How To Treat Your Feet At Home

Earlier this week I did something very unlike my usual (mostly) practical self. I went for a pedicure two weeks after the previous one. My toes were perfectly polished, yet I felt that I needed a little bit of a refresh. Okay, not really. I just got tired of looking at my pale pink polish and wanted something a bit jazzier and went for green.

One of the best parts of summer shoes is revealing your toes. And while you might not always be able to afford the latest fashions or fancy new running shoes, you can always look up to date with a fresh coat of varnish.
If you don't want to head to the salon, consider treating your feet at home instead:

  • Soak in tepid water with some Epsom salts and a few drops of essential oil (I love a juniper/lavender/grapefruit combo) to refresh your tired feet at the end of the day.
  • Consider a self-massage of your calves or feet after a run or workout. Incorporate a minty infused lotion for extra zing.
  • You can really have fun with polish choices—I'm loving the bright neons this season (Duri has a particularly cute color collection for about $6.00 a bottle).
  • If your sandal-exposed toes tend to chip, consider topping your polish with a sparkly top coat to disguise the chipped bits.
