Now that the weather is getting warmer it is time to break out those adorable gladiator sandals and peep toe espadrilles which means you need to give your toes some extra pampering. Keeping reading for the best tips on DIY foot maintenance.
-Start off your DIY pedicure by soaking your feet in a tub of warm water. You can add a 1/4 cup of Epsom salts (we love Lavender Epsom Salts for extra relaxation), or a couple of tablespoons of olive oil. Make the foot soak extra luxurious by adding a few drops of your favorite essential oil such as eucalyptus or add slices of lemons or cucumber to the water.
-After soaking for 5-10 minutes slough off rough and callused skin with a foot file or pumice stone. Do not soak for longer than 15 minutes! Soaking too long can dry out the nails and surrounding skin.
– You can exfoliate the skin, nails, and cuticles by swabbing those areas with lemon juice. (The citric acid in the lemons helps the exfoliating process).
– Lastly, moisturize the feet with some natural oils for the best foot care. Add your favorite essential oil such as vanilla or peppermint oil to a carrier oil like sweet almond oil or sunflower oil.
– If you are going to add nail polish to your toes make sure to avoid polishes with toxic additives like phthalates or formaldehyde.
Why stop with beautiful nails? Treat your hair with the same respect! It is just as important to use natural products on your skin and nails as it is your hair. They are pretty much made of the same material anyway! And just think of how gorgeous your pedicure will look when coupled with a gorgeous new ‘do.
