SheFinds Solutions: Three Steps to Soothe Aching Feet
July 10, 2007
Problem: So, you didnâ€™t take our very good advice about how to avoid blisters, and now youâ€™re paying the painful price. You looked fabulous strutting around last night in sky- high stilettos, but this morning, your dogs are looking decidedly unglamorous. Your pedicure is busted, unsightly calluses are increasing in size, and your feet ache so badly, even slipping on your favorite pair of flip-flops seems a cruel and unusual punishment.
Solution: Restore your feet to their pre-party glory days, with spa quality pampering from Peppermint Foot Therapy by Upper Canada.
1. Start with a 10 minute Relaxing Foot Salt Soak ($11.99). This mineral-rich blend of sea-salts, dead sea salts and epsom salts comfort and soothe while peppermint oil cools and refreshes.
2. Next, gently exfoliate with this scrub ($11.99) made of walnut shells and apricot seeds. Gently is the key word here — your tootsies have been through enough.
3. Finally, hydrate your feet by massaging in some heavy-duty, shea-enriched Cracked Heel Treatment, wrap your feet in plastic bags, and then put on a pair of apara jammies aloe infused therapy socks ($6.99). Your feet will feel so rejuvenated youâ€™ll be back in game — and back in heels -â€“ in no time.
