The Earth is a giver of many things – life, shelter and now…beautiful skin. Mineral-rich resources from the Earth have always had a place in the world of cosmetics. The salt and mud from the Dead Sea is probably one of the most known cosmetic uses of the Earth in its simplest form dating back to ancient Egypt. Now Fordoun Spa & Hotel brings you another ancient skin treatment – the Arabic bathing ritual of Rasul.
The Rasul Treatment on offer by the Fordoun Spa & Hotel is based on an ancient cleansing rituals used by Arabic sultans. It uses a mineral-rich mud in conjunction with heat and steam to purify the skin. The mud is used to exfoliate, absorb toxins from, increase circulation in the skin to cleanse and soften it. The sand used is always fine or medium-grained for a light, gentle exfoliation.
Your Fordoun Spa & Hotel Rasul treatment will involve a hot shower and then a thin layer of mud will be applied to various areas of the body. Next, you’ll spend some time in the steam room. While the mud is dries it is massaged into your body in a circular motion. This aids in the exfoliation of dead skin and the elimination of toxins. After about 20 minutes, another shower is required in order to remove the mud.
After undergoing this Fordoun Spa & Hotel treatment, it’s important to rest for a while to give the treatment time to settle in. You will be given a warm gown to sit in in a reclining position. Upon leaving, it is advised to use a good moisturizer and drink plenty of water.
