When I went to my first Korean spa experience aka “Jimjilbang” I was literally shocked. A common open area where you are completely naked. I was terrified! Like most women I have some body insecurities and I’m definitely not where I want to be in terms of physique, so being in an area where I’m totally nude wasn’t ideal. When I first shed my clothing I was self conscious but after a while I got used to it I mean.. we were all nude! After my feeling of insecurity left I started to feel liberated, mainly because it was something that terrified me and I did it! I first went in the jacuzzi to soften the skin. I then went into the sauna and the most uncomfortable part, the cold dip! Going from hot to cold is really good for the circulation. I was then called to the back room to receive a full body scrub and massage. After the scrub and massage was finished, I was covered in warm milk on my body and face. This helps to whiten the skin. When I left I was feeling so soft and invigorated! Going to the k spa is more appealing to me now than doing to a fancy resort style spa because I love seeing immediate results!
