If Your Feet Are Gross – Get Ready For Summer!
Summer is rapidly approaching, and those beautiful shoes are calling your name! If your feet are gross at the end of the long winter, these products can help you cleanse, exfoliate and moisturize your feet. Foot corns, calluses, nail fungus or cracked heels are ugly, and quite common after a long winter of heavy socks, wet feet, boots and dry air. Fortunately, there are some amazing products to address these foot problems in a number of ways…beautifully!
Step 1: Cleanse
1. There are certain things that are just right the way they are, and Johnson’s Foot Soap is one. It’s what we like to call an “everyday luxury” item! Sore feet? Check. Itchy feet? Check. Need to soften those corns and calluses ? Check. This is an affordable workhorse for ugly foot care.
Reviews/Comments: “This is old school, but if you haven’t tried it you don’t know what you are missing. Your feet will never feel this soft and in prepping for my pedis’ this is simply the best…. beats bath salts hands down.” ~fab55
2. Foot bacteria can read lead to a lot of issues…this Antifungal Soap Body & Foot Wash product is all natural, cleans, moisturizes, and protects with tea tree and other oils.
Reviews/Comments: “My husband and I absolutely love this body soap! It leaves you body feeling very clean and fresh. We’ve purchased at least twice and will continue to do so.” ~Zenobia Koeuth
3. The FootMate System Foot Massager & Scrubber massages the soles of your feet, stimulates circulation, and gives your hard working peds a little private time every time you shower! Podiatrist recommended…it is endorsed by the American College Of Foot & Ankle Orthopedics & Medicine.
Reviews/Comments: “This product is rare in that it is as good as advertised. Suction cups hold it in place even with shower raining down on it. “Nubbies” are soft to the skin but so many that they get into every crevice and stimulate circulation. This is a really good product for cleansing the feet and getting a soothing foot massage. ~Charles in TX
Step 2: Exfoliate
1. A foot peel? Oh yeah! This Baby Foot Foot Peel one does just that…removed dead skin and gives you baby soft feet! Two applications.
Reviews/Comments: “I realize the company won’t appreciate this, but I am very frugal. I used a set of these in December and it was awesome. In preparation for sandals I wanted to use this again. I opened one bootie and put it on one foot after soaking. Each bootie is individually sealed. After the time passed and soaked my other foot, I removed it from first foot and placed it one the second one. There was plenty of product in the bootie for both feet and it worked like a charm. It’s a little time consuming but well worth it. Now, I have one bootie left to apply later.” ~Sheryl A.
2. Waterproof and made to use in the shower…right where you need it most! Pedi Perfect Wet & Dry buffs away the dead skin and calluses on your feet and emerge with pedi-perfet feet. Even better…it’s rechargeable, so you don’t need to worry about batteries!
Reviews/Comments: “I have always had very dry skin. In the winter, it gets really bad, especially around my hands, feet, and, weirdly, my shoulders. I put lotion on my whole body twice a day–and that helps a lot–but my heels still crack open and bleed. I try to moisturize and exfoliate them often to remove dead skin and keep them as soft as possible. I’ve been using Revlon Sugar Sensation Foot File, 1 ea and also a foot pumice that I found at Walgreens (and can’t find on Amazon). They both work fine. Honestly, up until I tried this Pedi Perfect, I thought things were as good as they were going to get.” ~Ladybug
3.Unique Dr. Pedicure product touts anti-aging effects for your feet, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and removing bacteria on your feet and between your toes. It even comes with a 30-day “Better than Money-Back” guarantee, and you can get it in Lavender too!
Reviews/Comments: “I never write reviews, but these things are amazing! It takes about four days for the process to start, but then your feet peel like crazy. The skin that’s left is new, soft, and amazing. I recommend these to anyone.” ~Amazon Customer
Step 3: Moisturize
With nearly 5,000 positive reviews, O’Keeffe’s for Healthy Feet is doing SOMETHING right!
Reviews/Comments: “I have tried everything for my cracked heals. From creams from the doctors to soaking my feet in oils and nothing worked. I use this product three times and my feet look hundred times better. I do not write reviews but I have to mention this cream IT. IS. A MA ZING!!!!!” ~Natalie
2.Gold Bond is a tried and true product that’s been around for a long time. No-nonsense and affordable, creamy not greasy, makes it easy to use under socks!
Reviews/Comments: “I really like this Gold Bond Softening Foot Cream a lot! I have only been using it for a few days and have noticed a big change to the callouses on my feet – they are so much softer in such a short time. I get callouses in the center of my foot and on the side of my big toe from constantly wearing heels to work. Both spots are much softer – and therefore not as uncomfortable — after using this cream. The cream is not greasy or oily at all and the shea butter gives it an extra richness. It has a nice fresh scent too. It is as good or better than some more expensive foot creams that I have tried — and the price for this one is extremely affordable.” ~Mary H.
Yellow Bird All Natural Foot Cream is an organic foot cream with therapeutic grade essential oils. Promotes improved blood circulation, moisturizes, and provides a gentle soothing sensation that’s perfect for soothing achy feet or providing relief from neuropathy. 100% Guarantee.
Reviews/Comments: “My feet were in pretty bad shape before foot doctors were scared I bought this stuff because it was natural and I’ve been using it for a little while and my feet look almost brand new I never thought my feet would ever look like this this is the best product that I’ve ever came across and I will continue using it trust me this isn’t a fake product this is real stuff that really works” ~Big Boy
These are just some of the reasons feet are gross at one time or another, but consistent care and careful maintenance can ensure you can avoid any of the common problems. Unlike conditions like plantar fasciitis, most unattractive foot issues can be taken care of or minimized.
