With the warmer weather comes sandals, flip-flops and pumps. All of which show off our lovely winter feet, which if we're honest could probably do with some loving before we show them off! So today I've compiled a post of the steps I take to get my feet looking their best. I know it's something a little different from my usual posts, but I hope you enjoy it!
Step One: Put a Mask on it!
Yes you can use a mask on your feet aswell! There are ones specifically designed for feet that can scrub, soften and deodorize. One in particular that I've been loving is the Lush Volcano Foot Mask & Scrub (£5.50). I tend to use it with clingfilm like it suggests and then use the Pumice in it to give a light scrub whilst removing it. But if you don't want to spend this much on a foot mask, try a face mask designed for dry skin.
Step Two: Soak the days Away!
You don't have to skip this step if you don't have one of those fancy foot spa things. I used to have one and I'll admit their nice and relaxing, but you can also just use a plastic bowl/washing-up bowl. Not the kitchen one though, just get a cheapy one for your feet! Or even sit over the side of the bath with some shallow water in it. But wherever you decide to soak your feet, it can be great to add some extra product to help soften your feet - something such as The Body Shop's Shea Shower Cream (£4).
Step Three: Scrub Up!
This is a really important step in getting your feet beach ready! It is important to go for a level of scrubbing that suites the amount of dry skin you have on your feet. I don't want to get too discusting here, so I won't go into that area anymore! But the tool I've shown here is a miracle worker, it has pumice, sandpaper and cheese grater (for want of better words!) sides to it as well as a nail brush. I got this from Poundland, for £1, but I've also seen them in Asda as part of their N-Spa range - cheap too!
Step Four: Moisture Miracles!
This is my favourite out of the steps and something I do pretty much everyday - moisturize my feet! I'm not too picky on the products I use but I've chosen the Shea Body Butter from The Body Shop (from £5) to show you as it's a great. But something I don't have anymore - the Peppermint Intensive Foot Rescue (£9) also from The Body Shop is a fabulous choice. When moisturizing I like to spend some time massaging it into my feet getting a lot of product on and then putting a pair of socks on to maximise the effectiveness of the product!
A final step would be to paint your nails to make them shine too. I personally don't own any nail polish - surprising I know! So haven't got anything to show you, but I hear the BarryM ones are good! But I hope the rest of the steps were helpful :) It's great to repeat the routine once or twice a week for a more lasting effect. But the last step is something I like to do everyday!
Anyway I hope you enjoyed todays post and that you got something useful from it! Thanks for stopping by, and hello to all my new followers -waves- H :)
