Maintaining Healthy Feet

Had a long day at work; a stressful week? Why not pamper yourself for 30 minutes? For a quick pick me up, our great new Classic Pedicure includes shaping of the nail, cuticle work, removal of dead skin and calluses, massage, and polish.

Our feet are an essential part of our daily lives and it’s important to take care of them. A pedicure not only benefits the overall appearance of your toes and feet, but over time, can have long lasting health benefits. Coming in for a pedicure on a routine schedule (every 4-6 weeks) prevents ingrown nails, callus build up, cracked heels, and improves the overall appearance of the feet.

To reverse the age of your feet, at home care is essential in between appointments. Cracked heals and calluses can be avoided and cured by maintaining a regular schedule of care. Filing or using pumice on your feet in the shower at least 2 times a week gets rid of dead skin and keeps your heals nice and soft, the Gehwol foot files are fantastic. After filing the feet it is important to keep your feet moisturized. One of my favorite exfoliators is out of our new LaLicious line. The Sugar Kiss Soufflé Scrub is an all natural scrub that contains Coconut Oil, Cane Sugar, Sweet Almond Oil, Essential and Fragrance Oils, Soybean Oil, Vitamin E Oil, and Honey. It’s a refreshing scent of vanilla, citrus and rose. The best part is that is contains NO PARABENS! It’s highly moisturizing and can be used all over the body, including the hands.

Some quick at home tips:

Not only can you use Sugar Kiss Soufflé Scrub as a moisturizing exfoliant you can use it to shave! In the shower rinse the sugar crystals away and you have the perfect opportunity to get the closet shave ever; your legs will be moisturized and silky smooth. It’s the perfect scrub no need for lotion, just get out and go!

Our Gehwol foot file is big enough that it allows you to find the perfect angle on your foot regardless if you are quickly showering or settling in for a relaxing bubble bath.

Hope to see you for a pedicure soon, and be sure to ask about at-home tips to supplement your regular pedicure schedule.

The culprits that give away your age!

With all the innovations for your face your hands are the culprits that will give away your age. Just like your face, your hands need care and protection. No worries, there are a couple of simple steps you can take to help maintain the youthful appearance of those over worked phalanges.

Exfoliating at least 2-3 times a week is a great way to remove dead skin and let a new radiant layer shine through. One of my favorite exfoliators is the One Minute Manicure. It has over 7 different oils combined with dead sea salt which makes for one effective yet gentle & hydrating exfoliant.

The care starts with exfoliation then continues with moisturizing. Carrying a portable bottle of hand cream with you is essential. Since you’re always using your hands they dry out relatively quickly. Also, being good about hydrating them will aid with dry cuticles and brittle nails. If you don’t have a favorite hand cream already, I’d suggest Deborah Lippmann’s Rich Girl Anti-Aging Hand & Cuticle Cream with SPF 25. Its always nice to have a moisturizer with SPF because not only does it hydrate it also protects you from skin damaging sun rays.

And last of all, you should always wear gloves when you step outside. Even if its for just a minute, because frigid air really takes a toll on your hands.

Pretty simple, right? Exfoliate, moisturize & protect three painless routines to keep your hands as ageless as your face.
