Feet Treat

Considering they carry a rather heavy load on a daily basis many of us overlook taking care of our feet in favour of spending money on pampering somewhere else a little more on show.

If like me your tootsies are currently looking a little bit too much like you would blend in perfectly with Frodo Baggins and his Hobbit companions then perhaps it is time to release the foot pumice from it’s chains and pamper your feet back to perfection.

Burt's Bees

We suggest you start off proceedings by soaking your feet in some nice warm water using The Body Shop’s Peppermint Reviving Foot Soak (£7 per 200g) for ten to fifteen minutes. Once the skin on your heels has softened a little we then move on to stage two…pumicing. Dry the feet a little and then use your weapon of choice (ours is the PedEgg £9.99, which catches the dead skin in a nifty compartment.) to file away any dead skin.

Let’s not beat around the bush, the process is no picnic and it certainly isn’t something to do in front of the boyfriend but it is essential and oddly satisfying nonetheless. Dead skin gone and you can move onto the nice part. There are absolutely tonnes of fantastic foot moisturisers and lotions out there, but our champion has to be Burt’s Bees ‘Thouroughly Theraputic’ Honey and Bilberry Foot crème (£11.99) , which smells so ridiculously divine that you might end up putting it in your mouth.

We probably don’t need to tell you that Honey is one of mother natures most wonderful ingredients, adding softness and moisture to anything it touches, but we will anyway.

The lotion also contains three exotic and rich butters – jojoba, cupuacu and macadamia as well as a fruit acid complex which will nourish and soften dry, rough heels. Rub your chosen crème into the heels and balls of your feet and ‘et voila’…three steps to sweet feet heaven.
