No one likes crusty feet. Whether you want your feet to look good because you want to wear open heels or you’re looking to make your feet as attractive as possible for your partner or you just want to feel good in your own skin, there are several things that you can do and incorporate to your routine in order to get perfectly smooth feet.
First, it is important to understand why your feet get dry and crusty. If you’re used to wearing closed shoes, socks and especially heels, the friction that is caused by walking can lead to the accumulation of dead skin on your feet which results in dryness as well as rough patches mainly around the heel area. This can also be caused by lack of care, moisture and scrubbing. Additionally, note that people who tend to stand or walk for long periods of time are more likely to have dry feet than those who don’t.
Along with moisturizing which is a crucial step if you’re thinking about rejuvenating your skin, having an exfoliating routine is very important as the two go hand in hand. In fact, exfoliating is not only important because it removes dead skin and makes your feet softer, but, by doing that it also allows your moisturizer to penetrate your skin more easily and work more effectively.To exfoliate your feet properly, you can start by filling a container with water and soaking your feet in it for at least 20 minutes. Once that is done you can dry your feet before massaging them gently with a scrub (link to scrub). After this step is complete, you can rinse your feet and apply a cream or a lotion depending on your preference.
