3. Moisturize your feet
While it’s essential to moisturize your feet each day, when it comes to a French pedicure you need to consider this step too. If you don’t have a special foot cream or moisturizer, don’t worry, you can slather your feet with coconut oil or your favorite heavy duty moisturizer. Your feet will feel much better once they are hydrated. Give the lotion some time to soak in before moving on to the next step. This is the perfect time to give yourself a foot massage.
How to give yourself a foot massage:
Start with your soles of your feet. Use your thumbs to knead them in a circular motion. It helps relax and loosen the tight muscles. You can also use a golf ball or a massage ball to massage your soles. Now it’s time to stretch your toes. Gently pull each toe back and forth to stretch it out and relieve soreness and tightness.
While a foot massage is not absolutely necessary, especially if you don’t have a lot of free time, it’s a sweet little way to pamper yourself. Foot massage has been practiced for centuries and it has plenty of wonderful benefits. It has been shown to help reduce tension, manage pain, boost circulation, and stimulate the muscles.
