Are you tired of your feet looking like they’ve been through a cheese-grater? Do you long for silky-smooth skin that looks like it belongs in an ad for luxury spa treatments? Fear not, my dear friend, because I have some tips and tricks up my sleeve that will turn your rough soles into something fit for the pages of Vogue. Let’s get down to business.
Soak It Up
The first step in any foot-care regimen is to give those puppies a good soak. Not only does it soften the skin, but it also helps to clean out any dirt or debris that may be lurking in between your toes. Here are some things you can add to your soaking water:
- Epsom salt
- Apple cider vinegar
- Lemon juice
- Baking soda
Pro-tip: Don’t forget to moisturize after soaking!
Now that your feet are nice and soft from all that soaking action, it’s time to grab a scrub and go to town on those calluses. There are plenty of store-bought options available, but if DIY is more your thing (and let’s face it, who doesn’t love feeling like Martha Stewart), here are a few recipes you can try at home:
Brown sugar scrub
Mix together 1 cup brown sugar with ½ cup coconut oil until well combined. Massage mixture onto feet using circular motions for several minutes before rinsing off with warm water.
Coffee ground scrub
Mix together ¼ cup coffee grounds with 2 tablespoons olive oil until well combined. Massage mixture onto feet using circular motions for several minutes before rinsing off with warm water.
Baking soda and lemon juice scrub
Mix together equal parts baking soda and lemon juice until you have a paste-like consistency. Massage mixture onto feet using circular motions for several minutes before rinsing off with warm water.
Pro-tip: Don’t go overboard with the scrubbing, or you might end up with raw, painful feet. Be gentle!
For those of us dealing with serious calluses, sometimes a mere scrub just doesn’t cut it. In this case, I recommend trying an at-home chemical peel for your feet. Here are two popular options:
Lactic acid peel
Lactic acid is a gentle exfoliant that can help to slough off dead skin cells without causing irritation. Simply apply a lactic-acid infused foot peel as directed and wait for the magic to happen!
Glycolic acid peel
Similar to lactic acid, glycolic acid is another option for those looking to get serious about their foot-care game. Follow the instructions carefully when using any kind of chemical peel.
Pro-tip: Make sure you do not have any cuts or open wounds on your feet before attempting a chemical peel. The results could be less than desirable.
Keep It Moisturized!
After all that hard work removing dry skin from your feet (pat yourself on the back!), it’s important not to neglect them in the moisture department. Here are some tips on how best to keep those babies soft and smooth:
- Apply lotion regularly
- Wear socks overnight after applying lotion
- Use coconut oil as an alternative moisturizer
- Avoid wearing heels without proper padding – this can cause your feet to dry out quicker!
Pro-tip: Don’t forget sunblock if you’ll be soaking up rays poolside or at the beach!
So there you have it folks – my comprehensive guide on how best to remove thick dry skin from those piggies of yours. Time to show ’em off in some cute sandals (with arch support). Happy walking!
