Are Your Tootsies Ready for Summer?

Netflix, Inc.

You don't have to be guilty of skanky sandal feet this Summer. It doesn't take a lot of expensive trips so the spa to have nice looking feet, all you need is to exfoliate and moisturize daily, then pretty up your toes with a nice polish.

The best type of moisturizer for your feet is one with alpha hydroxy acids. These will slough off the dead skin cells that make your heels so dry. Apply a good one twice a day: after bathing, and at night.

Here is a recipe for an all natural moisturizing treatment for your feet. The papaya contains natural fruit acids.

Mix:
1 ripe papaya
1 cup plain yogurt
1 T. honey
1 T. coconut oil


Apply to feet then slip into old socks for at least 15 minutes. (While you wait, deep condition your hair or apply a self tanner.)

Contrary to popular belief, if you use a pumice to scrub the dead skin off your feet, it will actually be more effective if you do this when your feet are dry, not wet. After you remove calluses, rub your feet briskly with a salt or sugar scrub, then soak your feet for 10 minutes in warm water. Push back your cuticles gently, and apply a moisturizer, making sure to keep it off your toenails.

Then, apply two coats of a polish you like. A pale pink looks good on almost all skin tones and makes your feet look tan too. To keep them looking good, apply a top coat once every other day.

    I never realized you should use a pumice and scrub while feet are dry? I will have to try this receipe. I have not seen this one before.

    I heard that using glycolic or salicylic acid treatments also works on callouses, especially thick, dry heels.

    Haha Skanky Sandal feet, best laugh all day! I am guilty of this, even though it is not from lack of effort! Seems you can never moisturize your feet enough in the summer. I will try this method, thank you! And also, large manicure files work wonders in exfoliating dead skin off heels and toes (dry of course!)
