Getting your feet sandal ready

By Devi Chettiar, PA-C

It’s finally that time of year when we look forward to dusting off those sandals and setting our toes free! Wondering what you can do to get your feet sandal ready without spending too much on a pedicure? Follow these easy, at-home steps to get summer ready feet in no time. 

  1. Soak your feet in warm water for about 10 minutes.  Add Epsom salts, tea tree oil or apple cider vinegar if desired.
  2. After soaking, use an exfoliating scrub, like our Skin Wise Organics Invigorating Body Scrub.
  3. Once dry, use a callus file or a pumice stone to file down the softened dead skin. Another option is to use a cream designed to help soften and dissolve dry, thickened skin.  Our NMD 40% urea cream is a specially formulated product to help get your thick, dry skin under control. 
  4. Use a thick moisturizing cream or balm to retain moisture and keep the skin looking soft and healthy.
  5. Treat yourself to a fun nail polish color if that’s your thing!

If the winter has really taken a toll on your feet and you need something a bit more intense to smooth out your calluses, try an exfoliating foot peel such as Baby Foot.  This pre-packaged treatment contains disposable booties that you leave on for about an hour.  This treatment causes significant peeling and rejuvenation over the course of 1-2 weeks to leave your feet baby-soft. Give the at-home remedies or Baby Foot a try and your feet will be sandal-ready in no time!
