For the full spa experience, fill your tub with warm water and soak feet for five to 10 minutes. Go all out by adding a few drops of uplifting essential oils (like antibacterial tea tree) or a pinch of mineral salt to help rejuvenate tired feet. Massage cuticles with a nourishing vitamin E oil and gently push them back with an orangewood stick.

MC TIP: Trim cuticles only if necessary —like in the case of a hangnail, warns Choi. "It's never a good idea to cut the cuticle at the base of the nail, as it will likely tear and ruin a great pedicure."
