Adding a complimentary boost to that January detox, The Scotsman Hotel’s Senior Spa Therapist, Lynsey Baird, tells us all about the Body Detox and why it works …
It’s a 55-minute treatment including a Mini Back Rebalance and a Hydrating Facial. It starts with a back scrub, which is then removed with hot mitts and followed with a mud mask to relax the muscles while the legs or scalp are being massaged according to preference. When the mask is taken off we apply a moisturiser before asking the guest to turn over and then we do the facial which includes a cleanse, tone, exfoliation, and a mask suited to the client’s skin type. While the mask is on we do a neck and shoulder massage, before removing it and, again, applying a moisturiser.
It is a treatment using Thalgo products which are based on marine life. it is a mud mask using ground algae petals. it is paraben free and full of vitamins and minerals!
It is particularly good for detox and revitalising the skin, so it’s great at this time of the year!
Afterwards guests are given a smoothie, so the treatment is cleansing inside and out!
Use the facilities beforehand, the saunas and steam room in particular to open up the pores which will help to absorb the products. Afterwards simply drink lots of water to help flush out the toxins.
Busy lifestyles and anyone with problematic skin – psoriasis, excess oil, and combination skin. The mask in particular is very good for healing.
It isn’t recommended for pregnant women, and anyone being treated for cancer will need to check with their doctor first.
