How does it work?

Perfect for removing hard dead skin cells from your feet and keep your toenails in clean working order, a pedicure can be performed on both dry or wet feet, though for a more luxurious experience most opt for a wet pedicure, where both of your feet are submerged in hot soapy water to soften the skin and cuticle area. Like most treatments, methods can vary from place to place, but the result should always be touchably soft feet, with all dead and dry skin removed from the foot.

What to expect?

Your style of pedicure is dependant on the salon you choose, so if you want your treatment to go the extra mile be sure to do your research first. From luxurious massaging water jets to a simple hot foot bath, there's a host of different pedicures you can take your pick from. Once your feet have been fully soaked for a few minutes, your therapist will use a hard pumice stone or buffer file to remove hardened skin from the heels and balls of your feet, and then use a cuticle clipper to banish all other dry areas around your toes and cuticles. After this, your toenails will be trimmed and filed to perfection, followed by (in most cases) a relaxing exfoliation treatment to ensure your skin is next level smooth and fresh. The last stage before polish is usually a soothing cream that's massaged into your feet to keep them soft and hydrated for days to come. After this, polish and top coat is applied, then all that’s left for you to do is wait patiently for them to dry!

Good to know

If you’re looking for something a little more thorough, or want to get to the root of a recurring foot issue then a medical pedicure is a great way to get your feet back on track. Slightly less relaxing than your luxury pedicure, but brilliant for the overall health of your feet, a trained podiatrist will set you on a treatment regime, helping to banish unsightly nails and get your feet summer-ready in no time.

So regardless of whether you’re going in for a lick of colour and a massage, or need something a little more hardwearing, getting a professional pedi is guaranteed to leave you looking down at your feet admiringly for days to come, and put a serious spring in your step while you’re at it!
