Pretty Feet For Women

Whether it is summer or wintertime, you should take out some time from your busy routine to take care of your feet that have been carrying your load all these years everywhere you wanted to go. Thus, if you are interested in getting instant results, try the steps that follow and you will not have to hide your feet under the covers every night. Feet should be one more part of your body you should be proud of and they should be flaunted and shown off. If a professional pedicure in a nail salon is out of your budget you should know that you can treat your feet inside the comfort of your own home.

First, you have to prepare your feet for the treatment you are about to give them. Fill your bathtub or a bucket with warm water and your favorite foam bath and soak your feet in there for at least 15-20 minutes. You can also add some bath salts or the desired amount of foot soak into the water and let them dissolve and nourish your tired lower body parts. Instead of bath salts, you can try your kitchen's salt; it also works miracles.

After taking each foot out of the water, you should use a towel to dry them very well and then move on to clean and trim your nails. Remember to remove any nail polish from your toes.

Upon completing the nail cleaning process, soak your feet again in the warm water and begin removing the dead skin cells by gently scrubbing calluses and heels with a pumice stone. If you wish to attain soft and touchable feet, this is a very important part of the home-made process. Exfoliating your feet results in having soft feet.

When the softening step is over, remove again your feet from the water and dry them with a clean and dry towel. Massage each foot with a foot lotion that can smooth and smoothen your feet and apply the lotion to the whole foot, from top to bottom, toes to ankle. End this massage experience with light strokes going from your toes to your ankles.

Now it is time to trim your toenails. Remember that you should always cut them in a square shape, which will prevent problems of ingrown nails. Using an orange stick or a cuticle stick gently push back cuticles. Do not attempt to cut your cuticles or rub them away, as they are necessary for keeping bacteria away from your inner skin. Doing this step right will allow you to paint the entire nail by guiding the supple cuticle out of the way.

Then it is time to let the artist inside you take over. Pick the nail polish shade of your choice and apply the first coat slowly. The last coat should be applied once the previous coat is completely dry.

Finally, after letting your nails dry for at least half an hour, rub a dab of olive oil into your cuticles and nail beds in order to moisturize them.

Indulge yourself in a home pedicure that resembles that of a professional spa. Pay attention to the atmosphere you create and experience in the comfort of your own home a pedicure that could only be offered in a salon. Listen to some relaxing music and enjoy the process. After all, you will end up with prettier feet than before and you will be able to wear all those cute, trendy, and colorful nail polish shades you wanted to try for some time.
