Pamper Your Feet
Your feet have to last you a lifetime, don’t neglect them. Here are some tips to keep your feet in shape. Healthy feet are very important.

Steps to a Perfect Pedicure
• Remove old polish and examine feet for any nail or foot disorders.
• Soak feet for 5-10 minutes in a warm, vibrating footbath that has an
aromatic, disinfectant solution. Try this one… 1 Tablespoons baking soda and 10 drops of your favorite essential oil.
• Remove dead skin with an exfoliating cream. Callused skin should be treated with a moisturizing product, and then gently buffed with an exfoliating tool. It should never be cut or shaved off.
• Hydrate cuticles with cuticle cream, then pushed back from the nail platewith an orangewood stick.
• Trim toenails and file, with corners gently rounded to prevent them from growing into the corners of the surrounding tissue.
• The highlight of any pedicure is the soothing foot and leg massage (to the knee) that relaxes tired muscles and promotes circulation.
• Finally, apply polish. Try a French manicure or colorful nail art for added appeal!

Milk Bath For Your Feet
Warm 3 cups whole milk. In another bowl, mix 1/2 cup coarse salt and 1/3 cup olive oil. Soak feet in milk for 10 minutes, then rinse. Scrub feet with salt-oil mixture. Rinse and apply a moisturizer and thick socks (heated in the dryer) to seal in the softness.
