PUT YOUR BEST FOOT FORWARD
Beach and sandal weather is here but are your feet fit to be flaunted?
Then read on and step up your beauty routine with our perfect pedicure
Clean your toe nails thoroughly and use cotton wool and polish remover to wipe away old polish.
Soak feet for a few minutes to relax and sooth them. Hot feet can get gritty and grimy – use a nail brush to get rid of stubborn dirt.
Rough skin doesn’t look good and isn’t a comfortable sole mate.
Try Neals Yard Remedies Pumice Foot Scrub that works on even the toughest soles and also treats tired feet
Then really moisturise and refresh those tootsies. The Body Shop’s Peppermint Intensive Cooling Foot Rescue is so soothing, cooling, non greasy and easily absorbed into tired feet.
A new innovation by Lush Repeat Orange Foot Balm has a plant based formula with a plant-based formula containing orange peel wax, a by-product of the juicing industry and a vegan alternative to lanolin and inspired by traditional cold creams.
Time for some cuticle duty! Use a cuticle remover which has a softening effect so that you can then push them back gently with an orange stick.
Trim nails straight across and remove rough edges. Never cut or file edges round as this can cause painful ingrowing toe nails. Use an emery board to file any snags away. Don’t saw in on direction.
Now apply your favourite colour. Use cotton wool to separate toes or invest in some toe dividers.
Our favourite colour in polish for the beach and poolside is from Chanel. The shades are Sailor and Cruise
TREATS FOR FEET
With hot feet in mind there’s lots of products around that can make you a cool customer.
T for Toes by Lush is an absorbent kaolin powder, teamed with antibacterial tea-tree use directly on your feet, in your shoes or trainers or even winter boots.
When you are sunbathing don’t forget to apply sunscreen all over your feet or badly burned ones will later be a sore walking point!
