Best Foot Forward

You made an economically friendly decision during the winter to skip the pedicures and save some cash. But now that the heat is here, your feet need pampering, prepping and polishing for those peep toe pumps and cute sandals. After all, we know details count at the office. And that’s not all.

“There are two great reasons to give yourself a pedicure,” says Marsha Bialo, celebrity manicurist and owner of Extremities. “Professional women are usually on the go. That means a lot of standing, walking and sometimes running.” That’s a lot of stress on the feet. A good foot massage can increase circulation and help your posture.

Want the latest in spa pampering? Northern Virginia spa owner, John Ho, has been offering exotic pedicure treatments that use tiny carp fish to remove dead skin and  promote blood circulation.

Products like Sally Hansen Cuticle Oil, Oils of Aloha Kukui Oil, and Badger Cuticle Care can help in between spa visits.

Don’t want to leave home? “An easy pedicure can be done in the shower.” Gently lather your feet and use a scrub brush to exfoliate the toes and heels. Afterwards, try targeting calluses and dry skin with an exfoliating product like PedEgg.
