We started as an idea and a dream 6 months ago, and we’re live and kicking 6 months later!
Summer is coming, whether you’re staying where you are or going on holiday, your feet deserve a bit of air! Being cooped up in your shoes and socks all winter, they want to be set free while it is still sunny and warm outside!
Let’s give our feet a bit of love this weekend and prepare them for flip flops, sandals or even no shoes!
Thanks to makeupandbeauty.com we have found a great way to do your own pedicure!
What you will need:
1. TRIMMING AND SHAPING:
Remove your old nail polish with some cotton dipped in nail polish remover. Trim your nails. Make sure you cut straight across and don’t cut the corners too much as this can lead to painful ingrown nails. Use an emery board or nail file to give them the desired shape. Some people may prefer to cut nails after soaking as they will be softer and easy to shape. I do this first as my nails get too soft for shaping once they are soaked.
2. FOOT SOAK
A good foot soak goes a long way in beating the stress after a long day. In a basin fill warm water enough to cover up to your ankles and add:
Once you are done scrubbing, wash your feet clean and moisturise them.
Use moisturiser of your choice. A face cream you found to be too heavy for the face can do the trick!!
Almond oil and olive oil (1tsp each) with 10-12 drops of your favourite essential oil also makes a good home made massage oil for feet.
Rub a generous portion into your feet and massage well, better still if you can get someone else to do the massage for you. Ask your hubby or a friend! Sit back and relax! Regular foot massages help keep nerve endings stimulated, improve blood circulation, nourish the skin and foot muscles.
If you have cracks, follow up with a cream formulated especially for that. You can also use Vaseline mixed with lime juice, wrap with plastic for 15 minutes. Wear loose cotton socks and tuck yourself in.
5. DRESS THEM UP!
Paint your toe nails with a colour of your choice. Always apply a base coat. Wait for it to dry and then apply a coat of nail polish. Let it dry completely before you apply the next coat. This will make your nail polish last longer.
Showcase your feet in stylish footwear, a beautiful anklet, pretty toe ring or even tattoos…whatever you fancy!
