Summertime means that sandals and bare feet are an absolute must. However, that also means that your feet will probably take quite a beating transporting you from place to place everyday. To get those tootsies prepped and stay primed for the entire summer, you’ll need to give them some extra TLC. Keeping the skin soft and beautiful can take some work. Here are three simple steps that’ll let you rock those scrappy sandals all summer long.
This is as basic as it gets. Fill a bath or wash basin with warm, soapy water. You can add epsom salt for extra softness or to relieve any pain or discomfort. Soak your feet for 10-15 minutes to loosen dead skin before moving on to step two — scrubbing.
Now that you’ve properly soaked your footsies, it’s time time to follow up with a good scrub to remove dead skin cells. Exfoliating after soaking allows the skin to properly regenerate and form new and healthy skin cells.
Moisturizing is the key to keeping skin soft and hydrated throughout the summer months. Running around barefoot and in flip flops can take a toll on the heels and toes, leaving the skin dull and dry. After soaking and exfoliating, applying a hydrating foot cream will keep them soft, smooth and ready for action.
