Treat yourself and your Mum to a pedicure for Mother’s Day – and save €31!

Relax side-by-side with your Mum this Mother’s Day while enjoying our very special Fabulous Friends Pedicure package for two. It’s an act of pure bliss – sinking into a comfortable chair and letting an expert therapist rub and melt away the tension in your feet.

Rhona Duffy from Malahide recently enjoyed a Fabulous Feet Pedicure at the Buff Day Spa and here’s what she had to say about it.

“Having never had a pedicure before, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I’m delighted to say that it was sheer heaven!  I was greeted warmly by my lovely therapist Alison, who ushered me onto a comfortable chair and started off with a soak of my feet. Alison asked me if the water was too hot, which it was, so she added more cold water until it was just right. I sat back with a magazine and relaxed while my feet soaked away.

“Next up, Alison dried my feet and set to work on my cuticles, applying cream on them first and then pushing them down. This was followed by a skin rub that got rid of all my dry skin. Next was the most heavenly foot masque – I was wondering what Alison was doing when she came towards me with two plastic bags, but all became clear when she smothered my feet and calves in a luxurious cream, popped them into the bags, and then into warmed ‘bootees’ for about 10 minutes. Bliss!

“After drying my feet, Alison rubbed my tension away with a wonderful, relaxing foot and calve massage. And then it was my biggest decision of the day – what colour polish to go for! I opted for a lovely coral colour, which Alison expertly applied. Suffice to say, my feet now look and feel fantastic! If you’re looking for some pampering, this is the place to go!”

With our Fabulous Friends Package, we’ll give you two Fabulous Feet Pedicures (normally priced at €65 each) for €99, saving you €31. Call Celyse at 01-6774624 to book.

Top tips for taking care of your feet every day

• Give your feet a thorough soaping every day, getting them wet in a shower is not enough to prevent bacteria and fungi and foot odour!

• Whenever they get wet, make sure to dry them thoroughly, especially between the toes to prevent bacteria having a place to hang out.

• Exfoliate – get rid of the dry skin with a pumice stone.

• Keep your skin smooth and soft by moisturizing, avoiding the area between your toes.

• Regularly trim your toenails straight across to avoid pesky ingrown nails.

• Keep the blood flowing to your feet by putting them up when you’re sitting and avoid crossing your legs for long periods of time.

• Be more active – move more by walking, dancing, swimming or whatever you love to do!

• Alternate  your shoes every day so that the pair that you wore yesterday have a chance to breath and air before you wear them again.

• Wear comfortable shoes (most of the time anyway!) Your feet will thank you for it!
