Saving Money as a Teacher in Korea: Do It Yourself Pedicure

Posted on Wed, Sep 12, 2012 @ 10:42 AM

Every English teacher in South Korea needs to spend some time relaxing, and a great way to do that is a day at the spa. Foot peeling is an extremely popular product in Korea. Every beauty store has their own take on the product with a different level of strength for peeling.

The general concept is soaking your feet in two separate foot bags that you fill with the foot peeling solution for an hour and a half. Simply scrub off the solution and any dead skin that comes off. The magic behind the foot peeling is that you will shed dead skin for a few days, up to 10 days, depending on the strength of the product. It is the perfect solution to anyone with callus problems and just cannot find the right fix. I highly suggest it and I am in love with it, although it can be a bit nasty to watch your foot peel over the course of a few days. Tony Moly has the strongest foot peel with max effects that lasts up to 10 days.


Be sure to plan for that and be mentally prepared. I don't have such a thick callus problem so I did not peel as much as my family and friends have after using this product. There is also the option of a foot mask that you can use to keep your foot soft and smooth. The foot mask is optional, just a regular mask that helps to lock in moisture to your feet, but I definitely suggest using the foot peel because it is an awesome product. 


Pair the foot peel with a mask and you have your own do it yourself pedicure. It is definitely a cheap way to have your home pedicure because getting a pedi in Korea can build up in price. That and it is nothing like what we are used to back in the states with a full on scrub and foot clean.

Graduating with a double major in Communication and Chinese from Rutgers University, it wasn’t long after working in the Big Apple that Cindy Ung decided to take a break from the cliché 9-5 lifestyle and move to Korea to teach English for CDI. Making the bold step to leave her comfortable, mapped out life in the States, she has fallen more in love with the Korean culture as each day passes.  With weekly mountain hikes, weekend road trips, discovering great foods and beauty products, constantly meeting new people, her life in Korea has been everything but mapped out.
