This is the first week of fall but it sure doesn’t feel like it outside. Over the past several days, we’ve had temperatures feeling closer to 40 with the humidity. Welp, I guess I’m going to have to wait to pull out my fall wardrobe for a little bit longer. No matter what it feels like outside, I like having a good end-of-season pampering session for the parts of my body that don’t often get pampering, like my feet. Even though fall is a time when sandals and open toed shoes are going to take a back seat to boots and regular close toed shoes, I still like treating my feet to a good summer to fall foot pampering session. Here are some of the products that were part of this year’s pampering routine.
First things first, I’ve become more and more obsessed with masks of all kinds. Sephora has converted me into a mask collector and one of the kinds of masks that I absolutely LOVE using are foot masks. The 7th Heaven Soften Sock Masques ($5.99 / Available at Farleyco.ca & Rexall Pharmaplus) are like getting your feet pampered at the spa. They are booties that make your feet feel really soft and come treated with shea butter and almond oil, which nourishes dry skin and repairs cracked heels, and peppermint and soybean, which freshen and hydrate the skin making it feel silky soft.
I’ve done a lot of walking this summer which has resulted in very dry, cracked heels, so to take it a step further in order to make sure my feet are in their best condition, I have been using Flexitol Heel Magic ($14.99 / Available at Farleyco.ca & Shoppers Drug Mart). It’s a new and innovative way to hydrate and nourish dry, cracked heels, which comes in a no-mess stick formula that contains a blend of urea, shea butter, lanolin and olive oil in a highly concentrated moisturizing base.
It’s not always the prettiest thing to see but women get toe hair. I used to shave mine off until I discovered that you can easily just wax it off instead. Andmentics Toe Wax Strips ($14.99 / Available at Farleyco.ca) are safe to use at home and make waxing your little piggies a breeze. They are shaped to work on all toes and expertly removes all hair without irritating your skin.
Using vanilla scented shower gels and bath foams are an obsession for me which is why I really love the cute mini bottle of I Love Vanilla & Ice Cream Bath & Shower Creme ($9.99 for 500ml / Available at Farleyco.ca & Shoppers Drug Mart). It’s great for travelling, smells like summertime and eating ice cream cones and makes your skin (and feet) smell and feel great. Lastly, you can’t complete a full foot pampering session without a good pedicure. I’m not the greatest at painting my toes, so a toe separator is essential. They keep your toes in place as you apply the nail polish and prevent any movement from happening afterwards so the polish doesn’t get smudged.
Aside from this routine, I make sure to keep my feet moisturized and like slathering them in lotion before I go to bed (and just hoping that I don’t have to wake up in the middle of the night to pee). If you follow a routine like this and have a special evening once a month where you treat your feet and give them the love they deserve, they will look amazing all year round.
