Ah, summer. Time for beach days, vacations, and enjoying the sunshine. Not a time to be worried about the state of your toes or spending your fun money making sure they look picture perfect all summer long. That’s why we’ve developed this DIY pedicure guide that will give you salon-quality results, at a fraction of the price.
Step One: No More Icky Skin
It’s no secret we’re more likely to walk, jog, and hike more in the summertime, but with great adventure comes tough callouses. That’s why the My Solemate 2-in-1 Foot Scrubber by Love, Lori will be your
best friend solemate. This scrubber stone packs a combo punch for smooth, soft feet. With equal parts pumice stone and moisturizing soap—packed with shea butter, aloe, and vitamin E—it’s a relaxing, effective way to rub away calluses and dryness while making sure your feet stay smooth and clean all summer long.
Get the Tough to Reach Places
The FootMate System is a safe, stable way to cleanse and massage your feet without risking a fall. Soft inner bristles gently massage your skin while the stiffer outer bristles buff away rough, dry patches. The system’s Rejuvenating Gel is packed with tea tree oil and Vitamin E, which cleanses and conditions your skin to give you fresher and softer feet.
Replenish Your Skin
Once you try Baby Foot exfoliating masks, you’ll never go back. The treatment removes dry and dead skin from feet layer by layer with little effort from you. All you need to do is pull on the booties and kick back for an hour. Then rinse off, and go about your life. Fair warning: in a few days, that dead skin will start to peel off bit by bit. It’s a little weird but a lot satisfying. The gel in the booties is packed with natural fruit acids and extracts that target dry skin and break down the desmosomes that hold the layers together. The process will be completed within two weeks and you’ll be left with softer and smoother skin.
Step Two: Easy Nail Care
Keep Your Nails Clean-Cut
Whether clipping, shaping, or fine-tuning, this Beauty Tool Kit by Seki Edge does it all with superior ability and more durability than your typical beauty kit. Crafted in the mountains of Japan, these tools represent a centuries-old heritage of excellence passed down from samurai sword makers which you will see reflected in the quality of the finished product.
Sustainable Nail Polish is Always a Great Choice
Choosing a color for your toes can be hard, but choosing a sustainable, plant-based vegan nail polish is easy. Maker Andrea Cid was treating herself to weekly manicures when she noticed traditional polish wasn’t treating her nails so well. So she began making a non-toxic alternative. Her *hype polishes are not only Made in the USA, but they are 7-free, meaning they don’t have the top seven most common nail polish chemicals in them. Instead, their formula has a plant base that is made with corn, yucca, and potatoes. It’s cruelty-free, vegan, glossy, and long-lasting, too.
Get Yourself a Stable Pedicure Work Station
Get the best home pedicure with an all-in-one nail care station designed to make the job easier. The Stedi Pedi Home Pedicure Kit provides a stable platform for you to work on while you’re on the couch, in a chair, or even in bed. There’s storage for nail tools and even a helpful LED task light. The Plus option also includes a nail dryer and a lit magnifier to help you get salon-worthy results.
Step Three: Apply the Finishing Touches
Seal in Moisture and Prevent Calluses
The ‘Banish My Callus’ emu oil cream from Emu Joy combines the deeply moisturizing goodness of pure emu oil with other natural ingredients to help reduce calluses on your feet and hands. Because it’s packed with fatty acids, it absorbs well into the skin. It can help ingredients like aloe, comfrey, lanolin, calendula, and chamomile better absorb, too, making it a more natural way to get rid of your calluses and keep your feet hydrated.
An On-the-Go Moisturizer
The Heel and Elbow Moisturizing Sock by Yu-Be is a great way to finish up a DIY pedicure or manicure. Simply slide on the socks and let them work their magic as they moisturize cracked heels and dry elbows and hydrate your body wherever you are.
When it’s sandal weather, you always want your feet looking their best. With these DIY pedicure and manicure products, you’ll get quick, easy, and less-expensive salon-grade results.
