It’s so easy to take our feet for granted. We give them so little respect for being the workhorses of our bodies day in and day out. And after a summer spent walking around barefoot, our tootsies could use a little TLC. So before you slip into those Jimmy Choo stilettos for the holiday parties, let’s fix up those dry heels with a simple DIY pedicure!
I’m sure you follow a daily face regimen to keep your skin healthy and radiant, so why not start the same for your feet? Good news: You don’t need an expensive spa treatment to achieve this. By spending just a few minutes a day on an at home pedicure, you save yourself $$$ and don’t even have to shave your legs! Win/win? I think so.
Now who’s ready for a quickie?
Fill a small basin (or bathtub) with warm water. For every six cups of water add one cup of milk for nourishment. Soak your feet for at least 20 minutes, allowing the milk to soften dry, tired skin.
Pat your feet dry with a soft towel. Lay the towel under your feet, turn on your Amopé Pedi Perfect Electronic Foot File and begin filing the trouble areas on your feet. Check if you have achieved the desired level of softness. If not, keep on going.
Side note: I have extremely ticklish feet and usually end up kicking the pedicurist in the face, but I didn’t have that issue moving at my own speed with the file.
After rinsing, apply Amopé Pedi Perfect lotion to your feet and let it soak in. This lotion is nice and thick, so a little bit goes a long ways. (Optional: Pull on a pair of socks for ten to let the moisture soak in)
4. Polish it off
Apply your favorite shade of polish to your nails. If you’re an Essie addict like me, you have an entire arsenal at your disposal. Don’t forget to apply a clear coat over the color once it has dried to extend the life of the pedicure!
Apply an exfoliating foot cream nightly to ensure continuously supple, hydrated skin. Voila!
Amopé, Portuguese for “love your feet”, is a new brand enabling women to respect their feet. Pick up your Pedi Perfect and the matching moisturizer in the footcare aisle at a Target near you!
Don’t forget to treat yo’ feet every once in a while. They need lovin’ too.
