Keep Your Feet Pretty


Pedicures in warm weather are the best and most convenient method to keep feet soft and beautiful but there are certain things you can do to keep your toes happy all year long.

Soak your feet in lukewarm water for 5 to 10 minutes and soften the feet.
Then use a pumice stone to remove dead skin.
Clip and file your toe nails straight across to avoid ingrown toe nails.
Moisturise your feet with a good lotion or foot cream and preferably sleep with loose cotton socks so that you can lock in the moisture.
You should do this at least once per week.
This will help repair damage caused by wearing open toe shoes all summer long.
Apply nail polish if you so desire.  This encourages healthy nail beds as well.

Tired feet need care so that they look soft and supple again.
After a long day wash and apply foot cream with a soothing massage.
The foot cream may be medicinal and it can help in healing the cracks, dryness and smooth out rough skin.
Tight shoes lead to corns and calluses.
To de-stress, a warm water soak or foot massage gets the blood moving and one will get a peaceful and a restful sleep.
