Before a pedicure it is necessary to wash your feet well and remove the old varnish. Take the pedicure kit and disinfect all the instruments.
Now we proceed to the main stage of the procedure.
To begin with, the skin of the legs needs to be softened. Prepare a bath for a pedicure with warm water, add in it a soap foam (it can be a shower gel or shampoo). To enhance the effect, it is useful to add a little sea salt to the bath. Put your feet into the water for 5-15 minutes, so that the dead dry skin cells soften. Now we wipe our feet with a towel and go to the next, most responsible stage of the pedicure.
To make the right pedicure, take a nail scissors or nippers, cut the protruding part of the nail in a straight line. The shape of the nails on the legs should be square to prevent the ingrowth of the nail into the skin. Using a nail file, trim the cut and rough ends of the nail in the direction from the edges to the center.
With a manicure spatula or orange stick, carefully slide the cuticle. To facilitate the performance of the pedicure, you can apply a special preparation on the cuticle, which softens and removes excess skin, then after 5 minutes remove the remnants. Using a spatula, try to clean the nail plate from the adherent particles of the cuticle. Draw a stick under the fingernail to clean the dirt that has accumulated there and dry skin cells.
Now the nail file can clean the fingertips from the coarsened dry skin, and also remove the cracked skin on the calluses.
To make the nail plate look smooth and shiny, it should be polished using a two-sided file for the pedicure. The dark blue side of the nail file gently swipe the nails from all sides, especially in the cuticle area. On perfectly smooth nails, the varnish will last much longer.
To make your home pedicure perfect, you need to give proper attention to the feet. Our goal is to remove superfluous coarse skin. Your first assistant in this business is pumice. If the skin is not softened enough, hold your feet in a warm bath for another 10 minutes, then treat with pumice foot and heel. Pillingi and leg scrubs also help to get rid of rough skin particles.
After this procedure, the cleansed skin needs moisturizing and nourishing, so lubricate the heels with a nutritious cream and massage lightly.
