Who needs the salon when you can get professional results at home? Save time and money by mastering DIY pedicures that make dry, cracked heels look and feel silky again. Here’s a quick rundown of everything you need to get flawless feet.


DIY Pedicures for Dry and Cracked Heels


1. Smooth Things Over


Your first step in a DIY pedicure is to remove dead skin. The Tweezerman Sole Mates Foot File + Smoother is a great tool that does it all.

One side of this oval removes calluses and rough dead skin, and then the other side buffs your skin to a smooth finish. While it's a tough and gritty process, filing your feet will make them ready to absorb moisture and nutrients so they can start healing.


2. Soak Your Feet


The best part of any spa experience, the foot soak is essential. Many top spas use OPI Pedicure Soak, and now you can buy it for at-home pedicures.

Infused with tea tree oil, grapefruit extract, and OPI’s world-famous avocado lipid complex, Pedicure Soak is like heaven in a bottle. Soak your feet until the water goes cold, and feel free to repeat as many times as you like!

3. Massage Your Feet


Keep the blissful at-home spa experience going with OPI Pedicure Massage. Loaded with soothing botanical extracts, antioxidants, and even more avocado lipid complex, this cream will make your feet feel amazing. Work slowly as you massage every inch of your feet to get them feeling hydrated and refreshed.


4. Heal Your Heels


Dry and cracked heels need special attention. Although a salon may not give your heels any more TLC than the rest of your feet, you can give these extra-rough parts the VIP treatment at home.

You need to treat the skin on your heels differently from other foot and body skin. While normal foot creams are fine for soles, insteps, and toes, you need something more to deal with rough heels.

We love Hand Chemistry Heel Hydration Complex because it has something that no other heel cream has. This wonder product is made with 19.5% actives, which repair dry and cracked surfaces while rebalancing the skin below.

Many products peel away hard skin to reveal the skin underneath. However, this new skin is still too young and delicate to be bared, so the result is instant irritation. Heel Hydration Complex breaks this cycle and creates a perfect balance.

BONUS TIP: Feeling worn out? Grab an energising leg cream. It will perk up tired legs and make you feel ready to take on the world. We love Clarins Energising Leg Emulsion for Tired Legs.
