Your Guide To Getting Baby Soft Feet
Daily Foot Soak
Prepare a foot bath by filling a bowl with two-thirds warm water and one cup of Epsom salt, but you can replace the Epsom salt with apple cider vinegar which removes dead skin cells. You can add one tablespoon of baking soda and drops of essential oils to remove foot odor and let your feet soak for 20 minutes.
Exfoliate Your Feet
Using a pumice stone daily to get rid of dead skin cells and calluses. Before exfoliating, soak your feet in warm water for 5 to 10 minutes, then wet the pumice stone and lightly rub it against any rough patches until you no longer see dead skin cells. Don’t forget to cleanse the stone after each session.
File Your Feet
Using a foot file after a shower is a great way to remove dead skin cells, but be careful to not over-file which can weaken skin tissues and lead to infection. Once your feet are completely dry, use the foot file over thickened or calloused skin, and once finished, follow up with a foot cream so the calluses won’t return.
Moisturize Your Feet
Whether you favor petroleum jelly, cream, or lotion, it’s crucial to moisturize your feet to prevent cracked heels or calluses. The best time to moisturize your feet is at night after a shower or after exfoliating, and you can make a DIY foot mask using hydrating ingredients like yogurt, olive oil, or brown sugar.
Drink Water
If you truly want moisturized feet, drinking water is the solution because it nourishes and hydrates you from the inside out. Keep in mind that feet aren’t supposed to be as soft as a baby’s bottoms, because your feet are meant to be thick enough to absorb stress and protect your feet from injuries.
