How much foot cream do I need?

I love feet and I love pedicures, I also love my business and the clients we have helped over more than a decade.


I often get the same question: “Shantelle, my feet are terribly dry, and it doesn’t matter what I do, they stay dry, could it be genetic?”

My answer is always the same. Get rid of the dry skin on the outer layer of your feet and then Hydrate, Hydrate and Hydrate.

We stand on our feet most of the day, we walk on them, some of us run on them. There is continuous pressure on the heels and feet. Our faces on the other hand has very little pressure on them. Our faces are also very protected with sunglasses, hats and more, but often our feet are exposed to hard dry areas when we walk bare feet.

If you apply moisturiser to your face and neck twice a day, how much more do you think your feet will need it to stay hydrated.

If we can just commit to twice a day it will be sufficient, but research shows that most women only use heel balm once in two weeks and men, once every 3 months. These are shocking figures, but the good news is that we can turn the condition of our heels around, by simply giving your feet the attention you are giving your hands and face.

Make that commitment today and start applying a good Heel Balm twice daily. We recommend our Foot Perfector, and if you need to first get rid of all the dry skin you can purchase the Combo option of the Callus Removal Kit and the Foot Perfector.

This is a winning solution that will get rid of dry skin on the heels, soften the feet and keep you slip free in your shoes while giving you a deep hydration.

Escape from Stretch Marks


Hello, my name is Shantelle and I am the founder of Elim Spa Products.  A company who seeks real solutions to your beauty frustrations.

We all know deep down that it is impossible to completely get rid of a stretch mark. I have seen them gone lighter, I have even seen them become very narrow and lean, but I have yet to come across someone who showed me a stretch mark that completely disappeared.

We live in a realistic age where we need data, concrete information and most of all we need a guarantee that where we spend our money, we will get what was promised to us.

The truth is, nobody should be promising you that you can get rid of those mummy lines completely. (unless of course you opt for laser or surgery)

But what we can promise you, is that we can definitely escape them.

Your body produces a natural oil or Sebum to enhance the elasticity of the skin. During puberty or pregnancy you produce more of this oil and this is also partly to blame for the acne breakouts during these periods.

The mistake we make in our second trimester is that we wash the skin with harsh soaps that have strong fragrances and we remove all the natural oils from the skin.

The belly will now go into stretch mode and because it has no oil for elasticity the stretch mark will form. And we all know, once its there, it is more or less there to stay.

At Elim we have a simple system where we add to the body’s elasticity capacity instead of removing it.

You shower with your Argan Body Gloss, you exfoliate with your Exfoliating Body Polish once a week and you massage your belly and buttocks with the Restorative Cream every night.

These simple steps will give your skin all the elasticity it needs to stretch and shrink back after baby arrives.

Wondering about the rest of your body? If you are use to and accustomed to using soap, we urge you to use it only where you feel you need it and feel free to use an intimate cleanser.

Happy stretching and stay stretch mark free.

Beauty is not affected by Recession … or is it?

Fashion ShowEven though many of us
are still feeling the aftermath of the recession, most of us in the Beauty Sector are feeling an increase in business.

Why is this and what is affecting this increase?

The answer really is simple. The worse people feel, the more they lean towards improving their general appearance.

This seems to be a phenomenon in only two sectors, the alcohol and vanity industries. But there seems to be an interesting side to this upward slant.

It is not the more expensive treatments that are getting all the attention. In the Alcohol sector we see the sales of less expensive options like wine increasing in sales and the more expensive hard liquor decreasing.

It is the same in the beauty sector, the nails are increasing and the more expensive massage treatments are decreasing.


mediheelbackgroundThis is important information when planning your promotions for the year.

We also see a trend where ‘at home – spa – treatments’ are becoming more popular. See http://www.elimspaproducts.com/shop/medi-heel/one-miracle-box/ of a great example of how pedicures are now being done at home.

The importance is that we realise this trend and work with it instead of against it. When planning your retail shelf, Make sure you stock items for home use in your salon.
