How To Make Your Pedicure Last Longer This Summer

Ahhhh, summer. The perfect time to have smooth heels and a fresh coat of paint on your toes. Too bad it’s also the hardest time to maintain that lovely pedicure. All of the heat, sand, and dirt really do a number on our feet and if you’re anything like me, you can’t afford to pay for a pedicure every week (even as a spa owner!) So what can we do to make sure we get the most out of our pedicure?

Let’s take a look at a few easy ways to have our feet looking great for longer:

  1. Moisturize–I can’t say this enough, you need to moisturize every day. Not just your face, not just your hands, but everywhere, especially your feet. Think about all the hard work they do during the day and, if you wear flip flops or other open-toed shoes, all of the stuff they are exposed to. Take the time to the clean your feet and moisturize properly.
  2. Cuticle Oil–A little drop of cuticle oil goes a long way in saving your polish and making sure your nails are healthy and happy.
  3. Top Coat–Reapply your top coat every few days to prevent chipping, be sure to get at the very end of the nail to seal it.
  4. Cover Them Up–I know you won’t want to cover up your toes if you just spent good money on a pedicure, but exposure to the elements helps nails chip and break faster. Try wearing close-toed shoes to work and sandals afterward to encourage your pedicure to stick around longer.

Remember that the best way to maintain a pedicure is to have healthy feet. Our spa is meticulous when it comes to hygiene and safety and we have a certified medical nail technician on staff. Book Now or call 770-704-5614.
