Soak it up
One of the first steps towards acing a mani-pedi at home is soaking your hands and feet in warm water with sea salt. How does this help, you ask? When you soak your hands and feet in lukewarm water, you soothe your muscles and prevent bacteria from settling in. Moreover, soaking makes the upcoming exfoliation process much simpler. Post this, trim your nails and file them to the shape you want.
Scrub all the dead skin away
Dead skin buildup can make your hands and feet looked aged and also make the complexion dull. This is why exfoliating is of prime importance to the mani-pedi process. We suggest you get your hands on the St. Ives Apricot Scrub. This product will exfoliate and scrub away all the dirt from your skin while leaving it moisturised. Also make sure you scrub using a pumice stone as far as your feet are concerned.
Once your hands and feet are rid of all the bacteria, make sure you moisturise them. For that, you must use the Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Glow Body Lotion. This one’s made with pure cocoa butter—something that restores the appearance of dry skin to reveal a natural glow. The best part? It won’t make your hands and feet feel greasy!
Your cuticles need utmost care and for that, you must rub Vaseline Petroleum Jelly over them. This will help them turn soft and pretty up your hands and feet.
Time to paint
This is the coolest part of a mani-pedi. Start with a base coat that will help extend the life of your manicure. Up next, choose a bright shade from the Lakmé 9-5 Long Wear Nail Colour and apply it on your nails with two coats. Finish off with a top coat and you’re good to go!
