I’ve never had a professional pedicure before. I know, I know, it’s crazy talk for a woman to say that. I just have a hard time spending money on myself! I love to be pampered though so I often create at home spa day’s where I set aside a few hours to take an aromatherapy bath, give myself a manicure & pedicure, and do some yoga and meditation.
A few weeks ago Travis and I were at Target where we picked up this new Amopé Pedi Perfect gadget and Amopé foot cream. (Note: it’s in the foot care aisle!)
As a runner I’ve always heard that you aren’t supposed to file away callouses as they help to protect your feet from getting blisters. Well, I took that advice to heart and my feet were in desperate need for some TLC after the Pensacola marathon! Growing up I would actually have people say I should be a foot model but those days have been looooong gone. Here’s what my feet have looked like the last few months.
This is how they looked after just ONE use with the Amopé Pedi Perfect. Honestly this is the best they’ve looked in years. I was most surprised by how fun the Amopé was to use! You just turn it on and start slowly running it up and down your feet. It was so relaxing and soothing. I prefer to use it right before I hop into the shower now (you use it on dry feet.)
Since I’ve suckered Travis into running so many races with me I figured I owed him and offered to give him a mini pedicure this weekend. His feet looked 10x better than mine did already so he didn’t need much work. Salem enjoyed helping. I’m glad I picked up the Amopé foot lotion to go with it as it really helps nourish my feet after filing all the dry skin away. Travis requested I do this at least once a month for him so I think he was a fan!
I wouldn’t necessarily say I was embarrassed by how my feet looked before, but I’m certainly happier with what they look like now! Given how much I put them through on a weekly basis I guess I kind of owed it to them.
How do you feel about your feet? Love ‘em or embarrassed by ‘em?
