DIY Basic Pedicure

          I have been receiving a lot of requests on 'how to do pedicure at home'. So I have come up with a basic pedicure that can be done at home. Please read on for the steps.
         1. Remove old nail polish with a good quality nail polish remover.
         2. Massage nails with lots of petroleum jelly.
         3. In a tub of warm water, add foot shampoo and soak feet in it for 10-15 mins.
        4. Wipe dry after soaking feet in clean water.

        5. Clip nails according to your choice, but I suggest cut straight. Looks good that way.
        6. File nails according to the shape but in 1 direction only. 
        7. Push back cuticles with a cuticle pusher very gently.
        8. Soak feet in warm soapy water again and brush to clean your nails.
        9. Use pumice stone or foot file to remove dead cells and roughness from heels, soles etc.
      10. Wash feet, dry it and massage with a rich foot cream.
       So these are the simplified steps for pedicure at home. Every week if this pedicure is done religiously than you will not have any feet problem and your feet will become beautiful and soft as well.
