Happy Feet! Pretty Feet For Summer

It’s that time of year again for flip-flops, sandals and applying beautiful Summery nail polish. 

Visiting the nail salon each time you’d like to change a nail color may become quite expensive over time.  A less inexpensive way of cutting down that cost is basically doing it yourself.   An at home pedi-session will yield, if not close to the same results as a professional nail salon.   Here are a few tips on making your feet feel smooth, soft and pretty throughout the summer months.

  • Exfoliate, Exfoliate, And Exfoliate! Whether you use a foot scrub or a Ped Egg, removing the dead skin or callouses is key on achieving that baby soft feet.

  • Yes, the bottom of your feet may feel beautiful, but what sense does it make going through all that trouble if you don’t also attend to your toes. Take care of those cuticles and shape up those toe nails! 

  • Sometimes all your feet needs is a little moisture.  Hydration is key when is come to soft feet.  Applying oils or butters to the feet and putting on a thick sock after a refreshing bath, can help lock in moisture and make your feet feel wonderfully soft!

Now you may be in the process of removing an old polish from your toes and you noticed that one of your toenails has become a little darker in color. You begin to freak out; because you know that you have caught some type of fungus. 

No worries, if you take care of the problem early; you should be fine.

  • Make sure you wash your feet EVERY single day( YES! Also between your toes).

  • After each bath, make sure you completely dry your feet.  Keep your toenails clean and trimmed.

  • Usually an over the counter antifungal foot cream is all you may need to take care of a minor toe fungal issues.  For worst cases, you may want to visit you doctor.  He/She may prescribe a cream with a stronger dose or medication that is taken orally.

  • This is the part that might suck or can give you an excuse to go shopping. After you’ve had a foot fungus and it has been cleared up. You may have to get rid of sock, shoes and sneakers that were worn when you had the fungus because you might risk the chances of the fungus returning. 

 I hope this helps!

 Enjoy those HAPPY FEET!!!
