Dedicate time to yourself with an easy at-home pedicure to treat weathered, sun-exposed feet. In the same way we reach for masks, serums and moisturisers to revitalise our faces, feet benefit from a pedicure regime to deliver sandal-worthy toes, smooth heals and comfortable, soft feet.

01. Prepare

Carefully clean toenails and remove nail polish before cutting and filing to desired shape. Gently massage the nail contour with a cuticle treatment to soften and nourish this delicate area. Prior to soaking feet, buff off excess dry skin with a pumice stone.

02. Treat

Add soothing bath salts to a basin/bath of warm water and soak feet for 5-10 minutes to soften and treat skin. Dry feet and apply an exfoliating product with a circular massage over the entire foot paying careful attention to the areas where callouses generally appear (heels and ball of foot) and rough skin builds up. 

Delicately roll back toe cuticles with a manicure stick covered with cotton wool.  Rinse your feet in cold water to activate the circulation and carefully dry them, paying special attention to the area between the toes. Lightly massage the feet with a conditioning moisturiser for supple and smooth skin.

03. Polish

If necessary, smooth the surface of your toenails with a nail buffer to stimulate circulation in the nail bed and give nails an even, shiny surface. If you wish to apply nail polish, remember to clean toenails with a cotton pad soaked with nail polish remover to clear away any oily film. Apply a base coat, followed by two thin coats of nail polish. Finish with a chip resistant top coat.

Soak feet

After a hard day where your feet have been sorely put to use, take time to soak them in a soothing bath. Your feet will feel refreshed and relieved in no time.

During the summer months when feet and legs are hot and tired, apply a cooling-effect gel or emulsion to relieve aches and pains.
