Have you ever heard about this scrub called AKASURI? It is a Japanese and Korean tradition wherein attendants scrubbed the whole body. AKASURI tones and restores vitality to skin by first relaxing and cleansing the pores, and then any remaining bacteria, dirt, and dead skin cells are whisked away during a vigorous rub down that will leave you feeling remarkably smooth and clean.There is a traditional rough-surfaced towel used only for AKASURI, but you may use an exfoliating mitt or loofah sponge with soap or lotion to thoroughly scrub, clean, and massage your body, sloughing off impurities and exposing newer, youthful skin. Though it may leave your skin looking a bit red at first (hence the "red scrub"), the brisk massage will promote increased circulation, stimulate the lymph system, and cleanse your skin as never before. Finally, you rinse in a second bath or shower and may choose to apply your favorite lotion.As a traditional beauty treatment, AKASURI is one way to immerse yourself where bathing and cleanliness represent the spiritual experience of washing one's soul and purifying oneself. Though it may be performed by a professional in a spa, AKASURI can just as effectively be done at home, in the privacy of your own bathroom. Either way, you will be left feeling clean and calm, with skin so smooth you'll glow.While it may not always be pleasant, exfoliating is important.
