During the Winter months my feet get a little neglected. I tend to wear socks or tights all day, everyday, and therefore never really feel the need to keep them up to scratch. However, the past few weeks I have got into a little routine of caring for my feet and they are already looking so much better. The three products that I like to use are the Sanctuary Spa Luxury foot polish, the Ecotools foot brush and pumice and the Palmer's Foot Magic.
Firstly I apply the Sanctuary Luxury Foot Polish to my feet, focusing on the areas that are particularly dry. This polish contains finely milled pumice, which begins the process of lifting those dead skin cells from your feet. It has a refreshing scent of tea tree oil with a hint of peppermint, which leaves your skin feeling refreshed and revived. I rub this into my skin, but do not wash it off, instead I use the following product.
The Ecotools Foot Brush and Pumice has two side, a soft bristle brush and a pumice made from recycled glass. Firstly, I use the brush to to work alongside the polish. I have found that using them both together helps to give my feet a thorough scrub, prepping them nicely for the pumice. Once scrubbed I wash away the polish and buff my heels with the pumice (make sure you have wet the stone so it does not catch). This really helps to remove the dead skin to leave a nice smooth layer. I find this brush very easy to use, and as you can see from the pictures, very effective!
Lastly, I apply Palmers Cocoa Butter in Foot Magic. This stuff really is magic and I love it. It comes out of the tube as a thick gel and melts when it comes into contact with your skin. It has a very refreshing scent, a combination of peppermint oil and cocoa butter, and is enriched with Vitamin E and mango butter. It does not leave an oily residue and it leaves your skin feeling moisturised, soft and smooth. If you are in need of a more intense treatment, apply to your feet at night with cotton socks.
I have been doing this once or twice week and there is such an improvement in the soles of my feet.
What do you like to use on your feet?
