Beauty From The Inside Out:
3 Ways To Make That Pedicure Even More Pleasant!


Do you like going to the local nail salon for a pedicure? I have sort of a love/hate relationship with it myself. See, I hate other people touching my feet because they’re really ticklish; but I love it when my feet look like I just left the salon. It’s funny because when I’m in the pedicure chair, I’m always rather envious of other women who can just sit there reading their phone while the nail technician scrubs the bottoms of their feet with that purple scrubby thing . . . you know the one, right? They don’t even flinch! NOT fair.

After many years of this dilemma I face, I’ve finally figured out my happy balance where I do just a few things at home that make my pedicure visits a bit easier on the tickles.


2. Sand Your Own Calluses

I told you earlier about my phobia with the "purple scrubby thing" so I decided that I'd do that particular job myself at home.

You don't have to buy one of those fancy foot-shaped sanders either. I bought a plain old gray pumice stone from the hardware store for $2. That's right, and it does the same job for a whole lot less money.

I like to leave some of the callus on my heals because I walk around a lot. If your heels are as smooth as a baby's tush, you're more likely to get blisters and I'm definitely not interested in those! I used to ask the nail technician doing my pedicures years ago to leave most of the callus there and all I got in return was the side eye and no callus.

Never mind the fact that I was practically stuck to the ceiling from the tickling.
