SAN DIEGO ( TheStreet) -- Pricey, indulgent beauty treatments aimed at banishing wrinkles and turning back time are nothing new in the luxury beauty business.
But how about applying those same glycolic peels, power scrubs and raspberry masks to your feet to make them look younger also?
Many of us have yet to invest substantial sums of money on the anti-aging of our feet, but we may just be behind the curve. Spas across the country are offering an ever-expanding list of treatments for the image conscious who consider anti-aging a total body experience.
"I definitely think that it's one of those things people don't think about as much, but it's very, very important. Good-looking feet are very important," says Abril Gruber, spa director at San Diego's uber luxurious Rancho Valencia.
"It's a huge trend," she adds. "A lot of people think it's more of a perk, for women. But I also think it's part of a lifestyle and a grooming standard."
If you're still not sold, think of it this way: It's summertime, the time of year it makes the most sense to ensure you look your best from head ... to toe.
Here's a list of a few luxe pedicures around the country that are worth the price tag.
