Every woman loves looking after her nails and skin, and beauty experts are always looking for new innovative ways to give women exactly what they are looking for.
Most women these days prefer more natural beauty treatments and natural beauty products.
One beauty treatment that has become popular over the past few years, is fish pedicures!
If you are a bride-to-be who is looking for some natural and effective treatment to have silky smooth feet, fish pedicures are perfect for you.
Fish pedicures are becoming so popular in the Middle East. You can find them in many beauty centers across the region.
What is a Fish Pedicure?
A pedicure treatment where small fish eat all the dead skin on your feet to make them soft!
The fish will only eat the dead skin you have, and leave the good skin, whereas if you scrub or get a normal pedicure the scrub will remove dead and good skin all at once. The process is not painful at all as the fish are toothless and feed on algae. You will only feel a gentle tickling at first.
What Kind of Fish is Used?
There are two types of fish, Chin Chin from China and Garra Rufa from Turkey. The Chin Chins eat the dead skin, while the Garra Rufas inject an enzyme called dithranol to promote healthy skin growth. The Garra Rufa fish have been used to treat such skin ailments as eczema, dermatitis, and psoriasis.
