- In between salon visits or home pedi treatments for soft feet
There are few things worse, and I mean WORSE than seeing someone well put together, shoes to die for, and then you get a closer look at the feet and BOOM, you see ashy feet with dry, cracked heels on full display.
Whyyyy sweet baby Jesus, whyyy? One of my pet peeves has to be ashy white cracked heels and I tend to wonder, maybe these people don’t see it or they just don’t care. If you think this might be you, just do a quick heel check before you step out. If it’s someone you know, you should get close and whisper: “neighbor, your feet needs to get right and you need to read this article.” Now, I am by no means trying to feet-shame anybody, but we know with just a little bit of help you can go from Ashy Larry to Smooth Seddy with the Segxzy feet. Here are the products to keep your feet AND heels soft & smooth this summer while rocking those sexy sandals. Let your feet and sexy shoes be the star of the show.
Babyfoot Deep Skin Exfoliation for Feet
Theres a reason why there’s so much hype around this product and believe you me it is worth every penny and then some. The problem is the wait to let the dead skin peel and when it does, oh it peels. Pro-tip: soak your feet about 30mins-1hr depending on how hard/callousy your feet are before sliding your tootsies into the baby foot booties.
Volcanic lava rock Pumice Stone
This is more of a maintenance than a problem solver. I usually do this towards the end of the shower when the water’s ran down, and I’ve washed my legs and feet, and the feet is now a bit soft. You can get the raw ones from a market or pick one up.
Many people have their opinions about Vaseline but one this is for sure, it’s relatively inexpensive and it works. I’ve done the Tyra Banks trick where I clean my feet at night, put some vaseline and saran wrap it overnight covered by socks. One hack I recently also found was using bubble wrap, i know it sounds weird but it works. Keep a small jar of vaseline in your purse at all times because vaseline can give you the result lotion can’t; just don’t apply too much, or you’ll start sliding out of your shoes.
Earth Therapeutics Soft & Smooth Gentle Peeling Foot Mask
Deborah Lippmann Get Off Callus Softener
KP Duty Dermatologist Formulated Body Scrub with Chemical + Physical Exfoliation
Sol de Janeiro Samba 2-Step Foot Fetish Care
This is another product from the people that brought us the Bum Bum cream. The cream is great and also has a small smoothing board to keep in your bag so if you happen to find yourself, dry feet and ashy, you can quickly remedy it temporarily on the go.
Lush Volcano Foot Mask
ProLinc be natural Callus Eliminator
It’s recommended to put on gloves before slathering it on your pre-soaked feet. Once your heel and under feet is coated in the gel like solution, wrap it with some cling Saran wrap and let sit for 20-30 mins. Scrape off before sloughing remaining callus with pumice stone.
