We are faced with the dawning reality that it is going to be quite a while before we will be able to leave our homes for a salon professional pedicure. As we move from Winter and Spring past March into April and beyond our feet are even showing the signs of neglect, but it needn’t stay that way.
It is time to become resourceful and self-sufficient and the good news is that we can show you how to do a great pedicure at home, so good you may think twice before going back to the beauty salon for a pedicure ever again.
Managing to perform a first-class pedicure at home is simply down to using the right products in the right way and you really can achieve professional treatment results at home if you get this right. You’ll be amazed at the results that we, the Foot Experts, can show you.

Once you’ve gathered your essentials, you’re ready to start your pedicure!
Step 1: The Expert Way to Remove Hard Skin
All the foot creams in the world won’t work if you leave the hard, dry skin in place so the first step is to use the Margaret Dabbs London Professional Foot File. It really is the Rolls Royce of foot files and lasts a lifetime. Not only does it remove all the hard, dead, dry skin easily, but it will also leave the skin even and smooth to the touch. You can also use it to safely take off corns and hard skin from your toes including the ridge of skin that builds up under the little toe!
Foot filing should always be done on dry skin – no exceptions – wet skin masks the areas to be treated, weakens the tissues, makes the skin more prone to infection and the file won’t adhere as well, meaning the skin isn’t removed effectively and results aren’t as long-lasting.
If you want to give yourself salon groomed nails, use the Crystal Nail File to file the nails straight across so that they look professionally finished.
Step 2: Scrub Feet To Perfection & Bring Skin Back To Life
Don’t underestimate the benefit of using a foot scrub to bring dull, dry skin back to life and reach the areas that the file can’t touch. Use a very small amount of the Exfoliating Foot Mousse on your wet hands, rub it all over the foot, concentrating on the heels and ball of the foot, and then take it in-between the toes, and to the top of the foot and all over the nails before rinsing off with warm water. As soon as you use it you will see a visible difference. The skin will look brand new and appear refreshed and replenished! It will also help to keep away the symptoms of Athlete’s Foot.
Step 3: Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate
Finish with the Intensive Hydrating Foot Lotion. This is my favourite product and is formulated to reduce hard skin build-up and to keep the skin soft. The skin on the feet is 12 times thicker than the rest of the body so it’s so important to use a dedicated foot lotion as regular body moisturisers simply won’t work. Don’t forget that this is your daily foot product – Use it every day to get feet that look and feel brand new and give that walking on air experience. Apply all over the feet and very, very slowly massage it all over increasing the speed of the movement as you reach the ankle – take this time to relax your mind and unwind.
Love Your New Feet!
This whole treatment is so easy to follow at home and will give you feet which look brand new and make you feel like you are walking on air. Use the foot lotion every day to recreate that feeling and to stop the hard skin building up again and use the foot file, and scrub once or twice a week. You’ll be amazed at the results and you will have feet you can reveal and show off at any time.
