Salt and sugar have been used for centuries in traditional therapies to heal and promote healthy skin and in this wonderfully relaxing treatment, the fine grains of the Epsom salts and sugar exfoliate skin with great results. They also have a detoxifying effect and help to balance excessive acid levels in the epidermis.
After the body scrub comes a soothing 60- or 90-minute massage also using virgin organic coconut oil extracted from the kernels of young coconuts. Coconut oil has softening and moisturizing properties and is easily absorbed. It contains lauric and caprylic acids, which have excellent anti-bacterial attributes and have been shown to have curative properties that help skin suffering from light sunburn to heal quickly. Taken in combination, this is a treatment guaranteed to repair and refresh tired skin and awaken the senses.
The Nourishing Coconut Retreat package is available daily at The Okura Spa from 10am to 10pm from January 1 to March 31 and costs at Bt3,800-plus for 90 minutes and Bt4,200-plus for 120 minutes
