Sinking into a pedicure chair is the ultimate act of pampering. When your clients suffer from foot problems such as corns, calluses, and cracked soles, a regular pedicure in your salon and a further treatment at home may prevent these problems. So, sit back, relax and discover our 5 tips for a perfect cosmetic pedicure after wich the client will surely walk on air when leaving the salon.
First, we like clean feet. A disinfecting spray is the right hygienic start for each pedicure. It disinfects the feet clearing them of any germs and the menthol fragrance brings a refreshing scent that has a cooling effect on feet. Next you can continue with hydrating Aloe Soak foot bath with aloe vera. It contains many skin softening and nourishing elements to both purify and care for feet. The eucalyptus-peppermint oil is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory.
Now that the nails are softened from the water, it’s time to whip the toenails in shape. But first pay special attention to the cuticles on each toe. With an effective cuticle remover, the cuticles will look clean and beautiful and it allows you to push back dried, rough, and overgrown cuticles. It will make a major difference in the shine, health, and the overall strength of your nails. While the product is doing its work, use a Nail Cutter to shorten the nails, then file the nails in shape. Now you can push back the cuticles with a cuticle pusher or use the nail machine to push back and clean the nail walls in an easy and fast way.
Then the harder work is there, getting rid of callus. A callus on the foot may become painful when you put pressure on it while walking in shoes or high heels. And yes, off course we like a pain free “Carrie Bradshaw” walk in those nice heels you just bought. So please remove the callus.
Removing the callus can be done by a Callus Off Spray in combination with filing. The spray removes the callus in an effective way and stimulates cell renewal due to the non-aggressive formula with urea & propylene. After spraying you can file off the callus with a foot file and then rinse the feet.
Time to relax now. The most enjoyable part of the salon pedicure is the massage. Massaging helps promote circulation and helps relieve tension in the calves and feet. We start the luxurious SPA with a Sugar Scrub to remove dead skin cells: work on dry skin for an intense effect or on wet skin for a softer effect. Then it’s massaging time with the massage balm or for a more luxurious SPA you can use the Vitamin Mask . Wrap the feet in Pedicure Wrapping Foil and allow the active ingredients to absorb deep in the epidermis. Leave it on for five to ten minutes and then start the massage. Massage the feet with dampened hands, to allow the gel structure to transform into a perfectly smooth massage balm.
Tip: No matter what massage technique you use, always sweep towards the heart.
The finishing touch finish the pedicure treatment with a Vitamin Cuticle Oil and massage the cuticles gently to nourish and hydrate them deeply. Or if the client wants a finishing touch with a colour? Then you can propose a Longwear Nail Polish, a semi-permanent Sopolish gel application that remains up to 3 weeks or BFLEX, our newest gel application for a natural look that remains 4 weeks.
Your client is set to walk on air without pain and with a relaxing feeling!
