Treat Your Feet

Written on July 7, 2011 at 10:43 am , by

It’s 90+ degrees here in New York City, but we recently got to treat our pavement-weary feet to the cool new Ice Cream Pedicure at Eve Salon in the West Village. Here’s a DIY at-home version of the sweet (calorie-free!) service:

  • Draw a warm basin of water with enough room for your feet.
  • Stir with your hand and dissolve, then place feet in the warm basin and soak for approximately 10 minutes.
  • Next, use a pumice stone to get rid of stubborn calluses on the bottoms of your feet and heels.
  • Stop, relax, and enjoy a scoop or two of your favorite flavored ice cream before proceeding!
  • Dry off and apply a few pumps of light lotion (try a vanilla scent) to keep feet and calves silky-smooth and hydrated.
  • Cut and file nails as desired, then top off with a summer polish (try experimenting with five shades of your favorite color—one on each toe—in order from darkest to lightest for an of-the-moment ombré effect.) Finish with a clear topcoat.
