We often worry about getting our bodies in proper summertime shape, but, do we give our feet the same treatment? As sandal season is fast-approaching, we’re breaking down the best ways to get your feet ready for the upcoming season.
From toes to heels, get ready to shed away those boots and get sandal-ready with these expert tips and product picks!
Just like you would exfoliate your face, bringing some exfoliating action to your feet is equally important. “By exfoliating, you’ll slough off dead skin cells, revealing fresh and soft feet,” says Dr. Gary Goldfaden, Dermatologist and Founder of Goldfaden MD. To scrub away those dead skin cells, the Goldfaden MD Doctor’s Scrub makes for a great weapon of choice, as its powerful ruby crystals polish away dead surface cells and leave the skin glowing and gorgeous.
After exfoliating, to get your soles even more summer ready, Dr. Marina Peredo, Founder of Marina I. Peredo Dermatology and Spatique Medical Spa in Smithtown, NY finds that the classic pumice stone is really what it’s cracked up to be. “Using a pumice stone can be very beneficial and make your feet feel soft. Taking calluses off will allow your feet to absorb hydration more effectively,” Peredo explains.
Moisturizing is also key for soft tootsies, as drier and hotter climates tend to dry out our skin fast. To replenish lost moisture, Dr. Gary Goldfaden recommends using a heavy moisturizer for best results. “Once a week, slather your feet with a heavy moisturizer and sleep in socks. Feet will feel soft and supple in the morning,” says Goldfaden.
To achieve silky-smooth skin, the glō therapeutics Repair Cream uses nourishing ingredients for instant hydration.
Wear Sunblock… On Your Feet?
Prevention is always key in keeping your feet summer fresh, so know that little prep tricks can really work in your favor. Sunscreen is equally important for your feet, so if you’re heading out to the beach, lake or pools, applying the Goldfaden MD Sun Visor shields your skin with SPF 30. Just be sure to reapply every 30-minutes.
Use UV-Protecting Nail Top And Base Coats
And to keep your pedi vibrant and beautiful, Celebrity Nail Tech, Elle says adding a base and top coat can protect your color from fading caused by swimming pools and the sun’s UV rays. “Always use a base coat and a top coat to protect the shine and color luster of your pedicure, as sand tends to dull polish on toes. White polish will turn if you’re going to be in the sun – use a top coat that is UV-inhibited to protect color. Chlorine can turn color too, especially light, sheer colors,” Elle explains.
For that multi-tasking base and topcoat, look no further than the Dermelect Cosmeceuticals Launchpad Nail Strengthener and the High Maintenance Instant Nail Thickener for the ultimate in pedicure protection.
