After a long winter being shoved into thick socks and long boots, it can be a little scary to expose your feet for the first time. But whether you are strolling through the city in sandals or feeling the sand beneath your toes, we have some great recommendations and tips on how to make your feet summer-ready.
CALLUS BE GONE
Calluses are rough patches of skin that form on your feet and are sometimes caused by wearing uncomfortable shoes. These tough, hard areas aren’t painful, but can be unsightly – if you want to get rid of them in time to have baby-soft feet for summer, then the Emjoi Micro-Pedi Nano Callus Remover is the product for you! It’s more effective than simply using a pumice stone, thanks to the motor roller, but remains gentle and kind to feet. Use this as an alternative to visiting a spa or a podiatrist – simply pour yourself a drink, pop in the battery, and prepare for your toes to look their best.
SILKY SHEA BUTTER
Moisturizing is vital in the journey towards perfect feet – we love this Shea butter cream from L’Occitane, which always puts out amazing natural skincare and beauty products. () Shea butter is a great way to add moisture to your skin, making your feet smooth and soft for summer. Best of all, this product also comes in a handy travel size, so you can pack it in your suitcase for vacation.
(DON’T) BURN BABY BURN
Many people forget to apply or reapply sunscreen to their feet during the day –but if you’re in a sunny, hot climate, and your feet are exposed in sandals or flipflops, they can burn just as easily as the rest of your skin. So remember to reapply your body sunscreen to your toes with the same frequency as you do elsewhere – aside from the health risks and discomfort of sunburn, sandal tan lines are not attractive.
PICTURE PERFECT PEDI
Rihanna is in the Caribbean, @karliekloss is in Madrid, and Jay-Z, @Beyonce and Blue Ivy are living the dream in Hawai; and you’re watching it all unfold on social media. Now is the time of year we stare enviously at everyone’s Instagram accounts as they frolic on the beach or relax in the garden, counting down the days until our own vacation. You’ll see a lot of repetition in photos – hammocks, bikini flatlays, poolside selfies, and, most importantly, their feet on the sand. Make your own beach-feet ‘grams as cool as Rihanna’s with a polished pedi to match your surroundings. This sparkling turquoise Essie nail paint in Viva Antigua! is perfect for a tropical getaway.
