It’s common for our feet to get rough due to the weather conditions, constant walking, and improper skin care. During the lockdown period, you might not be able to access a professional pedicure Vaughan. You can give your feet some TLC by following simple steps for a perfect home pedicure. You probably have all the things you will need in your home. Some of the items you will need for a perfect pedicure include cotton pads, nail clippers, nail polish remover, nail file, cuticle cream, a good foot scrub, and a moisturizer.
Below are some tips on how you can fix your rough, dry, and uncomfortable feet without spending money on professional pedicures. With the at-home pedicure kit from Nail A More Nail Salon, you will be good to go. The best thing about the at-home pedicure hack is that you can do the first bit before you even take a shower. You can complete the second part from the comfort of your bed or the couch. The good news is that you don’t need to use a pumice stone.
This is the most relaxing part of the at-home pedicure. Soak your feet for five to ten minutes in warm water. You could add several drops of essential oil for added luxury if you have some in your home. The essential oils will give your feet the spa treatment they need and will help calm the nerves. Take your feet from the water and pat dry them with a towel.
Remember to clip your nails down and file them to the desired shape. You should avoid cutting corners too deep because you might end up with ingrown nails that could be painful. Decide on the shape of your nails before you start filing them so that you can file them accordingly. You shouldn’t do the back and forth motion on the tip of your nails to avoid weakening them. You should file the nails in a single direction for the desired shape. Use enough force while filing the nail to reshape it but ensure that you are gentle enough not to weaken it.
You should also massage an adequate amount of glycolic-dosed scrub over your damp feet as you pay close attention to your heels. Work the scrub over the skin for several seconds in circular motions. Leave the scrub on for around one minute to give the glycolic acid enough time to remove the dead cells from your feet.
While exfoliating your feet with the foot scrub, you should focus on all areas, including the soles, heels, the sides of your feet, and areas between your toes. If you don’t have a foot scrub, a facial scrub will work perfectly. You should not forget to scrub your ankles as well. Be firm while using the foot scrub but do not scrape too hard. Ensure that you rinse your feet thoroughly and then pat dry them.
Once you are done scrubbing and your feet are now clean, you need to moisturize them. Moisturizing helps hydrate, soften, and protect the skin from cracking. Open your foot mask, separate the contents, and pop each foot into it according to the recommendations on the package. You may even put on a pair of socks temporary over the mask booties to allow the foot mask to work.
Foot masks, which are thick beauty products slathered on the feet, draw impurities from the skin and helps detox the body. The mask will exfoliate, smooth, and moisturize your feet. Remove the mask booties after around 10 minutes and massage the excess mask into your skin. You will enjoy the feel of your newly softened feet. You could massage a little super-emollient balm on your smooth feet for the best results.
Now that you can’t visit your favorite nail salon for a professional pedicure in Vaughan, you have to decorate your nails at home after the at-home pedicure. Just like when doing a hand manicure, it’s important to ensure that you prepare your toe nails. Use a tissue to remove any grease on your nails with acetone.
Paint your nails with the color of your choice. Start by applying the base coat and waiting for it to dry before applying the coat of nail polish. You can use transparent nail polish as the base coat or the nail hardener. Allow the first coat to dry completely before you apply the next coat of nail polish. Following this procedure will ensure that your nail polish stays on longer. Once you allow your nails to dry for around 15 minutes, you can complete the procedure by applying cuticle oil.
The lockdown won’t last forever. At some point, you will be free to get an in-salon pedicure.
