Pedicures are as ancient as the Egyptian times and are depicted in a carving from a pharaoh’s tomb.
Did you know?
And don’t pedicures make you feel exactly so – a bit more relaxed and a lot more stunning?
I mean women always have it right when it comes to therapeutic beautification.
... to treat your feet with some love and care while in the comfort of your house and put that nail salon money into some pretty little flip flops to show off your dainty feet.
Here Are 6 EASy STeps
NAILS BEFORE MALES
STEP 1 Remove Your Nail Polish
There are two types of nail polish removers: acetone and non – acetone. While the former is excellent in removing stubborn nail paints, the latter is more gentle on your nails, as it contains added moisturizing agents.
BECAUSE PEDICURES ARE CHEAPER THAN THERAPY!
STEP 2 Soak Your Feet
Dip your feet in a tub with warm water for 10 – 15 minutes. Adding bath salts, lemon extract, rose petals, or essential oils will not only boost relaxation but also beautify your feet.
THE ONLY 'FILES' I MAINTAIN ARE NAIL FILERS.
STEP 3 cut file & cuticle care
Pat your feet dry with a towel. Clip your nails and file them in the desired shape. Apply cuticle cream on the base of your toe nail and push back the cuticles using a cuticle stick.
STEP 4 SCRUB & EXFOLIATE
Apply scrub to the top of your feet to remove those dead cells giving special attention to your ankles if they are darkened, and gradually proceed to your calves.
The lower part of your foot should be scrubbed with a callus stone. Dip your feet in the tub to remove all residue and pat clean with a towel.
STEP 5 massage your feet
Generously apply a good absorbent moisturizer, massaging in upward motions throughout your feet and calves. If your feet and skin are exceptionally dry, replace the cream with vitamin E or coconut oil.
This step helps hydrate your skin and boost blood circulation.
STEP 6 paint your toe nails
Pick your choice of color, paint your nails and leave them to dry for 10 – 15 minutes. You can use toe separators to make nail paint application easier.
If you do not wish to apply nail paint you can just use a nail buffer to polish your nails to leave them looking shiny.
