Hi there! Thank you so much for checking out my blog! I truly appreciate it and I hope you enjoy!
For the longest time, my feet were pretty rough looking because I go barefoot all the time when I am at home. I wear sandals or flip flops when I go out, so earlier this year, I looked at my heels while I was out and I didn’t like how they looked. My feet were dry and needed to be pampered. A couple of days and a few dollars later, I had a two sided foot file and I was ready to tackle my feet. On one side of the file, you had a metal grater and then on the other side was a regular file. The only problem with this was after the first time I used it, the metal side (which came off so you could empty the catch) never fit back into place after I took it off to empty out the bottom. Anytime I used it, I would have to hold on to the metal part so it would stay on. The metal grate was not easy to clean at all, so it stopped working efficiently. I stopped using the foot file and it sat abandoned in a crate of other random products in my bathroom.
A few weeks ago, I went to the store and purchased a new foot file and a foot scrub in hopes of getting nice feet again. I bought the Freeman “Bare Foot” Exfoliating Foot Scrub in the scent Peppermint and Plum (smells amazing!) and a new sugar foot file from ONYX Professional. Let me tell you, these products together are amazing! The file takes all of the dead skin away and the scrub helps soften everything up!
Here is how to get your feet into tip top shape again!
- First I like to soak my feet in some warm water and body wash. My current fave is Rosé Champagne body wash from Bath and Body Works- smells so good and makes me feel refreshed and kind of feminine! Then I will take a little of the Freeman “Bare Foot” scrub and massage that all over my feet.
- Second, I pat dry my feet with a clean towel and then I use the ONYX Professional sugar foot file on my heel, around the sides, the ball of my foot, and on any callouses that are on my feet. Once that is done, I take a little water to wet my feet and then go back in with the Freeman “Bare Foot” scrub to remove any dead skin particles from the foot file.
- After I scrub my feet again, I’ll pat them dry and then take some lotion and rub that all over my feet and ankles. I massage and rub my feet and get some of the lotion soaked in, then I take a pair of socks and put those on for a while.
- A few hours later, I will grab whatever color of nail polish I like and give my toe nails a fresh coat of polish to add a touch of color to them. Since it is summer, I like vibrant pinks and blues, periwinkle, reds, and some nude shades.
There you go! Filing and scrubbing your feet really make them feel fresh and look nice. If you wear sandals, flip flops, or open toed shoes, I recommend that you try the steps above! Your feet will thank you!
