The last time I got a pedicure done at a salon was sometime in February but feels like ages ago. Due to Covid-19, my regular trips to the parlour, like most, came to a halt and I turned to DIYs for help. After watching countless tutorials on how to do certain beauty treatments at home, I'm proud to say that I know how to do most of them now. Full body waxing, facials, facial hair removal, manicures and pedicures--I've become a pro at practising these beauty treatments. Parlour wali didi who?
Speaking of doing pedicures at home, I take the longest to do this because there is plenty of work involved. First, I have to soak my feet in warm water for 15-20 minutes, then scrub them with a foot file, clip and file my nails after. All this is fine, but what I find the most annoying is dealing with dry, cracked heels. They're a pain to treat and if you're not careful, you could even damage your skin. However, I have an awesome DIY foot soak recipe for you, if you can relate to my annoyance. Read on!
The most interesting part is that it involves using a mouthwash!
Things you will need:
How to make it:
Step 1: Pour the warm water in a foot soak tub or bucket to dip the feet in.
Step 2: Add the mouthwash to it.
Step 3: Now add the vinegar.
Step 4: Dip your feet in the tub and allow them to soak for about 15-20 minutes.
Step 5: Once the time is up, use the foot file to scrub the dead skin away.
Step 6: Pat dry and immediately moisturise your feet with a foot cream.
I recommend that you use a clear or yellow mouthwash because the green and blue ones can stain the skin. Cracked heels be gone!
