Three Reasons Why You Need A Booty Facial


When you think that you have pampered yourself enough with a facial, a booty facial will complete your skincare regime.

Believe it or not, the popularity of the booty facials is at an all-time high, and are the next treatment on the list you need to try. I know what you’re thinking right now, but hear us out! Many who had tried it admitted that the butt facial did not only feel like a little confidence boost, it also made their bum skin feel moisturized and glowy! So, if you are looking for an extra dose of pampering (who isn’t? ), keep on reading to find out the top three reasons why your bum needs that extra TLC every now and then!

What is Booty Facial?

A booty facial is a combination of deep cleansing and exfoliating, as well as steaming and nourishing moisturizing processes to enhance the health of the skin on your booty. At the end of the treatment, your booty’s skin will feel so smooth and have a healthy glow-perfect for Bali’s all-year-long bikini season. 


Georgia Sutherland, Glo Day Spa’s director, mentioned that both the demand and shift were caused by the heightened awareness of the cause of tropical humidity on the skin. Many girls nowadays in Bali are now resorting to booty facials to maintain the health, hygiene, and appearance of their booty skin.

Improving the health of your booty's skin

The skin around your bum area is generally thicker and contains more oil glands than your facial skin. It also gets constantly covered by our underwear and clothing. The pores can get clogged with dirt, sebum, and oil easily, too. 

Additionally, our skin naturally sheds, and the dead skin cells will be trapped in your pores. The dead skin cells will build up in your pores and hair follicles, causing folliculitis. You know, those pimple-looking bumps that are highly treatable by regular treatments. 

The exfoliation process in a booty facial treatment plays an important role in removing all the unwanted dirt on your skin. To optimize this process, Glo Day Spa mixes its own homemade scrub that is preservative-free, natural, and suitable for sensitive skin, with the aim to remove dead skin cells and clean the pores thoroughly.

Other than cleaning, both the deep cleanser and homemade scrubs are useful to maintain the softness and smoothness of your skin. Moreover, since the two are natural, they are suitable for the most sensitive skin, even those with eczema and psoriasis. 

"The back facial we offered then focused on manually cleaning and maintaining the area often neglected in a beauty regime," Georgia said. "It includes clearing up their acne and blemishes on the backside." This area is frequently overlooked because it is not as visible as our faces or chests!

Bye-bye Buttnes!

“Buttness”, or butt acne, has gained popularity in Bali, and this is mainly caused by the tropical humidity. The high humidity of the island has triggered skin problems for many in Bali, especially since sometimes we all have the tendency to sit in our wet bathing suits for hours while also being exposed constantly outdoors.

“When we are seated down for a long time, driving our motorcycles amidst high-polluted traffic,” Georgia explained, “You are not allowing air flow to the skin, which makes the perfect breeding ground for acne-causing bacteria.”

The cleansing and exfoliating steps, along with the manual extraction, ensure that they remove the bacteria and dead skin cells that may cause future acne, while at the same time improving your skin’s overall health.

Glo Day Spa incorporates steaming followed by manual extractions, where your dedicated beauticians will utilize steam to open the clogged pores on your skin, then create pressure around them to extract the dirt and sebum stuck in there.

After all these steps, your skin will easily absorb all the nutritional boosts in the form of moisturizers and serums. Glo Day Spa is a long-time fan of Biokos, an Indonesian brand famously used in spas across the nation, and they have used Biokos moisturizer and mask in many of their skin treatments.

Enhance overall appearance

That dewy, glowy booty is now pretty again! After deep cleaning all the dirt and removing the dead skin cells, your renewed and radiant new skin underneath is now ready to face another day!

Similar to a regular facial, booty facials have the same functionality, just on different parts of your body. Facials in general can improve the blood circulation in your skin, which will combat dullness and dryness while also putting that blush on your tush. 😉

At Glo Day Spa, after an intensive skin nourishment process, their 45-minute also incorporates a strong, invigorating sports massage to the gluteus maximus (the cooler name for our booty muscles), to both improve skin cell regeneration and blood circulation, and give a toned appearance to our booty holistically.

The massage, moreover, also enhances the health and appearance of your booty skin, while also tightening enlarged pores and improving skin texture. Also, believe it or not, the most well-known benefit of a massage is to give your skin a brighter glow! How amazing is that?

What to expect?

When asked, Georgia mentioned that at Glo Day Spa, you can walk in feeling safe and cared for, and you will love the treatment knowing that the beauticians are meticulous and thorough in their work.

Glo Day Spa’s booty facials also provide complete privacy and a cover-up for other areas of your body that are not involved in the booty facial process.

“We’re doing this to make sure the client doesn’t feel completely exposed and vulnerable,” Georgia explained. “So we’ll cover from the chest area to the top of the hip, then below the booty to the entire legs.”

Regular facials do wonders for your complexion, but a booty facial takes your beauty routine to the next level. Our bums are often forgotten in our beauty routine, when in fact, they may have slowly slipped into the list of things we should take care of more often.
