I’ve recently discovered what I feel is the secret to the softest feet ever. It’s not really a secret, its common sense, but sometimes we don’t see the things that are staring us in the face. In this case, the feet.
I have suffered with un-soft feet ever since I can remember. My old solution was to get a premium pedicure before holidays where they shave off dead skin and wrap your feet in paraffin wax. Pedicures are lovely, if not a bit demoralising for the person doing them. I prefer beauty in maintenance to quick fixes, however, I hadn’t found a good footcare routine until I discovered two wonder products:
The Scholl Express Pedi, which I saw advertised all the time while I was watching Millionaire Matchmaker when I first went on maternity leave. The advert hooked me in – the model’s feet always looked so soft and smooth, then I read the reviews and had to have it. Sucker.
After using this, I was supposed to apply a foot cream. I’m not a lover of foot creams. I’ve never really had much success with them and they always smell of mint. Perhaps I just haven’t found my footcream match. What I did have was hand cream. Not just any hand cream, my current favourite since having had the baby and washing my hands multiple times a day.
Aveeno Hand Cream – the regular one. Softness! I put this on my feet every day now, then my socks. I just do this in the morning and then go about my day – I can’t wear socks in bed. It is an excellent hand cream too, in fact, one of the best I’ve ever tried, but I’ll do a separate post on hand creams another time.
No more hard skin! I can’t believe it took me so long to discover it. I have only done the Scholl pedi 3 times in 9 months and my feet are still soft. Lovely.
