How To Do A Pedicure At Home For Myself

Read below for the complete procedure of pedicure at home.

1. Prepare your nails

The first step to a salon-style pedicure at home is to get rid of any kind of existing nail paint/polish from your toenails.

You will need:

  1. Nail polish remover
  2. Cotton
  3. Toothpaste
  4. Toothbrush

Dip cotton in a nail polish remover.

Rub on your toenails and remove your nails paints.

Now, apply toothpaste on your nails for 3-4 minutes.

Start rubbing your nails with a toothbrush nicely.

This will remove all the dirt from your nails and give your nails a whiter look instantly.

2. Trim And File Nails

Now you need to trim and shape your nails.

You will need:

  1. Nail cutter
  2. Nail filer

Make sure you cut straight across and don’t cut the corners too much, as this can lead to painful ingrown nails. Then use a nail file to give them the desired shape. A nail file is a tool used to gently grind down and shape the edges of nails. First, decide the shape of your nails so that you can file them accordingly.

Shapes (square, oval, pointed)

3. Soak Feet

This is the relaxing step of the pedicure. Soaking your feet in warm, fragrant, moisturizing water is a great way to relax.

You will need:

  1.  Tub
  2. Pumic stone/loofah/sponge

Homemade pedicure soak

1.     Warm water (enough to cover your ankles)

3.    Shampoo (1 teaspoon)

4.    Rose petals (optional few petals)

5.    Lemon juice (2 tablespoons)

6.    Baking soda (1 teaspoon)

21 uses of baking soda for skin

You can also add a few drops of essential oil of your own choice. These usually calm the nerves and give your feet the spa treatment.

Sit comfortably and soak your feet for (15-20) minutes.

Once the nails and skins have softened, clean the nails with the help of the brush, and use a pumice stone to dislodge dead skin on the heels.

Pat dry with a towel.

DIY Cuticle Cream:

  1. Yogurt/fresh cream/any oil (1 teaspoon)
  2. Honey (1 teaspoon)

Once your feet are dry, massage a little cuticle cream on the base of your toenails. While the cream softens the dead skin, again soak your feet for a few minutes. Now, scrub your skin using a pumice stone/ foot file. This will remove dead skin.

Now, remove the cuticle cream, and push your cuticles with an angled cuticle pusher. Cuticles are the soft skin at the bottom of your nail where the fingernail cartilage and skin meet. Never cut your cuticles. This removal of the cuticle helps your nail grow and promotes healthy nails. Be gentle.
