OK, I have to ask: have any of you had the new "fish pedicure", and if so, was it totally creepy or did it work wonders on your tired, calloused, horrible feet and make them look and feel like new again?
I think most of us women of a certain age (and perhaps a few men, too) can relate to how something seems to happen to our feet once we crest 40, give or take a few years, and where I once had lovely soft feet that were easy to keep pretty, now it seems to be a losing battle. Unlike a lot of people, I actually used to LOVE how my feet looked. I thought the shape and proportion was perfect (no freakishly long second toe, all the little piggies on MY pieds were "just right"). I used to love wearing sandals and going bare-foot.
Now? Ugh. Just... UGH. That's all I can say. Even dropping 40 bucks on a super-pedicure hasn't helped, although the hot rocks and massages are sublime.
Now, I'm hearing about these new "fish pedicures" where they put your feet in a basin with some toothless little fishies (not piranhas), known as "doctor" fish (I'm sure there's a more scientific name), and they love to nibble the nasty stuff off feet. It seems to be growing in popularity here in Paris, although I read an article that said the state of Texas had banned the practice, citing the POTENTIAL for health risks despite not having had a single complaint (and what are the salons supposed to do with all those expensive guppies?)
So, if you've had one, please let us know how it worked out for you. And if you've had one in Paris and liked it, please tell me where you went? My feet are DESPERATE for some help! (And frankly I could use the destressing.)
