How far would you actually go to achieve smooth skin? With all the available products out on the market, it seems that we are still saying that they are not enough!
The Garra Rufa fish or the 'nibble fish' are small fish from Turkey, who feed off of dead skin cells. This method of 'exfoliation' has been used by the locals to treat psoriasis for some time now. The trend has spread to many parts of Asia where clients of these "fish spas", sit on the side of the pool (filled with the Garra Rufa), with their bare feet in the water, drinking fruit cocktails. According to those who have experienced this 'unique' treatment, the session which last for about 15 minutes (it is all you need) does not hurt because these fishies are toothless. Apparently 15 minutes is all you need with these fish to reveal smooth, baby-bum soft skin!
I am on the border on this one. I like the idea of not having to use scrubs and exert the energy of scrubbing my feet to rid dead skin cells, however, I am really not sure about being tickled by a school of 20 fishies. Though if you would like to see for yourself, there is a video here.
With the warm weather approaching, how do you plan to prepare for the sandal season?
