Not long ago, I was a complete novice when it came to body polishes. Was it a massage, I asked myself? No, my spa mavens told me. Was I going to be laden in creams that would clog my pores? Negative, they reported, astonished that I had yet to try the mother-of-all body treatments. Turns out that a body polish – which always sounded to me more like a car repair service than a body regimen – is one of the most luxurious and refreshing spa activities one can indulge in. Just take it from the newly converted.
