hours to escape from the real world? Would you like to be pampered, instead of you doing the pampering for someone else? If so, you may want to schedule an appointment at one of your local day spas. As nice as it is to hear that you should schedule an appointment at one of your local day spas, you may be curious as to what they can do for you. Day spas are designed to provide customers with a good sense of health and relaxation. One of the many ways that this is done is through a large selection of body treatments. One of the most popular body treatments offered at a day spa is that of a massage. When it comes to massages, you should know that it could be more than just having your body rubbed down for an hour or so. Many day spas provide you with options, as well as many accessories. For example, some spas have what is commonly known as breathe easy massages. These often involve the use of scented lavender oil towels. Hot stones can also be applied to your face, back, stomach or all three areas. In addition to full body massages, there are also those available that target specific areas. The scalp is one of those areas, as well as the hands, feet, back and shoulders. Salt scrubs are another common procedure offered by day spas. Salt scrubs involve the use of sea salts. They will exfoliate and cleanse the skin. This often removes the dead, top layer of skin from the body. The result should be clean, young and fresh looking skin. Due to the use of exfoliating scrubs, this procedure often focuses more on health than relaxation. Mud wraps are another body treatment that many day spas offer. With mud wraps, you often have the option of targeting your whole body or just the face. A mud wrap, like the Provencal European Mud Mask, is applied to the body. This will then work to purify, polish, hydrate and smooth the skin. Before the procedure begins, the skin is often exfoliated. Afterwards, the skin may be moisturized with a carefully chosen cream, like body butter.
