Got Milk? A Milk Pedicure at exhale Does a Body Good

January 9, 2009 • Beauty


A pedicure may not be foremost on your to-do list this season, but think about it. Are you taking care of your feet? Just take a look at your feet – go ahead. They could use some TLC, am I right?

January is when we think about taking care of ourselves and what better way than to start from the bottom up. Right now through February exhale is offering a special Milk Pedicure… so I just had to try it! When you set foot into exhale spa in Chicago, you go immediately from the hustle and bustle of Oak and State streets to a calm and tranquil oasis.

Upon arrival I was offered my choice of many hot "elemental" teas. I was drawn to one called "fire" – perhaps because it was cold outside. Exhale has a personal assessment checklist, which is fun to fill out and directs you to the right tea for you! "enjoy the pleasure of my senses" – check! "see the humorous side of life" – check! "Fire" was right for me!

Next I was greeted by nail technician, Yvette, who led me to the plush chairs and a nice fresh smelling hot milk soak in the nail room. The Archipelago Botanical Milk Collection products: Soak, Foot Scrub and Foot Balm are what makes this pedicure so special and extra moisturizing for the winter.

Yvette told me about other spa services that she personally likes at exhale, like acupuncture and massage. If you prefer yoga, or more challenging classes like core fusion this is the right place for you. Take care of all of you!

When it comes down to spa services, nothing beats a pedicure. You get to relax, your feet are smoothed out and moisturized, and you are treated to a foot and calf massage. Besides, you actually walk away with something: perfectly polished toes and a finished look to your feet.

The special Milk Pedicure is available for $53 for a limited time only during January and February at exhale spa at 945 North State Street in Chicago, IL 60610. Call 312-753-6500 for an appointment.
