#WellnessWednesday Tip: The Perfect Pedicure

As chilly weather descends upon Chicago, we extend a Wellness Wednesday tip from NoMI Spa. Today, we discuss the perfect pedicure for the upcoming wintry months!

parkhyatt-222

At NoMI Spa, we recognize that nail color is an essential element of a beautiful pedicure. Pedicure polish can certainly go through phases, from dark cherry, to bright coral, to candy-colored purple and glitter, just to name just a few. Many individuals will go from pedicure to pedicure, without stopping to let their toes go natural between polishes. However, the most nourished feet are smooth, soft, well-moisturized- and polish free! Winter is an excellent time to rejuvenate and refresh to regain healthy and beautiful feet.

For buffing to be as head-turning as fire engine-red toes, your feet need to look their best. Here are some tips:

  • Get in the habit of scrubbing your soles and heels every time you bathe and follow with body oil or moisturizer all over your feet (be sure to massage into your cuticles to keep them soft). At night, go for a thicker moisturizer.
  • Keep your feet protected from the sun during the day so they stay wrinkle-free in the future.
  • To top it off: buff. Look for a buffing block that is labeled with numbers or instructions on each side. You should start buffing (up and down or in circular motions) with the coarsest side of the buffing block and work your way to the finest side for the final buff.
  • Use the soft ends of the buffing block to brush away debris as you go.Done correctly, buffing will rid your nails of ridges and create a natural shine that looks almost like clear polish.

Buff is beautiful this holiday season!

Fall Beauty Tip: DIY Festive Scrub

It’s Autumn in the city, and we are embracing the scents and flavors of the season. One of our NoMI Spa nail technicians, Daniela, has offered up a fall beauty tip centered around the art of DIY scrubs:

“Not only is making your own sugar scrubs cost-effective, but they’re also easily adaptable to everyone’s preference. At NoMi Spa, we love to share our DIY recipes with our clients so they can bring the luxury of a spa day into their own homes. If you delight in the autumnal scents of coffee and pumpkin, you can turn them into a sugar scrub as well.

This scrub has a variety of beneficial nutrients for your skin. The sugars help to exfoliate dead skin cells while the coconut oil  is a miracle worker for the skin, as it nourishes, is antibacterial and antifungal, and proves to be an excellent moisturizer, all while bearing the scent of cookies. While coffee serves to minimize the appearance of cellulite and tightens the skin, pumpkin and honey smooth and hydrate the skin.

This multi-tasking DIY scrub is perfect to give as a gift, or to make a big batch and save it all for yourself.

Try out the recipe below and let us know how it worked for you.

During the month of January, NoMI Spa is promoting the monthly special of body envelopment treatments. Utilizing Revive products, the treatment will encompass the awakening powers of geranium, ylang ylang, patchouli and sandalwood to re-energize, combined with the refreshing and invigorating powers of grapefruit, rosemary and juniper to even out skin tone and texture and maintain a healthy micro-circulation.

Citrus contains the properties to internally boost your immune system with Vitamin C, promote detoxifying digestive health with fiber, and specifically grapefruit is loaded with lycopene for a great antioxidant both internally and externally for your skin. By applying topically, the stimulation of collagen is promoted which gives a youthful appearance to the skin, and the pink grapefruit essential oil paired with this aids the lymphatic system in order to remove unwanted and toxic substances from the body.

After the treatment, your mind, body and spirit will feel lighter, rejuvenated and energized. Before the wrap, the skin will be exfoliated, so you will leave the treatment feeling smooth and hydrated as you experience a rejuvenating detoxification.
