If you’re a fan of the at home mani & pedi treatment, you might want to think about rum. Not, not to drink (the holidays are over, right?), but in your do it yourself treatment. Try the new Red Hot Shandy Sparkling Soak cinnamon-scented sparkling bath soak and the appetizing Butter Rum Body Polish (think a dash of brown sugar and rum liquor, yum!)
Shannon McLinden, CEO of FarmHouse Fresh® gave us the low down on how to do your own Butter Rum Mani-Pedi. “Red Hot Shandy epitomizes the concept of ‘sugar and spice and everything nice’ with its alluring spicy aroma and deeply hydrating oil. While the irresistible Butter Rum’s dark rum and butterscotch scent becomes a reason to celebrate on its own.”
“Performing the at-home mani and pedi takes about 20 minutes depending on how long you want to soak your hands and feet, plus the time it takes to polish the nails,” says McLinden. “First, remove any existing polish using nail polish remover, then soak hands and feet.” She recommends pouring a capful of Red Hot Shandy Sparkling Soak into each of 2 soaking bowls filled with warm water – a small bowl for hands, and a larger bowl for the feet. She recommends soaking in the warm solution for 5-15 minutes to soften and envelop skin in the antioxidant-rich oils of the Red Hot Soak. Remove hands and feet. “Your skin will be noticeably silky soft,” says McLinden, “Pat dry with a towel before exfoliating.”
Next, she recommends applying a quarter-sized amount of the Butter Rum Body Polish onto feet and using a circular motion, rub vigorously, concentrating on calluses and tougher spots, exfoliating away dead skin and allowing the rice bran oil absorb into skin; Immerse feet into the warm water to rinse, and finally pat dry with a towel. After, she recommends applying the Body Polish to the hands at a sink using the same motion. “The fine grains of brown sugar and silky rice bran oil really work double-time to remove the drier, outer layers of skin, leaving you nothing but buttery-soft to the touch,” says McLinden. “Finish this celebratory mani-pedi by applying your favorite FarmHouse Fresh® body moisturizer while you’re still damp, to lock in hydration, before polishing your nails. I recommend finishing with the Backcountry Caramel Body Lotion, which is a peppery, warm caramel scent, perfect for the cold winter months.”
