How do unedged pedicure at home?
If you want to treat yourself, you can make this pedicure in the salon. If there is no financial ability, do it at home; this procedure requires no special skills.
First you need to remove the old nail polish, if there is any. It is advisable to use a liquid without acetone; it does not thin and does not damage the nail plate. Do not strip off the polish with scoop or a nail file!
After removing the nail polish, apply on your nails a special tool to remove the cuticle. It specifically acts on the dead skin cells that are around the nail and gently dissolves them. This tool is a great alternative to scissors that can injure living skin.
When the cuticles are soft, you need a wooden scoop to push them. During any operation with nails you need to use scoops of wood instead of metal. Even sterile steel tool can damage the nail or the skin and cause inflammation.
It is necessary to polish the nails with special nail file. Choose polishing nail file with a fine grain; it gives nails a healthy glow without damaging them.
Then the edge of the nail is processed. To do this, take the diamond nail file and file away plate to the desired length. You cannot file away regrown nail completely; you should leave 2-3 mm. It is not only beautiful, but also safe –as a nail will not grow into the skin.
After that you need to treat your skin. First, it is applied to a nourishing cream; if there is no special, normal one for hands or face will be suitable. The main thing is not to spare the cream and apply it thickly. To it infiltrated the skin well the feet are wrapped in plastic film or foil and left for half an hour. Then you need a pumice stone to process the entire foot, paying attention to problem areas – heels, corns. Metal scrapers-graters are allowed to use. But here we must proceed with caution – one the movement can damage the already living skin. Then the nails should be wiped with alcohol and covered with polish.
