DIY Pedicure for cracked heels
If you’re like me your not looking forward to getting into sandals. I have horrible feet my entire life ) Well, I think so anyway. I used to never wear sandals or even take my socks off because I was so horrified at my dry cracked heels and yucky toenails. It wasn’t until I had a friend who went to esthetics school, that I actually cared about my feet. She gave me some wonderful advice on how to get your feet ready for summer!
My feet were in such bad condition she recommended a medical pedicure to start out with, then DIY Pedicure for cracked heels. The medical esthetician can do the majority of the work and you can keep up with the day to day work at home.
In order to keep your feet cleaned up and fresh, my esthetician recommended the following.
Every 2 months:
- Get a professional pedicure at a reputable salon or spa
Once per week:
- Soak your feet in a foot bath.
- File your heels in with a foot file
- File toenails in a straight line with curved edges
- Push back cuticles on toenails
- Give yourself a paraffin treatment
If you having a hard time keeping up with the weekly or daily foot care you should try to at least go once a month for a regular pedicure. I know that regular pedicures aren’t affordable for everyone. Look up local beauty schools in your neighborhood. Often they offer services for a fraction of the price as the professional spas.
