Find out how you can replicate the spa experience at home, and the positive benefits that a bit of TLC can have for your feet!Picture the scene: calm, soothing music. The delicious fragrance of scented candles winding you down. Picturing a fivestar spa? Well think again! We’d all love to spend our treasured metime being treated like rockandroll royalty, 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 bathroom!
The Perfect "Spoil your Feet” Atmosphere
Take some time to get the room ready, which can be through lighting candles, burning incense, and playing some quiet 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 luxurious 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.
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 (and overlooked), as foot treatments. The Velvet Smooth Range can cover these treatments, from pedicures to hard skin removal. Another benefit is that your feet will look beautiful afterwards.
Feet are unsung heroes of everyday life, always there to take you to where you need to be, so it’s time to celebrate them as they should be, building time to look after them into your routine, and giving them a pampering pedicure every now and again!
Build yourself up a pedicure toolkit featuring all the essentials: nail clippers, files and dead skin removers, and of course the Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi with Diamond Crystals *, and an assortment of three different roller heads (Regular coarse: for normal hard skin, Extra Coarse: for very tough hard skin and Soft Touch: for the perfect and smooth finish). Take a look at Scholl’s Velvet Smooth range of products, which can help look after your feet, potentially making them comfortable and beautiful.
