Ready your feet for open sandals
Show off your soft and supple feet to the world in toe revealing flats
Open sandals are a classic for a reason — not only do they look delicate and elegant, they pair perfectly with both Indian and western wear. However, cracked feet and scaly skin is not what you would want people to notice when you strut around in these pretty sandals. Worry not, these great tips will keep your feet looking great, always!
Slather a generous dose of good moisturiser at least twice a day to ensure that your skin is soft and supple. For best results, apply the moisturiser right after a bath; the open pores soak in the moisturiser well.
Remove dead skin regularly by exfoliating with a good scrub. Alternatively, you could use a pumice stone.
If you prefer to indulge yourself, get a pedicure at the salon. Twice a month is great for keeping your feet soft and supple.
An indisputable rule of wearing open flats is that they’re to be worn without socks. This could, however, lead to an embarrassing situation if your feet smell. A very effective way to counter this is to soak your feet in warm water and rinse it with mouthwash. Another useful way is to dab your toes with cotton wool dipped in surgical spirit after a shower.
It’s time to say goodbye to painful and ugly corns. Soaking your feet in hot water and gently rubbing the affected areas with a pumice stone will help.
This one’s a killer hack! Rub a little coconut oil or olive oil on the inner lining of your shoes and allow the leather to absorb it over a day. This will soften the leather and keep shoe bites at bay.
