Living in the tropics, you can correctly assume that sandals dominate my shoe collection. When I feel like adding few inches to my petite stature, I wear wedges. But in most days though, I prefer flat sandals that expose my toes and ankles. Comfort before anything else babe!
This leads me to my next point, my precious feet need to look just as fabulous! Overkill, vain, OC, call me whatever you want but I seriously dread cracked soles. So whether you're prepping up for summer or just want to be sandal-ready anytime, here are ways to keep your feet in tiptop shape.
1. Exfoliate to slough off dead skin cells.
If you prefer simple DIY, mix olive oil and brown sugar to create a moisturizing foot scrub. Here's a tutorial if you're interested.
Now if you want spa-quality pedi at home, Emjoi Micro-Pedi Nano ($24.95) maybe your answer. I received one to try out. In a nutshell, it's a sleek, compact home pedicure tool that painlessly removes dead skin cells and calluses. It has a micro-mineral roller that spins 30 times a second that pulverize rough skin. I was honestly surprised with the amount of flecks this tool generated, considering that I take care of my feet on a regular basis!
|It requires two AA batteries. Very easy to use and ideal for travel too!|
Here's a before and after photo of my feet. It's not rocket science but offhand, you can tell that "after" looks obviously smoother.
2. Moisturize with cream. Make it habit to moisturize your feet after shower and before you call it a night to prevent dry cracked soles. Do this religiously and your feet will thank you.
3. Paint your toes bright! Call me partial but whenever I see a woman with great-looking pedi, I immediately think that she does take care of herself. It's the little things, mind you. If you're like me who prefers DIY, just soak your feet in warm water for five minutes, towel-try, remove old nail polish, cut and/or file nail, then paint to your heart's desire!
4. Have fun with sandals. Bling, thong, leather, rubber, jelly, they all come in gazillion styles and colors. Remember, happy feet, happy life!
