Have a Happy Feet!

Last week, I felt so stressed that's why I decided to go to the CANS (California Advanced Nail and Skin Care) salon for a foot spa. CANS is the first of its kind in Alabang area that caters to class A and B market. It is the only nail and skin care salon in the Philippines that follows the California State Board of Cosmetology Standards which basically denotes personalized and hygienic services. I'm glad, I'm the "early bird". I was the first customer and this was my first time. As usual, I grabbed a magazine - a cook book, I started reading recipes to avoid boredom.

I got curious and interested with what they're doing with my feet. So, I asked them how they do it, what to do first, etc. They discussed to me how and this is what I've learned. I now do this at home.

First, soak the feet in a warm water for at least 10 minutes. This will reduce the roughness of the skin. Adding epsom salts will help reduce the swelling of the ankles.

Second, use a foot file. Scrub your entire foot. This will brush the dead skin away. It also helps in removing the calluses making your foot softer and smoother.

Third, use a moisturizer or lotion for the feet. I use Body Shop's Peppermint Foot Lotion. This lotion is soothing, It gives a re-energizing feeling for tired or stressed feet. My feet feels like revived. Just apply it to your feet and ankles.

Fourth, apply nail polish on your toenails. It is an option if you want to paint your toes. Me, I don't. But if ever, I prefer to use a clear/transparent nail polish.

Now, I think it wouldn’t hurt in any way if I consider some help in getting my nails done. After all, this is what I need—a luxurious pampering after a stressful day in the office.
