With summer right around the corner, we’re thinking about neon fingernails, loose and healthy hair and glowing skin. We’re stocking up our wardrobes with new dresses and bikinis, and replacing our winter boots with cute sandals. But what is one thing girls are always forgetting about? Their feet! They’re hidden away so much during the colder months, it’s not hard to do, but once summer is here, you’ll want to get them out for days on the beach and nights at parties.
So how you can get your feet ready for the summer? Here are my top methods to try out for yourself!!
Stop neglecting your toenails! It’s understandable if your fingernails get most of the special treatment, but at this time of year, you’ve got to share the love. The next time you get booked in for a manicure, get a pedicure done as well. If it’s the first one in a while, have the highest tier of pedicure offered. They’ll deal not just your nails, but your overall foot. Once that is done, future appointments can just be simple pedicures. Some salons will offer discounts for booking both a manicure and a pedicure together, so be sure you ask.
If you are on a budget, or if you like to change your color often, go for normal nail varnish. Be aware, however, that it may chip. An alternative is Shellac. This extra-strong and long-lasting product took the market by storm and doesn’t seem to be losing popularity. Three coats are applied, including a clear top coat, and then dried under a lamp. This means the product is extra-shiny and has the potential to last over a fortnight without chipping.
There are a number of highly effective procedures and treatments out there for your feet. You just need to know the best one for you and your concerns. Fungal toenails can be sorted once and for all with laser treatments. Meanwhile, treatments exist for things like warts, while surgery can treat issues like bunions. Companies like Belcara Health can advise you further on these treatments.
While it is very normal to have hair on your feet, the chances are you will want to remove it if you have an excess amount of it. Ditch your razor; it will grow back quickly and feel rough. Epilate for a speedy but long-lasting result, or wax.
A Nighttime treat
There are many benefits to beauty treatments, but you don’t always have to leave your house to enjoy them. To keep your feet soft, smooth and touchable all the time, get into the habit of doing this nighttime treatment at least a few times a week. It is super cheap and very simple, yet it has incredible results.
Clean your feet and then slather them in the thickest, most luxurious moisturizer you own. While still wet from the moisturizer, pop on a pair of clean, cotton socks. Sleep with them on. During the night, the heat and the moisturizer will work their magic. In the morning, your feet will feel so soft and nourished.
