Sandal season is finally here, and the last thing you want is to feel self-conscious showing off your heels and toes. While salon pedicures are a treat, time and budget constraints can make weekly visits hard to keep up. We suggest a little DIY job right in the comfort of your own home to keep your feet prepped and polished in all their summer-loving glory. Ahead, six easy steps to get you started.
Epsom Salt Soaking Solution
1. Relax & Soak
Prep your feet by soaking them for 20 minutes in a tub of warm water and half a cup of Epsom salts, which help soften the skin and eliminate odor.
Foot Peel Lavender
Got a case of gross calluses? Try this exfoliant that promises to leave your feet as soft as—you guessed it—a baby's. Steep in the treatment-filled boot for one hour, then wash off the gel. You'll see results in three to seven days as dead skin cells naturally peel off.
