3 DIY Foot Soaks To Indulge In When You’re In Dire Need Of A Pedicure


Thanks to our year and a half long isolation, it feels like we visited salons in some previous lifetime. Our self-cut bangs have grown out to an unflattering length and our nail beds are ridden with dead skin. If you can relate hard, it’s time to convert your room into a salon and pamper yourself to the fullest.

The best and most relaxing way to do this is by making your own foot soak at home and dipping your legs in for an hour. Pick out your fav book or play that podcast that you’ve been meaning to listen to and just sink into your sofa cause these are budget-friendly and calming.
