Spending most of their time hidden away, our feet are easy to ignore during the winter. Not spending much time in the limelight, we often neglect them and they can easily become dry, cracked and even prone to blisters (especially after enduring your favourite heels on a long night out). However, when it hits summer and the open toe heels and sandals come out of our wardrobes, no little piggies get to stay at home and we are forced to face the effect of countless hours spent walking, running or dancing with no repair. No need to panic! We have the 6 simple steps for an at home pedicure that will leave your feet pampered, polished and poolside ready when the time comes as well as some top tips from Essie’s Global Lead Educator, Rita Remark!
Step 1: Cleanse & Soak
Start off by cleansing and soaking the feet to soften the skin. Either in the bath or using an at home Foot Spa such as the Homedics MySpa Luxury Foldaway Foot Spa, relax and put your feet down this time into the lukewarm water for around ten minutes to allow them to properly soak. Not only is this a fantastic way to start off your calming at home pedicure, but soaking the feet will soften dead skin cells, making them easier to remove.
Rita’s expert tip if you’re short on time: start your pedi after a long bath or shower if you don’t have the spare time to soak your feet.
