Every day, your body is exposed to harmful toxins through pollution, household items, food, water, and more, which can affect how you feel and how your body functions. A simple way to help remove some of these toxins is through natural foot detoxing. If you’re looking to detox your feet and enjoy a relaxing, spa-like experience, our Pedi in a Box 5 Step O2 Fizz is great for the soles! Not only do foot detoxes benefit your feet, they are also known to help improve your overall health and well-being.
WHAT IS A FOOT DETOX?
A foot detox is a simple technique that is used to remove toxins and heavy metals by drawing them out through the soles of your feet. Because your feet are full of nerve endings, detoxing your feet on a weekly basis can provide many major benefits for your whole body. Foot detoxes can come in a variety of different forms, including soaks, masks, and scrubs. There are many ways to perform a foot detox at home, but our Pedi in a Box 5 Step O2 Fizz contains a salt soak to help detox and cleanse feet.
Note: people who are pregnant, have diabetes, have pacemakers or electrical implants, have open foot sores, or any other serious health conditions, ask your doctor before detoxing your feet.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A FOOT DETOX?
#1 - IMPROVES YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
Foot detoxes can help to remove toxins, heavy metals, and other impurities through your feet in order to strengthen your immune system, so it can better absorb healthy nutrients instead. With a stronger immune system, you will be less likely to get sick, and you will also be able to fight off certain illnesses more quickly.
#2 - REDUCES SWELLING
Not only does a foot detox soak help to cleanse and disinfect the feet, but it also stimulates blood circulation to reduce swelling and relieve minor aches and pains. Increased blood circulation supports the health and wellness of your entire body and can prevent various health problems made worse by poor circulation. When blood is circulating properly, more oxygen and nutrients are sent to your body’s cells—this helps minimize the risk of future swelling of the feet. Because, let’s be honest, walking on swollen feet is no fun!
#3 - RELIEVES STRESS
There’s nothing like a good, warm foot soak to help you relax and unwind after a long day or week. By eliminating harmful toxins from your body, you will feel instantly calmer. This form of stress relief can help you sleep better and will loosen tense muscles throughout your entire body—this puts your mind more at ease too! Taking steps to reduce your stress levels is an incredibly important aspect of self-care, and a foot detox pedicure is a perfect place to start to take care of your body and your mind.
#4 - BOOSTS YOUR MOOD
When your body feels good, your mood usually follows. Detoxing allows you to start fresh and feel like your best self—you’ll feel super confident after your pedicure, as your feet will feel brand new and look even better. You’ll feel excited that you just invested time in making yourself feel good and doing something kind for your body. Plus, our O2 Fizz Pedi in a Box comes in three uplifting scents to provide feelings of comfort and happiness: Raspberry Sorbet, Mint Mimosa, and Lavender Vanilla. We can’t even pick a favorite, so we’re excited for you to try all three.
HOW TO DETOX YOUR FEET
It’s easier than you think to detox your feet from the comfort of your own home. Our Pedi in a Box 5 Step O2 Fizz features five steps to detox your feet and make them feel energized and renewed. Plus, this pedi is special: the fizzing effect adds some fun and playfulness to your at-home spa experience.
STEP 1: DETOX SALT SOAK
Pour the detox salt soak mixture into your foot bath with warm water, then mix well. Now it’s time to sit back and relax! Soak your feet in the bath for 5-10 minutes to eliminate impurities, soothe your muscles, and soften your skin. This soak will also deodorize your feet, so say goodbye to bothersome, stinky feet.
STEP 2: FIZZ POWDER
Add the fizz powder to the water for an immediate fizz effect! Soak your feet for 10-15 more minutes to help relieve minor muscle aches and improve blood circulation. This fabulously fizzy step will also spark enjoyment with a unique sensation you may not normally find in a pedicure, and this one is from the comfort of your own home.
STEP 3: SUGAR SCRUB
Gently massage the sugar scrub in a circular motion onto wet skin to exfoliate, then rinse thoroughly with water and pat dry with a towel. This exfoliating step gently removes any unwanted dead or dry skin from your feet and will leave them feeling lighter with a softer texture. Our sugar scrub is made with pure sugar, one of the most non-abrasive methods of exfoliating.
STEP 4: CREAM MASK
To add some intense hydration to your feet, apply the cream mask gently onto your dried lower legs and feet. Leave it on for 3-5 minutes, then rinse thoroughly with water and pat dry. Our foot mask will condition and renew your feet, and it will feel so luxurious and relaxing after detoxing and exfoliating.
STEP 5: MASSAGE BUTTER
We’re almost done—the last step is to moisturize with the massage butter, which smells incredible. To soften and soothe skin, apply on your dry feet, spread gently, and massage until fully absorbed. This nourishing butter restores moisture to your feet and leaves them feeling smooth and supple, avoiding any dry or cracked skin.
