With the weather warming up it’s time to get flip-flop ready, Rhianna Prentice from The Beauty Rooms explains.

 

Taking care of your feet is so important; with all the hard work they go through every day it is essential to give them a treat once in a while – they’ll be sure to thank you later in life.

 

Beauty products and treatments are always changing but one treatment that remains consistent are pedicures. Having a regular pedicure is not only cosmetic it is also very relaxing too. Perfect for both men and women, you will be giving your feet the treatment they deserve. During a pedicure you’ll have callus removal, exfoliation, cuticle work, nails clipped and a foot massage then finish with creams to help soften and leave your feet feeling super smooth.

 

If you are in need of a quick fix and have limited time there’s a fantastic new treatment available called The Callus Peel. This treatment uses a safe AHA acid which helps to soften and break down hard, stubborn skin. It is left on the feet for around 5-10 minutes then removed using a flat tool. The results are amazing, you won’t believe how soft your feet are afterwards!

 

The perfect final touch when having a foot treatment is nail colour for the ladies. I love the summer months when you can choose from all those bright, beautiful corals, pinks and blues – it makes your toes look fresh and fabulous.

 

I am a big fan of having gel nails, they’re brilliant if you are one to always smudge polish like me! Gels dry instantly with the use of an LED lamp, giving them a high gloss shine and smooth finish – there is nothing not to like. They are safe yet natural, allowing products to still penetrate through to the nail plate to keep them hydrated. We have recently just introduced a new product in the salon from Jessica Nails called Phenom. It’s a nail polish that dries completely in five minutes from natural UV light, perfect for ladies who don’t want to commit to having gels regularly but also don’t want to wait for ordinary polish to dry.

 

I recommend that you treat yourself to regular foot treatments around every 6-8 weeks, but advise that you look after them at home too. Here are my top tips on how to keep your feet flip-flop ready at home;

 

Use a foot file after a bath or shower

Invest in a good quality heel cream and use morning and night

Use a really good exfoliation product once a week

Clip toe nails regularly (after a bath or shower is always easier)

Apply a base coat when using nail polish at home to prevent staining the nail plate
