5 Reasons You Need A Pedicure This Month!

I can’t believe it is already half way through summer! Between trips, work, and trying to work on my tan, this season has blown by! And if you’re like me I bet you take extra good care of your hair, skin, and fingernails but often forget about those oh-so-important toes! And taking care of your feet is incredibly important – not just so you keep them looking good in those new sandals you just bought, but because they contribute to your overall heath – and who doesn’t care about that?

Your feet have over 60 joints, 200 muscles, tendons, and ligaments in them, so it’s not surprising that many things can affect your feet. Are you a runner? Do you love wearing the latest high heels or strappy sandals? These activities and more can affect the health of your feet. And because your feet are the furthest thing from most people’s mind (literally) they tend to be the thing that develop the most health problems. Poor blood circulation, inadequate installation, or poor footwear (remember those strappy sandals?) can all lead to foot health problems which can affect your overall health.

So what can you do about it? Here are the 5 ways you can make sure to take care of your feet every day:
1. Wash them
2. Smooth corns and calluses keeping the skin soft and smooth
3. Protect your feet from hot and cold
4. Trim your toenails weekly
5. Wear shoes and socks as often as you can.

Make sure to have the proper products to help you take care of those tootsies as well! At Fantasia, you can pick up Aveda’s foot relief cream. This moisturizing cream is blended with exfoliating fruit acids and plant-derived oils like jojoba and castor. It intensely hydrates, invigorates sore, tired feet, and softens and smooths rough and dry patches. And with rosemary and lavender oils mixed it, it can help keep your feet smelling sweet. They even carry the cutest loofah on a stick so you can make sure to scrub all the nooks and crannies of your precious feet.

But some days you just can’t someone else to pamper your feet for you. I’m especially interested mid-summer when I am in desperate need of a relaxing activity that won’t break the bank. Well you are in luck. At Fantasia, this month only, you can save $10 off their new Fantasia Signature Pedicure. This luxury spa-like treatment is 90 minutes of pure heaven. This pedicure delivers products into 7 layers of the skin which, acts as a water barrier so essentials nutrients don’t wash out of the body. Hot stones are even incorporated into the foot massage you get with this pedicure (yes you heard me right – foot massage with hot stones. Awesome sauce) for added muscle relaxation.

If you love the sand, sun, and water as much as I do, then I bet your feet need a little love by this time of the year. And no matter what season it is – don’t forget to treat your feet!
