4 EASY STEPS TO FLIP-FLOP READY FEET

IT’S TIME TO GO BARE…

Poor toes spend all winter imprisoned in boots. Now that strappy-sandal season is upon us, it’s time to pamper your feet to get them flip-flop ready.

HERE’S OUR BARE FOOT 4 EASY STEPS TO GETTING FLIP FLOP READY FEET AT HOME.

 

STEP 1 – EXFOLIATE

Get rid of those dead skin cells and give your feet a new lease of life.

Pull your first foot out of the foot bath and wet your leg up to your knee. Using a granular foot scrub like Bare Foot lemon and sage/peppermint and plum foot scrub £4.25  to really treat your feet.

Tip: for a real spa moment dampen a clean towel and warm in the microwave for 15 to 20 seconds, then use it to help rinse your feet.

 

STEP 2 – SOAK AND RELAX

Don’t cheat yourself out of this step as it not only gets your feet sparkly clean but also softens dead skin ready for exfoliation.

Fill a large bowl with warm water and place on top of a towel. Add a 50p size dollop of foot soak to help soften any dry skin and prepare for exfoliation.  Bare Foot peppermint and plum soak is perfect for this. Fancy making your own? – add a few drops of tea tree oil, rosemary and peppermint oil along with a tablespoon of Epsom salts to your water.

Grab a magazine and sit back and relax for 5-10 minutes.

Tip: For really dry heels leave for 15 minutes to soften the skin.

 


STEP 3 – MOISTURISE

Apply a generous amount of foot moisturiser and massage your feet and lower leg for a few minutes. Use long circular movements up the legs for an invigorating massage or gentle circular movements along the feet and toes for a more relaxing massage

Tip: For the ultimate treat, apply foot lotion, wrap them in cling film for a few hours (or even overnight to wake up to super soft feet)

 


STEP 4 – FILE AND POLISH

Shape your nails using a good quality nail file  Then choose your nail colour. Use a toe separator to allow easy reach to those tricky areas.  Apply a base coat and then add 2 layers of nail varnish and a top coat.  Remember to go along the top edge of the nail for a longer lasting pedicure.

Tip: To keep flip-flop ready apply foot cream at least 3 times a week and scrub your feet every week. Try to alternate between a colour and natural polish like French manicure to ensure nails don’t become discoloured.
