Women love to pamper their feet, and why not? As long as you don’t have poor circulation, or any open wounds or other obvious problems, here is a protocol to make your feet feel their best. If you have had a surgical procedure, refer to the specific instructions provided, but if you are just looking for a way to make your feet look and feel better, give this simple 3 step approach a try.

1. Soak your feet.

Podiatrists around the world love the Epsom salt soak. Fill a foot-soaking tub with warm water and add ¼ cup of Epsom Salts, available at just about any pharmacy or grocery store. Soak for at least 10 minutes, as this helps soften the feet.

2. Scrub your feet.

Mix ½ cup of kosher salt and ½ cup of olive oil into a paste, and gently apply to the heels and rest of the foot. Gently scrub your feet using a warm water dampened old terry cloth wash cloth, as this exfoliates the dead skin and the olive oil moisturizes.

3. Soften your feet.

Wipe honey all over your feet, then let it settle for 10 to 15 minutes. You can then rinse off in the shower or tub, or re use the Epsom salt soak from Step 1. Towel dry.

For dry skin that has been difficult to soften, try applying moisturizer at night, then sleeping with athletic socks on to hold the moisturizer to the skin, and it also helps keep the cream from getting all over the bedsheets or anything else. In extreme cases, many podiatrists and dermatologists recommend using moisturizer “under occlusion”, which means applying the recommended moisturizer to the heels and feet, then applying a saran wrap type covering around the feet, then a sock on over that, removing in the morning, then showering off.
