So it’s that time of year where we bare our feet!

Follow these top tips to keep your feet looking great this summer.

1. Exfoliate:

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.

3. Moisturise:

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.


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!
