Exfoliation and Body Wraps – Why they’ll be a skin saviour this autumn

Give your skin a re-vamp during the season change with an exfoliation and a body wrap to keep your body smooth and hydrated for the cold season ahead.
November 03 2016, words by Jacquie Esparza

Season changes always bring changes in the skin due to a whole host of different factors. Central heating and air conditioning along with cold weather, extreme temperature change and cold can bring on dryness and dehydration. Fully body exfoliating treatments and body wraps are the ideal way to replenish yourself and guard from the effects that a season change such as autumn can have on your skin. Read on to understand exactly what these treatments are and how having them together makes your skin more comfortable and ready to face the cold months ahead.

Exfoliation

Pollution from the city can also block pores and embed dirt into the surface of the epidermis of the skin. Periodical bodily exfoliation is a good way to deep cleanse the skin and keep the new layers of skin healthily forming. Not only does it clear pores and get rid of dead cells via friction, it feels lovely and keeps your skin feeling supple, smooth and totally refreshed. Full body exfoliations often consist of rougher ingredients than facial exfoliators and should not be used interchangeably. In order to get the best effects of exfoliation on the body, a trip to the salon is must and also is a great way to relax and be massaged while doing a good thing for your skin.

Using crushed fruit seeds with oil is a great way to use natural ingredients to make your skin bright and soft and when massaged into the skin in circular motions, will be a really good scrub and feels beautifully therapeutic too. If you find that you have problems with acne, which is a frequent problem occurring on the back, it’s an effective treatment along with steaming and deep cleansing. Visual as well as sensual results will follow and you’ll notice your skin is brighter and healthy looking and is also baby-soft.

Body Wraps

Now that you’re newly scrubbed, it’s essential to restore moisture and quench the skin’s thirst, which will also prolong the effects of your renewed skin. Body wraps are an ever popular way of giving extremely deep hydration which lasts for a long time after. Focusing on the dryer areas and those that need more hydration, your therapist will massage aromatherapy oils into your skin. As though you are being hugged by a warm silk blanket, you can use body wraps as a slimming treatment as well as a hydrating, soothing and mood-balancing treatment.

Just like a face mask used on the skin, the body wrap works by draining toxins and deep cleansing impurities in a heated and concentrated treatment. Following the exfoliation, a detox balm is applied all over to rid your skin of toxins. This acts also as a slimming aid because fewer toxins in the skin helps circulation which in turn breaks down fatty deposits which cause cellulite. Seaweed is a key ingredient because the unique nutrients encourage the body to flush out toxins. It will be noticeable after a course of treatments, as with all.

Alternative to slimming, body wraps are the best way to brighten, tighten and moisturise. Self-heating masks are really comforting and actively reduce tension in the muscles and is a fabulous way to de-stress. Followed by a shower and a final moisturiser, you’ll be all set and ready to combat harsh weather conditions.

Some of our favourite at-home skincare products to prolong the effects of the treatments are the Decleor 1000 grain Body Exfoliator which will help you self-exfoliate in the shower between salon treatments. Always remember to moisturise with Decleor Aroma Nutrition Nourishing Rich Body Cream and finish with a dry oil for soothing comfort Decleor Aroma Nutrition Satin Softening Dry Oil

Before getting your body wrap, remember that it is not advised to have this treatment if you are pregnant, if you have a contagious skin condition, if you are allergic to any of the ingredients or if you have thyroid problems. Make sure to inform your therapist of any conditions before enjoying your body wrap and exfoliation.
