Guide To Pedicure At Home
So, for your pedicure at home, you will need some stuff to give you the lavish feeling of a spa and also clean your feet and nails.
These 5 tools are easily available in your house i.e:
- Nail Polish Remover
- Epsom Salt and massage oils
- Nail cutter and filler
- A pumice stone or a scrubber
- Nail polish that you want to apply
1. Cut Your Nails
Trim and shape your nails as per your wish. Nails on your toes grow slowly and are exposed to dirt much more than the nails on your fingers. File them in the shape you desire and remove the existing nail polish from the remover using a cotton swab.
2. Soak Your Feet
The most exciting part of pedicure is soaking in the goodness of warm water. You can add some Epsom salt or oil. This will help you to alleviate the pain and lethargy from your legs. Warm water also softens your calloused feet and prepares them to scrub the edges. Keep your legs submerged in a hot water tub for 10-15 minutes.
3. Scrub Your Feet
Once your feet are out of the hot tub, take a pumice stone or a scrub and rub it on your heels. This will help you eliminate the dirt from your feet and give you soft heels. Use a body scrub for deep cleansing and rinse them with water.
4. Massage Your Feet
You can use a massage oil for this step. Feet is the most used part of your body throughout the day. Whether it’s running errands, walking on heels, or a long day at work. Massaging your feet improves blood circulation in your legs and it feels so good! You can also use a foot roller or an electric massager to massage your feet.
5. Rinse And Beautify
After massaging your feet, clean them with a scrub or body wash. Patting dry, your feet would be feeling like the cleanest part of your body. To beautify the nails, use a nail polish of your choice and apply it evenly on them. Make sure to avoid putting any nail polish outside the nails. This is the part that decides how good the pedicure is.
