How I did it: As with most new & exciting endeavors, I went in on this one with full battle regalia - pumice stone, energizing foot scrub, pepperminty cream, smoothening lotion, deep conditioning aloe vera & avocado masks, a spray that claims to give your heels that much coveted rosy glow, another spray that claims to dry between the toes and get rid of all kinds of nasties, the digits of a trusted pedicurist.
Eventually the routine was streamlined to: massaging & rubbing my feet with a hand-towel dipped in warm water every evening at bedtime (this is a great relaxation routine too by the way), followed by a dab of minty foot cream once feet were dried.
Maybe once or twice a week, as needed: pumice stone and foot scrub. Plus a pedicure every 2 or three weeks.
Heels are now soft, smooth & naturally rosy-plump :)

i need to moisturise them every night. now that i’ve been doing yoga for a while i’m getting reaquainted with my feet!
i also need to get my shower fixed, as the water builds up and doesn’t drain away quickly enough. that can’t be good for my feet. 1 month ago
How I did it: One month of dedicated foot care transformed my feet. To my surprise there are no more cracks or monster callouses and my feet are actually pretty! Twice per week I soaked then scrubbed my heels with a pumice stone and gritty exfoliating scrub, similar to St. Ives Apricot Scrub but from the pedicure section of a beauty supply store. And daily I applied Vermont’s Original Bag Balm or another healing cream. The difference in my feet is very obvious. Now I wish I'd have taken before and after pics! Read how I did it… 4 years ago
And fourth pedicure scheduled.
Soft feet and pretty (grape coloured) toenails and no pain or itching.
I think I can call this goal complete. 15 months ago
My foot hurts but, hopefully it is improving. By the 23rd, it should be somewhat better. I should see real improvement by the end of this month. So, I am hoping for the best and a full recovery! 15 months ago
My feet were aching on the second day of skiing – my old ski boots were giving me pressure marks and blisters.
My ankles look terrible.
So I went and bought all new boots at the little sports store near our hotel: They had a special machine to measure your feet – size, width and pressure points.
The machine recommended my boots and they were on sale!
They fit like a dream.
Hopefully no more foot pain while skiing today :) 15 months ago
