To Fizz Or Not To Fizz? Is The Question!

Bath products for our skin, feet, and hands are serious business these days.  We are hit by advertisements for bombs or fizzy from all sides.   Buy this and you will get a pretty bobble, pretty colors or just pure therapeutic help for your skin, feet, and hands.  In this blog, we will talk about what a bomb or fizzy will do for you and what you should look for when buying the product for yourself.

These products have allowed the average consumer to bring hydrotherapy into their own home without the high prices of spa treatments.  I will caution that these products should be used as maintenance between regular appointments with your massage therapist.

The bath fizzy or bomb is used in a tub.  This product has many uses from aerating the water, moisturizing the skin, lifting your spirits, therapeutic needs to just being pretty.  The cost of a bomb or fizzy range from $1 – $30 a treatment.  I suggest reading the ingredients in the product and what it has to offer you.  You can also read the reviews on the products before purchasing the product.  Balm & Fizz offers bath fizzy that contain no preservatives or coloring and are of therapeutic value to your body.  They will aerate the water, lift your spirits and address different therapeutic needs depending on the fizz.

The shower fizzy is used in the shower for aromatherapy.   There is no benefit to the skin, feet or hands.  They can, however, depending on the essential oil blend lift your spirits, help with headaches, sinus or breathing issues.  They will not cure these issues but can make your day go a lot better.  Balm & Fizz offers a line of these also to make your shower time more than just a get clean experience.  The cost range from $1 – $15 for a shower fizz.

For a mini bomb or fizz experience when you just don’t own a bathtub, no time to soak in the tub or no desire to soak your whole body get your hands on a fizzy for hands or feet.  These will range in price of $1 – $15 a fizzy,  They offer the ability to aerate the water, moisturize the skin, therapeutic needs, and aromatherapy in a basin of water while watching TV or relaxing over a beverage.  They are a great way to end your day and take the soreness out of your hands or feet before bedtime.

Don’t delay get your own slice of heaven to use in the comfort of your home or get them to give as a gift to an overworked mom, or for a professional that just got a promotion.  These products are made for men and women alike.  The answer is fizz away.

Summer Sun Kisses + Body Scrub = Happy Skin

Summer is upon us and we all love to be outdoors enjoying summer water and sun sports.  Our skin is our bodies first defense against bacteria and protection of our internal body parts.  We often ignore our skin and treat with a little lotion if it cracks or is itchy.  However, there are very few of us that take the time to do regular skin maintenance and even fewer of us that take the time to have a full body treatment done on our skin.  In this blog we will talk a little about when we should avoid a body scrub and when we should get one, benefits of a body scrub and types of body scrubs Balm & Fizz offers and what they can do for you & your skin.

When should I not book a skin treatment? If you have a sunburn that is red, blistered or peeling, you will need to wait until your skin heals.  Do you have any scrapes, cuts or incisions?  You will need to wait until these areas are totally healed to get a body scrub.  Other reasons to wait to get a scrub are an acute infection, unmedicated hypertension, unmedicated cardiac disorder, intoxication, communicable diseases, lymphedema, pregnancy, diabetes with loss of feeling, cancer without doctor permission, and elderly or young with thin skin.  A body scrub is good for both sexes and all other people not covered above to have the skin exfoliated by removing dead skin cells, increase blood circulation and moisturize the skin.

I do recommend that you purchase either a salt or sugar scrub to use in your shower between your spa body scrub at least 2-4 times a week.  This will enable you to love your soft skin due to smoother skin, fewer skin breakouts, decreased dark or aging spots, decreases the appearance of large pores, allows your lotion/moisturizer to be absorbed into the skin, opens pores to reduce ingrown hairs, decreases razor bumps and reduces stress.  To list just a few of the benefits of regular use of body scrubs. Why would you not want to enjoy these benefits?  A spa treatment has the added benefit of making you feel calm & relaxed, feeling of well-being, stimulating blood flow, satisfies the need for human touch, and the mind-body connection.

So many Body Scrubs out there how do I choose which one is best for me?  I think you should discuss with your therapist when booking the treatment what type of skin you have and any type of issues you feel you have on with your skin.   This will enable the therapist to guide you to the best body scrub for you. We offer 3 types of scrubs at Balm & Fizz.  They include coffee, chocolate, and coconut lime scrubs.   The coffee scrub has several benefits but the main ones are exfoliating, anti-inflammatory, limited time of reduced cellulite and smooth the skin.    The chocolate scrub has many great benefits even when not eaten that include exfoliating, good for people with sensitive skin and helps with cell renewal, firming skin, antioxidant and moisturizing the skin.  Our last scrub Coconut Lime scrub will take you to the beach without the sun kissing your skin.  The benefits include exfoliating, reduces skin infections, moisturizing, reduces acne and is natural.

So no matter if you are a Diva or Mr. Macho a body scrub is for you. Come in and make your skin ready for sun kisses.

I Am All Wrapped And I Loved It!

There are many reasons a client gets a body wrap no matter their gender or age. There are a lot of big expectations out there for what a body wrap can do for you.  There is some truth to each of them but they are not the miracle worker they are claimed to be. This does not mean there are no benefits in receiving a wrap.  We will touch on how a body wrap works, benefits of a wrap and who should or shouldn’t receive a wrap in this blog.
