Top ways to treat your feet

Posted in Callus Removal |

When it comes to our pampering routines, feet are sort of the unsung heroes of the game. We walk, we pace, we climb up and down stairs and we even dance for hours on them when the occasion calls for it. So what have you done lately to treat your feet?

In light of the warmer breezes and the elevated moods that are sure to tag along with it, here are a few of the best ways to give your feet some much-needed TLC, just in time for sandal weather.

1. The one, the only, the ubiquitous pedi. Usually you hear this word in conjunction with "mani," but your hands don't have to steal any of the thunder as long as they're looking just fine. Chances are you've been tending to your hands all through winter to keep them from getting chapped, but your feet received an "out of sight, out of mind" treatment. Whether you take them to the salon or do it yourself at home, a basic pedi should always consist of soaking one's feet, clipping one's toenails, grooming any stray cuticles and lotioning them up in a rich cream (like one with shea butter). If you'd rather skip the polish color, you can apply just a clear coat, but toes always look great with a vibrant hue painted on.

2. Get a foot massage. Even if you don't care much for beautifying your feet, they'll surely thank you for this one. Most of the time, a professional is the only person who might be willing to straight up massage your feet for a full half hour, but if you can talk a friend or lover into doing it, more power to you. Just make sure they apply the right pressure along the most stressed areas of your feet - your heels, the balls of your feet, your ankles and even between your toes.

3. Clear away all of those calluses with an at-home microdermabrasion product. Many leading companies make products that are designed specifically for the face or body, but blinc's resurf.a.stic treatment comes in a specialized version to specifically target calluses. Unlike many other tools designed to remove calluses, resurf.a.stic works to soften, reduce and ultimately remove calluses without causing any undue pain or irritation in the process. Using the world's first and only "microdermhydration" product, resurf.a.stic offers professional-quality microdermabrasion combined with a built-in hydration treatment, all in the convenience of an easy-to-use stick form.
