We more and more willingly take care of our feet – we usually expose them in the summer, however, there is no shortage of advocates of the view that they should be taken care of all year round. Micro cracks on the heels can be dangerous to our health – they are penetrated by bacteria and viruses, which can cause serious diseases.
Therefore, it is worth taking care that the skin on them is smooth and, as far as possible, without calluses. Similarly with nails – if neglected, they can contribute to skin diseases and even pain. We present home methods for pedicure.
To perform a perfect pedicure, it’s worth getting a few gadgets that will significantly speed up all the activities, and at the same time make you take care of the skin of your feet in complete safety. Here are – in our opinion – the most important of them:
How often you get a pedicure at home really depends on you and your preferences and how quickly your skin keratinizes. Some people only need a treatment once every two weeks, while others need it once a week to look and feel good.
Remember not to scrub too hard – if you feel discomfort or pain, move on to another part of your foot, especially if you have a new file and haven’t yet developed a feel for the optimum pressure to gently scrub away dead skin.
First, try to soak your feet thoroughly – in water with salt and oil, keep them for about 20-30 minutes. After drying your feet, rub off the calloused skin from your heels. Then clean the nail plate with a non-acetone remover, push back and cuticles if necessary. Go on to scrub feet – massage them with a cosmetic of your choice for about 3-5 minutes
Rinse off the scrub, apply nail conditioner, foot moisturizer, and then your favorite nail polish color. Admittedly, a pedicure can take you about an hour, but remember that the well-being and aesthetic appearance of feet in sandals are worth it.
