Pour a quarter-sized dollop of lotion into your hand and start at heel, rubbing repeatedly with a light touch, softening skin and soothing stresses. Move up foot, rubbing lotion in bottom of foot. Use thumbs to make small circles as you work your way over sole. Pressure can be increased anywhere it feels good. In fact, ticklish feet prefer a firmer hand; it's light touch that tickles most!
Pay extra attention to toes. Rub between toes, using a gentle touch. Finish by rubbing each toe individually. Give both feet equal care.
Finish with toe nails. File any jagged or sharp edges and shape toe nail. Even if you do not want to polish toenails, use a nail buffer to smooth nail ridges for a clean, healthy look.
If possible, use a nail buffer that has three separate finishes. Start with roughest surface first and give each nail 20 strokes. Give each nail 20 more strokes with next surface, and finish with 20 buffing strokes with finest surface on nail buffer. Use that goofy looking sponge toe separator. This tool keeps polish from smearing as toes bump together.
When polishing toe nails, keep in mind beating your feet take during day. Start with a clear base coat of polish to prevent yellowing on toenails resulting from dark polish painted directly on nail. Two coats of color will help nails stay attractive for up to two weeks. Finish with two sheer coats of a protective top coat to keep your pedicure looking great.
Now that your feet look and feel festive, take those pampered toes out on town.
