The Perfect MAN-icure

I personally don’t know any woman that would turn down getting a pedicure if the opportunity presented itself. As for a man, that is a total different ball game. My husband won’t let anyone near his feet even if I convince him that the manliest of men go to the salon to get pedicures! So I finally talked him into allowing me to give him The Perfect MAN-icure. No, I don’t mean a manicure like you get on your hands, I mean a manly pedicure and today we are working with AmLactin to share just how to do it!

The Perfect MAN-icure

Before we get started, there a few DONT’S I want to share…

DON’T:

  • Fill the water with flowers
  • Listen to Taylor Swift while working on your man’s feet
  • Ask to paint your man’s toes with a metallic glitter that matches yours

I say these are don’ts because if your man is like mine and is already reluctant to pedicures, you may just make him never want one again (even if it’s from you).

Remember this pedicure is really to make our man feel manly and help him achieve pretty feet that smell good too!

Okay, we’ve gotten that over with so let’s talk about the MAN-icure.

What You Will Need for The Perfect MAN-icure:

  • A large bowl filled with warm water
  • Soap (I used shower gel)
  • Towel
  • Nail file
  • Nail clippers (in case the toenails need some trimming)
  • A bar of soap
  • A pumice stone
  • AmLactin Foot Cream

How to Give The Perfect MAN-icure:

  1. Fill your large bowl with warm water and set onto a flat surface.
  2. Have your man place his feet inside the bowl.
  3. Add your soap or shower gel and give the bowl a good mixing. Have your man soak his feet for about 15 minutes.
  4. Remove one foot from the water and scrub with a good pumice stone to remove any dead skin and rough spots. Repeat with the other foot.
  5. Use the nail file inside the nail clippers to remove any dirt from under the nails. You can also use this time to clip and trim nails if needed.
  6. Wash feet with the bar of soap. This will help get rid of bacteria lurking around.
  7. Rinse and then remove feet from the water and dry.
  8. Use a nail file to smooth out any sharp edges and straighten the toe nails.
  9. Finish off the pedicure, excuse me, MAN-icure with the AmLactin Foot Cream. It gives a smooth finish and moisturizes feet all day long.

You can even see just how we did it by watching the video below!

As I mentioned earlier not all men enjoy a spa day getting a professional pedicure but one thing we can all agree on is that men’s feet could use a little more TLC. Whether your man spends his days in sports shoes, dress shoes, or even boots, he needs to let his feet breathe and experience life as we know it.

The problem is, feet can be an eye sore if they aren’t properly maintained and taken care of. That is where us ladies come in. We can just let our men be men but also help them have good looking feet too. They don’t need to become a foot model or anything, just have toes that are flip-flop worthy.the perfect man-icure featured

Personally, I think a good foot cream goes a long way in achieving pretty feet. I recently gave the AmLactin Foot Cream a try and really liked it. It’s a cream that helps exfoliate, heal, and moisturize skin. Plus, it’s fragrance-free! So cracked, rough, and dry feet can really be a thing of the past. Perfect for spring and summer which will be here before we know it!
