A 3-Step Guide to Achieving Smooth & Soft Feet for the Summer

Sneakerheads, take note.

I, like many women, wear sneakers 24/7. I have a diverse rotation that now includes bulky boots thanks to the winter weather. Though footwear technology has dramatically improved with midsole being bolstered with airy cushions the fact still remains that wearing shoes nonstop can do a number on your feet. No one likes to look (or touch) dry, cracked heels that no longer respond to lotions and creams. In order to heal your feet it requires some exfoliation as well as daily nourishing to ensure that you’re slipping smooth feet into your favorite socks.

In lieu of a pricey professional pedicure we’ve developed a three-step guide to maintaining soft feet year round. Peep the process below.

Peels, Masks and Treatments

The first step to achieving smooth heels is to slough off all the layers of dead, hardened skin that has accumulated over time. Start off with an exfoliating mask from Dr. Pedicure or the handy Callus Terminator which both help remove the built-up skin using gentle acids. After chemically peeling or manually removing the skin, maintain your results with a monthly application of a mask or treatment from Lush or the Sephora Collection.

Scrubs and Polishes

It is mandatory that you keep a scrub or polish in your shower for weekly maintenance of your precious feet. Fresh and The Body Shop offer options that are not only hydrating but also relaxing. Peppermint oils, vitamin E and shea butters are all included in these formula promising a rejuvenating experience for your toes and heels.

Creams and Lotions

Moisture is key in making sure that all your scrubbing and exfoliating was not for naught. Finishing your foot regimen with a thick cream or lotion is essential for long-lasting results. After a shower or bath, slather on Lush’s Pink Peppermint foot cream or your favorite butter-based product so you can wake up to happy toes.
