Step 2: Soak your feet
Just because you aren't visiting a salon doesn't mean you don't get to enjoy a bit of R&R! Even with an at-home pedi, your feet should get to soak. "Put a bath towel down under the warm footbath and drop those tired feet in," says Morello-Zappacosta. You can optionally add your favorite aromatherapy oil, Epsom salts, tea tree oil, etc. for added cleansing and fragrance. As your feet soak in the dishpan (or, if you're feeling pro, a foot bath) for five to ten minutes, your skin will be cleaned and softened, which is essential for the upcoming exfoliation. Don't forget to put on your favorite music and relax!
