Discount Solution - Fabulous Feet Forever

A good friend asked me about foot care recently and I was inspired to share my favorite method for keeping feet looking fabulous.

If you are struggling with 'cheese rind heels', here are a few tips to keep your feet looking and feeling great – all the time!

Depending on how bad your feet are to begin with, this beauty treatment can cost you as little as the price of a brush to as much as the price of a foot-treatment plus one brush.

Rule Number One: Toss The File

Never ever ever use a foot file! The way this instrument 'rips surface of the skin' will only make things worse.

File usage encourages an increased production of hardened skin. I have this on good authority from a couple of foot-treating pros.

If your heels are really bad, start by getting the built-up, hardened skin removed by a professional. When that's done, you will be able to keep your heels 'rind-free' with the following method.

Brush Your Feet Every Day

Find a brush that fits well in your hand with bristles as stiff as a nail brush. If you can get an oversized nail brush, that's ideal (see mine below).

Brush your heels (and wherever else the hard skin build-up happens) vigorously for a minute or 2.

The stiff bristles of the brush will remove dead skin and the brushing will encourage circulation in the feet (which also keeps hard skin build-up at bay).

Don't forget the toenails – brushing lightly here will keep the cuticles back. It's best to brush at the end of your shower/bathing routine, when the skin is softened and the dead skin is easier to remove.

Tip: wash the brush regularly to keep it smelling sweet.

Then Soften

Finish by applying a body butter, cream or lotion to your feet. Give yourself a couple of minutes to massage each foot and work the moisturizer in. Put on a pair of socks. Even if you plan on wearing sandals that day, 10-15 minutes with socks will allow the moisturizer to soak in completely.

Make this 5-minute routine a daily habit and your feet will repay you in spades by looking and feeling fabulous – forever.

Hi Lisa

This tip works. I have followed your instructions for one month now, and my heels look so much better. Most of the hard skin has vaanished.

Thank you for the tip!

Love, Rikke
