Eeek! Hot sand, tar, asphalt, pool microbes and high heeled sandals-feet sure take a beating in summer yet everyone wants to have and show off pretty manicured feet and painted toes.
To own a pair of these beautiful feet you need to pamper them by moisturizing and massaging regularly. Dry rough nails, fungal infection, cracked heels, swollen feet, corns and calluses are all the result of neglect. We sometimes thoughtlessly put our feet in sandals or shoes that pinch and hurt.
“To Restore Your Sole” you need to exfoliate dead skin cells that have accumulated on your feet. First, soak your feet for 5-10 minutes. Then, dry them and lotion areas that are dry. By moisturizing before using a foot file you’re adding moisture back into dry areas. Now, take a foot file or loofah and remove any soft dead skin cells. Rinse your feet and towel dry making sure to thoroughly dry between toes. Apply moisturizer or lotion all over your feet and massage. Before going to bed put a pair of clean, dry socks on. Repeating this process twice a week should produce noticeable results. Follow up with a regular pedicure every 4-6 weeks to keep your feet healthy and beautiful.
