1. Remove Existing Nail Polish and Shape Nails
It is good to remove the old nail polish and clean your nails before starting the pedicure. Then cut your nails with nail cutter and shape them with nail file as like you want. We usually cut the toe nails very close to skin. But if the nails are grown in legs, it will look beautiful. It will be also beautiful if we shape the nails into square. Apply the cuticle cream and clean your nail with cotton.
2. Soak your Feet
Add some shampoo in warm water tub. Soak your feet for 10-15 min. It will be easy to scrub if the legs are soaked in water for a quiet long time so as to remove the hard skins easily. Now we do not have the chance of soaking the legs for more time. That is why the legs are soaked in hot water for some time and scrubbed in the name of pedicure. After having bath, the legs will be wet and easy to scrub. Those who have, sinus and cold problems we can use hot water in a bucket with liquid soap and the legs can be soaked in that.
3. Scrub your Feet
The foot scrubbers are available in the shops with steel handle. We can remove the dead cells and cracks with this. Scrub the cracks and dirt’s with the scrubber. This is very good for cracks. Others can use pumice stones. Pedi egg can also be used for scrubbing. But this will not be suitable for wet legs.
For some people, skin will be rough and hard like knots. They can use the corn blade and peel the hard skin. Then we have to remove the dirt’s and impurities with the pedicure kit or the attachment with the nail cutter. Then wash the legs with soap and brush which is specially made for legs.
4. Moisturize your Feet
After scrubbing wipe out the legs and apply any heavy moisturizing cream on the nails, legs, toes and the gaps and massage it well. After it gets dried, apply nail polish. This is pedicure.
Those who have more cracks in the legs, when applying ointment at the night time before going to bed should wear a socks to yield better results. Otherwise all the ointment will be wasted in the bed and it will take more time to cure. It is enough to do pedicure and manicure twice a month.
