|Tools for a Spa Pedicure|
Who says business has to be boring and staid? Business is all about having fun with people you like to spend time with. Enriching peoples lives through self knowledge and a better understanding of the miraculous machine they are inhabiting known as the human body is very satisfying to me. To prepare for my Holiday Spa Foot Care Party I sent out hand written invitations three weeks in advance by post asking everyone to RSVP 4 days before the event. This gave me plenty of time to pick up extra things I might need and adjust recipes. It also made the invitees feel special. Which they are. In North America today with rising insurance costs and a sub par medical system strained to the limit, there is an ever expanding audience yearning for real simple solutions to solid everyday health. Sharing this info can be as creative as you are with your special stamp on it. For example, I wanted a cozy fire but since we don't have a fireplace a Yule Log "burning" on the DVD complete with sound effects provided a soothing and amusing atmosphere while serving as a backdrop for my Sense display. At the end of the party everyone was given the instruments we used plus an Usana magnet to gaze fondly upon every time they pass their fridge, a Winter Product catalog to shop by and a snowflake to decorate with.

Relaxation Station for Your Feet!We have been through a lot here in New York City with Hurricane Sandy so I wanted to do a holiday party that was warm, comforting and inviting. The advantage is that it is easily worked into a weekly self care routine if not daily. Your feet carry you every day through life while suffering the indignities of wearing shoes that are too tight, hidden away from air, sunlight and the feel of the green grass. In the Big Apple our feet look like they have been run roughshod. Bunions, callouses and dry heels are the norm. Everyday you see people struggling painfully to walk up flights of steps from the subway because their feet are hurting them so badly. The concrete sidewalks are rough stuff and seems to have a way of showing how unkind it is no matter how fancy the foot wear. Using a simple tub procured at the 5 and dime, guests placed their feet inside it while I poured warm water with the antioxidant Energizing Shower Gel over them. After a soak for 15 minutes, a gentle exfoliation with the metal scraper of the all - in - one home pedicure tool took off an initial layer of dead skin.

The papaya enzyme is an exfoliator so it was allowed to sit on the feet for 10 minutes or so before being gently massaged in with the pumice stone. The rice bran polisher is full of orzaynol very rich Vitaman E to further soften the skin and hydrate it. The beadlets gently removed more dead skin with the action of the pumice stone. Another rinse and my guests were marveling at how smooth and soft their feet were feeling and how relaxed they were feeling! After toweling their feet dry Sense Night Renewal Cream (that has extra emollients of A C & E in a shea butter formula) was applied. If they felt their heels were particularly cracked Serum Intensive was applied which penetrates deeply into the layers of the skin. As a finishing touch everyone got a dab of Intensive Hand Therapy which Vanessa Soto, LMT, says is "the best hand cream" she' s ever used. It's rich and absorbs readily into the skin leaving hands feeling nourished and protected without parabens.
