- Soak my feet at least a couple time a week, usually in a one of the above baking soda or vinegar recipes. Or… just a nice long bath in the tub.
- I exfoliate my feet morning and night. Currently, I’m using the Mr. Pumice Pumi Bar. They’re more sponge than hard pumice and work well.
- I slather on Blue Goo ointment. It’s just so rich and smells like apricots I use it lightly in the morning if I’m wearing socks and tennis shoes. And I always use it at night with…
- A pair of socks. Plain cotton socks work well, but sometimes when I feel like treating myself, I use these Airplus Aloe Infused Socks. I also just wear these around the house in the winter instead of slippers. They very, very soft and are infused with aloe and vitamin E. they can be washed and over time the aloe and vitamin E will wash out, but they’re still great socks.
