How do you treat your feet?

 

Have a pedicure. Go on. Your feet work work hard for you, so be nice to them.

You’re probably wondering what those two strange things are at the end of your legs that recently emerged from under layers of winter socks?

If you’ve recently unwrapped your feet after months of keeping them covered, they may look a little neglected. Because why bother with foot care and pedicures over winter, right? Right. Well, now you need to make it up to your feet with some pampering.

You could go the more expensive way. But you’re worth it, remember. So go the salon way. Why do we treat our hair to regular salon visits, while our feet, which work so hard for us, get second-class citizenship? Get a pedicure.

Trim your toenails, cutting straight across the nail, and then shape with an emery board, then use a cuticle softener and remover on each nail, before trimming and pushing back the cuticles.

Make sure your toes are completely dry before applying polish, and finally, moisturize using a good pedi cream.

There. That was worth it. And your feet feel loved again.
