icture the scene: Calm, soothing music. The delicious fragrance of scented candles winding you down. Picturing a five-star spa? Well think again! We’d all love to spend our treasured me-time being treated like rock-and-roll royalty, ending up with soft, beautiful feet at the end of a treatment, but in reality, not everybody’s budget stretches that far! What might surprise you however, is how easily a trip to the spa can be recreated in your very own home, especially when it comes to spoiling your feet. Let’s take a look at the steps you can take to give yourself the spa experience from the comfort of your own bathroom!
The Perfect “Spoil your Feet” Atmosphere
Take some time to get the room ready, whether that's by lighting candles, burning incense, or playing some quiet, relaxing music. These elements of the spa experience may seem like the most unnecessary, but can play an important role. The low lighting, the comforting scents and relaxing music can reduce your stress levels and greatly increase your enjoyment.
Take a long soak
Relax even further by taking a long, luxuriant bubble bath. This serves a double purpose, as it not only helps make those worries melt away, but also helps to prepare your skin for different treatments that you would like. A full soak will help the skin on your feet become softer, and more ready for treatments – which is especially important for when trying to get rid of dead skin. Another perhaps unexpected result of this relaxation is that treatments like dry skin removal become a lot more comfortable, as the body is much less sensitive when stress levels are reduced. 1
This is what it’s all about. As important as the atmosphere and relaxation elements are, you don’t just go to a spa for some candles and a bath. There are a number different home treatments to try, such as face packs, body scrubs, waxes and depilatory creams, but few can be as relaxing, rewarding (or overlooked), as foot treatments.
Feet are unsung heroes of everyday life, always there to take you to where you need to be. It’s time for them to be celebrated as they should be. Build time to look after them into your routine, and give them a pampering pedicure every now and again!
Build yourself a pedicure toolkit featuring all the essentials: nail clippers, files and dead skin removers, moisturizer and of course the Amopé Pedi Perfect™ Electronic Foot File with Diamond Crystals to remove hard skin.
