Summer feet ready: Do you get goosebumps at the word feet?
Summer feet ready: Time to take a good look at your walkers and give them a pampering session.
Be nice to them because they take you everywhere.
Feet – just like your hands – deserve some extra attention this time of year. They are still your business card in all that cool (bare) summer footwear. A visit to the pedicure does wonders, especially if she immediately smears a lick of paint on your nails. But you also come a long way yourself.

Summer feet ready
1. Give your feet air
Literally. First of all, no foot is happy to be stuffed in too-tight shoes in warm weather. Let those feet flutter and put on flip flops or peep toes. A little fresh air also benefits the smell of your feet. Don’t forget to change shoes every day!
2. Through the car wash with scrub
Dry feet especially love to be exfoliated. It makes them soft and smooth and you will see that they look a lot better afterward. You can exfoliate your feet with a special foot scrub (often with a hint of peppermint in it, for a fresh feeling) or with regular body scrub. You can also easily make your own foot scrub, from a little coconut oil and sugar. Do you want a nice scent? Then you can add some lavender oil to it.
3. Pumice stone
With a block of pumice stone you can easily remove calluses. Make sure to soak your feet well in a warm bath so that the skin becomes soft. Then you can attack the calluses with the pumice stone. Sand!
4. Grease them
Lubricating your feet every day with cream makes them wonderfully soft and ensures that the soles of your feet no longer look so dry.
5. Foot mask
Look, you’ve probably smeared countless masks on your face. But have you ever tried a foot mask? It is relaxing and gives your skin a boost. If you have very dry feet, you can also purchase a greasy foot cream, rub your feet liberally and then sleep with cotton socks. The next morning the cream is absorbed and your feet are as soft as a feather.
