Guide to Pretty Feet
Have you always wanted to have beautiful feet? There are several tips you can follow to achieve this.
Give your toes time to breathe.
You might think that having your toes in polish always keeps your feet looking good, but this is not always true.
While a fresh polish might give your toes a pretty look, it’s not the case with old polish.
If you always paint your toenails, they may change color, usually turning reddish or yellowish, which, as you can tell, isn’t pretty.
To avoid this, you should avoid having your toes painted all the time.
How To Make Ugly Feet Pretty?
A good rule of thumb is to paint your toes every other week. If you have noticed them losing their natural color, leave them bare for a few weeks. They should get back to their usual color.
When you take off your nail polish, you not only give your toes time to breathe but also allow checking your toenails for problems like onychomycosis (nail fungus) or hangnails.
For the best outcome, use a polish remover that doesn’t contain acetone. This is because acetone-based nail polish removers are too harsh on the nails and can cause the nail plate to thin and develop ugly ridges.
1) Soak your feet
Everyone knows that they need to soak their feet to look good. Unfortunately, most people don’t do it right.
You should avoid using too hot water as it can cause the skin to become dry and crack. This happens because the hot water quickly evaporates from the skin and draws moisture from the outermost protective layer of the skin.
You can put aromatherapy oils in the tub water if you want to, but you don’t have to.
At the end of the soak, use a toenail brush to scrub your nails gently.
When done right, soaking your feet will loosen the dry scales on your heels, toes, and balls and soften the thick, hardened layers of the skin, leaving you with soft, beautiful feet.
2) Wax your feet
Putting paraffin wax on your feet makes them feel soft and beautiful. How waxing works is that the heat of the wax makes the blood flow faster and opens up the skin’s pores. When your pores are open, your skin takes in more water.
A professional can wax your feet, or you can do it at home.
When doing it at home, you need to buy a paraffin wax bath. The purpose of the tub is to ensure the temperature of the wax never goes above 125 degrees Fahrenheit.
If you don’t want the complexities of mixing things, you should get paraffin wax kits that come with everything you need. When you have the kits, you don’t have to worry about breaking up a big wax block and melting it in a double boiler.
Once the wax bath has started to cool down, wrap your feet in a towel to keep the healing heat on for a while longer.
For the best outcome, use food-grade paraffin wax.
This is because other waxes contain additives, like stearic acid, coloring, and perfumes, that make the wax harder to melt and irritate the skin.
3) Remove the calluses
There is no way your feet will be pretty if they are covered in calluses, so you must remove them.
Doing this also stops cracks from forming.
While you should strive to remove all the calluses on your feet, you should be cautious and ensure that you don’t remove too much of them, as the skin could split if you put pressure on tissues that are too thin.
This not only hurts and makes you bleed but can also make you more likely to get an infection.
Remember that your goal is to remove dead skin cells, not healthy tissue.
The key to removing calluses safely is to be patient. If it’s been a while since your last pedicure, don’t try to eliminate calluses and corns all at once.
Instead, do the job in two or three treatments every four to six weeks.
4) Moisturize your feet
Moisturizing your feet helps the softened tissues absorb the emollients, leading to smoother, better-hydrated feet.
As you moisturize your feet, gently massage your feet and stretch the tendons in your toe joints and the arch of your feet. This is especially helpful if you have plantar fasciitis.
After applying lotion on your feet, wear socks or wrap them in plastic for an hour or two. This step, called occlusive therapy, helps the lotion soak in better, which comes in handy, especially if your feet are dry and flaky.
Got beautiful feet?

As you have seen, it’s not hard to have beautiful feet. And the cool thing is that you can make money by enrolling in a feet contest.
Feet that look good are also healthy, so besides pampering your feet to look good, also ensure that they are healthy by regularly visiting a podiatrist to look at them.
Some people think you need to have pain or structural problems with your feet to see a doctor, but this isn’t the case. You should make it a habit to see a foot doctor at least once a year.
The doctor will confirm that your feet are healthy and help you identify issues you might be having. The cool thing is that when you do this, the doctor identifies the problem in the early stages, making it easy to treat.
As a rule of thumb, ensure that the doctor you go to is an expert.
