Summer's here at last. And for spa girls - that means pedicures, waxing, and safe self-tanning. If you've always wanted to try, but haven't yet, here are some great reasons to give me a call!
Pedicures not only feel great, they offer therapeutic benefits as well. Sit back and soak your feet in an aromatic foot bath. Recline while dead skin is gently removed, nails are trimmed and shaped, and you enjoy a wonderful foot masque and massage. Finish it all with a fresh pretty polish - over 100 colours to choose from in OPI, China Glaze, and CN lines.
Tired of shaving? Go hair free for 3 - 4 weeks with regular waxing appointments. My favourite is underarm waxing - it's fast, easy, and smooth for weeks. Regrowth is so soft and almost unnoticable. Legs and bikini area can have similar results. Always watch your sun exposure immediately following any waxing service - as fresh layers of skin are prone to burning and sensitive for 24 hours.
Fake bake products are the best for achieving an even tanned appearance. Always exfoliate in the shower before applying self-tanning products. Smooth the product on with circular motions, and the colour develops within a few hours. Lasts for a week or more and the results are awesome. Self tanners are great for evening out tan lines when wearing different tops, or adding colour to your thighs beachside. Plus, self tanning is a safe alternative to damaging sun exposure. Brush a little bronzer over your cheeks and shoulders and you're glowing!
Make all your spa services last by drinking lots of water, using moisturizing body lotions, 30spf sunscreen (or higher). My favourite trick to keeping feet in top shape is to slather on a great lanolin based foot cream (like Gehwol's Salve for cracked skin) put on socks and your running shoes. Go for a long walk! After an hour, feet are rehydrated and ready for sandals again.
Those are my best summer spa tips. Call me anytime for spa service appointments. Hope to see you soon|!
