6 Tips for Soft & Supple Feet

While winters offer us the escape of hiding our cracked heels in fuzzy warm socks, come summer and we all want to show off our freshly painted toes and smooth feet. Wondering how to get those picture perfect feet while stuck at home? Read on!

If there’s one thing that staying at home has taught us, it’s that a lot of skincare can be done at home - often better and cheaper than what we may get at a salon. And caring for your feet is no different! A simple DIY three-step routine can help you maintain soft feet - a foot soak, exfoliation and moisturization. Want to take your home pedicure regime to the next level? There are a number of products you can try - including foot masks, scrubs, soaks and creams, and we’re here to share what works and what doesn’t.

#1 Pamper & soak
Treat your feet to a relaxing and rejuvenating foot soak at least twice a month. It’s an easy way to get your feet summer ready without making an expensive trip to the salon. Use ingredients like baking soda, vinegar and tea tree oil to soften the skin and relax the foot muscles. Combine warm water with any one of these ingredients and soak for 15-20 minutes. Once done - scrub gently with a warm towel or a pumice stone and finish with your favorite moisturizer to let the goodness soak in.

#2 Exfoliate & Scrub
Dead skin can build up on our feet due to the friction from walking, or from constantly being in closed shoes. Which is why it’s important to regularly care for and scrub our feet.

The easiest way to exfoliate your feet is to use a pumice stone and target all the tough spots like the heel. A pumice stone is a naturally abrasive stone used to smoothen rough skin, you can easily find one at your local drugstore. Make sure to dip your feet in warm water for 10-15 mins before exfoliation, that will help soften the skin and make exfoliation more effective.

Another way to achieve soft feet is to use a foot scrub. Let go off the scrub which has been lying under your washbasin for years longer than you can remember. It’s time to check out our amazing coffee and peppermint foot scrub. Nourished with the goodness of caffeine and almond oil, this scrub makes your feet feel refreshed and soft almost instantly.

#3 Daily moisturization & maintenance
If you’re guilty of ignoring your feet and not tending to their needs, it might be time to include a simple but effective foot care regime as part of your daily routine. Something as simple as moisturizing your feet after your bath can go a long way in preventing rough skin and cracked heels. We do realise building habits takes time, and the easiest tip would be to keep a bottle of foot cream handy on your bedside table or dresser - so you have a trusty reminder to moisturize.

#4 The oldest trick in the book
A saviour when it comes to dehydrated skin, coconut and petroleum jelly are used in almost all skin care routines. It’s no surprise that it works wonders for dry and tired feet too. Here’s a hack to make your feet feel rejuvenated overnight.

- Before going to bed, wash your feet to get rid of any dirt/bacteria.
- Next, apply a generous amount of coconut oil/vaseline to massage and nourish your feet and put on a pair of socks afterwards.
- When you wake up the next morning, exfoliate your feet with a hot towel or a pumice stone and say hello to baby soft feet!
- Don’t forget to apply a foot cream or lotion to lock in the moisture.

#5 Comfortable footwear
It’s very common to pick the shoes that look better, rather than choosing the ones that fit better and are more comfortable. Don’t worry, it’s not just you, we’re guilty too! More often than not, ill fitting shoes cause shoe bites, corns and cracked heels. The next time you’re picking out a pair of shoes, keep in mind that comfortable feet are happy feet, and go in for the ones that fit well.

#6 Foot massages
Foot massages are a great way to not only pamper your tired feet, but they also improve circulation, stimulate your muscles, and reduce tension - giving you soft and supple feet in the process. There are a host of handy and reasonably priced foot massagers that you can invest in, and integrate a massage in your monthly home pedicure routine.

That’s it, you’re all set to transform your feet from scaly to smooth using our quick and easy home remedies. Time to bring out your summer footwear and enjoy the season without any hesitation!
