Embarrassment and awkwardness. However, fret not as we bring to you four super easy ways that can help you make your feet beach-ready within the shortest time that too at the comfort of your home.
Here we go.
Cut and shape nails
This is the first thing you have to do. Cut your nails and try to do it straight without cutting too much around the corners as that can cause pain, bleeding, and later ingrown nails. Once you have done this, shape nails using filer and removes all the sharp edges.
Soak feet in a tub or bucket
Prepare a foot-soak solution that would help in moisturising your feet so that you can feel relaxed. You can add ingredients of your choice, however a good foot-soak solution ideally include the following – lemon juice, a few drops of essential oil, Epsom salt, and a little bit of shampoo. And, if you are lazy and just want to do it then shampoo would be enough. Make sure you sue lukewarm water.
Exfoliate or scrub
There are many ready-made foot scrubs available in the market you can use. Take scrub in your hand and rub gently all around – especially your heels, ankles and toenails. To get the best results, use a foot filer or a pumice stone, so that all your dry skin comes off without any difficulty. Be firm, however not rough on your feet, because you do not want injuries due to rubbing.
It is the most important part of the entire procedure. It is a must. There are several options to choose from when it comes to moisturizing. You can use a foot cream, heavy lotion or cream, or even almond oil or olive oil. Ensure you massage your feet really well, so that it does not look dry, as improved circulation of blood makes them look and feel better.
So, just follow these steps if you are planning beach holiday at a destination like Goa, and get your feet beach ready.
