Benefits of a Salt Scrub Massage

At Spa Experience you can enjoy the health giving qualities of the Elemis Exotic Lime and Ginger Salt Glow. It feels amazing and uses sweet smelling oils and lime and ginger salts but do you know what the actual physical benefits of a Salt Scrub Massage are?

Many salts, such as magnesium sulfate, contain minerals that can reduce inflammation. When mixed with oils, as part of a Spa Experience scrub treatment, salt can replenish tired and dry skin.

An exfoliating salt scrub massages also removes dead skin cells which can otherwise become hard. If left untreated, dead cells make the skin stiff and crusty. Exfoliation removes dry, flaky, dead skin and reveals the supple soft skin beneath. The pores are also left unclogged of dirt and bacteria that can build up over time. Salt has anti-bacterial qualities, so it’s helpful for maintaining bacteria-free skin and preventing itchiness. The same abrasive friction between the salt and skin which causes exfoliation, also encourages the circulation of blood. That’s what gives the skin an attractive and rosy post-scrub glow.

This process of removing dead skin and dirt also encourages the regeneration of new skin cells. The body is stimulated to produce new healthy skin cells which tightens the skin and can make it look younger and firmer. All these benefits combine so that after you’ve had a Spa Experience salt scrub massage, your skin is cleaner, softer, feels firmer and looks rosier and younger. Do you need any more reasons?
