DIY Foot Care

It's summer time, time for shorts, tank tops, summer dresses, flip flops, and cute little sandals. I have cute little feet, I try to keep my toes manicured but, I have a difficult time keeping the heels of my feet properly moisturized. 

I admire other people that do not have this issue but admiring them doesn't help when its time to show off MY feet. 

I use a hard pumice stone on feet everyday, which helps, but it does not solve the problem. 

I used to get regular pedicures, but money is tight around my house, and I can't bring myself to spend money on my feet. I have a foot scraper but I've gotten overzealous with the tool and scraped off too many layers of skin. NOT COOL

I also have a pedegg, but I seem to have the same results as my pumice stone. It works but not as well as I need it to.



I assume all of you are going through the same issues that I am. Lets attack this problem feet first. 

I found and tried all of these foot scrubs, soaks, moisturizers, and peels. They all worked and now my feet are kissable. 

Enjoy these DIY feet treatments and wear your flip flops and sandals with pride this summer.
