Now that we have all this time stuck inside our homes, it’s the perfect opportunity to get our feet sandal ready!
Sandal season is still coming, even though we’re stuck at home for the near foreseeable future. I have to believe we will all be turned loose at some point, and we want our feet to be all smooth and cute when it’s time to whip out the sandals.
We all can get calloused and/or cracked heels and feet, and they are very unsightly. Definitely NOT sandal ready. 🙂
To combat this, I have used a very effective product several times called Baby Foot Exfoliation Foot Peel.
It is available in lavender and unscented. It uses a fruit acid formula with 16 natural extracts.
This is a perfect product to use to give yourself a spa treatment, because it does take a little time. It is two plastic booties filled with a gel that you put on your feet and leave on for an hour.
Then you remove the booties and thoroughly wash the gel from your feet. Nothing will happen right away. But over the next week or so, your feet will begin to peel a LOT, leaving soft baby skin underneath.
After using this product several times, I have some tips that will make the most of the treatment.
First, prior to putting the gel filled booties on your feet, it will make the treatment more effective if you soak your feet in very warm water for about thirty minutes first. This softens the skin, preparing it to absorb the gel.
Second, make sure you don’t have polish on your toenails when you do this treatment, because the gel will eat it off and leave you with a mess of a ruined pedicure. Learned that one the hard way. So remove your polish prior to the treatment.
Third, and this is just my preference, but I have found it helpful to put a big pair of bulky socks on over the plastic booties. This helps the booties really adhere to the feet, and can help you walk to your resting spot without slipping. 🙂 Then they keep your feet nice and toasty while you relax for an hour.
And finally, soaking your feet in warm water every evening for about thirty minutes the first week really helps expedite the peeling process. It’s kind of gross, as your feet will really start molting in the tub, but it really does help speed things along.
The peeling will lessen each time you soak, and by the end of about two weeks, you will have baby feet!
So to recap:
- Soak your feet for 30 minutes in warm water
- Put on the Baby Foot booties
- Put a pair of socks on over the plastic booties, if desired
- Leave on for one hour
- Remove booties and wash feet thoroughly with soap and water
- Soak feet nightly for 30 minutes in warm water to expedite peeling process
Since we have all this time at home, and nowhere to be, and no one to see our feet while they peel, this quarantine is the PERFECT time to indulge in this treatment for your feet. A nightly foot soak in a warm tub is a wonderful way to disconnect from all the barrage of news and information overload we’re experiencing right now.
So let’s be productive while we relax, and get our feet sandal ready! By the time they spring us loose, we’ll all have gorgeous soft feet to slip in our sandals while we go get our roots done. 🙂
