acid pedicure

A pedicure is as essential a part of personal care as a manicure or a beautiful hairstyle. And this is especially important in the summer. If in winter women sometimes neglect this procedure, then with the advent of summer, in the heat, it becomes more relevant than ever, since the feet are perfectly visible in open shoes. And if taking care of your nails is easy enough, then the rough skin of the heels can cause a lot of trouble. One way to tidy up the skin of the feet, without resorting to lengthy hardware treatment or a special razor, is an acid pedicure.

What is an acid pedicure?

Despite the fact that the word «acid» in the title may alert many, the acid pedicure procedure itself is very mild. When carrying out an acid pedicure, the coarsened areas of the skin of the feet are lubricated with a special cream containing special acids. After some time, with the help of tools, the cream is removed along with softened skin.

Acid for pedicure

The composition of pedicure products usually includes various fruit acids. Most often, it is glycolic (hydroxyacetic) acid, which belongs to the group of alpha hydroxy acids, and is found naturally in unripe grapes, beets, and sugar cane. Due to the small size of the molecules, it relatively easily penetrates the skin and breaks down keratinization and skin thickening. In addition to the fruit-acid composition, pedicure products also contain lactic acid. The latter is especially often used in preparations for topical application against corns and corns.

Acid pedicure at home

Acid pedicure can be carried out not only in the salon, but also at home, since a special peeling cream with acid can be purchased at a cosmetic store. The only thing that is important to remember is that acid pedicure should not be carried out on damaged skin, in the presence of scratches, cracks, fungal diseases of the feet and nails, as you can get an acid burn. The rest of the procedure is quite simple:

  1. Carefully inspect the legs and make sure that there is no damage to the skin.
  2. Apply disinfectant to your feet.
  3. Soak your feet in a warm bath for 3-5 minutes.
  4. Wipe your feet dry and reapply the disinfectant.
  5. Acid pedicure at home

  6. Apply a softener for rough skin. On particularly problematic areas, you can separately apply cotton pads soaked in a special solution.
  7. Wrap your feet in cling film for 8-10 minutes.
  8. Dry your feet with a napkin, and roll the softened skin with a special nail file on a wooden base.
  9. Grinding problem areas is best with a nail file with an abrasive coating or a pedicure machine.

After that, you can start applying varnish and nail design.
