How to do Fruit Pedicure at Home

Fruity Pedicure

Things you need:

  • One lemon cut into two halves
  • Two slices of orange
  • 6-8 Strawberries
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • Half a bucket of warm water (maximum warmth you can withstand)
  • Bubble bath soap or shampoo
  • 1-2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Sugar
  • A pumice stone or a descent foot filer
  • A nail filer
  • A nail cutter
  • An old toothbrush
  • Nourishing cream
  • A towel
  • Socks

And yeah! Last but not the least… Time. 🙂 Do not worry busy bees, it will give you tan free glowing feet in just 20 minutes..!!!
So when you are ready with all the things mentioned above put some music of your choice and you are ready to go. 🙂


Take the bucket of water and add 4-5 drops of shampoo or your bubble bath or shampoo along with salt. Slightly agitate the water and then soak you feet in the bucket for 10 minutes. Please do not forget to remove the nail color if there is any.

After 10 minutes take one foot out of the bucket and without wiping, brush the toe nails briskly yet carefully with the help of tooth brush. This will help removing the dead skin from the nails. Then remove the dirt and grime hidden underneath the nails and give them the desired shape with the help of filer.


Again soak this foot and do the same with the other one.

Once you are done with this now take the first foot out and remove the dead skin from the heels and other parts of the foot by using the pumice stone. Repeat this with the other foot.

When this process is over take the feet out and wipe them with towel.

Now take the lemon slice and start rubbing that on to the feet along with some sugar. Do this for at least 5 minutes and leave that for 5 more minutes. This will remove the tan and dirt from the skin making it lighter in color.

Now change the water of the bucket and dip you feet and wash them with water.

Again wipe them and now take the orange slices. Rub them onto your feet until the juice starts drying.

Leave the feet like that for 5 minutes after drying. Then dip the feet in water, wash them and wipe them. This will again help in bleaching the skin as well as removing dead skin from the feet.

Now, mash the strawberries. Add the oil and salt. Make into a paste. Massage into the feet, rubbing harshly as you go along. Keep rubbing especially around the hardened areas of your feet. Leave the paste on for 10-15 minutes. Now rinse using warm water and thoroughly wipe with towel.


Now massage the feet taking required amounts of the nourishing cream.

Rub the cream on the toe nails too. This will prevent them from chipping and will make them shiny.

One you are done with the massage part pull on the socks and you are ready with soft glowing feet.

You will definitely notice a reduction in tan… 🙂

Note: Lemon, Orange and strawberries contain citrus acid which aids in the removal of tan as it is having bleaching properties.

Same can cause slight tingling sensation too.
