Step 4: Gently apply the watermelon and cucumber scrub with both circular and effleurage strokes, starting with the back and then moving to the legs. As the scrub/wrap is applied, the grinded watermelon seeds exfoliate the superior epidermis while delivering omega-6 and -9 essential fatty acids (EFAs) through the skin’s pores. These EFAs help strengthen and moisturize the skin’s cell membranes.
Step 5: After the posterior portion of the body has been exfoliated, with a soft voice, request the client roll onto her back and lie face up. Then apply the scrub/wrap to the anterior body.
Step 6: After the scrub/wrap is applied, wrap the client in the plastic and place a warm towel over the top of the plastic. Then continue to wrap the client in the additional layers of plastic, foil and blanket.
Step 7: While the client is wrapped, massage the face for 10 minutes using pressure points that will relax the mind. Next, place cucumber slices over the eyes and massage the scalp.
Step 8: Unwrap the client and escort her to the shower to rinse the scrub/wrap off with water.
