5 Simple Steps to Expertise your Pedicure!!!
Do you find your feet ugly but still lazy to make a visit to the beauty salon for a pedicure? Read through for those few simple steps for a good home pedicure.
All you need is a good foot scrub, moisturizer, nail clippers, cotton pads, nail polish remover, cuticle cream, a nail file and a loofah.
Step 1: Cut and Shape Your Nails
Remove your old nail polish with the nail polish remover and trim your nails. Make sure you cut straight across and don't cut the corners too much. Use a nail file to give them the desired shape.
Step 2: Foot Bath
Fill a tub or bucket with lukewarm water and mix it with bath salts (Epsom salts can also be used). You can also add a few drops of any essential oil of your choice. Add a few smooth pebbles to the water bath which will provide a gentle massage as you place your feet on them. Soak your feet for 10-20 minutes, sit on a comfortable chair and don't forget to relax!
Step 3: Exfoliate
Once you are done with the foot bath, dry your feet and rub some cuticle cream on the base of each toe nail. Leave it for a few minutes. This will remove all the dry and dead skin cells. Next, wipe off the cuticle cream and push back the cuticles gently with a cuticle pusher. This makes your nails look longer!
Step 4: Moisturizing
After scrubbing, wash your feet clean and massage with a moisturizer. Regular foot massages also help keep nerve endings stimulated, improve blood circulation to the foot muscles, and nourish the skin!
Step 5: Paint Them Up
Now your nails are ready to get decked! Apply nail polish. Begin with a thin layer of clear base coat. Allow this coat to dry. This will make your nail polish last longer. Follow with two coats of your favorite color of nail polish. Finish your perfect nails with a clear top coat for protection.
They say your feet are an index of who you are! Take care before you go for your next date!
