Autumn Foot Prep
It’s been a glorious summer, however, it will soon be time to retire the sandals for another year and look out those socks and boots (or socks and sandals for September if you can rock that vibe!)
But… that doesn’t mean your feet are about to get neglected for the next five months or however long autumn and winter last. You need to continue to take care of them, or at least give them one last pamper before you hide them away for a while.
I was sent this foot mask from a brand called Skimono. The dressing ritual of the Japanese ‘kimono’ meaning ‘thing to wear’ requires time and care, just like your skincare. And that means feet too!
This mask from South Korea is a deeply replenishing foot masked packed with Shea butter, olive oil, tea tree and chamomile. It moisturises deeply, smooths cracked heels, softens hard skin, refreshes and revices tired feet, and has an anti-bacterial action.
But nothing beats a full-on pampering pedicure. So, indulge yourself and your feet, and book one of the best 5pm deals available on the 5pm Spa & Beauty site.
A Spa Pedicure with Shellac in Anniesland’s Kerenza Nails and Beauty salon is the perfect autumn treat for your toes at just £25. Maybe this sunny yellow and polka dot design on your toes will see you through winter!
The Perfect 10 Manicure and Pedicure with Polish (£25), or Gel Polish (£30) at Soul Space on Glasgow’s Hyndland Road sounds amazing. Get beautifully groomed nails on hands and feet with the pedicure, followed by a relaxing scalp massage with complimentary glass of fizz. Treatment time is a blissful two hours. What’s not to love about this?
At I Love Nails in Finnieston, there are two Luxury Pedicure options – one with regular polish for £22, and one with Shellac for £30. Both include soak, file and shaped nails, cuticle work, rasp for hard skin, scrub, mask, foot massage, and application of nail polish.
At Mademoiselles in Glasgow’s Bearsden, you can book in for a Foot Spa Pedicure for £30, Tuesday to Friday. You’ll get your feet beautifully pampered with a soak, a scrub, hard skin reduced, a foot mask, a foot massage, a cuticle tidy and a file and polish. We love this lilac shade – it’d look great on toes, agreed?
Pure Spa in Aberdeen has a Gel Polish Manicure available all week for £32. The treatment includes shaping, buffing, and cuticle tidy. Then your nails are polished using either Leighton Denny’s LonGELity range or Shellac.
