Home Spa Pedicure
A day at the spa can be a relaxing and comforting experience. Unfortunately with today’s economy it can also be a very costly experience. Although spa’s can be fun and relaxing nothing’s better or cheaper than giving yourself a relaxing Spa Pedicure. For those who aren’t familiar with spa pedicures or how to give yourself a spa pedicure I will help guide you in the right direction. Here is my personal guide to a relaxing spa pedicure including tips and great products to use!
- To start off your Spa style pedicure I suggest using a foot spa which can be purchased at any local retail store such as Wal-mart, Target, or Kmart. If you can not afford to do this then I suggest using a small bucket big enough to place your feet in. Fill your foot spa or bucket ¾ the way full and add about four tablespoons of Epsom Salt. This will help to soften the rough skin on your feet. Soak feet for about 15-45 minutes depending on you time limit.
- Now you’re ready to get to work. Using a pumice stone which can also be bought at your local retail store scrub the bottom of your feet with your favorite foot scrub. I suggest using Freeman Bare Foot Products with Tea Tree Oil which helps to soothe tired feed and helps to scrub away rough or dry skin.
- After scrubbing all the dry or rough skin away soak feet for another 5-10 minutes to assure all skin comes off of the feet.
- Apply a small amount of your favorite lotion to your feet and gently massage your feet. Again I suggest using Nexcare Advanced Foot Cream which can also be purchased at your local retail or drug store. This will help your feet to feel and stay soft!
- When using foot products make sure that you buy the right products for your foot type. If feet are dry and rough be sure to purchase products for dry and rough feet.
- Pumice foot scrub is a good product to use for dry or rough feet.
- Foot scrubs that have tea tree oil tend to soothe tired feet and can be a great product if you stand or walk on your feet a lot.
- The Peg Egg is a new product on the market that helps to reduce the roughness of the skin on the bottom of your feet if a pumice stone doesn’t rid your feet of all roughness.
