The warmer weather is here and we all know what that means... SANDALS!
If your feet aren't sandal ready, this could bring extra stress to enjoying the sunny days ahead. No need to worry - 5 simple steps and affordable home spa luxuries - your feet will be smiling in no time!
Number one : SOAK
Always start by soaking your feet. Fill your tub or a deep bucket with lukewarm water in a few drops of tea tree oil. Rub your feet with a cloth and don't overlook the spaces between your toes where dirt and dry skin can linger. Treat yourself to a soak a couple times a week during the hot summer months, your feet will thank you for it.
Number two: SCRUB
Now that your feet are soft from soaking, exfoliating will accelerate your sandal ready feet. Finding the perfect foot scrub can go a long way. Sugar scrubs keep the moisture on your skin compared to salt scrubs that could dehydrate it. Find a scrub that has nourishing oils and butters to keep your feet moisturized and looking their best longer.
Koffee Beauty's Mint coffee scrub is packed with antioxidants and hydrating oils such as Sweet Almond Oil, Shea Butter and Vitamin E to keep your feet soft and moisturized. The organic mint essential oil also helps cool down inflammation after a long day.
Number three: BUFF
For that extra hard skin around your heels and the ball of your foot, use a buffer to create beautiful, luxuriously soft feet. You can use a pumice stone or foot file for best results.
Number four: MOISTURIZE
If you have extra dry skin, added moisture can help your feet feel prettier, longer. Look for a light moisturizing lotion to apply on the top and bottom of your feet.
Number Five: ADD SOME COLOR
Make them toes look pretty. With 20 years of experience Michelle Basque from Soigne MB Salon gives us this years top nail colours. Neon turquoise, bright pink-ish red and a pinky nude are this years in style. She also recommends to keep your moisturizing lotion on the top and bottom of your feet but never between your toes - this will prevent any bacteria growth and healthier feet to show off all summer long.
