Summer holidays play havoc with my winter smooth feet. Walking on hot sand at the beach and even walking over hot pavement in sandals can create dry and calloused feet. They are gross, catch on things and don’t look pretty in your summer strappy shoes do they.
There are a few things that can help you to smooth out those white dry heels and balls of the feet.
1. Pumice Stone
A pumice stone gently scrubs away the dead skin and excess white build up of hard skin on your heels, toes and balls of your feet. You can use it in the shower or bath, just soak your feet in warm water for a few minutes and rub the stone over your rough parts.
2. Foot Mask
After wearing stockings or socks in the sticky weather, your feet can really stink. Soak your feet in a bucket of warm water, dry them off, rub a foot mask cream, such as La Source Intensive Conditioning Foot Mask from Crabtree & Evelyn, all over your feet and toes (stinky bits get stuck under your nails). Let the mask dry for 10 minutes and then rinse off in your bucket of water. This mask soothes sore feet and makes them smell so fresh! It’s one of my favourite things after a long hot day at work.
3. Dry skin cream
Before bed, I rub a little bit of Scholl Dry Skin Instant Recovery Cream cream on my heels and balls of my feet where dryness and cracks are. It absorbs pretty quickly and the next morning I can really see the difference in my feet. It contains a formula that exfoliates dead skin cells and allows the special moisture boosters to penetrate deep into the skin to hydrate it. I have been using this cream for a few weeks now and I am ready for the hot weather to begin and my new wedges to come out of their box to hit the pavement!
Are your feet ready for summer?
