Charcoal Detox Pedicure
Charcoal is becoming more and more prevalent in the beauty industry. It was originally used (and still is) for the emergency treatment of poisonings because activate charcoal is extremely porous, and it attracts and then traps chemicals where it is then removed from the body safely as metabolic waste.
With this same concept in mind, activate charcoal is used in numerous beauty regimes as a deep cleanser and detoxifier. Our spa implements the use of activate charcoal during our Charcoal Detoxifying Pedicure to cleanse mind, body, and soles.
Your Charcoal Detoxifying Pedicure begins with taking a seat in one of our luxurious chairs and placing your feet into a warm tub with activated charcoal to soak. Your nail technician will remove any old polish and care for your nails and cuticles.
Once your nails are taken care of, attention is moved to the rest of your foot. The bottom and sides of your feet will be gently exfoliated providing callous removal or reduction. This is followed up with the application of an activated charcoal scrub to your feet and legs. The scrub is massaged onto your skin using a circular motion to help exfoliate dry or hardened skin.
We follow with an application of a charcoal mask on your feet and legs. Wrapped in a warm towel, the mask sets for 5-10 minutes, during which time the activate charcoal will absorb toxins and oils from your skin. The warm towel is removed, and the charcoal mask is washed away, taking the toxins and excess oils with it; leaving softer, smoother, healthier skin behind. We complete the charcoal detoxification process with a massage of hydrating cream to the legs and feet to rejuvenate the skin.
The finishing touch of polish, the color of which you can select from our vast selection, is applied. If traditional polish doesn’t suit your needs, we also offer gel polish and French tips.
