I bought a pair of reflexology slippers at one of the pre-Raya sales in Gadong. I have been looking for such slippers after trying a pair, owned by my sister. My family laughed when I bought the slippers and joked that I would be wearing them for Raya visits.
Nope, of course not. I wear them behind closed door when I clean my face in front of the dressing mirror. So instead of sitting down, I stand up with the slippers on (along with something else to wear) as I spend about 20 minutes applying toner, moisturiser and what-have-you on my face. It really feel good afterwards though you have got to use to wear the slippers first.
My first time using it, I could only stand for less than five minutes. Now I can boast about standing on those protruded, sturdy wooden soles for 20 minutes. The after-effect of wearing them is awesome. You can feel your blood flowing freely, in short these slippers are good for blood circulation.
The benefit is good for your overall body system. Read about reflexology here. I also didn’t realise there exist different types of slippers online such as the Nixper Reflexology Slipper (sadly item no longer available); Get Slim slippers (at USD40!); Weight Loss slippers (might try this) and Solemates slippers (thought its soul mate, otherwise will buy the His and Her pairs).
Try the slippers. If those of you who would like to search for the one that I bought locally, they are only at Br$12 and are sold at that Indonesian furniture shop in Sungai Tilong or the spa at Yayasan.
