A pedicure and painted toe nails are essential for pretty feet. Here in Los Angeles I wear sandals pretty much year round, so keeping my feet in good condition is a necessity. Sadly, I can barely paint nails on my hands, and doing a pedicure by myself is pretty much mission impossible. I’ve tried and I’ve failed, so off to the salon I go. I love having my nails and toes done professionally, but I have neither the money nor the time for a weekly pedicure. I like to keep my feet looking as lovely as possible for as long as possible between monthly visits to the salon and I’ve learned that by using the right products my freshly painted and scrubbed feet can stay pretty for many weeks. Here are my favorite beauty products for the feet.
Beauty Products for the Feet
On the top left is a small tube of Kerasal. It claims to be a “richly concentrated foot ointment” and a “one step exfoliating moisturizing therapy”. It’s both. Rub some of this thick, greasy substance on your feet at night and in the morning they will be baby soft. The salicylic acid in the formula removes those dead skin cracks that pop up your heels. The stuff doesn’t have much of a smell, which is nice, but it is very oily. Sometimes I put thin socks on my feet after application to keep the grease from spreading.
On the right of the photo is another product that works almost as well as Kerasal but is much easier to rub into the feet and isn’t greasy. Miracle Foot Repair Cream definitely improves the look of my feet and removes a lot of the dry skin. The only drawback is the smell, which I don’t love. It also contains some salicylic acid, but they don’t list the percentage on the back of the package. Even so, if you don’t like greasy feet and want to try an exfoliating foot cream, this is one to try.
Finally, on the lower left of the photo is my favorite pumice stone. I’ve tried the natural one’s as well, but I always go back to the manufactured variety. They just seem to work better. In every shower I scrub the soles and heels of my feet with the pumice.
So there they are: the products I use to keep my feet looking nice between pedicures. I hate wasting money on beauty products that don’t work, but I’ve used these for years, and I can promise that they do live up to their claims.
Do you do your own pedicures or do you take your feet to a salon? Have you ever tried one Kerasal or the Miracle Foot Repair Cream? If so, what did you think of them?
