WHAT IS A KOREAN BODY SCRUB?
Put simply, a Korean Body scrub is a skin care product whose primary function is to remove dead skin cells through exfoliation as well as cleanse the skin and increase the body’s blood circulation. Sometimes a Body scrub is referred to as a
Korean Body exfoliate, Korean Body gloss or Korean Body polish. The exfoliating component needs to be abrasive enough to achieve this but not too strong so as not to damage healthy skin.
BENEFITS OF A KOREAN BODY SCRUB
If you’re not using a Korean Body scrub then you’re missing out on a number of benefits that other skin care products don’t provide. So just what are the benefits of a Korean Body scrub?
Korean Body Scrub Benefit # 1 – Makes Skin Look Fresh And Rejuvenated
Essentially the benefits of using a Korean Body scrub are the removal of dead skin cells from the Body and impurities, leaving you feeling fresh and your skin looking rejuvenated and revitalized.
Korean Body Scrub Benefits # 2 – Makes Skin Look More Youthful
Exfoliating dead skin cells tends to remove the dull and lack luster appearance of the skin. Humans shed skin cells daily (anywhere from 11,000-23,000 skin cells an hour) and it usually takes about 27 to 30 days before new skin cells reach
the top layer of the skin. Using a Korean Body scrub regularly will help make your skin look more vibrant and youthful.
Korean Body Scrub Benefits # 3 – Moisturizing Benefits
Benefits of Korean Body scrubs through the removal of dead skin cells as a result of exfoliation with a mild Korean Body scrub extend to moisturizing as it allows for the easy absorption of a skin moisturizer into the healthy skin. Ideally, the best Korean Body scrub is one that not only acts as a gentle exfoliate but
moisturizes at the same time!
Korean Body Scrub Benefits # 4: Improved Self Tanning
More and more people are using self tanners rather than increase their risk of skin cancer through exposure to the damaging effects of too much sun. The important thing to know here is that to achieve a realistic “fake” tan using a self tanner is to exfoliate with a gentle Korean Body scrub first. If you don’t do this to
remove any dead skin cells then you run the risk of ending up with a blotchy look as the self tanner will darken areas where more dead skin cells aciculate (such as the elbows and knees). If you want a natural looking tan and you use a self tanner then using a suitable Korean Body scrub before applying the tanning
product is essential.
What Happens During Korean Body Scrubs
First you will enjoy a comfortable table shower with no soap to relax before going into the infrared sauna. There you will enjoy a relaxing with the infrared rays penetrating your body to produce the start of detoxifying your body. After the sauna you will be brought back to the shower table where the therapist
starts to scrub you, using only warm water and Korean mitts made of a slightly scratchy viscose material. She will probably show you the thin ropes of dead skin cells that start forming.
She rinses the dead skin away, using hot water, and keeps scrubbing, hopefully until nothing more comes. This can take a while if it’s your first Korean scrub — or you might need two visits.
A Korean Body scrub also includes a fresh cucumber mask, a thorough hair wash, and a rinsing with milk and honey, which is nourishing for the skin.
We use water, scrubbing mitts and milk because it’s gentler on the skin and gets a better results. The scrub helps with the whole detoxification process by “opening up the pores for a deep clean,” and “With the improved blood circulation, the skin is healthier.”
