Feet that don't make you go eep!



Hello Lovelies,

I know, I know ! No one wants to talk about feet, whether it's weird lumps and bumps, that look like they belong to some extraterrestrial creature, or ridiculously dry and cracked heels, feet aren't always the most pleasant thing to show off, let alone talk about, particularly in Winter. When I think of cold weather, I think of dry skin, in my case, extremely dry feet. Nice feet are something that I have not been blessed with, especially with the fact that I'm not very good at taking care of my feet - don't worry, I'm not going to put you through seeing my hideous feet haha. Instead, I thought I'd take you through my routine of how I keep my feet looking as nice as possible, all year round !



As I do this routine after my nightly shower, I make sure my feet are completely dry and that there is no trace of moisture. I then take my Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi* and start to exfoliate the dry patches on my feet, focusing on my heels and the outside edge of my foot, as that's where I get the most dry skin. I'll go over the area for a few seconds - making sure not to over exfoliate - and check every couple of seconds to see if I have reached my desired level of smoothness. Obviously my feet aren't going to be as soft and smooth as a baby's bum, but as long as there's no rough and overly dry patches, then it's okay with me !



Once my feet are nice and smooth, I next take my Scholl Eulactol Heel Balm Gold* and massage it into my heels, as well as any other particularly dry patches that I have. If you're like me and often have extremely dry heels, this will be a life saver ! With a non-greasy formula, the balm soaks in right away. To get a bit "science-y" for a second, the balm contains Urea which is a humectant, this means that it not only absorbs water, but it also has a very high water content itself, this helps minimise the water lost through the skin, helping keep the skin supple and well moisturised. With the use of this balm, there are visible results in just 3 days ! Scholl not only has some great clinically proven products to help relieve and heal cracked heels, but they also feature some amazing tips on how to keep your feet looking their best !



Finally I finish off with a good slather of moisturiser. I'm currently loving the Premium Spa SOS Moisture Balm in Frangipani and Coconut. It not only has a really thick - almost mousse like - texture, but it smells incredible ! Once my heel balm has soaked in, I then apply a generous amount of this to my feet paying particular attention to my more dry spots - heels, balls of my feet.... who am I kidding, my entire foot ! After applying my moisturiser I put on a thick pair of socks and sleep with them, to wake up to gorgeously smooth and supple feet.

I hope you guys enjoyed my feet saving routing and were hopefully able to pick up some tips. If there are any tips and tricks you have, please do feel free to comment them below ! I'd love to find out more :)

Have a fabulous week and I will speak to you all soon !
