Are you one of the millions of women who don’t like their feet because it’s dry and cracked?
If you tried different creams, medications or pumice stones with little or no results or don’t have enough money to visit the spa for weekly pedicures, don’t worry. You can achieve results for your feet in the comfort of your own home.
According to Dr. Jeffrey Best, a Podiatrist 25 percent of his patients complains about having corns, calluses, and dryness. Pedicures are a very popular spa treatment possibly because of unattractive feet, which adds to the billions of dollars being made in the spa industry. Pedicures are no longer just about having beautiful polished toe nails. Cracked, dry and sometimes painful feet not only hinder the foot appearance, but it can cause infections.
For a safe and healthy pedicure at home use only podiatrist approved tools. For example you can use a heel smoother that safely and quickly remove cracked, calloused, and dry skin. You can purchase a battery operated hand held heel smoother with a diamond crystal buffing tip that makes your feet soft, smooth, and attractive. A pedicure at home is simple to do. You can light candles to get in the mood. We show you how to have a home pedicure experience below.
*To soften dry and calloused feet soak them in a warm bubble bath. Afterwards dry your feet off completely with a soft towel.
*Rotate a heel smoother across the feet in circular motions to exfoliate. Don’t hold the heel smoother in the same spot for more than 2 seconds.
*Use a good quality emery board that is brand new, to buff and shape the nails.
*Protect and moisturize the skin by rubbing lotion on the feet. For seriously cracked heels or calluses, apply lotion again before bedtime. Wear socks in bed to keep feet soft and moisturized.
*Polish your toenails if you want. Let them dry and you’re done.
