Call it a foot fetish, but if you suffer from less than perfect feet like me, wearing those summer sandals is always a challenge. Not everyone was blessed with feet that is good enough for a Dr. Scholl's® ad. It's even more embarrassing if you're a bride who wants to have those cute sandals for an outdoor wedding - be it a beach or garden affair. And looking good from head to toe (literally) is a must for that special day.
While there are many products on the market for treating virtually all foot issues, over the years, only a couple have really come up as being effective for my ever ugly feet. Even after using devices such as scrubbers and stones, my efforts have become utter failures. So, after trying out these solutions below, it looks like there is finally hope for the "feet weary" like me. With a little help from these ideas, you can have your own foot spa - right at home!
Here is the line-up for all those foot woes:
Sole Searcher Foot Scrub from Origins $9.50
Personally, this product has done wonders. It smoothened the callouses on my big toes. Made it feel much softer and you no longer have to feel embarrassed about wearing open-toed sandals. The ingredients use lava granules in a white colorish cream. There's no funny smell to the cream, so it's got a lot going for it.
Peppermint Foot Lotion from Body Shop 4.2 fl oz $8.00
A subtle yet sweet and refreshing scent of peppermint is the perfect antidote for feet that need a little tender love and care. At such an affordable price, this wonderful lotion is great after a warm bath - especially if you have been standing up all day long. It's also superb for a bride who wants to have a little feet pampering.
Dr. Scholl's® For Her Foot Softening Balm $5.99
Some will either love or hate this product, but it did wonders for me. Its greasy texture might not be for everyone, so use this sparingly first. Lightly scented with lavender - it has an added benefit of not only soothing the feet, but also leaving it with a nice smell. To use it, you just massage it onto wet feet, but be careful when using it in the bathroom - hold onto something or sit down when applying it.
