August is National Wellness Month, and what better way to celebrate than by taking care of your feet? Our feet are often the most neglected part of our bodies, yet they are the foundation of our bodies, supporting us day in and day out. Give your feet some love this month with a relaxing foot care treatments provided by Modern Podiatrist.

Start by melting all of your stress away with a long foot soak using Relax. Relax is a lemongrass infused Epsom salt that will soften your skin and nails, remove impurities, and detoxify your skin. During your soak, be sure to use Buff to give yourself a true spa experience and exfoliate your feet. For the ultimate relaxation experience, try getting a spa massager to elevate the experience.

After your soak, gently dry off your feet with a warm towel (the small details make all the difference) and trim your toenails using Mod Pod’s Complete Pedicure Kit.

If nail polish isn’t for you, then we recommend applying Mod Pod Repair to your nails. Repair is an antifungal and thinning oil for nails.

Any one can contract nail fungus, so it is always good to be proactive and prevent an infection from occurring if we can.

The mood-balancing mixture of Shea butter and grapefruit essential oil in Nourish lotion is the perfect combination to leaving your skin glowing and refreshed.
