Tips To Do Pedicure At Home
Clip And Shape Nails
First, get rid of your previous nail polish and the traces of last pedicure using a mild acetone or nail polish remover with a cotton pad. Then, cut your nails neatly by making sure that the corners are not cut too much as it can lead to hurting deformed nails. Finally, finish by giving nails a proper shape using a flat filer or glass file to make the uneven corners and edges smooth.
Next step is to give your foot an enjoyable foot bath. Fill lukewarm water, in a tub or a basin, so that it covers your ankles, with bubble bath and also few drops of important oil according to your needs. Add some salt to the water to lessen any swelling or to soothe exhausted feet.
By putting some pebbles in the tub, you feel more relaxed when you lay your feet on the pebbles. And before filling your bath tub with water, don?t forget to put a towel under it so as to avoid any spills from your pedicure. Soak your feet in the water and relax for 10-20 minutes. Using a towel, dry your feet.
Pull your feet out of foot bath, dry them and then rub some cream or oil on each toenail. Massage the oil and push back dead skin on nail plate using cuticle stick. Leave the cream for few minutes.
