Everything you need to know about DIY pedis
It’s always nice to give your toes a once over before breaking them out of hibernation (and breaking out the sandals). But, if you can’t make it to the salon for a pedicure, don’t worry—doing it yourself is easier than you think. We asked Julia Bautista, founder of Naked Beauty Bar in Toronto, to share her best tips on how to master the at-home pedicure. Trust us: Your feet will never have looked better.
These are the tools you need for a pedicure at home
First, prep your at-home station, Bautista says. These are the must-haves she recommends having on hand.
- Basin (or bathtub)
- 1 tbsp (if using a basin) or 1 cup (if using a bathtub) Epsom salt or bath salt (dead sea salt)
- 2-3 drops of essential oils of your choice
- Foot file or pumice stone
- Body scrub
- Foot cream or body butter/cream
