If the thought of wearing toeless sandals on the beach has you running away from the travel agents in your clumpy trainers, listen up. There’s no need to be anxious about bearing your pinkies this summer – this article will show you how to pedicure like a pro, even if your feet have been so neglected they may as well have belonged to someone else!
1.File And Shape- The first thing you need to do is to address your toenails. Cut, file, and shape them straight across, ensuring you do not over-cut your nails.
Using a foot buffer on dry feet, buff away any hard skin, concentrating on the balls of feet, heels, and if hard skin is present along the side of your feet, buff this away too. We love Soap and Glory’s Utterly Fantastic Foot Buffer, Boots, £8.99
3.Tackle Dead Skin
The next point of call is to target and remove any dead skin around the nails. Apply a cuticle remover generously to the cuticles to gently remove any dead unwanted skin.
4.Exfoliate And Soak
Choose a good foot scrub, and rub over both feet, then rinse off. This really will rejuvenate your feet. We love Love and Pepper’s Sweet Feet Peppermint Foot Scrub £7. Afterwards leave your feet soaking in warm water to soften cuticle are ready for removal.
5.Cuticles- Using a cuticle removal stick gently push back the cuticles and scrape off dead skin.
Invest in a good moisturiser, as this is paramount in acquiring beautiful feet, Ensure you spend a few minutes each day moisturising your feet, and you will be amazed at the results. We love Liz Earle’s Foot Repair Moisturiser, £14.25.
Once you have completed these steps, you can go ahead and paint your pinkies with your favourite shade.
