Although spa pedicures are more expensive than regular pedicures, they are a more luxurious and healing way to treat your feet. At a regular nail salon, pedicures will be quick and reasonably priced, ranging from $20 to $30, depending on the salon. If you're okay with spending a little more money and a little more time, try a spa pedicure for a more relaxing and refreshing experience. There are many different levels and types of spa pedicures that range greatly in prices. The basic spa pedicure has more steps than a regular pedicure, often including aromatic salt rubs, hot towels, and a hot stone massage. If you're in an actual spa, as opposed to a regular nail salon, the environment will also be significantly more relaxing. Manicures and pedicures in spas offer comfortable chairs, relaxing lights, and pleasant aromas.
At some salons, spa pedicures offer a more healing treatment for worn-out feet. So, if you feel like your feet have taken a beating from walking around all day or wearing high heels, a spa pedicure might be the perfect cure. Healing spa pedicures will scrape the calluses off and hydrate and cleanse the bottoms of your feet, essentially giving them a facial. This will also smooth the balls and soles of your feet, leaving them softer and healthier.
Luxury spas offer a variety of specialized pedicures, such as Red Door Spas by Elizabeth Arden. Elizabeth Arden has locations all over the country, and offers an extensive list of spa pedicure treatments. Treatments such as the "Champagne and Rose" pedicure incorporate champagne and rose extracts to nourish and exfoliate the feet, while others such as the "Magnolia Pedicure" use extracts from the magnolia blossom for anti-oxidants and the ultimate replenishment. Luxury pedicures, such as these also often include vitamins, anti-oxidants, and other healing agents to leave your feet as refreshed as possible.
Bliss Spa, located all over the world, also offers a variety of specialty spa pedicures. Several of their pedicures focus on conquering and eliminating calluses. Others, such as "The Hot Foot," offer a sensory experience, using hot stones and water to soothe the feet. Some spa pedicures offered at Bliss are on the stranger side of spa pedicures, such as the "Double Choc Pedicure" with a hot chocolate milk soak to smooth the skin and, of course, a hot mug of hot chocolate for you to enjoy.
Regular pedicures do the trick if you're in need of a quick treatment that makes your feet look good in the summer. However, when you need a more luxurious, relaxing treatment, specialty spa pedicures are a great way to sit back, relax, and let your feet enjoy after a long day of hard work.
