Now that the warm weather is here to stay, sandal season is officially in full-swing! That means lots airtime for your feet, and keeping toenails pretty isn't the only thing you need to worry about. If you want to skip a trip to the salon for a pedicure, try these quick tips to get smooth and sexy looking feet — at home, and for less.
Exfoliate. Rid your feet of dead skin with a callus-scraping tool. Sally Hansen Prep Your Pedi ($8.50) has an easy-to-grip handle, and comes with multiple attachable surface textures.
Moisturize. Using a foot cream twice a day will improve the texture of your feet. The more you moisturize, the less you'll have to exfoliate. Burt's Bees Coconut Foot Creme ($9) smells delicious, and the thick formula leaves feet feeling super-soft.
Deodorize. Stinky feet are a big faux pas, but it happens. When it does, reach for a foot deodorant. A couple spritzes of Freeman Deodorizing Foot Spray ($7) will leave your tootsies odorless and provide wetness protection, so any sweat you accumulate throughout the day won't result in a funky smell.
