PEDICURE AT HOME
As much as people would prefer for a salon to handle their pedicures, you can still though get a fantastic experience at home too. But there are occasions when we do not have enough free time to go to a salon and sit there while getting our pedicure done. Some of us return home at night when all the salons are closed, or sometimes we may not just feel like going to the salon at all. And you notice that your feet are getting bad but you still don't have time to visit a salon, what should you do? Amazingly, you can perform a pedicure on yourself at home.
- STEP 1 ~ Remove your previous nail polish
You must first remove any nail polish from your toes if there is any. To make it simpler to remove the nail polish, take some nail polish remover, put it on a cotton pad, and place it on your toes for a few seconds. This will cause your nail polish to start breaking and make it easier for you to remove the nail polish.
- STEP 2 ~ Soaking your feet
You need to dip both of your feet into a container or tub that can fit both of your feet. Make sure to use warm water in the tub; avoid using hot water, but make sure it's warm enough for you to comfortably immerse your feet in. put some bath salts and, if desired, essential oil there. This step is crucial because hard, calloused feet make it difficult to remove dead skin cells or calluses, therefore we need to soften them first. You can actually realize that you are calmer than usual after finishing this step, which is quite relaxing.
- STEP 3 ~ Scrubbing & Exfoliation
Use a pumice stone and go crazy rubbing it all over your feet, paying specific attention to the area around your heels. So be careful and don't rub it too vigorously. Next, apply a scrubbing cream and scrub the area around your feet with your hands. Afterward, wash your feet, and use a soft towel to pat them dry.
- STEP 4 ~ Shape your nails
Trim your toenails, then use a nail filer to shape them however you want.
- STEP 5 ~ Moisturize them
Massage your feet with foot cream or moisturizer. By moisturizing your feet, you can keep them hydrated and increase blood circulation. You can use cuticle oil if you want.
- STEP 6 ~ Apply Nail polish
Apply a base layer to your nails before adding your favorite nail paint color.
However, we still feel that what we did might not be sufficient because we think that salons can carry out the pedicure more efficiently. Undoubtedly, they can do it well, but if you cannot visit the salon enough, you will have to make do with pedicures at home. It is better to buy the tools and take care of them because it isn't that difficult to do, rather than leaving your feet all alone and neglecting them because you believe you can't do it at home. Ladies, stop hiding your feet with socks. Instead, get a pedicure at home and wear any sandals you like.
