But...what about all that dryness? Unless you're a person who has the time and money to go in for regular quality pedicures, you'd opt for a quick at-home treatment that's just as relaxing and soothing as a spa...and good for your feet! I'm really glad I came across this because it's super easy.
-Listerine: Any kind will work
-A bowl big enough to dip your feet in
You then pour half a cup of Listerine, half a cup of Vinegar, and one full cup of (manageable) hot water into a bowl. Dip your feet in, and let soak for at least 15 minutes. You won't feel any sensation, but trust me, it definitely works. The ingredients work together to penetrate deep into the dry areas, and the dead skin will practically fall right off! The hot water is also very relaxing! The scent of Listerine is pretty strong, and will leave your feet smelling clean and fresh after the treatment.
When you're done, you can wipe wipe your feet dry with a small cloth.
Here were my results. This was after only 10 minutes.
This is without ANY exfoliation whatsoever. I just dipped them in and out. I was amazed! No trace of dead skin left, and I quickly applied lotion afterwards to seal in the moisture.
If you have thick, rough calluses like I do, this treatment helps with that as well! I have severe calluses that require a doctor removing them, but I noticed about 10 minutes after this treatment, one part of my callus literally just fell right off on its own. I was very happy about that!
The best part is that the results are long-lasting. I've done this treatment just once so far, and at the time of this post, it's been three days since I have. My feet are still smooth and hydrated! Though this treatment is strong enough to slough away the dead skin, it's also gentle enough on your feet to use every day.
I'd recommend this treatment because it's so relaxing and effective. It also doesn't cost anything because, more than likely, all the ingredients are ones that you already have in your home.
