Warmer days are finally here! That means you need to stop suffocating your feet under heavy socks and keeping them hidden away in boots. But wait, what are those? Talons and cracked heels?
Whether you indulge in regular pedicures or have never had one before, a professional pedi is more than a fresh coat of colour. Some women are nervous about letting anyone get that close to their feet, and many don’t like people touching their feet. Whichever part of the pool you fall into, be it podophobia (irrational fear of feet) or podophilia (foot fetishism), regular pedicures are necessary for healthy feet.
We tend to tick off the everyday basic grooming requirements with ease. Shower? Check. Teeth? Brushed. Face? Plastered. Body? Moisturised. But do we pay attention to the part of our body that carries us most of the day? Our feet are often neglected and take the strain of our body weight throughout the day.
A pedicure is more than grooming. It’s foot therapy and you should essentially be booking a pedicure once a month. Not only are they a great way to get your feet in tip top shape, but a pedicure goes a long way to prevent painful ingrown toenails and other nail disorders like onychorrexis (ridging of the nail).
Get that feeling with a Sorbet pedi
Ask most women why they don’t book a professional pedicure and the answer usually is that they don’t have the time to. With Sorbet Rosebank @The Zone, you have no excuses to not get your feet ready for strapy heels and gorgeous sandals. They offer a quickie pedi, which is perfect to maintain the perfectly pedicured status of your feet. The quickie pedi means your nails are filed, cuticles trimmed and nails are then buffed and painted. The best part? It takes all of twenty minutes!
If you do have the time, the power pedi comes highly recommended. Spend an hour in foot heaven complete with soak, exfoliation and massage. Your feet feel brand new after calluses are filed off at the experts hands of the Sorbet therapist.
Removing the dead skin on your feet encourages new cell growth and prevents you from dealing with the pain of cracked heels. The power pedi is therapeutic and can help you relieve stress. The massage is reflexology based and does wonders for achy feet and ankles.
Options are endless
The best part about a Sorbet pedicure is that you have the option of either regular pedicure with or without polish. For women who can’t do a gelish or regular polish due to religious reasons, rest assured that you are in control of your preference.
The colours, oh the colours. It’s like being a kid in the candy store with the colour palette. You choose your colour while your Sorbet therapist is at work. Refreshment in hand, you honestly feel like royalty.
