10 Salon Beauty Treatments You Should Never Try at Home


8. Pedicures

Most of the time your toenails and feet are hidden under shoes and boots but they deserve as much attention as your face, hair and nails. The whole point of a pedicure is to pamper yourself and you simply can’t when you do one yourself. You won’t cause any harm with a DIY pedicure, but you probably won’t receive much benefit either.

Beyond painting your toenails and moisturizing your feet, pedicures are best left to a third party. I think almost every woman can afford to get her pedicure done in a beauty salon. It might seem like a waste of money to you, but there’s nothing wrong in pampering yourself every now and then.

The benefits of a professional pedicure will last for several weeks. I get my nail done once a month and I think it’s worth the money. I have very weak nails and terrible heel calluses.

Despite using creams and moisturizers I can never get my feet as smooth as a professional can. A professional pedicure takes about 40 minutes, which gives the time to sit back and relax.
