Whether we like to admit it or not, most of us tend to forget about taking care of our tootsies as soon as the wintry weather hits, only to panic and realise the extent of the neglect as springtime draws nearer! Fear not – we’ve got the scoop on how to treat your toes to the perfect at-home pedicure. Putting your best foot forward has never been so simple…
Soak and scrub
The dry air doesn’t do your skin any favours, so cracked heels and flaky cuticles are likely to be a reality when you finally whip off those winter boots in exchange for gorgeous peep toe sandals.
It’s time to soak and scrub! Immerse your feet in warm water for at least five minutes. This softens the skin, making it easier to scrub away the nasty, dead pieces. Use a foot file to tend to the tougher areas and a gentle foot scrub to exfoliate the rest.
Improve blood circulation and pamper your feet with a generous foot massage (or bargain with your partner or a friend to do it for you!). Finish off with a bit of moisturising Essie Nail & Skin Serum with Guava Extract. It’s a natural nail revitaliser for gorgeous, ultra-hardy nails that won’t quit!
Cut and Shape
Using clippers/nail scissors and an emery board, cut and shape your toenails just the way you like them. Remember to cut straight across to avoid painful ingrown toenails.
