Get hip, healthy and sexy feet that are ready to show off. As temperatures rise, many women enjoy wearing sandals that make them feel pretty and feminine. But over 40 feet may need special attention to prepare for their full view debut. After all, they've been covered up all winter long.
Now that spring has sprung, focus on your feet with a professional pedicure or DIY version at home. Whichever route you take, just make sure your feet have received attention from front to back before making an entrance. Some of the worst offenses women make when baring their feet are nails that are unpolished, chipped, have not been clipped, filed or an old pedicure that has grown out.
It is best to invest in a professional pedicure when your feet first peek out from their winter hibernation. Once your feet have received professional TLC, you can use that asa template to guide your at home pedicures.
Hip, healthy & sexy feet are more than just pretty polished nails. One sure way to wreck a beautiful pedicure is to have a back view exposing dry or cracked heels. As we age, hormonal changes cause our skin to become dry, including the skin on our feet. Women who frequently wear open heeled shoes are especially vulnerable to dry, cracked heels due to air exposure. In more severe cases, as feet slide from side to side while walking in open heeled shoes, the friction can eventually cause skin to become dry, cracked and even split. Smooth, soft heels project a youthful appearance and require consistent attention between pedicures. There are excellent products to keep the skin on your feet moisturized and looking beautiful.
The right products and tools make it easy to maintain beautiful feet. A beauty supply store will carry the widest selection and highest quality tools with the widest selection at reasonable prices. However, most local drug stores also have an adequate selection. The ideal set of tools to care for your feet should include a toenail clipper, nail file, nail smoother, nail separator, cuticle oil, cuticle pusher, polish remover, 100% cotton balls, foot smoother, foot lotion, polish and top-coat. A nail caddy will keep your supplies neatly organized and within easy reach. The right tools stocked in a convenient location will help you to consistently maintain a foot care routine that will keep your feet looking their hip, healthy & sexy all year long!
