After an overdose of salt, chlorine sun, we are back on track, looking tan and fit, but with dried out skin—clogged by sun filters— straw option hair and beachcomber feet. Here are some tips and addresses to cleanse your face and body, enhance your tan while reboosting fibers and cells.

Get rid of your old toe nail polish

Go get a complete foot treatment at a real pedicure podologist, that will give you a professional treatment of all your small injuries. Beauty operation for footsies: scrubbing, filing, getting rid of corns and dead skins, topped off by an enhancing nail polish application. A tempting option, the terrific plantar reflexology session. The big plus: their cabinet looks onto a lovely calm and sunny courtyard, and the possibility to book an appointment at home.
