At home pedicures are much easier than you can imagine, and the best part is that it won't cost you a dime.  Better yet, it's done in the comfort of your own home, so if you're sensitive about people looking at your feet, this is the perfect solution!

How to do your own Pedicure

Sandal season is fast approaching, so it's time to get those toes looking pretty, but why spend money at a fancy salon when a DIY pedicure is more cost effective and convenient ? Just follow these easy steps!
  1. Soak your feet

First you'll need a basin filled with warm water, add some body wash to the water.  If you plan to do these pedicures on a regular basis, you can purchase a bottle of  foot soak online for 10 bucks or less. Scholl has a refreshing foot soak, along with a variety of options for cracked feet and other skin issues.

2. Scrub feet

Allow your feet to soak for about 10 minutes then remove one foot from the tub.  Rub some homemade foot scrub on your feet, then use a foot file to scrub away dead skin, and calluses. Repeat this step with the other foot. Follow up by using a pumice stone then rinse feet with clean, warm water.

3.clip toes

The next step is to clip and clean your toes. You'll need a nail file, nail clipper and an emery board. Cut your toe nails to an appropriate length and shape, then use an emery board to smooth out rough edges.  It's also important to clean out your cuticles; after this step add some cuticle oil, or any other natural oil to moisturize the cuticles.

4.Polish toes

It's now time for the final piece of the puzzle, applying your nail polish. Add a base coat first, then let dry for a minute or two. Next add the nail polish of your choice, you'll need two coats, but make sure you apply the polish in thin layers. Finish with a clear top coat.

5. Moisturize

Healthy Tips for Healthy Nails
Healthy nails play an integral role in our overall health and well being. Beautiful, strong nails can be compromised when we overlook the things that contribute to healthy nails.

How to achieve Healthy Nails

Ever wondered why your nails refuse to grow, do you suffer from soft brittle nails? The reason for this can be based on several things. Let's take a look at how your lifestyle might be damaging your nails, and what we can do achieve healthy nails.

Eat healthy Foods

The food we eat has an effect on our bodies, including our nails—shocking, I know! So a well balanced meal is important. Nails are made from protein, so a protein rich diet such as lean fish, and meats are essential for healthy nails. Other protein rich foods include milk, yogurt, cheese,eggs, almonds and lentils. And don't forget your veggies, Brussels sprouts, broccoli,kale and spinach should be added to your diet as well.

Keep hands and Nails Clean

Wash your hands often with soap and water several times throughout the day. To thoroughly clean your nails apply soap to a toothbrush ( nope, not the one you use to brush your teeth lol) and gently scrub your nails and the surrounding skin. Ensure that the toothbrush used is mild or soft, and do not apply too much pressure when scrubbing-- so as not to break the skin and cause infection.

Trim Nails Regularly

Your nails must be trimmed at least every two weeks, or depending on how fast your nail grows. After trimming use a nail file or emery board to smooth away rough edges; doing this will prevent painful snags or breaks.

Don't Bite your nails

Nail biting is a nasty habit that can harm your nails and affect your overall health. There is often dirt, sweat and germs beneath the nails which enters the mouth once you start to bite them. Plus, is there anything more unattractive than nails that have been bitten down to the core? Yuck!

Remember to Moisturize

Just like the rest of your body, your cuticles and hands need moisture too. I would suggest using natural oils such as coconut or avocado oil. Gently massage the oil into your hands and cuticles at least once per day-preferably before going to bed. And there you have it; a few useful tips guaranteed to result in beautiful healthy nails!
