I am a huge fan of Pinterest as many people are. I love getting new ideas, trying new recipes, seeing what people are up to and feeling inspired.
But sometimes, when you go to try something, you'll quickly learn that it doesn't turn out how you'd hope. There are times it can be discouraging and it might turn you off from trying something because it can be a waste of time.
That's why I've decided to keep trying some cool pins to see how well they work, and report back to you all!
So tonight I'm going to start with some great tips I've gotten from PInterest when doing an at home pedicure.
I've begun to do weekly at home pedicures about a year ago. It's something I do every Sunday night and I love this mini ritual I have! I started just soaking my feet with warm water and epsom salt but eventually I decided I wanted something that would give me a better pedicure. So off to PInterest I went!
Here's what I have found have worked the best to get soft, post spa looking feet! Try them out and see what works best for you!
Get your extra warm water ready in your foot soak and add your salts or oils like you would normally do. Now, to help remove the dead skin from your heels, add about 1/2 cup vinegar (either white or cider) and a 1/2 cup of listerine. Yup that's right! You'll want to let them soak between 15-30 minutes.
The best tip I have found though is in the exfoliation. I've used my epsom salts with pumice stone, but now I typically only use brown sugar. (Obviously keep a separate stash for pedicures.) After you've soaked your feet, use your pumice stone to exfoliate with about a small handful of brown sugar. You only need to do this for 2-3 minutes to see great results. Pumice in circular motions over your your feet, I apply a little bit of pressure to help get them smooth. The damp brown sugar will be sticky so make sure to rinse your feet and wash your hands just like your normally would. You'll notice your hands will even feel pretty soft after this!
Lastly, moisturize! You can use any type of lotion, I prefer cocoa butter lotion (I tend to use the Vaseline brand) and make sure you have a pair of thick socks handy. You don't need a lot of lotion, rather take a bit and massage it into each foot. I then add an extra thin layer of lotion on before I put a sock on. After about an hour or so, I'll repeat that for double moisture!
So there you have it! I've tried a bunch of different things to get the perfect pedicure routine. For me, this gives me the best results every single time. So go ahead, take an hour to give yourself a pedicure, you deserve it. Spoil yourself!
