We do a lot in the name of beauty, whether it's waxing, plucking, or sitting under a hair dryer for an hour and a half.
We do a lot in the name of beauty, whether it's waxing, plucking, or sitting under a hair dryer for an hour and a half. But there is one thing that some of us are a little less comfortable doing, and that's stripping down. Modesty tends to get the best of us from time to time, but there are a handful of treatments that are worth letting the girls out for.
Unless you're willing to ruin a perfectly good bra, it's best to check your unmentionables at the door. A lot of spray tan technicians will request that you take your bra off, but your underwear can stay on. Slip into a thong that's a bit past its prime to avoid any garish tan lines.
Getting all your kinks worked out is best done when there's little between you and your massage therapist. Aside from the uncomfortable chafing that can come from a bra strap being brushed against your skin (ouch!), it can sometimes be difficult for a therapist to, well, rub you the right way. You'll be tucked safely and modestly under a sheet, and a trained professional will know how to tuck and flip your blanket so you're never fully exposed.
Sea salt flotation
This relaxing treatment allows you to float in a bath of warm water that has been completely immersed with Epsom salts, making the water so dense that you actually are weightless on top of it. An experience this relaxing could be experienced with a bathing suit, but many spas suggest bathing in the buff to get the full benefits of relaxation. Bonus tip: an hour floatation is said to be as detoxifying as a three-day juice cleanse!
