The process of cleansing and exfoliation is done after a thorough scrubbing off the thick soap using a kese. After the scrubbing, the bather’s body will be smothered with purifying ghassoul clay masks. There are several Moroccan hammams in Dubai that will also offer a full body massage and a gommage for extra money.
