4 Great Pedicure Products Under $10
Let’s face it, many of us neglect our feet. No one blames you for avoiding the pedicure salon so you can save the $30+ of a pedicure, but you’re not off the hook for taking care of your feet! We’ve got some low cost pedicure products you can keep on hand to take of your poor, weary feet.
1 – Pumice Stone $2-3/each
Pumice stones are great at fighting calluses and dead skin, and if you’ve ever had a pedicure, you’ve probably seen one in use. Just soak your feet, soak your pumice stone, and start gently scrubbing. Be careful, though, if you have diabetes, poor circulation, or any condition that means you cannot feel your feet well. It’s better to just do a short, gentle scrub a few times a week to keep your feet exfoliated and feeling great. Be sure to sanitize and regularly replace your stones, they are collecting grime from your feet, after all.
2 – Foot Soak/Epsom Salts $6
There are lots of fancy products out there, but Epsom salts work great on a budget. Just find something designed to soak your feet in hot water. This is cleansing, softens up calluses for a good scrub, and can soften tough-to-cut nails for easier trimming. Be sure to thoroughly dry your feet before putting on your socks and shoes.
3 – Foot Cream $8
How about fighting those calluses and stubborn dry spots before they start? Most foot specific creams, salves, and lotions are made to be deep penetrating moisturizers for your feet. Find one with ingredients that make sense to you and try it. Or you can always try some simple shea butter to get the job done.
4 – Toenail Clippers $6
No, your fingernail clippers will not do! Opt for bigger size toenail specific clippers to ensure smooth long cuts. Always beware clipping too short and causing ingrown toenails (ouch!) and always sanitize your clippers after every use.
