The souls of your feet deserve a happy life too!
We know foot care is probably not the most appealing topic of discussion- but we need to stress on it because feet are the most neglected part of our body! Yes, we know you’re frowning because nobody wants to read the word ‘feet’ so many times in a beauty related article.. But we must. Summers are slowly creeping back in and we will see a wide array of chapals, sandals and what not on everyone’s feet. And do you know what the worst thing is? Seeing crusty, flaky heels. Nobody deserves to see a pair of unsightly heels so please ladies, and especially gents, stop lazying around and rid your feet of the dryness. Cringe.
We understand that getting a weekly mani pedi is not a luxury that everyone can afford. Fear not, because there are a multitude of ways to bring your feet back to being their best selves! Just follow our advice and your feet will be summer ready in no time at all.
Indulge in a Soak
Fill a tub with warm water, and soak your feet in it for 15-20 minutes. Add an essential oil of your choice (we recommend lavender oil) and up your self care factor! This will not only soften and prepare your feet, but will relax your mind too. A little dip of the feet will do more good than harm!

Since your feet are soft at this point, it will be easier to get rid of calluses i.e. the thick, hard dead skin. Apply a scrub on your feet to get rid of any excess dirt and then use a foot filer and scrub your feet gently.

Moisturize and Seal
You can apply all the lotions and potions in the world and they wont work if they dont absorb into your feet! Get a cream specifically made for feet and apply it once you pat your feet dry. Let the moisturizer absorb into your skin and lock the hydration in with an oil of your choice. Put your socks on so the hydrating formula can work while you sleep.

Once your feet are squeaky clean, dress them up with a bit of nail lacquer. This definitely does not have to be part of your foot care routine but if you want your feet to look pretty and looked after, we recommend applying a nude, minimal colour that will go with just about anything!
