Getting Your Feet Sandal-Ready

It’s time to transition from winter’s full-coverage footwear to summer’s strappy sandals. Don’t be caught with unattended feet this year!

A recent article from Stylecaster provides some good suggestions for prepping your feet for summer. In the article, spa director Shane Upson and nail technician Dulsi Nunez give insight into footcare and pampering.

Socks in Summer? Yep.

While you may expect to ditch your daily socks in the summer, Nunez suggests grabbing a pair of special foot softening socks if you’re hoping to heal dry feet. With a gel lining that’s infused with moisturizing oils and antioxidants, a night in these socks will intensely moisturize your feet.

Don’t want to order special softening socks? Get a great foot cream, apply before bed, then slip on any socks you like for similar benefits.

Either way, treat yourself to overnight foot moisturizing regularly so you can leave dry, cracked heels behind and step out with soft, supple skin instead. It’s particularly important in summer since feet are far more prone to dryness and cracking in summer’s open shoe styles!

Get the Right Buffing Tool

Nunez also mentions that the use of a proper foot tool is a must. Pumice stones are popular, but they gather bacteria and simply aren’t particularly effective. A true foot buffer is a better choice, and you can find some great options at large cosmetic retails shops. Diamond foot buffers are super effective as well as easy to clean.

More Foot Softening Options

If you’re up for treating your feet at the spa, Upson urges people to consider a paraffin treatment. The feet are submerged in warm paraffin with mineral oils; the warm wax opens the pores so the oil can sink in.

For those interested in doing a home treatment for a DIY pedicure, a simple foot bath of warm whole milk is an easy option—just be sure the milk isn’t too hot! Lactic acid is an exfoliant that will help freshen skin.

When to Get a Pro’s Help

There are times when spa treatments, either at home or in your favorite mani/pedi salon, simply aren’t enough to restore health to the feet. If you have painful calluses, feet that are so cracked they’re bleeding, any type of fungus, bunions, or ingrown toenails, it’s important seek a foot doctor’s help. They’ll help you resolve these issues safely (and much more quickly) with medical-grade treatments.
