Having a pedicure at a salon every few weeks can really add up. Maybe you just don’t have the time to do it every few weeks. There are ways to do a pedicure at home that are just as effective.
Listerine foot soak
If you have any type of fungal infection or athlete’s foot, you can use plain Listerine to help cure it. I suggest using a 10-minute soak in 1/4 cup of Listerine, 1/4 cup of white vinegar, and 1/2 cup of warm water. This will help get the dead skin off. If you have really tough calluses on your feet, you may want to soak your feet for an hour.
Electric foot bath
If you have an electric foot bath that warms your water and makes bubbles, this is a great way to relax your feet. These electronic foot baths are not very expensive, if you get them at department stores like Walmart. You can find them for as cheap as 30, maybe even less. The more expensive ones however, make you feel as though you’re getting a foot massage at a salon. This is a good investment because after a hard day of work, you can come and relax. It feels like the Spa is in your home . However if you don’t want to invest in one, you can just use a basin that you can get for under $5.
If you recently been to the salon to get a pedicure, you can keep your pedicure lasting longer. After you get your pedicure, soak your feet every few days in warm water to keep the dead skin off. You can use a nice moisturizing lotion to keep your skin smooth and soft. I love using cocoa butter or coconut oil. It smells wonderful and it works.
