14 WAYS TO PAMPER YOUR PARTNER'S FEET

14 WAYS TO PAMPER YOUR PARTNER'S FEET

We believe in showing your feet love 365 days out the year. But this week is extra special since today is Valentine's Day. We have some sexy and fun ways you can pamper your spouses or partner's feet that will have them looking at your in a completely different way.

Before we get started completely, we wanted to drop some useful facts about your feet:

  • There are over 7,000 nerve endings in your feet.
  • Your feet are a major erogenous zone.
  • By relaxing your feet, you will relax your entire body.

The best gift is the gift of touch, especially sensual touch from the one you love. We have some very easy and effective tips on how to pamper your partner's feet. There is no particular order. Let's get started...

  1. Tickle, tickle. Grab yourself a feather (we love a peacock feather) and gentle brush your partners toes. Watch them squirm and giggle.
  2. Wax on, wax off. Get a lotion or cream and rub your partners toes for a wonderful massage. Be sure to use your thumbs.
  3. Scrub a dub, dub. Wash your partners feet. It is an ancient practice and extremely effective to show your partner how much you care. You will need an empty foot bin and a pitcher of warm water, a cleansing soap, a foot cream and a hand towel. Be sure to slowly pour the warm water over your partners feet. Pair this with a glass of wine and stimulating conversation. It's a party.
  4. Flex & release. We mentioned a general massage earlier, but now we want to introduce reflexology. Use a nice oil for this practice. There is a chart to map out your foot, plus here are some basic tips for How to perform Reflexology.
  5. Ice, ice baby. You will need to do a bit of prep work for this one. Put a small Dixie cup filled with water in the freezer. After frozen peel back the reveal some of the ice. Rub the ice cube on your partner feet, the soles of feet, around the ankle bone.
  6. Soak it away. Create a sensual foot soak for your partner. Add some relaxing salts, rose petals, marbles. Allow them to soak their feet.
  7. Get pedi. Do a simple pedicure for your partner. It only takes a couple of steps. Allow them to soak their feet (incorporate #6), then you simple push back their cuticles with some cuticle oil, clip their toe nails, file them down and moisturize. Viola, you're done!
  8. Go bare. Remove the socks and shoes of your partner's feet and just be bare. This is super important in grounding yourself. Our feet were made for us to be barefoot. So, dance around the house. Get silly and simple be bare.
  9. Spa it up. We have mentioned doing a simple pedi for your partner. What about a fancy one? You will need foot polish, a foot masque and a relaxing foot spray.
  10. This little piggy. Play footsies games with your partner. At the end of the day, what better way to see them smile.
  11. For ladies only. Paint your partner's toes with a non-toxic nail polish. Add another level of sensuality by creating a breeze. Gently blow on your partner's feet to help dry the polish.
  12. Stomp. It's a experience they will never forget, but grab some grapes and have them stomp on them. Grapes have tartaric and malic acids that will allow for a gentle exfoliation and some fun. If you don't want to do grapes, simply rub some lemon slices on your partners feet.
  13. Treat them like a Sundae. Drizzle your favorite toppings on their toes. And we will let you figure the out the rest.
  14. Play tootsies. Who doesn't like to play tootsies with their partner. Just cuddle up and watch a big smile on their face as your play. Be sure you have prepped your toes prior to this, which you can do in a few easy steps.

We hope you have enjoyed our list of partner pampering fun. Be sure to have fun no matter which one you try. There are no rules. You can do one or pair several of them together for the ultimate pampering experience. Happy Valentine's Day!

NEVER SHARE THESE 5 ITEMS FOR HEALTHY FEET

NEVER SHARE THESE 5 ITEMS FOR HEALTHY FEET

Most of us are sharers...we learn sharing is caring in kindergarten. But, what if we told you that sharing can lead to nasty infections, spreading of yucky bacteria and overall very unhappy feet. There are a few items you may not even think can cause cross contamination of icky bacteria and infections, but we are here to tell you there is a chance.

