Paraffin wax pedicure

Most of us ignore our feet but they are the most used part of our body in our whole life time. It is important to take care of our feet as it is important to take care of our other parts of the body. Well groomed feet add to your personality. If you are in those who neither have the time or enthusiasm to go to the parlor and take luxury treatment for your feet then paraffin wax pedicure is best for you. This treatment suits those who have to go outside long and they prefer to have regular pedicure too.

Few things which you must do for your feet are:-
1. Keep your feet moisturized. Apply moisturizer after you have bath on your toes ,and nails. If possible apply moisturizer before going to sleep as well.

2. If you are a women who likes to remain in shoes most of the time then apply nail polish on your nails. This reduces the possibility of your nail to break down and they remain long and strong as well.

3. If you suffer from excess sweat during summer then put anti fungus powder before wearing any sandals or shoes.

4. Scrub your feet once or twice a week.
