Perfect Pedicure

Toenail TreatmentPicture this – it’s the beginning of summer and you’ve got the dress, the hair, and the shoes... But wait! Have you checked your toes? Nothing ruins the effect of a beautiful pair of sandals like ugly winter feet. I’ve included a step-by-step home pedicure process on how to whip your feet into shape! And there’s nothing like a bit of polishing to keep Toe Nail Fungus at bay.

 

Tool Kit:

Pumice stone/ foot file * nail file/nail scissors/nail clippers * cuticle remover * orangewood stick * large basin * towels * exfoliating foot scrub * nail buffer * moisturising cream * aromatherapy oil * bath salts. If desired; color nail polish * base and top coat.

 

So, here goes:

 

1) Put on some music and get your pedicure tools together.


2)
Fill a large bowl with warm water, add bath salts and aromatherapy oil (tea tree oil is a good option as a preventative toenail fungus treatment). Let your feet soak for 10 minutes, longer if your feet are very cracked, calloused or dry.

 

3) Whilst soaking, take each foot out in turn and use a pumice stone or foot file to rub away the dead skin on the soles of your feet and heels.

 

4) Use an exfoliating foot scrub to rub away the dead skin from the soles of your feet and the side of your heels.

 

5) Rinse off and allow your feet to soak a little more.

 

6) Remove your feet from the bath and dry thoroughly. Remember Toe Nail Fungus thrives in warm, dark, moist places and for that reason it is important to keep your feet dry.

 

7) Apply cuticle remover around the edge of your toenails and gently push cuticles back with an orangewood stick. It is important that the cuticles remain intact; cuticles in good condition prevent toenail fungus and bacterial infections from entering the skin.

 

8) Trim your toenails. Use nail scissors, nail clippers or a nail file. Cut the nail straight across to avoid ingrown nails, do not cut or clip the sides of your nails. You can round the nails slightly at the corners with a nail file. Gently smooth the surface of your nails with a nail buffer.

 

9) Massage moisturising cream into your feet, ankles and calves.

 

10) Remove moisturiser from toenails by wiping with cotton wool soaked with nail polish remover. Apply a base coat to your nails, a color polish and top coat if desired. Allow polish to dry in between coats and use a quick dry spray after the top coat. To prevent smudging allow nail polish to dry completely.

 

11) Clean and dry your tool kit.

 

Keep your feet happy and healthy by applying a moisturiser daily.

 

I hope this helps! It makes such a difference to me when my nails look good – I hope this inspires you to give it a go and get pedicuring!

    I wish to show some appreciation to you just for rescuing me from such a incident. Just after exploring through the the web and seeing techniques which are not beneficial, I figured my entire life was done. Living without the presence of strategies to the difficulties you have resolved as a result of your entire article is a critical case, as well as ones which might have negatively affected my entire career if I had not encountered your blog post. That training and kindness in maneuvering all things was precious. I don't know what I would have done if I had not come upon such a step like this. It's possible to now look ahead to my future. Thanks for your time very much for the skilled and result oriented guide. I won't think twice to recommend your web site to any individual who should get assistance on this topic.

    i do pretty much the exact same thing, local vhosts and all. taking nightly backups of /home is easy with rsync, so when anything goes awry, i just pull down the folder from my vps. since the cronjob itself is in the folder, even my backup script gets backed up. what ide do you use?

    Indian sarees (Wednesday, 19 August 2015 04:08)

    The Sari, originally intended both for men and women, is probably the longest incessantly worn dress in the history of mankind. Sarees may very well symbolize the ethnicity and the rich culture of India, but alongside, they are even endowed with the responsibility of bringing to the fore the true religion and passion of a woman.
