We are hard on our feet in the summer. Sand, sun, and salt water contribute to dry skin and rough heels. Now that we are heading into fall, it’s time to start pampering our feet. And guess what? You don’t have to spend a lot of money to do it! Try today’s beauty how to: how to recreate a spa pedicure at home!
The first step is to soak and exfoliate your feet. Begin by filling a basin with warm water and soaking your tired toes. Grab a Stepping Stone sea salt foot scrub from Lush and exfoliate your feet with pumice and sea salt with the sparkling scent of lemon and lime oils. Rinse your feet and pat dry after exfoliating.
Next, grab a nail clipper, file, cuticle nippers, and an orange stick along with some cuticle oil. Trim and file your toenails and push back your cuticles with the orange stick. Rub cuticle oil into your cuticles and if you need to, use the nippers to trim any cuticles that look unruly.
Now, it’s time to moisturize your feet and legs. I absolutely love California Mango Mango Mend treatment balm for excessively dry skin. This blend of vitamins, natural oils and emollients has a thick gel texture that smells amazing and leaves skin soft and smooth. It helps heal calluses, cracked heels, skin irritation, and prevents blisters and chafing. You will love how great your skin smells and feels after using this balm.
Finally, pick out the shade of nail polish you want to use for your pedicure. Before you polish your nails, make sure you remove any oil and lotion from your toenails by swiping them with nail polish remover. Apply your favorite base coat, then two coats of nail lacquer, followed by a top coat. I am loving the new Essie pastel shades. My personal favorite is Essie Mint Candy Apple. Allow your polish to dry so that you don’t get any smudges. Then enjoy your beautiful, soft and pretty feet!
