As my Mondays are betrothed to fitness and vanities, and because I’ve been remiss with my fitness routine this month (oopsies!), let’s talk about a bit of self-care today. K? K! 😀
Whenever we travel, my feet always take such a beating because we do so much walking, especially in Singapore. Up until our last trip, I’d wear closed shoes usually with low to mid heels, which were torture on my poor feet. My toenails would look bluish by the end of the day, my feet aching 😦
Of course, I’ve smartened up and am into flat sandals and comfy slippers now which are definitely kinder on my walkers.
However, I’ve developed dry skin [on my feet], and it seemed like my last nail polish left me with brittle nails to boot. It’s not something to lose sleep over, but it’s also a source of insecurity whenever I step out in my new, open footwear. It was clear I needed to do something about it.
Because I’m too lazy for DIY soaks, pumice stones and daily cremes, I decided to go for a professional spa pedicure instead. The whole nine yards: luxurious soak, good scrubbin’, generous douse of nail vitamins, paraffin wax immersion, and bottomless tea. Why not? 😀
It was my first time to experience a professional spa pedicure and the result is so worth it! The paraffin wax renders your feet (and lower leg) really really smooth and lasts up to several days. My feet not only feel better, they definitely look better too – they’re now a source of pride ‘n joy, no longer a source of embarrassment 😉
I think I’ve discovered a new treat! Maybe I could do this once a month? 😀 😀 I definitely recommend it ❤
Have you ever tried a foot spa or special type of pedicure? Did you like the results?
