Steps to do chocolate pedicure:
- Start by prepping your feet and nails first. You can begin your pedicure by removing the existing nail paint, cutting your nails and giving them a desired shape. Once done, you can move on to the next step - a warm soak.
- For this step, you need to take a bucket filled with warm water. The water should be warm enough for your to soak your feet in it. Add some epsom salt in the water and soak your feet in it for good 10-15 minutes.
- Next, take a wide bowl, add melted chocolate in it and mix it with some milk until it forms a thick, creamy paste. Soak your feet in the mixture and let it relax. Let your feet soak in the goodness of chocolate for at least 20 minutes before you proceed to wash your feet and pat it dry with a towel.
- Once you have given your feet a nice and warm chocolate soak, proceed to the scrubbing part. Here, you need to make a quick homemade chocolate-sugar scrub that will soften your feet and remove dead skin cells. To make a homemade scrub, you need to mix 2 tablespoons of sugar, 1 tablespoon of honey with 4 tablespoons of melted chocolate in a small bowl. Now, take a generous amount of the mixture on your hands and scrub your feet with it for at least 5-10 minutes. Once done, wipe your feet with a wet tissue or wash it with cold water and pat it dry with a clean towel.
- Lastly, you need to apply a soothing moisturiser to your feet and massage for about 2 minutes until the moisturiser seeps into your skin. Then, pick a nail paint of your choice and give your nails a colourful twist. If you are good at doing nail art, you can feel free to give your nails a stylish makeover and you are done.
