For the ultimate relaxation, enjoy a detox body wrap from Kelowna Esthetics Studio! Face up on a heated bed, you'll receive a full body gentle exfoliation. A detoxifying gel body mask is applied and allowed to soak into your body, and removed using warm towels.
Steps in a body wrap service: 1. First, the skin is gently exfoliated using a Lavender-Jojoba oil to remove dead skin cells. This ensures the mask can better penetrate the skin and is not sitting on top of dead skin cells. 2. The Gel Body Mask is painted all over your body (choice of 2 masks, see below) 3. Your body is covered in a plastic wrap. This allows the product to penetrate the skin and assist the body in stimulating the circulation, drawing out impurities and giving the right minerals to the body that it might be missing. 4. You will receive a 5-10 minute scalp massage. 5. You will be left to rest for 25 minutes in the warm room, under a blanket. 6. The body mask is removed with warm towels. 7. Any remaining product will be massaged into your skin using body lotion.
Benefits of a body wrap Body wraps are designed to nourish, hydrate and firm the skin, leaving your skin feeling smoother and softer. The body mask helps to eliminate dead skin and pull toxins from the skin - following the body wrap, you should notice an improved texture and appearance.
Benefits of Lavender and Jojoba Oil Lavender is known for its relaxing properties. It’s the first choice for most people when it comes to calming and sleeping. However, lavender does much more than that; just like it can calm down your mind, it can also calm down your skin. Because lavender is anti-inflammatory it can help soften and soothe your skin which is great for anyone dealing with irritated or red skin. Jojoba oil mimics your skin’s collagen and is one of the closest oils to your skin’s natural oils (sebum). It’s a natural pick for any and all skin types and, just like lavender, it’s also an anti-inflammatory! It is also helpful for those with oily skin because it can trick skin into thinking it has produced enough sebum and thus produces less oil of its own. Jojoba Oil is a pretty impressive oil for all skin types!

Dos and Don'ts of a body wrap
