Body Polishing

A body polish is a popular body treatment that exfoliates and hydrates your skin, leaving it smooth and soft. The best way to think about a body polish is that it is a treatment for the skin - basically a facial for the body. In a spa, the body polish is followed by a shower and ends with an application of body lotion. It should not be confused with a massage, which targets the muscles.

Is there a difference between a body polish and a body scrub?

Not really! They are just different names for the same basic treatment, which removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells, a process called exfoliation. The name - body polish or body scrub - comes down to the person who is writing the spa menu and what sounds best to them. They will both leave you clean and exfoliated!

A body polish can be done with any number of exfoliants, but sea salt and sugar are by far the most common. Depending on the exfoliant, the name of the treatment might change to salt scrub, salt glow, sea salt scrub, dead sea salt scrub, sugar scrub, brown sugar scrub or sugar glow. You get the idea. No matter what they are called, they are ALL exfoliating treatments that will leave you clean and silky soft.
