Cracked heels are very common. They can be very painful, unattractive, and upsetting – especially to those of us who love open back shoes.
Usually, cracked skin on our heels and feet is caused by excessively dry skin, resulting in thickening and ultimately fissuring of the skin. Going barefoot and wearing shoes with open backs can exacerbate the problem. Some people have a naturally dry skin that predisposes them to cracks. The thickened dry skin (callus) around the heel is more likely to crack due to mechanical factors that increase pressures in that area, such as the way you walk.
Unfortunately, as the condition worsens, it becomes more difficult to treat at home, since regular moisturisers won’t penetrate the dry, dead, thick skin on our heels. If the cracks on your feet are minor enough to be a nuisance and not a medical issue, there is a very simple and painless solution to cracked heels.
Our heel peel is a treatment that removes the thickened skin on the heels and soles of the feet, creating a more supple skin and removing or reducing the tendency and occurrence of cracks. Heel peels break down and removes the dead skin without irritation or pain.
Have the heel peel as a stand-alone treatment or combine with a pedicure for some pampering. Never used blades on the heels, as this thickens the skin further in the long run. If your heels are severely cracked, then you’ll have to see your Podiatrist, your therapist will advise you accordingly.
PARAFFIN DIP / NOURISHING MASK
A paraffin dip is a beauty treatment for the hands and feet that combines a manicure or pedicure with skin softening and moisturizing. The entire hand or foot is dipped in warm paraffin wax, in order to seal in softness and moisture. The wax is left on the skin for 10-15 mintues. When it is removed, the skin will typically feel silky soft, and the hands or feet are refreshed and revitalized.
Paraffin wax is quite oily, and is known for its ability to lock in moisture. When applied to the skin, it can help restore suppleness and vitality by opening pores and increasing circulation. A treatment also can have therapeutic properties, such as relieving sore muscles and joints, providing better range of motion in the hands, and easing the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome, eczema, arthritis, and other ailments.
People with existing skin irritations like rashes or cuts should wait until they are healed before undergoing this type of treatment. When applied to broken skin, the wax can cause infection or discomfort. We do not re-melt and reuse the wax. If a client is heat sensitive, the nourishing mask is a fantastic alternative giving the same results.
In a paraffin/mask manicure or pedicure, the health of the whole hand and foot is a priority, and ultimate relaxation is usually the goal. The incorporation of the wax or masks is typically considered a luxury.

Gel polish is known as gel nail polish, which is a soft gel. Gel polish is applied to the natural nail and cured under a UV lamp. It is gentle enough to not damage the natural nail, yet strong enough to protect the natural nail.
This is a great alternative to standard nail polish as it is as thin as nail polish yet instantly dry, with a high shine. If the correct homecare is carried out the gel polish can last between 2-3 weeks, without chipping, cracking or peeling. This type of gel is not filled, it needs to be soaked off by a professional and reapplied.
With many different stickers, stones, decals and glitters to choose from, your nail art can be incorporated to add a bit of glam to the finished product. Remember to mention your soak off and nail art when making your booking at this takes longer and time is to be allocated.
GEL / ACRYLIC
el and acrylic is harder and stronger than gel polish, therefore known as hard gel. These products can be used on the natural nail as overlays, to form a harder layer for brittle nails, which chip easily. These products can last on the nails up to 4 weeks and can be buffed off, soaked off or filled. Tips can be incorporated with these products to create length to the nails.
There is an extensive range of nail art used with gel and acrylic, including free-hand nail art. When making your booking, please not that gel/acrylic on the natural nail only is known as overlays; Gel/acrylic with tips is known as a full set. The full set takes longer than the overlays. If you require a soak off, please mention this when making your booking as extra time is required.
