Balinese Lulur

Lulur is an exfoliation and polishing process that has been practices in the palaces of Bali for centuries and still practised among Indonesian women and spa goers in Asia.

 

An abrasive product is rubbed vigorously, and massaged across and into your skin, and is then rinsed away to reveal a moisturised layer of fresh, clean and smooth skin.

 


Javanese lulur 


Turmeric is a key ingredient in this Javanese recipe. Lulur is Javanese for “coating the skin.” It is a beauty ritual that leaves the body and mind relaxed and the skin soft and supple. This total beauty treatment involves a light massage, body mask and fragrant floral bath


Milk Bath 

We know that milk is good for our bones, but did you know it has many BEAUTY benefits as well? Mixing milk with bathwater has been done for centuries as a quick and easy way to moisturize and soften your skin while you relax in the tub. It turns out the natural lactic acid found in milk is a form of alpha-hydroxy-acid (an ingredient which can be found in some of the most expensive exfoliating products). 

This type of acid gently dissolves proteins to exfoliate dead skin cells, which reveal fresh, younger looking skin underneath. The lactic acid found in milk is extremely mild, so don’t worry, it won’t strip or irritate the skin. In fact, milk is quite soothing on dry skin. Milk is also rich in vitamins and minerals — most notably Vitamin E and zinc — which help slow the process of aging and retain skin’s natural elasticity.


Herbal Bath


Did you know that taking a herbal bath of your choice is not only a good way to relax, but can be extremely healing? The volatile oils of the herbs are activated by the heat of the water. Which also opens your pores in your body to absorb the herbs. You also receive the affect of the aroma of the herbs (aromatherapy) which helps stimulate the effect of the healing. 


As you are breathing in the aroma through your nose you are passing the smell of these herbs through your nervous system to the brain. This signals the brain to a relaxing mode and boosts the mind, body and soul.
