Are Your Feet Sandal Ready?
How do you get your feet ready for summer? The armor of woolen socks and heavy boots has been shed and now it is just a leather pair of sandals or a kicky pair of flip flops between you and the pavement. To showcase your summer style your feet may need some serious maintenance. You could schedule a pedicure, but if you haven’t the time or would rather spend your extra cash on a summertime getaway, here are some easy to follow tips that will have your winter weary feet sandal ready in no time.
Rub a Dub Dub
All toes in the tub, as well as your feet and ankles. Winter can do a real number on your feet and legs, leaving them rough, dry and a little neglected – out of sight, out of mind. But now that you are eager to expose those toes, consider first a nice soak in Gewohl Foot Bath. Fragrant with rosemary, thyme and lavender oils, this gentle but effective foot soak softens any callused or rough areas and leaves feet sweet smelling and cleansed. Follow up with products from Camillen 60, a quality skin purveyor, to slough off the dead skin cells and roughened areas. Formulated with pomegranate seed oil, a powerful antioxidant, not only will ground in dirt and flakey skin float away, the scrub also improves the condition of the newly revealed skin, fighting against the aging effect of free radicals.
Attend to Problem Areas
If rough skin remains even after exfoliation, take out your tool box of foot care accessories. Denco is your answer again, with a full line of foot smoothers ready to remove any remaining layers of thickened skin or unsightly corns or calluses. Then take a close look at your toenails. If some winter grime remains, Valentino Garemi's store has a toenail brush perfect for scrubbing away the last bits of dirt and dead skin, readying your toes for a nice DIY pedicure.
Clip and Smooth
Denco comes to the rescue with a range of efficient clippers, nippers and scissors to get your toenails ready for the final reveal. If nails are a bit brittle and fragile, condition with Gehwol Nailcare, a great product that will encourage healthy growth and protect and restore a smoother look. It is your decision then whether to gild your toenails with polish or go au natural, but either way your feet are ready for the last step before you slip on those sandals.
Treat Those Feet
Once your feet are smooth and clear of the bumps and lumps that were hiding under the socks and your toe nails are twinkling, treat them to a moisturizing and conditioning massage with one of the many soothing foot creams or foams in our collections. Gehwol, Allpresan, Camillen and Allpresan all offer an array of high quality foot lotions to maintain your pampered toes and prevent future callus buildup and dry, rough skin. If you are looking for something new in foot care, be sure to browse our Camillen 60 range, foot care based on the power of the delicate chamomile flower, a mighty ally in keeping your feet well cared for in all seasons.
Now hit the pavement, lawn or beach with those sandals. You are ready.
