Somewhere in the last ten year, exfoliation became mandatory in skin care, and the way you exfoliate has about as many variations as Lady Gaga’s wardrobe. Do you want a sugar scrub? Is a dry brush better? Is sea salt best? The list of options is so long we could do a million posts on the topic, but we’re limited to five today! We have some of the greatest spas in the country here in San Diego, so we know a thing or two about what we’re doing! Let’s examine the Top 5 body scrub treatments in SD!
1 Amped Up Sugar Scrub- Rock Spa
Step behind the velvet ropes of the rock'n'roll world of the Hard Rock Hotel in the Gaslamp, and enter the Rock Spa for a scrub so invigorating that you leave feeling the softest skin you had no idea you had under there! Using a blend of raw sugar, cinnamon, and various other natural ingredients, this treatment is eighty minutes of vigorous work on your skin, polishing you up like a shiny stone, soft as a baby! Lie back and let the professionals buff and scrub your skin up to it's highest potential while the Hard Rock music lulls you into the Rock Spa zone.
2 Wisdom of the Waves Treatment- Sea Spa Loews Coronado
There's no spa that feels more So-Cal than the Sea Spa at Loews Coronado Bay Resort, and as proud San Diegans, they know the importance of soft skin on the beach! Their Wisdom of the Waves signature treatment is amazing, and will beat all other exfoliation treatments you've had! Using the lomi-lomi style of Hawaiin massaje, they polish your skin with sugar drenched in sunflower oils and jojoba. After showering you are then massaged with whipped shea butter cream, wrapped up like a cocoon in steamed towels and your skin is simply th happiest it's ever been!
3 The Refined Treatment at The Grand Del Mar
The Grand Del Mar is everything you want a spa to be, and then some, and their exfoliation treatments are just as spectacular as you imagine. Their Refined treatment is incredible and it leaves your skin tingling and smooth all over. It begins with a dry brushing of your entire body, to begin the exfoliation process, then you are scrubbed with a nutrient-rich body scrub, rinsed in the relaxing Vichy showers, and slathered with lotion to end. Long story short-your skin has never been so happy. An hour of this and it's all you need, until next month of course.
4 Island Sands Body Polish- Hotel Del Coronado Spa
When you're at the grandest resort in Coronado, you can bet that their spa treatments are top-notch. The Island Sands Body Polish is the best way to get your skin soft and glowing in the bay, in this very California style. Using Natural Pacific sea salt, Dead Sea salt, and desert minerals to scrub, buff, polish, and exfoliate away your dead skin, then covering your skin in an invigorating citrus gel, your skin is left in it's peak form. Lie there and think of Marilyn Monroe staying in this very place, and enjoy the old skin being sloughed off, and the shinier version of yourself emerging to the beach.
5 Purification Body Scrub- Aqua Day Spa
Aqua Day Spa is a traditional Korean spa, and their Purification Body Scub and Oil Massage is exactly what you need if you're trying to get your skin back to better condition. With a philosophy that exfoliation increases circulation and is good for the body, using their practiced spa techniques to exforliate your entire body, the treatment is followed by a massage with essential oils mixed with milk and yogurt to make your skin incredibly soft. If we're talking strictly the best way to exfoliate your skin, this treatment is definitely on our list!
