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. But 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 very well before you have a cleaning service in. Am I right?
With graduation and all its activities, I was a little late getting my beach-ready pedicure this year. And in doing so, I stepped out of my comfort zone a bit by using a deeper turquoise on my tootsies, instead of my usual pale aqua. I couldn’t get the photo to upload properly to show you but it’s much more vibrant than the shade pictured (on fingers, sorry!) that I normally use. Took me a while to get used to it, but I’m ok with it now.
Anyhoo, I’ve still 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’s always seemed that a day or so later, they’ve reverted a bit to their former state of disrepair. I’ve even tried wearing those socks at night, but because of my tendency toward swollen feet, they often cut into my skin, threatening to cut off the circulation, so I gave those the boot.
However, I have had some success lately with a Gold Bond cream in a tube that includes exfoliators in its moisturizing formula. It seems to be keeping the flakies at bay fairly well, so I’ll take that.
What about you? What are your beautiful, hard-working feet wearing these days? Or are you sporting simply sunny, bare-naked tootsies?
