5 Simple Steps to a Spa Pedicure

I LOVE a good spa pedicure!  BUT…it’s hard to find time to get a professional pedicure.  So, I am sharing my secrets to get that “spa smoothness”, in your own home!

Step 1: Soak Your Feet

  • Grab a pot, bucket, tub or whatever your feet will comfortably fit in and fill it with warm, warm water.
  • Add a tablespoon of baking soda and a squirt of your favorite hair conditioner to the water. (This helps soften those calluses and combats stinky feet odors.  Plus, it makes your skin super soft!)
  • Set your timer for 15 minutes and relax!  DO NOT MOVE FOR 15 MINUTES!!  (I say this as a reminder to myself, because I have to physically force myself to relax.)

Step 2: The Callus Eliminator

  • Be Natural Callus Eliminator is magical!  I love this product!!
  • Remove your feet from the water and dry with a towel.
  • Grab a pair of gloves, or use a plastic bag to cover your hands.  Squirt about a quarter-sized amount of product into your palm (while wearing the gloves) and rub the product onto the bottom of your feet.  Let product sit for 3-5 minutes.
  • DO NOT use on broken or cracked skin, because it can burn.  Follow the directions carefully.

Step 3: Scrub

  • I use the Mr. Pumice scrubber to scrub the bottom of my feet.  Keep the callus eliminator on during this process.
  • Scrub each foot for a few minutes until feet are smooth.

Step 4: Rinse

  • Put your feet back in the water and rinse all of the callus eliminator off.
  • At this point I use a foot scrub or body scrub (whatever I have on-hand) to wash my feet and legs. (A baking soda paste is also a great exfoliant if you don’t have a scrub.)
  • Rinse thoroughly.  Remove your feet from the water and pat dry.

Step 5: Finishing Touches

  • Now is the time to clip, file and buff your toenails.
  • Massage a foot cream or thick lotion onto feet and legs.
  • If painting toenails, remove the lotion with a little bit of alcohol or polish remover.  Add polish if you want.  (I personally like to leave this up to the professionals.  I usually spend more time removing polish from my toes than actually painting them.  And I never have the patience to let them dry properly.)

That’s it!  Super easy (the hard part for me is trying to get my husband to do this for me).