Here is our list of items your should never share for healthy feet:

  1. TOE NAIL CLIPPERS: Yes, even if you clean with alcohol the best practice is to just have separate clippers than sharing. Our nails can be infected with all kinds of bacteria even when they appear clean and healthy.
  2. FOOT PUMICE: With all the nooks & crannies its a breeding ground for bacteria and old skin. It's best to avoid sharing this and if you nail salon tries to use one on your....RUN!
  3. NAIL FILE: Let us paint a picture for you, a friend of yours comes over to get ready to go out. She wants to put on a pair of pantyhose, but notices one of her toe nails has a jagged edge. Before to puts a ruin in her pantyhose she asks if she can borrow your nail file. What you didn't know is that she has toe fungus. Get the picture?  Also add any nail tools such as cuticle tools or buffers.
  4. SHOES: Forget about the saying..."Walk a mile in someone's shoes", because what they don't tell you is that you can end up with Athlete's foot or some other gross infection. Your feet sweat all day long and no matter how clean the person is, there are just things you can't see with the naked eye.
  5. NAIL POLISH: Ok, our opinion differs from the masses. We did our research and realize in general you can share nail polishes. However, here is our take... We are moving away from toxic nail polishes more and more. We started with 3 FREE Non-toxic nail polish and now there are brands that are 10 FREE, which is absolutely amazing! We believe it is just safe practice to not share your nail polishes and to always take your own nail polish to nail salons.

THE ULTIMATE 15 MINUTE PEDICURE

GET THE PERFECT PEDICURE AT HOME. We love a good pedicure at a nail spa, but sometimes you just don't have the time to go. From the travel time, appointment time and drying time, there is so much you can be doing with your time. Our 15 minute Ultimate Pedicure is self care at its best with a dash of spoiling yourself. What if we told you in a mere 15 minutes, you can get a thorough exfoliation, massage and polish?  Use our tips for a 15-minute Ultimate Pedicure using only ecobeauty/green beauty products!

  1. GATHER & PREPARE. Before starting, take a few moments to get all of you necessary items in one spot. Preparation will set you up for success. Grab your pedisoaks, foot bin, small hand towel, pumice (if desired), nail file, toe nail clippers, foot butter and favorite non-toxic nail polish, pedicure tools, toe separators and non-toxic nail polish remover. There are some popular and familiar brands out there still using harmful chemicals, so be sure to grab ecobeauty brands that use natural and organic ingredients.
  2. CLIP & FILE. Before soaking your toes, it is recommended to file your toe nails first. Gently clip your toes nails and file going in one direction, not like a saw (going back and forth).
  3. SOAK TIME! Fill you foot tub with warm water and drop in your favorite pedisoak. We recommend our Original Moisturizing Foot Soak. This soak will exfoliate, moisturize and soothe your tootsies. Soak for 7 minutes while you close your eyes or catch up on a few emails. After a few minutes of soaking, remove old nail polish and gently push back cuticle (no cutting).
  4. SCRUB A DUB DUB. Here's the great news. If you don't feel like you need it, skip this step all together. For a more intense exfoliation, grab our Blackened Peppermint Exfoliating Foot Polish to focus on any rough spots that still may remain. Lava salts & dead sea salt intensely exfoliate your feet, plus our Rosemary & Peppermint essential oils will revive your feet. Rinse feet with same water as foot soak.
  5. TENDER LOVE & CARE. Blot feet dry with hand towel. If more hydration is desired, add a dime size amount of our Hydrating Foot Butter in Lavish Touch. Our three butter blend is guaranteed to caress your feet in nourishing moisture. This is a perfect opportunity for a 60 second foot massage.
  6. WIPE IT DOWN. Wipe down your nails with witch hazel or a dry cloth to remove any oil or residue from moisturizing your feet. If you like your natural toes, your done! If not, keep reading...
  7. POLISH IT UP! If you prefer nail polish, simply paint your toes with a nontoxic base, polish and top coat. Take a mental vacation, watch a little tv, or call a girlfriend you haven't talked to in months, while your toes dry. For some of our favorite non-toxic polishes, check out our list!
Now, the first time you do this, it may take a few extra minutes, but once you do it a couple of times it will be a breeze. Our soaks do most of the work for you!
