Spring has sprung and pedi season is upon us. Keep your toes in tip-top shape for as long as possible with these simple steps: Opt for platform heels over flat sandals or flip flops. Flat sandals allow dirt and cracks to appear on heels and keep your feet from getting the right support. Moisturize daily. This wards off calluses as well as keeps skin and cuticles hydrated, which in turn keeps your pedicure looking nice for a longer time. Even though you should moisturize daily, don’t use scented lotion on your toes. Synthetic fragrances have been known to make nail polish crack. If you like to use a scent, essential oils are a better choice. Mind your drying time.

Spring is coming, and with it comes the need to look smooth from head to toe in those shorts and bathing suits! Our waxing services to are here help keep you looking well-groomed. Wondering why you should opt for waxing over shaving? Here are just a few benefits: Where shaving causes irritation, skin is less susceptible to irritation with waxing. Waxing is much faster than shaving. Since hair grows back slower after waxing, you’ll be less itchy and stay smoother longer with waxing. Waxing doesn’t open you up to the possibility of nicks and cuts which can lead to scars or infections like shaving does. The results of waxing last longer than shaving, so you don’t have to do it as often.
