Soaking and Stroking: DIY Pedicure

Ladies, the flowers are in bloom and the birds are chirping to announce that spring is here. We can pull out our gladiator sandals, peep toe pumps and open-back heels to show off our pretty feet and pedicure. Our shoes may cost a pretty penny, but our pedicures don’t have to and we can also repair and protect our feet in the process.

What you need:
Epsom Salt
Large Bowl or Tub
Toe Clippers
Nail Polish
Exfoliating Scrub

Step: 1
Fill the large bowl or tub with hot water (not scolding hot).
Step: 2
Add about ½ a cup of Epsom salt to the large bowl or tub. Epsom salt is great for aiding in relieving soreness and tenderness in aching feet.
Step:  3
Soak your feet for about 5-10 minutes and then use a handmade exfoliating foot scrub to remove dead skin cells on the bottom of your feet, especially the heels.
Step:  4
Dry your feet, by bloating them with a towel. Now take your toe nail clipper and trim your toe nails (now that they are soft they will be easier to cut).
Step:  5
If you are heading out for the day, now, you can begin to polish your toes with a base paint and then a couple coats of top coat nail paint.
If you are going to bed put on your handmade lotion at, to moisturize your feet and allow the oils and butters in the lotion to repair your feet.

 Enjoy this quick and easy DIY pedicure because you deserve a little bit of pampering. Ccourtesy of “My Frugal Adventures”
