Making Your Feet Sandal Worthy

After a long winter of being buried in sock and shoes, most women’s feet need some extra attention to get them sandal worthy. The dry, cracked heels, rough bottoms, and unkempt toenails can be easily remedied if you follow some simple tips. By starting early, you can make sure that your feet are worthy of those cute new sandals by the time that the warm weather begins! Where do you begin to get your feet sandal ready?

Moisturize

Feet become dry and cracked before any other part of the body. This is due to the abuse that feet get every single day. From being in sweaty shoes and socks to being on bare floors, your feet take quite a bit of abuse each and every single day. By applying a moisturizer to your feet in the morning and in the evening, you can help to keep them supple and smooth. One great tip for adding moisture to these hardworking appendages is to apply moisturizer thickly before bed and then put on socks over the moisturizer. The warmth from the socks will help the moisturizer to work even better to smooth your feet. Do not over moisturize between the toes as this can cause a fungus issue. Choose your favorite moisturizer and get those feet smooth and soft!

Pedicure Time

Whether you visit your local manicurist or you do it yourself, your toes are sure to need some attention. As SSBBW, it is sometimes difficult to give our feet the attention that they need, especially when it comes to a pedicure. If you decide to give yourself a pedicure, you will want to trim your toenails straight across, as this helps to prevent ingrown nails. Soak your feet in a little warm water to help soften up the skin and push back the cuticles with an orange stick that is easily found at your local drug store. Buff the nails and cover them with a clear nail polish or a colored polish for protection and beauty. Whether you choose to have it done by a professional or do it yourself, you will be amazed at the way that pretty feet can make you feel!

Choose the Right Shoes

Shoes that are uncomfortable and cause pain are not good for your feet no matter how cute they are. Choosing comfortable and well-fitting shoes is essential to keeping your feet free from blisters, calluses, corns, and other painful and unsightly conditions. You may be tempted to buy sandals just for their beauty, but you will regret this decision if they are not comfortable. Find sandals that combine beauty with comfort and you will be on your way to having beautiful and comfortable feet.

Even us SSBBW can have feet that are beautiful. By following the above tips, our feet can look great in those cute, new sandals just in time for the warm weather!
