The summer season is finally upon us, which calls for long days, hot weather and relaxing by the pool–but are your feet ready? If the answer is no, “what in the world?” or anything in-between, Cooper Spa Dallas is a must stop for you this summer. The seasonal Lemongrass Ginger Pedicure is designed to rejuvenate your feet, leaving them with the ideal summer glow throughout sandal season!
As this summer’s marketing intern at Cooper Aerobics, I jumped at the chance to experience and write about Cooper Spa’s seasonal pedicure. I assumed I would get a run-of-the-mill pedicure instead, I received a relaxing full-body experience that left me ready to soak up the summer sun–and treat myself to some new sandals (but don’t tell my parents).
Containing healthy properties for the skin, lemongrass is a natural toner and is known to soothe irritation and strengthen your skin tissue. These properties combined with the refreshing Qtica products used by Cooper Spa causes a lemongrass ginger scent to fill the air in the salon area–cleansing your senses and leaving them revitalized and ready to beat the summer heat.
Marcia, my nail technician, began soaking my feet in a warm lemongrass ginger triple fresh soak. She applied a gentle sugar scrub, exfoliating my legs and feet, after removing my previous polish, which has been there for an embarrassing length of time. The clean scent cleared my senses, and relaxed me from head to toe.
The callus remover and pedi file came next, which is normally torture for my sensitive and ticklish feet but ended up being a therapeutic break from the bustling week of my brother’s wedding and back-to-back graduations I had endured at the beginning of the summer. The cuticle work came next–cuticle remover and oil–followed by a lemongrass moisture mask.
I know what you must be thinking, “a mask for your feet?” Don’t worry, you’re not alone. I thought the same thing. My doubts ended when Marcia covered my entire right leg up to my knee then my left, wrapped them in warm towels and let the mask do its work. When the towels were removed and the mask was wiped away, my legs and feet never looked so hydrated and healthy!
A wave of relaxation hit me as Marcia removed the mask and replaced it with lotion accompanied by a soothing massage. The light yet intentional pressure released more tension. As the leg and foot massage ended, Marcia applied the Zoya nail polish named Joey, a light pink shade of polish I had chosen at the beginning of my treatment. I was immediately drawn to this shade because it was the perfect color to compliment my summer glow.
At the end of the treatment ended, my toenails perfect for sandal season and I felt ready to take on the summer. You too can be the envy at every summer pool party when you treat yourself to a 60-minute lemongrass ginger pedicure to achieve healthy, hydrated and glowing feet.
I can only hope my senior year at the University of Oklahoma will be as relaxing as the summer seasonal pedicure, but I have a feeling that football season will be a bit more stressful.
