No one wants dry feet. They are such a nuisance. Winter or summer, dry and cracked feet are uncomfortable. They can hurt, ache, and even scratch your partner when you’re in bed.
But, without heading to a salon for a full pedicure and then some, how on earth do you achieve nice soft feet at home? Well, it’s easier than ever before.
Whether you want a deep treatment or a quick fix, we’ve got everything you need to turn those crusty feet into smooth ones.
LUSH Volcano Foot Mask (Shop here)
You’ve surely heard of a face mask, but a foot maks? That’s right. A foot mask that cleans deodorizes, and softens the feet. This all-natural mask is made with clay and pumice to give you a deep clean, and soothing experience. This mask makes you feel like you are soaking your feet in natural mud from the wilderness. It smells amazing, and when you rinse it off after ten minutes, not only will the mask be removed, but so will all your dead skin. It is a sight to see.
Scholl’s Cracked Heel Repair Balm (Shop here)
If you don’t have time for a mask but want something easy and quick, this is the easiest and the quickest. This roll-up balm features 25% urea, a potent ingredient that draws moisture into the skin while both softening and smoothing it. After a shower or bath, rub this stick onto the soles of your feet. It will absorb, and off you go. It couldn’t get any easier, and you’ll see results in as little as a week.
Baby Foot (Shop here)
You’ve undoubtedly heard about the viral foot pack that makes your feet shed. It is an exfoliating peel in the shape of socks. There are tons of heavy-duty ingredients within these socks that slough off all that dead skin. Even if you don’t have intensely dry feet, you’ll be surprised how much this does for you. It is a bit high maintenance, though. It takes weeks for the peeling on your feet to start, and it looks pretty horrifying. Plus, you can’t peel it like sunburn. You have to cut the loose skin slowly so that you don’t irritate yourself. It isn’t something everyone will want to put up with, but it is so worth the work if you can.
Barefoot Scientist Overnight Moisturizing Gel Socks (Shop here)
The classic advice for dry feet is to load on a heavy moisturizer and put on some socks. This is supposed to soften up the feet. And it does work but takes longer than some other methods. That is why these socks were specifically created to relax and rejuvenate the skin on the feet. They are infused with softening oils that nourish the skin and leave your feet soft and supple in the morning. This isn’t an excellent option for those who hate wearing socks to sleep, though.
Finally, a foot file will buff off all the dead skin so you can go in with a moisturizer. Plus, a foot file is great to have on hand if you get just a little bit of dryness here and there. You can find one pretty much anywhere, and they work wonders. If grating your foot on something that looks like it is meant for cheese is too much for you, a pumice stone is a gentler way to buff off dry skin and reveal smoother feet.
