Get Your Feet Ready for Summer: Essential Foot Care Tips

With summer approaching, it's time to swap out the boots for sandals and flip flops. However, exposing your feet to rough surfaces can lead to dryness, calluses, and cracked heels. To keep your feet Instagram-ready, we've rounded up some tips for good foot care.

  1. Start with a foot soak in warm water to soften the skin and prepare it for exfoliation. For added luxury, add a few drops of hydrating oil like Timeless IV.

  2. Use a gentle scrub to remove rough skin and spot-treat calluses with a pumice stone. Avoid overdoing it, as this can cause thicker skin to develop.

  3. Don't forget to exfoliate above the ankle as well for smooth skin all around the foot.

  4. After exfoliating, seal in moisture with a hydrating cream or oil. Apply deeply-absorbing oil with restorative vitamins and antioxidants to damp skin and massage well into the cuticles. Finish with a nourishing moisturizer to protect and heal the skin.

  5. Wear sunscreen on your feet, especially if you're spending time at the beach or pool. The skin on your feet is just as susceptible to sun damage as the rest of your body.

  6. Keep your toenails clean and trimmed to prevent ingrown toenails and other infections.

  7. Avoid going barefoot in public areas like gyms, pools, and showers to reduce the risk of fungal and bacterial infections.

  8. Finally, invest in comfortable and supportive footwear to prevent foot pain and injuries. With these foot care tips, you can enjoy the summer sun without sacrificing the health of your feet.
