Summer Feet

This Spring I have been tending to my tootsies on an almost obsessional basis. They have been scrubbed and moisturised within an inch of their lives, but I think the results have been worth it.

I tend to get hard skin on my heels and the pads of my big toes which is worsened probably because I practically live in my Dr Martens and Converse most of the year. So as soon as it’s hot and my feet demand a more skimpy style of footwear I look at my feet, go “oh no” and quickly go into the emergency, must-get-my-feet-looking-half decent mode. I was determined not to get caught out this year though.

The products I’ve been using are Soap&Glory‘s Sugar Crush Body Scrub and Heel Genius and they’ve worked wonders, transforming the feet I was too ashamed to bare from dry and calloused to smooth as my baby’s bottom. They must be pretty wonderful products really because it’s been no mean feat! (See what I did there?)

The other weapons in my arsenal are a pumice for sloughing off dead skin and a pair of socks that I apply every evening once I’ve moisturised and which, much to my husband’s dismay I sleep in! Apart from the intensely moisturised feet, the other bonus of the socks is they help keep my feet lovely and warm so I sleep really well!

And this is the end result, which apart from my polish looking a bit scruffy I think looks fairly presentable!

So that’s my recommendation to you all in the run up to summer;  scrub, moisturise and apply bedsocks. They may not a good look but you’ll thank me when your feet look fabulous in your sandals!
