How To Take Care Of Your Feet Between Pedicures

Summer is just around the corner and soon we will all be slipping on our favourite sandals, flip flops, and peep-toe pumps. That means it is time to book an appointment to get your feet out of hiding and into summer shape. A pedicure is a great way to pamper yourself and will leave you with soft, smooth soles and a shiny coat of your favourite colour brightening your toes. Weekly pedicures would be a dream to keep your tootsies looking great all summer long, but for most that is not a reality. Here are some things you can do to prolong the results of your pedicure and keep your feet looking great all summer long.

Take Care Of Your Feet Between Pedicures

Hydration Is Key
Soak your feet in warm water and Epsom salts to enhance hydration. This practice is also a nice opportunity to relax and soothe achy feet.

Some typical summer activities like swimming in chlorinated pools and walking on hot sand can leave you with dry, dead skin on your feet. Use an exfoliating scrub to slough off dead skin and use a quality foot file to smooth out calluses and rough patches.

Lock in moisture while your feet are still damp from the soak with a rich and hydrating moisturizer. Lotions scented with lavender are relaxing, and peppermint lotion can be invigorating and revitalizing.

If your polish still looks good, a fresh topcoat will prolong its life. If it has become a little chipped or worn, remove it with polish remover, massage in some cuticle oil, and layer base coat, colour, and topcoat. Choose quality nail colour products to avoid drying and damaging your nails. And remember that regular nail polish should not be kept on for longer than about two weeks. Any longer could allow the pigment to discolour the top layers of your nails.

Choose Your Shoes Wisely
Shoes are the perfect frames for the beauty of your pedicured toes, but the combination of sweaty feet, ill-fitting footwear, and the wrong materials can rub, causing unsightly raw spots and blisters. Natural fabrics and a good fit will keep your feet looking and feeling great.

Regular pedicures are about more than just a flashy coat of brightly coloured polish on your toes. Spa pedicures are also about self care, relaxation, and foot health. A moment of quiet pampering can leave you feeling rejuvenated and taking care of your feet will prevent infection, promote circulation, and increase the health of your toenails. Plus your feet will feel soft and smooth, and yes, your nail polish will scream summertime.

Q: What should I wear for my pedicure appointment?
A: You can wear whatever you like. If you are wearing pants, we do recommend choosing something that can easily be lifted up your leg. We also suggest wearing open-toed shoes such as flip-flops so you do not risk smudging the polish post-treatment.

Q: How long does a pedicure take?
A: Depending on the type of pedicure you choose, your appointment will last anywhere from between 40-75 minutes. To prolong your day at the spa, consider adding a manicure or treating yourself to a massage.

Q: Are manicures and pedicures for men too?
A: Yes, we offer manicure and pedicure services to everyone. Manicures and pedicures are not exclusive to women and are an excellent form of relaxing and hygienic self-care, which is becoming increasingly popular with men. Many men find relief from ingrown toenails and enjoy getting regular pedicures.
