Tips To Do Pedicure At Home
Collect The Required Things For Pedicure
You will need a few things for doing pedicure at home. Some of these things are easily available at home; a few others can be bought from the market as they will be used during every pedicure.
These things include a gentle shampoo, foot scrub, filer, cuticle cream, loofah, massage cream and pumice stone.
Trim The Nails
First of all, remove your old nail polish and trim your nails. Take a nail cutter and cut your nails. Now shape them in the desired shape.
Do not cut the corners of your nails deeply otherwise it can lead to ingrown nails and can cause pain and discomfort.
Take A Footbath
After cleaning and trimming your nails take a tub full of water and mix some gentle shampoo in it. Make suds and soak your feet in this water for 15 minutes.
You can also add some small pebbles in this water for a gentle massage. With the help of pumice stone clean the soles of your feet. Take out your feet after 15 minutes and towel dry your feet.
Next, take some foot scrub and rub on your feet. Apply the scrub in circular motion on your entire feet. Massage the scrub gently but with firm hands.
After massaging for 5 minutes, wash off with plain water. Now apply cuticle cream on the cuticles of your nails. Push the cuticles with a cuticle remover. Do not cut the cuticles. It can lead to infections and can cause problems later.
Massage your feet with a nice moisturizing cream. The cream massage will make your feet soft and beautiful and will prevent them from developing lines and cracks.
Massage the cream also in circular motion till the cream disappears into your feet. Massage on feet and soles also increases blood circulation and relaxes the stressed nerve points of legs.
Decorate Your Feet
Finally, you can adorn your feet with a nice nail polish or toe rings. If you are wearing nail polish than wear a base coat first, let it air dry and then apply the nail polish.
This simple pedicure can be done every 15 days at home. Regular use will ensure smooth and nice looking feet.
