Happy May Day, all you wonderful Posse folks! I always feel a little extra spring in my step on May 1 because it means the school year is winding down fast and summer’s on its way, which means sandals, big-time. And it will soon be Mother’s Day. Speaking of, every Mother’s Day, to keep things simple, I ask for a pedicure. My boys are very kind to get me one and my feet are always so grateful; after all, they are one of the hardest-working parts of the body and often sorely underappreciated.
But, and this may sound silly, I always have this nagging feeling that my feet need to be much improved BEFORE going in for said pedicure. Kind of like cleaning your house top to bottom before you have a cleaning service in; know what I mean?
Anyhoo, I’ve been using my buffer/scrubber before every shower (or at least when I think of it, which is about every other time) and slathering lotion on when I get out. But it always seems that a day or so later, my poor old tootsies have reverted quite a bit to their former state of disrepair. I’ve even tried wearing socks at night over heavy moisturizer but because of my tendency toward swollen feet, they often irritate me, so I gave them the boot ASAP and let the old footsies breathe at night.
So I’m thinking that perhaps my foot products are not up to snuff. I do have a tube of something called Podiatrist’s Secret blah-blah-blah, which I use, but somehow doesn’t seem to make all that much difference. So I’m hoping you guys have some good products and or tips/procedures to greatly improve the feet.
Because, you know, I wouldn’t want to embarrass myself at the salon with my ratty feet or make my aesthetician have to work like a dog trying to make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear, ha!
