So it’s that time of year where we bare our feet!
Follow these top tips to keep your feet looking great this summer.
One way to instantly smooth the skin is to exfoliate! When you rid the skin of the surface dead skin cells, you create a smoother, brighter appearance. Courser scrubs with particles of salt, sugar, loofah, or crushed seeds are perfect for the feet.
2. Hard Skin Removal:
Firstly soak your feet for 10-15 minutes.
Make it a habit to use a pumice stone or foot file on the heels and balls of the feet to remove the dead skin.
After the dead skin removal it is important that you apply a rich moisturiser to ensure the skin is re-hydrated and re-nourished.
Moisturise your feet daily to prevent hard skin and help maintain softness.
4. NAIL CARE:
Using clippers, trim your toenails straight across leaving a small amount of free edge. Smooth the free edge with an emery board. Gently ease back your cuticles using a cuticle stick.
If you are applying a polish, always wipe over the nail plate with polish remover before applying a base coat. Follow with two coats of the colour of your choice and finish with a top coat.
Tip: apply a layer of top coat every 3 days to keep your varnish looking bright and glossy!
