Foot Care Tips from Models Direct
Summer may be on its last legs and our sandals may be going into their annual hibernation, but Models Direct know that’s no reason not to keep your feet looking and feeling great. Professionals in the female modelling business are always looking for well-groomed talent so don’t let your feet let you down. Our feet have a quarter of the blood vessels in our bodies. They are one of the most sensitive areas and are easily forgotten about during daily care. Here are a few steps on how to give yourself the best pedicure.
Firstly trim and shape your nails. Remove your old nail polish with a nail polish remover and trim your nails neatly. Make sure you cut straight across and don't cut the corners too much, as this can lead to painful ingrown nails. Use a nail file to give them the desired shape.
Run a little foot bath in a basin or tub. Fill warm water enough to cover up to your ankles and add some bath salts. You can add a few drops of any essential oil of your choice. Give your feet a nice bathe. Also add a few smooth pebbles to the water. These will provide a gentle massage as you place your feet on them. Soak your feet and relax.
You're almost ready for your next modelling casting. Now you have to exfoliate. Rub some cuticle cream on the base of each toe nail. Leave it for a few minutes. In the meanwhile, use a foot scrub or exfoliating stone and remove all the dry and dead skin cells. Be firm but do not scrape too hard. Next, wipe off the cuticle cream and push back the cuticles gently with a cuticle pusher.
