So, let’s find out how to do a good quality pedicure at home
Remove the nail paint
This is the first and foremost step. If you are a nail paint lover, then, of course, you can apply the nail paint regularly. But at least keep some gap. Make sure that you leave your nails at least one week without any nail paint. Use your regular nail paint remover to remove the nail paint.
Shape your nails
This is the time to cut the excess of your nail has grown. And then clean your nails and then shape them. Be gentle here and it is always advisable to keep your nails short. This will ensure that any kind of dirt doesn’t enter your nail.
Apply the Cuticle Cream
Cuticle cream ensures that your cuticles remain soft for a longer time. Cuticle cream moisturizes your feet. Also, you can use olive oil on your cuticles. It will also do the same job.
Relax Your feet
Now, this is where the actual pedicure session begins. Soak some Epsom salt into the warm water. You can use your favorite shampoo as well. now, dip your feet and let it soak and you relax for a minimum of 20 minutes. You can also add some fresh flowers inside the tub too.
Use the foot scrub
Now, it begins the time of cleaning. Use a foot scrub and let it rest for some time. Check the manual or leave it for 5-10 minutes. Use a foot scrubber and scrub it gently but make sure that the dead skin cells are well cleaned.
Massage your feet
This is the time where you need to massage your feet very lightly. Tap various points on your feet and then massage it with light hands. You can also use any essential oil of your choice to massage your feet.
This is a major step. After the pedicure, your feet need a good moisturizing foot cream. So, make sure that you moisturize thoroughly. Use good quality and rich foot cream.
Apply the nail paint
And finally, when you are done apply the nail paint of your choice. My suggestion is to keep your nails bare. But if you have a special occasion coming up then you can go ahead and apply the nail paint of your choice.
Apply the final coat
And this is the time to apply the final coat. Apply a shinier coat at the top to get the best out of your nail paint.
And then finally sit back and relax. This is the time when you need to look at your beautiful feet and then cherish them. You must understand that stress is a major factor and thus it is very important to relax and thus the same will show up on your skin too.
