In order to accomplish a professional looking pedicure at home, there are several items that you will need to invest in. First you should purchase a foot scrubber, and a basin to hold water. If you do not want to use a regular basin you could invest in the automatic foot massage. You will also need the following: A toe nail clipper, a callus remover (similar to a foot scrubber), or a pumice stone, foot lotion, foot moisturizer, foot bath, small hand towel, squirt bottle filled with warm water, cuticle pusher, cuticle cream. These are all the items that you will need to give yourself a home pedicure. The first thing that you will need to do is and the foot bath to the basin of water. Next let your feet soak for about 15 min. This will help to soften the foot. After you finish soaking remove one foot, and pat dry. Start scrubbing your entire foot with the foot scrubber, this will help to remove the layer of dead skin. If you have calluses on your feet than you may want to use a callus remover or the pumice stone. After you have finished removing all of the dead skin, you will then want to rinse your foot off using your squirt bottle, and then pat dray. Repeat the same steps above for the other foot.
Next you will want to add the skin lotion, and moisturizer. If you have a foot massage you should use it before applying the lotion and moisturizer. Now you will want to use the cuticle pusher to push back the cuticle, then add the cuticle cream. This should be done very gently. The last and final step is to cut those toenails. After you have finished this you may then paint your toenails if you choose to do so. Since summer is almost here most women will begin to wear those open toe sandals. If you are one of them it is very important that you give yourself a pedicure, or go to a salon and get one. Not only does it make your feet look nice, but it also keeps your feet healthy. This process should be done at least once a month to keep your feet looking their best. If you do not wear sandals it is still very important to make sure that you get enough air to your feet on a daily basis. You never want your feet to be too moist. You also have the option of purchasing a pedicure kit, which you can find at any beauty supply store. They are very affordable, and come with step by step instructions, along with all of the supplies that you need. Even though most people only think about pedicures in the summer months. This is something that you will want to consider year round. Taking good care of your feet helps to improve your overall health.
