During a basic or "regular" pedicure, your feet are soaked in a water and antifungal solution to soften dead skin, followed by filing, clipping, moisturizing, and nail polish application.
Salt pedicures use salt and rocks to scrub away dead skin cells, leaving feet soft and smooth. The process includes soaking, scrubbing, and moisturizing.
For extra pampering, try a paraffin pedicure. This type is great for dry or inflamed feet, as the paraffin mixture hydrates and softens skin. The process involves dipping feet into the mixture for 15-30 minutes and then applying a hydrating cream.
For a moisturizing pedicure, try a milk and honey foot bath. Soak feet in hot water, then in milk and honey for 5 minutes, followed by a honey mask and scrub. Some salons may also offer a paraffin wax treatment for extra hydration.
Fish pedicures are a unique way to treat dry feet. Harmless fish nibble away dead skin cells in a water tank, followed by dead skin removal and moisturization. It's not widely available, but worth trying.
Get a pedicure for dry, cracked feet every 1-2 weeks to avoid skin irritation. Use foot scrubs and moisturize with therapy socks to keep feet hydrated.
Using Vaseline and hydration socks is highly recommended for dry and cracked feet. Apply Vaseline to your feet after showering, put on socks for the night, and repeat for long-term results.
