Pedicure Idea: Pamper With Pitaya

by Sigourney Nuñez | July 14, 2016

It’s officially pedicure season and if you’re in the market for a new signature service, consider adding pitaya to the menu. This fun-looking super fruit, also known as dragon fruit, is the main ingredient in BCL’s newest line of spa products. The natural sugars are suspended in an exotic blend of certified organic oils to create a luxurious texture. The sugar also helps exfoliate dead skin cells, while argan, olive, jojoba, and spearmint oils fused in the formula leave skin feeling velvety soft and with a natural glow. BCL Pitaya Dragon Fruit Skin Firming Treatment is a four-step treatment that includes Dead Sea Salt Soak, Sugar Scrub, Moisture Mask, and Massage Cream. For more information, visit
