Happy Feet: The Ultimate Guide to Foot Care and Pedicures


Hello fabulous friends!

As the summer sun invites us to wear our favourite sandals and flip-flops, it's time to show some love to our feet. At London, we believe in the power of pampering from head to toe, and today, we're focusing on the fabulous benefits of pedicures and foot care. Let’s dive in!

Why Foot Care Matters

Our feet work hard every day, and it’s easy to take them for granted until they start to hurt. From blisters to bunions, there are many common foot conditions that can cause discomfort. Regular foot care can help prevent and manage these issues, ensuring your feet stay happy and healthy.

Common Foot Conditions

When we don't take care of our feet, as with other areas of our body, they can become painful with skin and bone issues that make it uncomfortable to walk. Here are some of the most common ones you may be experiencing and how to relieve them:

Blisters on Heels


  • Causes: Friction and pressure, often from ill-fitting shoes.

  • Relief: Keep the blister clean and cover it with a sterile bandage. Avoid popping it to prevent infection. Wear comfortable, well-fitting shoes and moisture-wicking socks to reduce friction.

Callus on Foot

Corns and Calluses:

  • Causes: Thickened areas of skin resulting from pressure or friction, often due to poorly fitting shoes or frequent walking.

  • Relief: Soak your feet in warm water to soften the skin, then gently file the area with a pumice stone. Apply moisturising cream to keep the skin soft. Use cushioned pads or insoles in your shoes to reduce pressure.



  • Causes: Bony bumps that form at the joint at the base of the big toe, often caused by improper footwear or genetic factors.

  • Relief: Wear shoes with a wide toe box to reduce pressure on the bunion. Use bunion pads to cushion the area. Ice the bunion to reduce swelling and pain. In severe cases, consult a podiatrist for possible surgical options.

Cracked Heel Hard Skin on Foot

  • Hard Skin:

  • Causes: Often found on heels and the balls of feet, this can lead to cracks and discomfort due to pressure and friction.

  • Relief: Regularly exfoliate your feet using a foot scrub or pumice stone. Keep your feet moisturised with a rich foot cream, especially after exfoliating. Wear supportive shoes that fit well to minimise friction.

The Benefits of Regular Pedicures

A pedicure is more than just a beauty treatment; it’s essential for maintaining healthy feet. Here’s how regular pedicures at London can benefit you:

  • Exfoliation: Removing dead skin cells to reveal softer, smoother skin.

  • Moisturization: Deep hydration to keep your skin supple and prevent cracks.

  • Nail Health: Trimming and shaping nails to prevent ingrown nails and infections.

  • Relaxation: A soothing experience that reduces stress and improves overall well-being.

Foot Massage: The Ultimate Relaxation

At London, our pedicures include luxurious foot massages that not only feel incredible but also offer numerous health benefits:

  • Improved Circulation: Massaging your feet stimulates blood flow, which is essential for healthy tissues.

  • Pain Relief: Relieving tension and reducing pain in your feet and legs.

  • Detoxification: Encouraging lymphatic drainage to help eliminate toxins from your body.
