Its summertime, and that means it time for strappy sandals and funky flip-flops! However, a few months of hibernating in socks and closed-toes shoes might mean you may need to have a little maintenance done down there. With the warm weather ahead, it’s time to show your tootsies the love they need in order to be sandal-ready for the beach! Below are some basic tips to keep your feet looking and feeling fantastic:
Exfoliate and moisturize
If you have dry or cracked heels, your first step is to exfoliate. Cold winter, dry skin may show on your toes and the undersides of your feet as well. To start, try using a pumice stone to slough off any dead skin when your feet are dry before pampering and soothing your feet with a foot scrub. Do this with a loofah by applying your favorite “sweet-smelling” scrub in smooth, circular motions while gently scrubbing the tops and bottoms of your feet and toes. When it’s bedtime, apply a heavy cream and cover with moisturizing socks overnight to let it all soak in. *Repeat this process at least twice a week.
Toe Nail Care
We take care of our toenails a little differently than our fingernails because they are naturally thicker. If not properly cut and filed, your toenails may start growing into the sides of your toes, causing pain or infection. Make sure to cut and file your toenails at least once a week to not only keep them looking their best but to check for any signs of infection or fungus.
While during the summer, many people love to go barefoot. However, walking around on hot pavement, burning sand, or even grass can quickly ruin all the work that you just did to treat your feet. It’s best to wear shoes or at the very least, sandals, to protect your feet and toes from developing calluses and rough patches.
Treat Your Feet with a Boise Pedicure!
