How to Do a Pedicure


Some of the steps involved are: Removing polish from nails should be done with a lint-free cotton pad. Saturate the cotton on the nail and let it soak first. 
Note that rubbing Whitening toothpaste on one’s nails helps remove the polish faster. Lemon or lavender oil drops on each nail and rubbing a buffer back and forth over the nail also works. 2. Alcohol and acetone-free removers are less drying, but don’t apply on shades that appear dark. ‘Free’ stuff is used on lighter shades. Following the removal of polish from nails is clipping nails. Use quality clippers to cut straight across just above the skin the nail should not extend the tip of your toe. Files maybe used to achieve this.

Soaking one’s feet is the third step. Warm bath salted water and aromatherapy oils are used when soaking feet. Soak your feet for at least 10 minutes. Stay longer if your feet are cracked and callus. 
 
Add some milk to your bath along with essential oils and salts to loosen dead skin. Trim cuticles. Application of cuticle remover nail bases for a minute and using an orangewood stick, pushing with a circular motion removes dead skin on top of the nail allows you not to touch toe flesh. 
 
 Scrubbing your feet: Apply foot scrub to a foot file or wet pumice stone to remove dead skin on balls and heels of your feet. To remove dead skin around balls, bottoms and sides of your heels and the toes. 
Sit on the side of the bath tub to achieve a coverage position. Stop if your feet turn bright red for this means your feet have scrubbed too hard. Dry feet thoroughly between toes and rub in a thick foot cream. 
Rehydrate the cuticles in a dab of cuticle oil.

  • After the above step, polish your toes. Use acetone remover to remove excess oils on the nails. 
  • Apply a thin base coat using 3 strokes, one down, the middle, and one on each side. Don’t paint the cuticle. 
  • Wait for a minute. Add 2 favorable coats of polish. Finish with a thin top coat. 
  • Clean any errors with an orangewood stick wrapped in cotton and dipped in acetone remover. Let the nails to dry for 40 minutes. 
  • To prevent chipping, paint any polish remaining on the brush over the front edges of the nails. 
  • Finally finish up, after the nails have died. Sprits with a moisturizing oil to set your polish and moisturize your cuticles. 
  • This will give you a good pedicure.

Breast Enhancement Technique Naturally


What is natural Breast Enhancement Technique ?

 
   Many women would like to know of alternatives to costly and risky breast enhancement techniques. 
There are some viable options in the market today and women who have tried them have got positive results. Although there is no research to prove that you could naturally grow your breasts, there are a few natural breast enhancement techniques  which give good results with no risk and expense.
 
    There are several ways in which you increase your breasts naturally. 
The use of herbs is the most common and tested method over the years.
Other methods include suction pumps, hypnosis, self-hypnosis, and different massage techniques. These are collectively known as natural breast enhancement techniques.

Here are a few natural ways to grow breasts:

  •     Consume lots of fresh vegetables and fruits. This will not only help you in developing breasts but also take care of your entire body. Include black olives, virgin olive oil, soya eggs, grains and grain oil, roasted peanuts, and sunflower seeds in your daily diet for at least six months.
  •     Some plants have proven to be very effective in breast enhancement such as dill seeds, liquorice root, basil flowers, and anise seeds. Crush these seeds with a crusher and mix them in equal parts. Consume this three times a day before meals. Keep the mixture under the tongue for fifteen minutes and swallow it with water.
  •    Massage the breasts with the proper technique. You can also use medicinal oils for massage. Use wheatgerm oil and dill oil in moderate quantities and apply it three times a day. Use a greater quantity only if the skin cannot absorb all the oil. Light and moderate breast massage everyday 15 minutes before sleeping is also the best way to stimulate breast growth.
  •     When a woman makes love, the hormonal level increases in her body, which will then help in breast enhancement. Research has proven that those women who have sexual intercourse and reach orgasm develop beautiful and naturally enlarged breasts.
  •     Try and avoid consuming caffeinated drinks such as coffee, caffeinated sodas, colas, teas, and chocolate. Caffeinated products are diuretic in nature and they counteract the natural breast enhancement techniques. Thus, it is good to avoid these drinks for a while completely.
  •     Eat a proper balanced diet, exercise regularly, reduce your stress levels, and maintain your blood sugar levels. This will help you maintain your hormonal balance and aid in breast growth.
  •     You could also take oral breast enhancement supplements.  Take these tablets in addition to consuming a protein rich diet or protein shakes.  Take these supplements carefully, following all the instructions mentioned on the box.
Although results vary from person to person, you should follow these natural techniques religiously for at least six months for better growth.
