We should always take care of our skin; however, there are times that certain areas take precedent . With the summer looming ahead, it's pedicure season. It's time to give a little love to your feet. Whether you take care of your feet at home regularly or between salon sessions want to do some upkeep - we have the perfect tips so that you're feet are always on point.
STEP 1: SOAK + EXFOLIATE
Submerge your feet into a tub of warm water to begin to soften the skin. Add in a handful of your favorite scrub to massage into your skin. You should choose a product that is an oil based product that will supply moisture while it takes away dead and dry skin. Once you have completed this, rinse and pat your feet dry. Make sure that you use a dry foot file to remove the rest of unwanted skin.
STEP 2: MOISTURIZE
Feet seriously come to life when they are hydrated. Apply a rich foot cream by massaging into your skin to ensure that every portion of your foot is soft. Make sure to get your heels, cuticles and in between your toes.

Make sure to file your nails straight across to create a shape.
