As Effective As Afternoon Toetox…Minus The Giant Needle Entering Your Foot

Toe tucks. Toetox. Foot facials. Manhattan’s Upper East Side podiatrist Dr. Suzanne Levine, D.P. M, tends to the feet of ladies who lunch via such services as Pillows for Your Feet (a pricey gang of Juvéderm and Scluptra injections to beef up the padding on the bottom of the feet), Botox injections, and toe shortening or lengthening surgery that starts at $1,500. Yikes (and ouch!).

Even though your hoofs might be logging more miles than Jakey G. on his bike, you can get them back into shape for spring with the aid of footcare products that won’t break the bank.

Step One: Soften Up. 

Soften those rock-hard calluses with True Blue Spa Tough Love Spa-Strength Callus Treatment ($15). Alpha hydroxy acids make quick work of calluses, preparing them for the big scrub. 

Artemis Woman Heel Smoother  

Step Two: Buff Away. 

Next, skip the credo blades—I know a lot of you ladies love them, but they can cut into your skin, allowing for infections to develop. Instead, buff away with Artemis Woman Heel Smoother ($30), a nifty battery-operated callus remover with a built-in safety feature that stops the tool when you apply too much pressure to the foot.

Bliss Rosemary + Lemon Softening Sock Salve  Bliss Softening Socks

Step Three: Slip On and Soak. 

Lastly, slather your feet in Bliss Rosemary + Lemon Softening Sock Salve ($28), and then slide them into Bliss’s Softening Socks ($50). The recommended “soaking” time is 20-30 minutes once weekly, but if you really want to subtract years, don the salve and socks every night while you catch your beauty zzz’s.
