Smooth feet

The only thing that looks better than a lovely pair of high heal shoes to compliment your outfit, is if you wear your lovely shoes on beautiful smooth feet. I can assure you, smooth feet doesn’t happen by themselves. You have to put in some effort to have those smooth feet that will look so beautiful in that lovely pair of sandals.

How to make sure that you have smooth feet all year round

Foot soak:

To treat yourself by incorporating into your beauty regime, a foot soak once or twice a week. That would be a good way to relax and to ease the pressures off your feet. It’s quite simple and a great way to take time out for yourself and to pamper those feet that quite often get forgotten.

Depending on the type of ailment you’re suffering from, whether it be dry or cracked skin for example, finding the correct products to use, should help significantly to soothe your feet. You should be careful what you use as some ingredients such as vinegar can dry out the skin. Make sure commercial products work on your skin by applying a bit on your skin, before making the investment.

Perhaps you may want to try some natural remedies for your foot bath. Below are a few ideas:
