Step by Step your way to a Relaxing Pedicure

Thursday, February 28, 2013
For gorgeously smooth feet, there really isn't anything quite like that relaxing pedicure. While many women may associate a pedicure with just simply getting your toenails painted, there really is much more to this favorite beauty treatment! A pedicure not only leaves you with colour rich painted toenails but also smooths and softens the skin for that velvety finish. Every girl loves treating herself to a pampering pedicure at the local salon but thanks to products for manicures and pedicures at Gerrard International, you can carry out a truly invigorating pedicure all in the comfort of your own home. 

The key to a successfully applied pedicure is to follow a step by step approach. This means ensuring that you first remove any dry skin on the foot. Dry and hard skin can ruin the stylish appeal of a professional looking pedicure so products for manicures and pedicures at Gerrard International will ensure a smooth finish. To first remove dry skin use the pedicure essential tool – the foot file. Using on dry feet, file in one direction to smooth away any hard skin.

After you have removed hard and dry skin, you can treat your feet to a relaxing soak in a foot bath by adding warm water and Jessica Zenspa Blissful Bath. This is the truly invigorating part of any pedicure so make sure you sit back and relax as your feet soak. 

Once you have relaxed after your foot bath, the next step of the pedicure is to give your feet a good exfoliation. Products for manicures and pedicures at Gerrard International include a huge range of skin energising foot exfoliants such as the Jessica Zenspa Purify Enzyme Scrub. Exfoliating your feet is a necessary part of any pedicure as it helps to remove excess dry skin while smoothing away any unsightly calluses or corns. To use the scrub, simply rub into the feet and wash off with warm water after about 1 to 2 minutes. 

By this point in your relaxing pedicure, your feet should feel fabulously refreshed but for that softening finish, you should add a moisturising crème. Moisturising products for manicures and pedicures at Gerrard International include a wide variety of hydrating and beautifully fragranced crèmes such as the Jessica Zenspa Pampered Soufflé. Apply the soufflé by massaging it into dry feet.

Now that you have followed each step of your relaxing pedicure, you can finish the pedicure with a professional finish by shaping your toenails and then colouring them with a gorgeous coat of Jessica’s colour rich nail polishes.
