How to give yourself the perfect pedicure
Having perfectly polished tootsies is a quick and easy way to make a woman feel instantly sexy.
It may no longer be sandal wearing weather, but there's nothing nicer than kicking off your shoes after a long day at work and looking down at some beautifully looked after feet.
The perfect pedicure doesn't have to cost the world either. There's no need to go to expensive salons which waste your time and money. Instead, a good bit of the old DIY will provide you with fantastic feet in no time.
Clip it away
First things first, you need to trim your nails down to the desired length. Don't cut them too short, as this will make painting more difficult.
Invest in some hard wearing toe nail clippers, https://www.fushi.co.uk/accessories/pedicure/toe-nail-clippers-by-fushi-wellbeing.html made to tackle even the toughest nail. Clippers made from hardened steel will ensure that they last a really long time.
Always cut the nails straight across, never slant them down at the sides. Uneven edges or sharp points can be smoothed off with an emery board or nail file.
Brush it away
Foot rasps are a great way to deal with hard skin on the feet. They work under the same premise as a body exfoliant - getting rid of all the nasty debris and leaving you with smooth, soft and supple skin.
They can also remove corns or calluses in between the toes, as well as really tackling the problem areas of your heels.
A good idea is to keep your foot rasp in the shower to ensure that you give it some good regular use!
It's as easy as that! Once you have trimmed and exfoliated, pick your favourite colour and whack it on your tootsies.
Good colour ideas for autumn are deep reds and browns, as they reflect the seasonal change.
Always try and wait at least five minutes after painting before walking around. The biggest cause of smudges and smears is done after painting, so be patient and leave the paint to dry.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
