Now that summer's almost here, it's time to keep those pairs of high heels and constricting closed shoes in your closet - and go barefoot on the beach! However, if you have not been taking care of your feet and nails, how can you wear those pretty flip flops or sexy sandals? Take a look at the top three things that you can do to get your feet summer ready without having to spend a fortune in salon foot spas:
First, just like the skin on the rest of your body, the top and soles of your feet need exfoliation to remove the dead skin cells. Use a foot scrub product which is readily available in supermarkets, or give your feet a good soak and use a pumice stone on your heels. Second, before going to bed every night, slather your feet with a good moisturizing lotion. Not only will this keep the skin smooth - it is also a relaxing ritual after being up on your feet the whole day. Finally, your feet will not be summer ready unless your nails are kept short and painted with a bright, summery color.
