Types of Products Needed for Home Pedicure

A pedicure can make your feet look great and make you feel like a million bucks. But if you don’t have time to visit your local salon for a professional pedicure – or you are looking to save money – then a home pedicure can be just as good. Getting an inexpensive, do-it-yourself pedicure is a great way to spend a lazy afternoon, and the types of products that are needed for a home pedicure are likely already in your bathroom cabinet, or can be purchased at your local pharmacy or big box retailer.

For a home pedicure, you’ll need:

• Toenail clippers
• Toenail file
• Exfoliating foot scrub
• Pumice stone
• Cuticle pusher
• Moisturizing lotion
• Towel • Nail polish
• Toe separator

Do It Yourself Pedicure

Preparing your feet for a home pedicure can be a great way to relax. Begin by washing your feet in a mildly soapy water solution, and then removing an old nail polish from your toenails. Next, allow your foot soak in the soapy water for around fifteen to thirty minutes, which allows your toenails, cuticles, and your skin to soften.

Clip your toenails in a straight line across the top of the nail to the length that you desire. A straight cut on the toenail helps to prevent painful ingrown toenails and other problems. Cut the toenails to the length that you desire. Use your toenail file or an emery board to file away any rough edges from the toenails.

Apply a generous amount of your favorite exfoliating foot scrub to your feet, gently massaging the foot to remove any dead skin, rough skin, or calluses. Rinse your feet in lukewarm water, using a pumice stone on areas of rough skin that remain.

Work in a circular fashion around corns or calluses, applying light pressure with the pumice stone. Rinse your feet again. Dry your feet completely with a towel, and then lavish your feet, toes, and legs with your favorite moisturizing lotion or foot balm, massaging these areas for around ten minutes.

This leg and foot massage will remove tension and stress from your legs and feet and also helps to boost your circulation. Use a cuticle pusher to push your cuticles back with care. Remove any lotion residue from your toes and toenails. Separate your toes with the toe separator. Apply a strong base coat of nail polish to your toenails, and follow up with two additional coats of your favorite nail polish color. Finish with a top coat.
