt scrub. We tell you this because it is very easy to be just a little confused by some brochures that may use different terminology to others.

The salt glow treatment is also carrying oil too, along with some aromatic oils such as lemon and lavender. This means that the salt glow, strangely enough for a treatment that has salt in the title, actually hydrates your skin. Again, with a busy and hectic lifestyle like the one the majority of working people have, this is a blessing.

The general practise dictates that a salt glow takes place in a wet room. There will usually be a table or something similar tat you can lie down on. The therapist will have laid out some waterproof sheeting or some other similar material before you arrive. You may well be offered a pair of disposable underwear.

Once you have lain down on your stomach, the therapist will get to work. He or she will rub into your skin a treatment made of the aforementioned oils and the sensual aromatics. There will also be salt in the mixture too. Then the therapist, after giving you a full massage with you on your stomach, will ask you to turn over onto your back. As with all spa practises, your intimate parts will be covered at all times, and the parts that are being worked on will be the only parts on display in any case.

Then comes the part where the salt goes away. You will then be guided to a shower area and asked to take a shower so that all the salt can be washed off your skin. It is highly important that you do not use shower gels or lotions at this point, even if they are there in the shower stall with you. If you are still on the table – which some spas insist on as part of their treatment – the therapist will use a hand held shower or something called a Vichy Shower, which is basically a shower head that is at the same height as the table.

You can of course have the salt glow as a discrete, individual treatment, but it does soften come as part of a package of treatment which includes a body wrap. However you have it, the effect afterwards is quite relaxing. People often report feeling calmer and fully refreshed after having their bodies hydrated by a salt glow treatment, and the shower experience at the end, especially if you are lying down, is often noted as a particular highlight.
