Summer’s just around the corner, and you know what that means? Yep, let’s all breathe a collective sigh of both relief and horror as we say it: flip-flop season! These magical little pieces of footwear offer us a major source of comfort and also send our appearance-conscious selves into action mode.
You see, lovelies, getting into shape for summer doesn’t stop with your exercise routine, lovelies, it extends all the way down to your feet. So if you’re freaking out a little after a rough summer turned your feet into rough gross nastiness, you’re not alone. But fret not, tootsies, BeautyStat has compiled a list of some of our go-to solutions for the nasty feet syndrome, and by that we mean “Oh no, my feet are so dry, flakey, gross and nasty.”
Bliss Softening Socks, $48, blissworld.com
Quite possibly the most pleasant treat for our feet, the gel lining of these socks smoothes and hydrates our hard, dry tootsies, turning them divinely soft! Plus, we think we’re pretty darn cute too.
Thymes Essential Foot Scrub, $16, thymes.com
We love the great exfoliation we get with this ingredient-conscious scrub. Paraben-free and filled with healthy ingredients like sunflower oil and vitamin E, we simply cannot resist its power.
Aubrey Organics Neat Feet Foot Scrub, $8.67, aubrey-organics.com
This natural foot scrub has quickly made its way into our weekly exfoliating routine. We’re digging its ingredients (Camomile oil and organic aloe) and enjoy the moist, non-gritty feel it gives our feet in the shower.
Lush Fair Trade Foot Lotion, $21.95, lushusa.com
We can’t decide what we love better: the delicious peppermint smell of this lotion, its sweet pink color, or the way it makes our feet feel. Oh well, who said we had to choose, right?
Philosophy Soul Owner Exfoliating Foot Cream, $14, philosophy.com
We were told we’d fall in love with this little baby, and fallen we have. Our dry, tired feet are instantly rejuvenated with one swipe of this emollient foot cream.
PedEgg, $10, cvs.com
Sometimes a girl needs a little more help than a lotion, and it’s at moments like this that we call upon our PedEgg. This cute little tool is more than a pretty face, lovelies, it helps slough away dead skin cells and nastiness off our heels when we need it most.
