Brides these days are becoming very clever with their pedicures! These cute little toesies have anything from the saying "i do" to the couples initials...
Here are some tips that will help keep your toes in tip top shape:
1. Remove polish from toenails.
2. Fill tub or footbath with warm-not hot-water. Add your favorite bath salts and one tablespoon of olive oil. The salts soften dry skin and calluses, and the olive oil moisturizes the skin. Soak feet for 10 to 15 minutes.
3. Gently rub an exfoliating body scrub on the bottoms of your feet. Rinse your feet with cool water. Rub your heels and the balls of your feet with a pumice stone to remove dead skin and soften-not remove-corns and calluses. Don't use a callus razor, an instrument used for shaving dry skin from the feet. Removing corns and calluses in this manner can lead to serious foot infections.
4. Thoroughly dry your feet with a clean towel.
5. Trim toenails, cutting them straight across to prevent ingrown nails. Gently push back cuticles with an orange stick. Don't cut your cuticles, just gently push them back. Cuticles are necessary to prevent bacteria from entering the skin.
6. Moisturize your entire foot-including your cuticles and in between your toes-with a good foot cream. Massage cream into skin.
7. Apply a clear polish to your toenails. Wait a few minutes until the polish is dry.
8. Apply a color polish to your toenails. For more intense color, repeat.
9. Apply a clear polish to help prevent chipping.
10. Clean up stray color with a Q-tip dipped in nail polish remover.
