If feet weren’t that important part of our body, good shoes wouldn’t have cost an arm and leg.
But here’s the tea: clean and well-pedicured feet can make 10-dollar slippers look better than Louboutins. That is why celebrities spend so much on those luxurious spa pedicures.
Not everyone can afford such luxuries – but thanks to brands that understand this dilemma, you can enjoy an equally amazing pedicure at home. And what better reason to try at-home pedicure than the current lockdown situation.
So today, we are going to tell you how you can take better care of your feet without stepping out of the house.
Let’s start our step-by-step at-home pedicure guide:
Step 1 – Exfoliate Rough Heels
Every good pedicure starts with exfoliation – because feet have a lot to exfoliate. Our feet’s skin is different from that of our face. It is a bit rougher and tougher and therefore accumulates for dead skin over time. Remove all the dirt and dead cells with Scarlett Paris Purifying Scrub.
Formulated for hands and feet, this scrub has a gentle yet effective peeling formula. It removed dead skin from the deepest level of your skin to make your feel cleaner, smoother, and softer. The scrub is made of natural salts that are also rich in nourishing ingredients. A magical blend of essential oils gives this scrub a pleasantly intoxicating fragrance.
Step 2 – Cut and File your Nails
Now that the layers of dead skin and calluses are removed, it will be easier to cut and file your nail. Nails are basically what gives away how much you take care of your feet. So, no pedicure can ever be complete without a bit of trimming and filing. The right tools can make your job much easier. Our top recommendation for you is the Almost Famous Clip It Rose Gold Nail Clipper Duo.
You get two different sizes of high-quality nail clippers with a soft-touch rose gold polish. These clippers are designed for ease and precision. You can keep this portable pack in your bag.
Step 3 – Soak in Salt
After you have trimmed your nails to the desired size and shape, it is time to soak your feet and relax. Saltwater is excellent not just for the skin of your feet, but also for the muscles. This dual-action Detox Soak + Scrub is a perfect blend of exfoliants and rejuvenating ingredients.
It has potent salts and clay for gentle but deep exfoliation, and a blend of ginger, lavender, and eucalyptus to take all the stress off your feet. Let the salt work its magic from your feet to mind.
Step 4 – Apply Mask
Very few people realize that masks are as important for our feet as they are for our faces. Feet masks are an essential part of any spa manicure. So, why not include them in your at-home feet care routine? A feet mask we highly recommend is the Peeling Lavender Mask by Grace & Stella.
You can put the mask sheet on like booties and let the ingredients work their magic. Relax for an hour. Watch your favorite movie or read a book as you wait. You’d be surprised at how amazing the results are. The dead skin will just peel off your feet.
Step 5 – Massage in Cream
Now that your feet are as clean as baby’s, it is time to massage in a nourishing and hydrating cream. Since feet are drier than our face and the rest of the body, they need intensive moisture therapy. Our best bet for all kinds of feet is the AHAVA Dermud Intensive Foot Cream.
The cream offers soothing relief for dry and cracked feet. It includes mineral-rich dead-sea mud, aloe vera, jojoba oil, shea butter, and coconut oil that protect and heal the skin and lock in moisture to provide lasting hydration.
Step 6 – Apply Nail Color
Don’t you love your clean, soft, and beautiful feet now? It’s time to make them look even prettier with some quality nail lacquer. For spa-like toenails, we always go for MTJ Nail Lacquer.
We love the super shiny formula and the breathtaking range of colors to choose from. What’s better: the formula actually has conditioning ingredients that will nourish and strengthen your nails.
Step 7 – Finish off with Cuticle Oil
Seal the deal with this groundbreaking cuticle oil from Londontown. It is essentially the answer to all your nail and cuticle related concerns. It moisturizes the cuticles to prevent cracking and dryness.
It works as a nail strengthening serum, thanks to the nourishing blend of essential oils. Plus, it doubles up as the final coat for your nail lacquer.
