The “Summer” Series – Happy Feet

Definitely feeding those with a foot fetish today, but I wanted to do a little post for you about a part of my summer body preparation that sits (metaphorically) very close to my heart.  I don’t love feet, especially not my own, so once the summer months start to come around I start to really start looking after my feet to avoid feeling insecure abut them! (This is majorly important as I live in sandles… honestly, if I didn’t have to wear shoes i wouldn’t so they’re the closest type of footwear to none! But anyway, I digress…)

I start by taking a really long hot soak in the tub! Really warm, plenty of bubbles and I put a little bit of any random bath oil I have lying around into the mix just to make my whole body really nice and soft! Post soak, I dry my feet and use my Body Shop foot file (the tough side) to file away any dry skin on the bottom of my feet.

I then apply the Heel Genius Foot Cream by Soap and Glory. I do sit there for a fair while with my feet covered in this and whilst it all soaks in I trim and file the nails. I then paint my toe nails, more often than not it’s likely to be a crazy bright colour (this post features War Paint by Topshop) as it just contributes to that summer feeling!

I try not to do this whole routine more than once every two weeks, as soaking my feet in cream can cause them to blister more easily – owies!

Ironically my feet are covered in cuts and blisters at this current point in time, but hopefully by next week they will be all better and I can treat my feet again in preparation for my holiday!

    I'm glad people are starting to post about feet a little more now we're nearing (so called) Summer. I think people forget how much we use our feet and that they need to be cared for. I might try out the Soap and Glory cream πŸ™‚ xx

    I love doing pedicures all year round and I have a foot spa specifically for that reason, but it's so much nicer when it comes to summer and you can actually get your pretty pampered feet out for all to see! xo
