Foot and Ankle
1. - Soak your feet. - First you will have to get or buy a container large enough and deep enough to accommodate and submerge your feet totally. Add a few drops of mild soap to the bowl and fill it with warm water halfway. You can also add a few drops of your favorite essential oil in order to enjoy an aromatherapy while you relax. Sit in a comfortable chair and soak your feet in the water for 10 minutes.
2. - Removes dead skin and calluses. - Use a pumice stone or a lime in order to remove dead skin and calluses from the soles of your feet. You may have to bend your legs back to reach the entire area of your heels. Do not forget to check your fingers for calluses and dead skin.
3. - Take care of your cuticles and your nails. - Use an orange stick to push the cuticles of each of your toes. Then use a large or special nail clipper to cut your nails. If you decide to leave them a little longer, make sure they do not exceed the edge of the finger. Also, cut your nails straight, along the entire width of the nails, not in a way that the edges curl in or down. Keep in mind that badly cut nails can become embody and this problem is very painful.Limate the edges of the nails with a cardboard file or emery after having cut them.
4. - Moisturize your feet and ankles. - Get a massage on each foot, including the fingers and nails, with a good quality moisturizer. Consider using a foot roller or foot massager before or after applying the humectant in order to massage your feet even better. Feel free to use a generous amount of moisturizer at this step, but be careful when walking if your feet they did not absorb all the cream.
5. - Paint your nails. - If you want to paint your toenails, start by using a small amount of nail polish remover, in order to remove any excess moisturizer that may have been left on them. Then apply a transparent base on each nail and let it dry before applying the next layer. Apply 1 or 2 layers of colored enamel allowing the first to dry before moving to the second. Finally, use a clear enamel coating to give the final finish to each nail.
