HEAD TO TOE

FEET FIRST

The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - DIARY - Laura martino THE TREAT­MENT WHERE

words I suf­fer from a con­di­tion called “dancer’s feet”, where I ob­tain a new blis­ter, cut or graze dur­ing ev­ery re­hearsal. Com­bine this with bad footwear choices and I’ve got unattrac­tive feet.

So, I de­cided to book a 45-minute pedi­cure at En­dota Spa to get them ready for open-toe shoes.

I was treated to a warm bub­bly foot soak be­fore be­ing propped into pure com­fort. Ther­a­pist Laura re­moved my old nail pol­ish and be­gan scrap­ing and fil­ing the dead skin away. She then fo­cused on my toe­nails, push­ing back cu­ti­cles and fil­ing, fol­lowed by a foot mas­sage with sweet-smelling oils. The foot mas­sage was AMAZ­ING and my favourite part of the treat­ment. So much so, I had to stop my­self from drift­ing off to sleep. Laura painted two solid coats of light pink be­fore spritz­ing some mys­tery spray (I had an eye mask on and was ly­ing down) that gave the pol­ish a nice shine.

With a tea in­cluded, I truly felt pam­pered. Dur­ing my treat­ment, Laura asked if there was any­thing I would like to change about my skin. I said I’d like for it to be clearer so I would feel more con­fi­dent with­out make-up. She then shared with me some of En­dota’s new­est prod­ucts, which I pur­chased so I could sam­ple it for my­self.
