Right now it is sunny, gorgeous, and in the 80’s! Hooray! Summer is so close I can taste it. Soon we will be wearing shorts, tanks, swimwear, and cute wedges every day and enjoying the beach. But in order to get our feet flip-flop ready, we need to undo the damage of dry winter feet. Today, I’ll show you step-by-step how to do a pedicure at home using some of my favorite products.
Now before we begin, I have to warn you that my feet are NOT my best feature. You might be saying to yourself, “Of course they aren’t silly. All feet are ugly.” But my feet are uglier than most ugly feet, so I apologize beforehand for subjecting you to them. Okay, the ugly-foot-disclaimer is taken care of so let’s carry on.
Recommended Items Needed for Pedicure:
Before I begin my pedicure I gather the following:
- Foot bath
- Epsom salts
- Tree Hut foot scrub
- Tree Hut foot cream
- Foot grater and foot file(s)
- Pumice stone with brush
- Nail Polish Remover
- Cotton balls
- Nail clippers
- Nail brush
- Nail scissors
- Orange stick
- Cuticle remover
- Nail file
- Nail polish
Once my supplies are in place I am ready to begin the pampering!
How to Do a Pedicure
Step 1: Remove any nail polish from the toes.
Step 2: Fill the foot bath with hot water and Epsom salts and soak feet for 5-10 minutes.
Step 3: Scrub feet with an exfoliating scrub. I like to use Tree Hut foot scrub because it smells good enough to eat and does a great job at exfoliating the rough patches.
Step 4: Remove one foot at a time and use the foot grater and file to smooth rough heels.
Step 5: Remove feet from the bath and slather on a cooling foot cream. Yes, this post is sponsored by Tree Hut, but even if it wasn’t I would recommend using Tree Hut foot cream. It’s been a favorite of mine before writing this post. It soaks in readily, leaves your feet feeling smooth, and has a “cooling effect” that I dig. It contains organic shea butter, argan oil, and is Paraben free with no DMDM. It rocks. I buy my Tree Hut products at Walmart and you can also find them on Amazon.
Step 6: Use cuticle cutters to clip off any dry cuticles.
Step 7: Use an orange stick to push down cuticles and to clean under the nail bed.
Step 8: Trim toenails using nail clippers or nail scissors. I prefer the scissors.
Step 9: File the nails straight.
Step 10: Paint toes any fun color you desire and enjoy your summer-ready feet!
