Most people strive for good health, which includes having healthy-looking skin and a fit body with a youthful glow. Body treatments are often a service that gets overlooked, but they are extremely beneficial to us. They provide natural healing benefits for the mind and body, and produce instant results.
Start with an exfoliation — This improves blood and lymph circulation, which helps fight cellulite, and removes dead skin cells, exposing a supple layer of younger skin. It is perfect as a summer treat to promote glowing skin and also helps your tan stay twice as long.
Cover in a body wrap — To feel cocooned in a self-heating mud wrap is a service like no other. The mud used in a lot of these treatments has natural healing properties that stimulate the blood flow and help to rid the body of toxins. Some of the more popular body treatments consist of seaweed or clay. They are packed full of proteins, vitamins and minerals that contour the body and improve the skin’s elasticity. They also noticeably reduce cellulite and deeply nourish the skin.
Finish with a massage — A relaxing massage is a good way to finish a body treatment. Nourishing creams and firming lotions are smoothed over your skin, leaving it cleaner, softer, tighter and more youthful looking.
The benefits of head-to-toe body treatments are perfect for those looking to supplement their weight-loss programme and complement their health regimen. It is recommended that a series of treatments are done with continued use of the right products at home for the best results.
I also recommend investing in a body brush. This is a quick and an easy way to stimulate circulation and wake up your skin. Every time you body brush it is said that you lose a pound of toxins. It feels amazing in addition to helping smooth out dreaded cellulite.
