Each spring, women want to show off their beautiful pedicures.  It can be tempting to go to a local nail salon to get your feet in shape for Easter, but you can also save money by giving  yourself an at home pedicure.

What Supplies Do I Need For My Home Pedicure?

  • Clean Basin
  • Pumice Stone
  • Sugar Foot Scrub
  • Moisturizing Cream
  • Towel
  • Nail Clippers
  • Cotton Balls
  • Rubbing Alcohol
  • Essential Oil:
    • Tea Tree Oil: anti-bacterial and anti-fungal
    • Rosemary Oil: warms the feet and improves circulation
    • Peppermint Oil: soothes tired, aching feet

Steps For A Perfect Home Pedicure:

  1. Start out by adding lukewarm water to the clean basin.  To test the temperature, dip your elbow into the water.  Be especially careful if you are a diabetic or have a loss of sensation in your feet.
  2. Add 5-10 drops of essential oil to the water.
  3. Soak your feet for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Use the pumice stone to gently smooth rough areas on your feet.
  5. After pumicing, use the sugar scrub to massage your feet.
  6. Rinse and thoroughly dry your feet.  Make sure that you dry the area between your toes really well to prevent skin breakdown.
  7. Apply a thick cream moisturizer.  Do not put any cream or lotion in between your toes.  (Be very careful when walking after using cream or lotion as it is slippery and can cause falls.)
  8. Use your nail clippers to trim your toenails straight across.  (You should boil your clippers in water for 10 minutes before each use to keep them sterilized.)
  9. Clean the nail surface of each toe with a little bit of alcohol.
  10. Paint your nails using a polish such as Dr’s Remedy.

If you do decide to visit a professional nail salon, watch out for signs of fungal and bacterial infections including thickening and discoloring of the nails, or any red, hot, swollen areas of the skin.  Dr. Schlam at Hollowbrook Foot Specialists treats these conditions, and can answer any questions you may have regarding your own home pedicure.  Call (845) 298 – 9074 or click here to schedule your appointment with us.
