With the weather slowly but surely warming up, many of us are toying with the idea of shedding our winter tights and boots in favour of sandals and peep-toes. Unfortunately a long winter of neglect can leave our feet looking less than desirable, so before you unleash those toes – give them a little TLC.
If you’re in need of a professional touch, book yourself in for a pedicure with a beautician near you and simply sit back and enjoy. If you want to take the DIY approach however, you’ll need to arm yourself with some tools…
Giving your feet a boost of moisture is key at this point. We love Clarins Foot Beauty Treatment Cream as it not only moisturises and nourishes, it also helps to reduce swelling caused by warm temperatures and strengthens nails.
For those with cracked, damaged heels – try This Works Perfect Heels Rescue Balm. This intensive formula helps to repair the skin’s natural barrier function to encourage healing while lemon oils battle chronic dryness.
If you are in need of a quick freshen up in the aroma department, Liz Earle’s Foot Spritzer offers a wonderful blend of essential oils to reduce odour-causing bacteria and keep feet shower-fresh all day.
Your last step should be to show those nails some love. Start with some Cowshed Apricot Nourishing Cuticle Oil followed by a coat of Jessica Flawless Basecoat to hide ridges and imperfections. Finish off with a coat of your favourite colour varnish – we’re loving pastel hues for spring, try a shade from Barry M’s Silk Nail Effects range.
