Is your skin looking a bit tired and dull? If so, a body treatment may be the solution. Cooper Spa Assistant Manager Erika Bazan shares tips for selecting the best body treatment for your body’s needs.
Body treatments are a great way to revitalize your skin and give you a healthy glow. The treatment dates back to Roman times. The focus of a body treatment is buffing away dryness on particularly rough parts of your body, such as elbows, knees, ankles and heels. However, along with soothing the skin, body treatments have many added benefits.
Body scrubs are made up of salt, sugar, and yes, even dried fruit. So, how do you know which scrub is best for your needs?
Salt based scrubs: Salt based scrubs are known for their healing properties and can be beneficial for those suffering from arthritis or sore muscles. The chemicals in salt are absorbed by the skin to help reduce inflammation. Those same chemicals also re-mineralize the skin and give it a healthy glow. If healing properties are what you’re looking for, try Cooper Spa’s Detoxification Body Wrap or Fit Body Scrub to stimulate your body and leave you with a more youthful appearance. The detoxification wrap is also great for those who are jet-lagged, starting a weight loss or smoking cessation program, or who are looking for an overall body cleanse.
Sugar based scrubs: Sugar is a natural antiseptic, which is why sugar based scrubs are another great choice for healing. Sugar is also a humectant, which means it draws in moisture from the environment, locking it into your skin for added hydration. The scrub contains glycolic acid and alpha-hydroxy acid, which helps exfoliate dead skin. The enticing aroma of Cooper Spa’s Harmonic Lavender treatment is 80 minutes of pure bliss, and will leave your skin looking and feeling refreshed.
Dried fruit based scrub: Using dried fruit for a body treatment may seem a bit odd, but a dried fruit based scrub can actually help refine the texture of your skin. The natural occurring enzymes and antioxidants not only buff away dead skin, but have brightening and anti-aging benefits. A client favorite, Cooper Spa’s Ultimate Hydration Ritual, is an orange peel based scrub that sloughs away dead skin, while the honey in the blend seals in the moisture. This body treatment will leave your skin noticeably smoother and hydrated.
- Looking to amp up your skin before pool season? Every Cooper Spa exfoliating Body Treatment begins with an all over body scrub focusing on elbows, knees, ankles and shoulders. The exfoliation treatment is followed by a 50-minute massage to re-moisturize and revitalize your skin. These soothing treatments not only enhance the look and feel of your skin, they also leave you feeling relaxed and renewed.
Cooper Spa’s highly trained massage therapists recommend a body scrub once a month or at the start of a new season. With spring right around the corner, we say, your time is now!

Red and green. White lights and silver bells. The holidays! They are just around the corner, can you believe it? I absolutely cannot. What makes it even harder are the 80 degree days we’re having in Dallas… bring on the snow!!
I don’t know about you, but to me the holidays bring a great amount of joy and stress. The lists have been started, but they never seem to stop. Who to shop for (even that crazy uncle), where to go (that doesn’t have lines) and what to buy (that won’t end up returned). Once everything has been delivered and exchanged, I always can give a huge sigh of relief. Then comes the immense joy having close friends and family enjoying time together, eating yummy food and having a relaxing time. That’s the best.
Luckily, we are offering some fabulous seasonal services at Cooper Spa Dallas for your loved ones. Until January 15, the trained hands of our therapists will revitalize your senses and refresh your skin.
When it comes to body scrubs, our lead therapist Erika Bazan recommends that you have one done at the change of every season. It will slough away dead skin allowing your fresh self to reveal a brighter, more energetic look all over. This season, we selected a skin-tingling Cinnamon-Vanilla scrub that will have you baking cookies the minute you are home!
For a radiant face at your holiday parties, our Winter Wonderland Facial is a must! This facial is like a walk through the berry garden. The combination of products used is directed towards the type of skin you have, but it is sure to give you that glowing skin. Eminence makes their products so amazingly rich, healthy and delicious.
And because pedicures are also a necessity, even if you are wearing boots or a pair of cute new slipper shoes, the Sugar-Soaked Apple Cider Pedicure will have your head spinning. Our team loves creating these services our wonderful, new Farm House Fresh collection. Once you’ve had the apple cider pedicure, you’ll wish we carried it year-round.

Father’s Day is just around the corner. I find myself reminding my friends and family of this date since it really isn’t as ‘Hallmark hyped’ as Mother’s Day. So here it is – June 17 – don’t let it be forgotten.
Some dads have come to expect the sweet or humorous card, along with maybe a new tie or handy-man tool, dinner out or dinner in. If you’re guilty of the above, I’m here to help you think differently.
One quarter of our patrons at Cooper Spa Dallas are men. Does that surprise you? That number made me realize that men also enjoy a relaxing trip to the spa in order to revitalize them for everything they do. I’m guilty of overlooking the spa as a perfect getaway for men – it’s not just the golf course they love.
So get dad that facial, pedicure or massage that he wouldn’t get for himself. You can do it in a snap by calling Cooper Spa Dallas at 972.392.7729 or clicking here to buy a gift card online (you can print it yourself or email it to him). If you happen to come in our spa, we have beautiful gift boxes so you don’t have to worry about wrapping it yourself.
If you are one of our loyal Cooper Fitness Center Dallas members, Cooper Spa Dallas will be providing complimentary mini-facials for dad on June 16, 9 a.m.-12 p.m. No advance reservations are available, so make sure he swings by to sign up that morning!
Below are a few of my favorite choices.
I actually bought myself one, but my husband quickly fell in love with this tool so now we swap out the interchangeable heads to share.
Cooper Spa staff are proud to launch our newest product selection focused on using lavender to calm the mind and relax the body. Personally, I am fond of lavender oil’s property to be able to reduce anxiety and stress. The Body Polish and Bath Salt are the perfect accompaniment to our hour and a half of pure bliss, the Harmonic Lavender Sugar Scrub ($150), a service meant to reveal your most beautiful skin; and I must mention the almost fifty minute hydrating full body massage to complete the service!
Lavender Dreams Body Polish ($28, 8oz) is the take-home body polish which will complete about a dozen full-body scrubs in the privacy of your own bath or shower. This product is sugar-based with a variety of health-improving oils, making it readily dissolvable and suitable for all scrub users, even those with sensitive skin. We do want to point out that it is important to hydrate following a polish of any sort; make sure to test any of our Beautiful Fit body lotions as an excellent addition to this at home care for your body.
Lavender Dreams Bath Salts ($20, 16oz) will aide in the relaxation process at home as well as gently exfoliating impurities from the skin and to soothe tense muscles. Lavender bath products are our most highly-requested product and we have happily answered those requests. Our product is made of Salts from the Dead Sea which are known to aide in relieving arthritis, stimulate blood circulation and reduce inflammation among other benefits. A soak of about 10-30 minutes will have you dreaming peacefully at night and feeling afresh the next day.
All Cooper Spa products contain no artificial color or fragrance, are free from parabens and phthalates and are not tested on animals. You can purchase items in our Boutique or by phone and we’ll wrap your gift up beautifully and ship it directly to you.
