In preparation of wearing our beloved flip-flops and summer sandals, it's time to assess the damage to our feet. Those heels have pounded the pavement, danced, worked out, and are likely looking a little cracked. Now that warmer weather is upon us and we're ready to hit the beach, it's about that time to refresh your feet.
If you have dry, cracked heels, you can head to the nearest nail salon for an intensive pedicure ... or head to the nearest drugstore for these all-star products. We found the best solutions for dry skin, cracked heels, and more. Here's a breakdown of what to use:
1. A Foot Scrub
Any old body scrub just won't do. Look for one specifically made for feet, with exfoliating pumice grains for extra sloughing. We love this peppermint scrub by The Body Shop. It literally puts some pep in your step!
Products made for the thick skin on your feet contain higher concentrations of ingredients than those for use on other (more sensitive) parts of the body. This foot cream is deeply hydrating for lasting results.
Mr. Pumice makes fabulous pumice stones. Hop into the shower, lather one foot at a time in soapy water, and scrub away. Wet down the pumice stone first for the best results.
Baby Foot is legendary for its ability to completely transform feet. The high urea content causes your skin cell turnover process to speed up, resulting in your feet "shedding" dry skin like a snake in about three to five days after using the foot mask. It's alarming, and you'll need to wear socks for a few days until it's done. But after that, you'll have baby-soft feet, just like the name suggests.
To take your cracked heels treatment to the next level, slip on some moisturizing socks to further nurture your feet while you slumber. You'll wake up with refreshed feet and improved skin texture, sans cracks.
