Okay, okay, so unless you live somewhere other than the UK, there’s a very good chance that getting your feet into sandals is the last thing you want to be doing at the moment, but we promise, warm weather is definitely on its way! Rather than a mad rush to get your feet into flip-flop wearing condition, we suggest starting now so that when the hot weather finally hits you can slip your summer shoes on without a worry. Here are some products which might help:
One of the best ways to soften the hard skin on your feet, prior to removal, is by soaking in the bath and this super soak from Elemis is a great way to enhance the skin-softening power of the water. It contains energising and uplifting extracts of birch, juniper, clove, alpine lavender, wild thyme and blue chamomile, combined with sea salt to warm the muscles and recharge the body.
Once your feet are soaked and the hard skin softened, giving them a thorough brushing with Elemis’ Body Detox Skin Brush will help to slough away the layers of hard skin which can make the feet look dry and unsightly. Regular brushing will prevent the build-up of hard skin and will improve the texture and tone of your skin.
Moisturising should be a daily activity, but often people forget the driest areas of their body such as their feet. This body milk is light enough to be used on a daily basis but offers a rich wash of moisture to the skin, especially areas such as the feet, knees and elbows. It has a velvety texture and moisturises deeply, reviving dry skin in just one application.
This cream from Elemis is designed specifically for your feet and contains shea butter and jojoba oil which intensely moisturise the skin, melting in beautifully. It contains a number of essential oils such as patchouli and jojoba which as well as adding to the overall effect of the moisturisation, also have aromatherapy benefits to increase your feelings of wellbeing.
If you’re prone to fungal issues on your feet, as many people are, this spray can help to prevent such issues thanks to its powerful combination of antiseptic and antifungal ingredients. It also provides a deodorising effect for the feet, cooling and refreshing them on hot days and killing the bacteria which can cause odours.
