What it is:

This flavorful pedicure invigorates clients with a homemade yogurt-pineapple sugar scrub and mask, and real citrus fruit slices in the pedicure basin. It’s served with a pineapple citrus spritzer, a mix of pineapple and orange juices plus seltzer, presented in a frosted glass.

Steps:

  • Soak the client’s feet in a tangerine (or other citrus-scented) foot soak. Add one slice each of lemon, lime, and orange to the soak. Offer the client a pineapple citrus spritzer.
  • While the client’s feet are soaking, prepare the sugar scrub and mask. For the scrub: In a meatl bowl, mix about 1 teaspoon crushed pineapple with ¼ cup of sugar. Let the scrub warm in a crockpot for 5 minutes. For the mask: mix about 2 teaspoons crushed pineapple with ¼ cup vanilla yogurt. After applying the scrub, place the mask in the crockpot to warm through.
  • Remove the client’s feet from the tub and dry them off. Massage the scrub into the feet, and let it stay on for five minutes to let the alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA) in the pineapple work in the skin.
  • Rinse feet; dry. Apply a callus softener and wrap feet in towels, leaving toes exposed.
  • Prep toenails. Smooth calluses.
  • Using a fan brush, smooth on the mask. Wrap feet in towels
  • Rinse feet; dry. Massage feet with an AHA foot lotion like OPI Smooth.
  • Apply base coat, two coats of polish, and top coat
