SUMMER PEDICURE TIPS!

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017

Beach days, BBQ, and bikinis are almost here, so its time to start preparing for the warm summer ahead. Celebrity manicurist, Skyy Hadley, shares her secrets to giving your feet a summer makeover!

Find Your Color — Discover which shades work best on fair, medium and dark complexions.  According to Hadley, fair skin should choose white and blue undertones, while medium skin finds colors with  pink undertones.  Darker complexions should go for transparent tones.

To Cut or Not To Cut — “Trimming or cutting cuticles during a manicure is purely cosmetic and sometimes doesn’t benefit the nail in any way,” shares Hadley. The cuticle is the barrier to protect the surrounding skin and help develop the nail from bacteria and infections.

No More Yellow — The most common suggestion would be to stop using so much dark nail polish. “Of course we all love using dark colors but this may cause your nails to become discolored,” explains Hadley.  She recommends always using a base coat. “By using a base coat, you’re adding in a protective layer between your nails and the polish. This will also help to prevent staining and can actually help keep your nails healthier.”

Foot ScrubFall is synonymous with pumpkin season!  As we welcome delicious, seasonal desserts, we also look to its beauty benefits.  According to celebrity manicurist, Skyy Hadley, of As U Wish Nail Salon, pumpkins are rich in vitamins and nutrients, and “can do wonders for your feet” because they contain enzymes that help nourish and brighten the skin.   For a DIY foot treat, Hadley shares the following recipe:

Ingredients:
1 can pureed pumpkin      2 tablespoons honey
1 cup plain yogurt              1/4 teaspoon olive oil
½ cup raw sugar

Directions:  Mix pureed pumpkin in a bowl. Stir in yogurt, honey, sugar, and olive oil. Wash feet in warm water, and while moist, apply the scrub in a circular motion. Massage the mask onto each foot and let sit for 10 minutes.  Remove with warm water and a washcloth.
