Secrets of Good Pedicure

People often don’t pay much attention to their feet. Loose shoes, standing all day, stubbing the toes, ignoring the nail are reasons of feet’s bad work. We begin to think about our feet only when they hurt. Fortunately, there are some simple ways to help your feet to recover and to prevent problems in the future.

A professional pedicure is a very pleasant procedure and you can recreate this experience at home with only a small investment of time, money, and resources.

At first, remove any old nail polish and then soak your feet in a tub of hot water. Add some bath or Epsom salts for better relax. Keep your feet in the water for at least five to ten minutes. After it, remove dead skin and soften your feet using a small brush. Put each foot back into the water after you’ve finished brushing.

Take a bit of foot scrub lotion to further soften any rough spots like your heels or the sides of your toes. When you’ve massaged the lotion into your feet, take a pumice stone to finish off any lingering rough skin.

Remove your feet from the water and dry them with a soft towel. Rub your feet with some of your favorite lotion.

After you’ve finished massaging your feet, it’s time to pay attention to your nails. Trim and shape your nails with clippers and a file, and then use a cuticle stick to gently push back your supple cuticles.

After getting your cuticles in order you can even out the surface of your nail by applying a clear or opaque base coat. This will help hide any ridges or lumpy areas that might show up if you applied nail color directly to the affected area. When the base coat is dry, add a coat of your favorite nail color. It’s a good idea to apply several coats to improve the durability of your finish. Clean up any messy areas as you go, using a small cloth or cotton swab dipped in nail polish remover to dissolve stains that may have been deposited around the edges of your toe nail. An additional coat of clear sealer will prevent chips and scuff marks from harming your pedicure masterpiece.

Now your feet are ready for any deed!

Don’t forget about everyday care of your feet – supportive, well-fitted shoes, washing and drying your feet carefully to avoid fungal and bacterial problems and more attention to any problem. Looking pretty and being healthy are elements of your great feet.
