How to Do a Pedicure at Home

Mother’s Day is a day for many people to show their appreciation towards mothers and mother figures. You may not know what to do for that special woman in your life. Well, you can do something as simple as a pedicure at home. This is a very thoughtful gesture to treat mum and, we are certain she will appreciate it. Beautiful, soft feet will always reflect good health. We all face problems such as dryness and lack of moisture on our feet. Pampering mum with a home pedicure will not only help her get rid of those problems but will also make her feel very special. Here are a few tips you can follow when doing a pedicure at home.

Soak Feet

The first step is to fill a basin or your bathtub with warm water and add your soap of choice: dish soap, hand soap or body wash. Dip feet into the water and let them soak for 2 to 5 minutes. Let the soapy water naturally soften the entire foot area. Soaking feet is a relaxing activity that helps to calm the nerves and relax the feet. Soaking feet for too long can dry them out. We do recommend the Voesh 4 Step Pedi In A Box set. It is an all-inclusive foot treatment you can use at home. It is enriched with key ingredients to give feet the nutrition they need. This set includes Sea Salt Soak, Sugar Scrub, Mud Masque, and Massage Cream. You can also use the Beauty Pro Pink Grapefruit and Pomegranate for a luxurious, intense foot soak experience. It’s anti-bacterial formula improves hygiene while imparting a pleasant fragrance. It’s fruit extract ensures maximum vitamin C is transferred to the skin as the feet soak. This reduces inflammation, relieves pain and discomfort and improves the skin's complexion.

Scrub Heels to Toes

Sometimes it seems that no matter how well you take care of your feet, they’re somehow always marred with rough patches of dry skin, especially around the heels. Lack of moisture is one of the biggest culprits, but there are many reasons for dry skin on the feet. It is important to scrub feet to get rid of all the dead skin that has been loosened by the soak. This leaves the feet smooth and clean.
Apart from lack of proper moisture, one of the most common causes of dry skin on the feet is shoes. Wearing the same pair of shoes frequently can lead to constant rubbing and a build-up of dry skin, as does wearing shoes and sandals that leave foot skin exposed to harsh, skin-drying elements such as dirt and grime. Many soaps and shower gels contain harsh chemicals that can remove moisture from foot skin. A good foot scrub should be loaded with granules to provide an intense exfoliation. It should leave skin feeling renewed as it stimulates circulation to improve the condition of the feet.

Foot Masks

Foot masks are becoming more and more popular in the beauty world. They help detox the body, draw out impurities, quicken cell turnover, and seriously exfoliate and moisturise tough foot skin. A foot mask is a thick beauty product meant to be slathered on the feet. As a foot mask dries, it is said to help detox the body, draw impurities from the skin, boost circulation and cell turnover, trap and eliminate foot odour, and exfoliate, smooth and moisturise the foot skin.
Some foot masks promote skin peeling that leaves only fresh, new skin behind. To reap all of the benefits of a foot mask, start with clean, dry and already exfoliated feet. Slather a thin layer of the foot mask all over each foot, being sure not to skip the soles, toes and top of the feet. Allow the foot mask to fully dry, which can take anywhere from 3 to 10 minutes. Rinse with warm water and then follow up with a generous slather of good quality foot lotion or foot cream.

Moisturise

Moisturise

A foot cream is a deeply moisturising cream that penetrate the skin to make the feet look younger, smoother, and more rejuvenated. Whether you suffer from dry feet, cracked heels, or calluses, a powerful foot cream can repair the damage and help prevent dry skin in the future. It can also help with aches and pains The Skintruth Pedicure Foot and Leg Lotion is a moisturiser that we recommend. It revitalises tired feet and legs with its cooling effect, providing an ultimate pampering experience. It contains blends of essential oils, plant extracts and tea tree oil which helps to soothe, cool and revitalise the feet and legs.
Foot creams will leave your feet looking and feeling softer and more youthful in no time at all. Apply them after rinsing the foot mask or to dry feet at any time. For extra moisturising benefits, consider slathering on foot cream and wearing thick cotton socks to bed to wake up to the softest, smoothest feet imaginable. Many people also find it very effective to wear foot cream under socks before working out as this will allow your feet to absorb the cream more quickly.
