So I was lounging around with my barefooted friends at a casual get-together, chatting and sipping on wine as I reclined on the lounge, I decided to join the rest of the party and slip my shoes off, when – to my horror – I noticed them: my horrendous feet. Cracked and dry with manky overgrown nails – they looked like something straight out of a horror flick. I quickly hid them away.
If you’ve been in a similar situation, you know the feeling of anxiety when you realise you might have to bare your un-show-worthy feet in public.
Banish embarrassing feet with our simple foot care treatment for perfect feet and pretty toes you’ll actually want to show off!

1. Invest in a pumice
At only a few dollars outlay, a good pumice will save you from embarrassing feet moments and prolong the period between salon pedicure treatments. Store it in the shower and use once a week while feet are soft from the warm water to scrub away dead skin cells and prevent the build-up of thick, hard skin.

2. Smell-errific feet
For sweet-smelling, perfect feet a daily moisturising routine is a must. Splurge on a delicious smelling, rich, luxurious cream that will melt into your skin and keep your feet soft and fragrant for hours, like Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Crème.

3. Pretty toes
Let your toes steal the show by keeping them clean and filed and beautifying with a fun polish every so often. Keeping a file and toenail clippers in the bathroom is an easy way to remind yourself to give them a weekly shape and polish. Make a routine of it by choosing a weekly TV show that signals it’s time for foot care and set yourself up in front of the tele with your toolkit.
