5 Ways to Prep Feet for Summer

Posted on 13. Jun, 2011 by in Uncategorized

STEP 1 — SLOUGH SKIN

Once a week, remove calluses from damp feet with a pumice stone. 

STEP 2 — FAKE A PEDI

When you are pressed for time, try this shortcut pedicure.  Dip a cotton swab in nail polish remover and swipe it across and under toenails to remove visible dirt. Then massage your entire foot with olive oil. Towel off excess and you are good to go.

STEP 3 — TACKLE TOENAILS

Buff nails every six weeks to smooth them out. Yellowish? Apply a base coat before polish to keep pigment from staining nails.  Or go polish free for a few days. Polish retains moisture which can trigger a staining action.

STEP 4 — BEAT ODOR

Prevent sweating and stinky feet by swiping soles with antiperspirant in the morning. Or wipe away odor causing bacteria with a facial towelette. Avoid deodorizing powders that can cause clogs in sweat glands.

STEP 5 — POLISH IT OFF

For a POP of color, you can’t go wrong with true red. Too bright and too much? Find an opaque beige, because it will make even gnarly toes look pretty .
