Book yourself in for a massage or reflexology session. Just think how lovely it will be to lie back and have your feet massaged and moisturized! Take some time to relax and enjoy being pampered.
2. Go Barefoot

It’s really healthy for the feet to go without shoes sometimes. So take a walk in the sand, feel the grass between your toes, or simply walk around the house barefoot. Sure, your feet will get grubby, but you can always wash them!
3. Ration Those Heels

Yes, high heels are sexy, but there’s nothing sexy about foot problems! Instead of wearing heels all day, every day, ration your use and mix them with pretty flats or low heels. Your feet will thank you in the long run.
4. Get a Pedicure

Are the soles of your feet looking like an elephant’s hide? Methinks that pedicure is a little overdue … So take yourself off and get that rough skin sorted. Have your nails done as well, so you won’t be embarrassed to show them off in sandals!

There’s something so nice about dipping your feet in water – in hot weather, obviously. Find a beach, river, fountain, or even a bowl of water, and enjoy that lovely fresh feeling.

Here’s a really simple way to treat your feet. Smother them with moisturizer before you go to bed, pull on a pair of socks, and leave overnight. Voila – lovely soft feet when you wake up!
7. Home Spa

Can’t afford a salon treatment? Why not buy a home spa kit and do it yourself! To make it more fun, you could invite some of your friends and turn it into a pamper party.

Polish is cheap! Make the most of the warm weather and paint your toenails. Your feet look good and you feel good. Try a bold color to really stand out.
