• At Home Pedicure with Freeman

    When it comes to doing pedicures at home I always buy Freeman Bare Foot products.  Not only are they affordable but they don't test their products on animals.
    Peppermint and Plum Foot Soak
    As the name suggests this is an uplifting, fruity gel foot soak.  My favourite colour is purple so I was thrilled with the purple colour of the gel - even though it doesn't colour the water at all.  The foot soak is infused with peppermint and plum extracts that help soften your skin in preparation for exfoliation.  I always love the foot soak part of a pedicure because it is so relaxing.  After 5 minutes in the warm water my feet were already feeling soft and refreshed.  What is particularly great about this product is that you can use it in a foot spa as well - a big plus for those who have foot spas at home.

    Lemon and Sage Foot Scrub
    When I was at Dischem stocking up on my pedicure essentials they only had this scent of foot scrub.  I generally don't mix the fragrances of products but I was actually glad that I got this.  The exfolianting cream is thick and full of abrasive particles.  A little bit of the cream gives you a good scrub for your feet.  The scrub is infused with lemon, sage and tea tree oils which all help to soothe and invigorate feet.

    Peppermint and Plum Heel and Callus balm
    This is a thick, rich balm with shea butter and extracts of plum and peppermint.  These ingredients help moisturise dry skin.  The balm absorbs well into warm skin and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth.  After repeated use the overall condition of your heels and calluses will improve.

    My Pedicure Tips:
    • Start with clean feet - yes you sit in foot soak for a while but that alone will not ensure your feet are clean.  Give your feet a quick wash and then soak your feet.
    • Buy a good quality foot file - it doesn't necessarily have to be an expensive one but it must have a good abrasive edge.  The Body Shop makes really great ones for R55.
    • After exfoliating your feet and washing them off with warm water, pat dry your feet in a towel and keep your feet covered in the towel for a while.  This will keep your feet warm until you are ready to apply the foot balm.
    • After you apply heel balm out your feet into a pair of moisture socks.  In all honesty, a pair of normal socks works equally as well.  The aim is to keep your feet warm to allow the balm to absorb better into your skin.
    • Make a pedicure part of your skin care routine.  Incorporate it into your facial routine.  While you have your face mask on you can easily do a pedicure.  Even if it is only a soak, scrub and balm treatment.
    Big Hugs,
    Charlene XXX

    1. I have been loving Freeman's products lately, but I haven't tried the foot products yet. I'm definitely going to get the heel and callus balm for winter.
