Home made pedicure: a moment of relaxation in your own home
If, after a long, hard day, you come home with sore and tired feet, what’s stopping you from treating yourself to a relaxing home made pedicure? It is both simple and convenient. All you only need is the right pedicure kit and a few tips to get you started!
What are the secrets to a successful home made pedicure?
The first essential step in your complete home made pedicure is a foot bath. It cleans the skin as well as making it softer. It also soothes over- heated feet and makes nail cutting and filing easier. To make sure that your foot bath is relaxing and effective, the best thing to do is to add sea salt and essential oils. After a day at the office, relax and give your swollen feet a foot massage. To do this, you need to use the right pedicure kit, including natural oils or a moisturiser.
Home made pedicure: how to shop for the right equipment
If you want to indulge in a complete home made pedicure, you need all of the equipment necessary for a proper pedicure kit. Firstly, you'll need essential oils or sea salts for your foot bath, but also a rasp or a pumice stone. This will allow you to exfoliate your feet on a regular basis to remove dry skin and calluses. Don't forget that you will need a moisturiser, to apply to your rinsed and dried feet after a scrub or foot bath. Another option is to follow one of the century’s old, traditional recipes for a home made pedicure.
