Top Tips On Getting Your Feet Summer Ready | AD
Today’s post is a top tips on getting your feet summer ready. Specially in this current climate I think its so important to become self sufficient when it comes to some beauty habits. Granted, I literally lighted candles for the hairdressers to come back in business. However, when it comes to my manicure and pedicures I had it covered. I actually find it relaxing to look after my hands and nails whilst watching something nice on Netflix. With the correct tools and products I believe we can save money on the long run and still get great results.
Top Tips On Getting Your Feet Summer Ready
To kick start the home pedicure I applied a pair of Footner Exfoliating Socks to get rid of all the hard skin. The results are incredible! After just one use you’ll get baby soft, summer sandal feet. All I had to do is to wear the socks on for 60 minutes and relax. In about 5-10 days, all the dry skin will shed leaving behind smooth feet. The active ingredient in the socks is Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA). They help loosen the dead skin whilst the moisturizers in the formula condition the feet. No need of scrapping, filling or grating. Very important to mention, the exfoliating socks are not suitable for diabetics.
Footner Exfoliating Socks (€19.99) are available in Boots, Superdrug, Tesco, selected pharmacies and online.
To moisturize the skin and keep it soft and hydrated I followed on using the CCS Foot Cream. This is a Swedish best selling formulation that provides protective and preventative every day skincare for the feet. It is widely used by podiatrists and suitable for the diabetics. The CCS Foot Care Cream contains 10% urea, a moisturizer naturally found in the human body. It helps revitalize the skin and keep it soft and smooth. For the ultimate treatment, use the cream every night and just pop a pair of cotton socks over. You’ll wake up to super soft skin.

The perfect nail polish application
A great tip for extending the longevity of the nail polish is to always wipe clean the nails with a cotton pad soaked in nail polish remover before paint application. This gets rid of any dust, debris or naturally occurring oils on the surface of the nail plate. That will prevent the polish from adhering which can cause to chip.
I use toe dividers whilst painting to prevent the nails from smudging. Tissue wrapped around the toes can do the job as well.
I always use a base coat to prevent staining and to help the main color to stay on the nail for longer.
To get an even color, paint two thin even applications of color in order to get an even coverage.
The final stage of the application involves a top coat. For me this step is crucial in making my color last. A top coat will provide a high gloss shine, protects the polish from chipping and extends the longevity of the color.
If I make any mistakes, a nail corrector brush or a cotton bud dipped in nail polish remover will correct any smudges.
A slick of almond, jojoba or vitamin E oil will soften and nourish the cuticles.
