I love pedicure sessions, I feel like a princess where my feet are being cleaned and massaged while I blissfully either enjoy my book or music. There is a BUT to this statement and the but is I hate to wait and feel as if time is slipping away , performing this feet pampering once a month is good and I wouldn't be bothered for a couple of minutes waiting time .The real issue arises when I want to do this routine more than once a month and the time at the salon makes my heart pinch and feel guilty thinking what all I could do instead of sitting here. So to beat that guilt I like to do my pedicure renewal at home, here is how it is done.
- Put on some relaxing music and lite up aromatic candles
Essentials for DIY pedicure renewal

- Scrub the hard dead skin with the help of a pumice stone
- usually if you are doing this routine as a renewal to your pedicure session, you are most likely not to have any dead skin at this time hence, and you can straight away go to the next step.
LUSH Volcano Foot Mask - it really lives up to it's name
- Wash your feet, pat dry and then wait for the best part apply the volcano foot mask from LUSH, all you need to do is apply a thick coat on all your feet and then wrap your feet in a plastic.
- Leave it on for 10 mins, rinse it off by rubbing it near the dead skin, this product is miraculous, you will feel your feet super good after washing it.
- Follow by applying a good foot cream, I use Botanics from boots.
