HOW TO GET YOUR FEET SUMMER READY


Good morning guys! Let's start off the day by talking about feet *gross I know*. This isn't the most glamorous subject to talk about I'l admit... but I'm pretty sure some of you are in need of getting your feet summer ready! Us ladies can get so wrapped up with ensuring that our hair, make up & tan looks good that we tend to neglect other beauty regimes such as looking after our feet. And with summer approaching, your skin can dry out a lot quicker - especially your feet! So make sure you keep your tootsies looking fabulous & feeling super smooth by updating your pedicure routine and rocking those sandals.

One huge no no is heels that are full of dry, dead skin... leaving them looking rough and cracked. This really does not look pretty when you're wearing your fav summery shoes! I can't express how much you need to look after your feet and ensure that you get rid of any excess skin!! My go to tool for this is Scholl Pedi Velvet Smooth Electronic Pedicure Foot File. It's currently on offer at boots online for £30 which is so affordable! It has kept my feet looking and feeling so soft! No more having to scrub vigorously at your feet to ensure smoothness as it's rotating exfoliating head has made my life a whole lot easier.   

With the turn of a switch, the rotating head starts to exfoliate and buff the skin (feels kind of like sand paper - except it's not painful). You are able to visibly see all the dead skin cells float away *gross yet so satisfying*. Your feet are left feeling silky smooth - using this 3 times a week or however many times to suit you to get the best results. *My tip would be to gently/lightly touch your feet with the tool as if you press down to hard the head can't rotate correctly*.

After I finish using this, I always use a good foot cream such as Soap and Glory's Heel Genius. This acts as a foot mask that soaks into your skin and leaves them super smooth. Best results are when you massage this cream onto your heels (generously) then wear a pair of cotton socks or gel socks and let the cream soak over night. It smells great too!

No need to feel self conscious about your feet when wearing sandals now! Have you tried this foot file before? Any other recommendations on how to keep your feet looking summer ready?

With love,
