What is Sugar Body Polish?
Sugar Body Polish or a Sugar Body Scrub is a gentler and hydrating alternative to typical salt scrubs. The elements of a Sugar Body Polish are comprised of Sugar crystals combined with aromatic and uplifting essential oils like Jojoba Oil, Almond Oil, Sunflower seed oil, Rose Extracts, and Shea butter.
The Sugar Body Polish removes the outmost layer of dead skin cells without causing redness or pain. A sugar polish is an especially good choice if your skin is sensitive and if you’ve had a bad experience with Salt scrubs because they tend to make your skin scratchy and uncomfortable.
What happens during a Sugar Body Polish? (IN A SPA)
A sugar body polish usually takes place in a wet room with a shower. As you (the client) lay on your stomach, the therapist rubs a mixture of sugar, oil, and aromatics onto your skin. Typically, the body is more exposed during a sugar polish than during a standard massage, so you have to be comfortable with the additional exposure.
Once the therapist is done, you can rinse off the sugar in a shower.
Sugar Body Polish can be a standalone treatment, but you can follow it with a massage. Body Polish is recommended first because it is stimulating, whereas massage is calming.
Sugar Body Polish vs. Salt Scrub
Sugar Body Polish is a newer and better version of the salt scrub. The salt scrub treatment is an effective option but requires aggressive scrubbing. The theory is the harder the scrub, the softer your skin, but many people may find the treatment to be mildly painful. So you choose for yourself.
