Are you one of those people who is always barefoot? Well, I am…I don’t like wearing shoes, I especially don’t like wearing socks, and I can’t be bothered with slippers. I just want my feet to be free!
So yeah, my feet are dry and I have calluses, but I’m not about to go to a nail salon to take care of it. I don’t like nail salons, and I am perfectly capable of doing my own feet.
So, here is how I DIY.
1. Epsom Salt Foot Soak
I fill up my tub just a little bit and add some of this Dr. Teals Foaming Bath. This has Epsom salts and essential oils and makes my feet feel very nice. It smells really good, and is pretty cheap. They have a whole bunch of kinds, but I am really liking this Pink Himalayan Sea Salt kind.
I just sit on the edge of my tub and soak my feet for around 20-30 minutes. I will just relax and read for awhile until I’m tired of sitting there.
I take one foot out at a time and use a pumice stone on the bottoms of my feet while they are still wet. This is very rough, so be careful to not do it too hard or too long. It will do a really good job of getting rid of dead skin. I will then put that foot back into the tub, and do the other one.
The next thing I do is take my feet out of the water and dry them off. I use a foot file to smooth the calluses and dry patches. This step really works to make my feet soft again. Don’t do this for too long, or else you’ll have sore feet.
4. File Nails and Paint
After filing, I will grab a nail file and clippers and start working on my toes. I will then paint them and let them dry. I always choose hot pink for my toes 🙂
After the polish is dry, I will slather on a really thick lotion, like this Aveeno Skin Relief Overnight Cream. I will then put on some nice thick socks to hold the moisture in and keep the lotion on all night.
When I wake up in the morning, I will have smooth soft feet!
