Caring for your feet at home
As summer approaches, many of us begin to transition from socks and shoes to sandals and open-toe shoes. Preparing your feet for this change is essential, and luckily, it's easy to do from the comfort of your own home. By giving yourself a nice pedicure, you can get your feet ready for the warmer weather.
The importance of a foot care routine
Taking care of your feet is incredibly important, and not just for aesthetic reasons. When we wear tight shoes, our skin can form calluses to protect itself. However, if we don't remove these calluses regularly, they can become problematic. Moisturizing your feet is also crucial in order to prevent damage and maintain elastic, healthy skin. Just like your hands, your feet need regular care and attention.
How to make your feet healthy and soft
Keeping your feet healthy and soft can be a challenge, but with some regular care, you can achieve beautiful, well-cared-for feet. While completing a foot care routine occasionally is helpful, there are other steps you can take to ensure the health of your feet. For example, after showering or bathing, make sure to always thoroughly dry your feet to prevent bacteria growth.
How to get rid of hard skin on your feet
To reduce the appearance of rough, hard skin on your feet, consider switching up your shoes regularly. Wearing the same pair of shoes for too long, or shoes that are too tight, can contribute to the formation of calluses. Additionally, treating your feet to an at-home pedicure can help control the formation of calluses and hard skin. By using tools like a Callus Remover and Foot File regularly, you can keep your feet looking and feeling their best.
How to do a pedicure at home
Giving yourself a pedicure at home can feel like a daunting task, but with the right products, it's easy to achieve beautiful, healthy feet. Our Pedicure Kit includes effective tools, like a Callus Remover and Foot File, that work together to gently remove calluses and hard skin. Once you've completed the necessary exfoliation, our Miracle Foot Lotion is the perfect finishing touch. This deeply moisturizing lotion will leave your feet feeling soft and smooth for days to come. With these products, you can pamper yourself with a spa-quality pedicure right in the comfort of your own home.

What you need
At-home pedicure steps
Step 1: Apply the Callus Remover to the callus on your feet at approximately 10 cm. Allow the product to do its work and soak for 2 minutes.
Step 2: Take the foot file and file carefully over the hard skin in a back-and-forth motion. Use the coarse side for this. Finish with the fine side for a smooth finish. After removing the callus, rinse your feet in a footbath.
Step 3: Apply the Miracle Foot Lotion. This moisturizing lotion will make your feet softer and moisturized. Massage the lotion well.
Did you know that a good foot massage is also healthy? It stimulates blood circulation. Besides massaging your feet, it is healthy to walk on your bare feet regularly for a 'natural' massage.
If you cannot remove all the calluses immediately, it is better to repeat the treatment regularly. This way, you can enjoy soft and well-groomed feet.
