Wedding diaries – Taking care of your Feet (DIY Pedicure)

A bride looks glowy and beautiful only when full care is given to her legs, hands, face and hair. You have to look most beautiful and flawless on your wedding day and for that you need to start early to nourish your skin and hair.Today I am writing about how to do these beauty treatments and pamper yourself? And you should indulge in these beauty treatments at least two months prior your wedding. 

Let’s see how –
Happy Feet
In India, there are many traditions where people will notice your feet. May it be during Grih Pravesh, where the bride has to push a utensil full of cereals by her right feet or where she has to put her feet in a plate full of red colour to enter the house. People are definitely going to notice your feet during these customs and your feet should look beautiful and attractive. So better go for regular pedicures and massage your feet regularly with some good oil.
If you are too lazy to go out everytime or if your are working and short of time, atleast do it yourself at home.
DIY Pedicure :

What you need:
  • ½ tub lukewarm water
  • Shampoo
  • Foot scrub
  • Salt
  • Pumic stone
  • Old toothbrush

How to do it:
Take ½ tub lukewarm water and add enough shampoo to it.

Now add at least 2 tsp salt and dip your legs. 

Just relax for atleast 10  mins. Now scrub your feet to remove all the dead skin.

Again dip in water and now take pumic stone and rub on your legs with light hand and clean your nails and inner corners of nails with toothbrush. Your legs will become smooth, soft and relaxed.  It will increase blood circulation, reduce tiredness and your feet will smell so good.

Now wash your feet with fresh water and towel dry. After drying massage your feet with a nice foot cream or some good oil. And here you are with those attractive, clean and smoother feet.
Special tip: Make a mixture of lemon, glycerin and rose water and put it in refrigerator. Use this 2 times daily. This will not only make your hands and feet soft but will also lighten up the complexion. You can use this tonic in any season and any time. You see, all time magic!! 😉
I have noticed that many girls go for pedicures only one week prior their wedding and neglect their feet completely before that. This is not to be done.

Don’t think that applying creams and lotions 2 times a day will make your feet look beautiful in a week. Sorry darling no magic here. So start 2 months in advance.

  18. Even if its not the big day, its nice to keep the feet nice and beautiful. I sometimes neglect mine due to time factor. After seeing this post, I have to start again.

  19. Thanks for all the tips 🙂 I'm definitely guilty of prepping my feet too late for an event. I actually do my pedicure only the night before! & it's so cool to learn about all the Indian traditions involving feet. I don't really have anything similar in my culture. Thanks for sharing again 🙂
