Get your feet ready for sandal weather pronto!
Summer is here, along with the need for a good pedicure. Unfortunately, no amount of scrubbing by the most amazing manicurist can make those winter feet super smooth. The only way to get them baby smooth is with a foot mask. Peeling foot masks are made with alpha hydroxy acids that penetrate deep into the skin, removing callouses and dead skin.
This mask by Earth Therapeutics (I may get a commission from this link.) is enriched with Tea Tree Oil, adding moisture during the peeling process. I left my mask on for about an hour and my feet felt “cold” for a few days after. Kind of like if you put Ben-Gay on your feet. It takes about a week for the peeling to start and it’s kind of gross for a few days – wear socks to catch the skin. I also used a pumice stone to get some of the skin off, even though it says not to do that.
After the peeling stopped, all my dry skin was gone and my feet actually looked younger! It even took a layer off my toenails, making them smoother. I am definitely going to use this mask again when my feet get gross again.
You can find these masks for around three dollars at Wal-mart, Harris Teeter and other big box stores. ULTA has them in a two-pack for around $10.
