My husband and I traveled to Mexico in December for some much needed rest and relaxation. We went into Playa Del Carmen one day for some sight seeing. We came across a fish spa at the Wayan Natural Wear store. I have heard about these and have a girlfriend that tried it and and lived to tell about it. I was a bit skeptical and a whole lot grossed out about the whole thing. Having fish eat your dead skin? Hmmmm, yeah I don’t know.
We spoke with the couple whose legs are in the picture and they swore by it. They admitted that it was a little weird but it was worth it and their feet were really soft afterwards. We decided to carry on our way and give it some thought. Well, I guess we couldn’t stop thinking about it so we made our way back to try it. After all, it was only $10 per person for 15 minutes, and the fact that Head 2 Toe makes Body Scrubs to exfoliate your skin and I am open to anything that helps exfoliate.
I was totally grossed out at first and it really tickled. I normally don’t have ticklish feet but this was just so different. I got used to it after awhile and it wasn’t so bad. Apparently, the fish don’t actually eat the dead skin, they just pick it off.
