Getting rid of icky, dry, wintery feet-fast!
Don't you hate it when... you're so excited to jump into your warm, cozy bed-when it's snowy, and cold outside-maybe curl up to a good book or film-aaaand...you're darn feet start to catch and scratch on your sheets!? I must say, it's a pet peeve of mine, kinda like nails on a chalk board! :D

  • How to make skincare. Getting Rid Of Icky Feet. - Step 1
    Step 1

    Take a shower, and use a pumice stone, sponge, foot file, ped egg, etc. on your heels, and any other rough patches-maybe around your toes or corns.

    Note: When using pumice stones be sure to wash them with an antibacterial soap first.

    Step 2

    When you get out of the shower-lather your feetsies in a good hydrating lotion-Vaseline lotions, and Eucerin (dermatologist recomended) work well in my experience. Even baby lotion!

    Let lotion dry (2-4 minutes.) Then, break open a Vitamin E pill (gel form)-unless you already have Vit E in oil form-rub and/or gloupe all over or just on roughest patches.

    Next, use some sort of petroleum jelly. Wether it's vaseline brand or A&D (what I use for tats.) I use Alba Unpetroleum Petroleum Jelly. But, if I'm low-I use whatever. Slather and gloupe all over feet. Make consistancy super thick or more thin. In my opinion, I hate wearing socks anyways, especially to bed-so when I do this I make it worth it. Therefore, I tend to be a little more generous with my products.

    Step 5

    Grab two pairs of nice and warm socks-put them on. Be careful to open up the socks so the gunk won't get all over the outside. Put both pair on and go to bed! If two pair are too closterphobic for you, just wear one. Although, the mixture may leak out a bit onto your sheets.

    Note: If your feet are really cold, which sometimes this does that to them, I wrap an extra blanket around my them.

    I promise you should see a major improvment in one night with these steps.

    To maintain this, you have to continue this every so often. Or at least add a little Vitamin E or/and Petroleum Jelly to your heels and use your pumice stone in the shower.
