Pretty feet

Scrub up in five ways.


Sandal season is upon us, but don’t worry if your feet aren’t quite ready for their big reveal; a quick scrub and polish is all it will take to have them glowing. Here are five products to add to your regime pronto.


Buffing away dead, dry skin is the first step to getting beautiful feet. The ”Pedi-Scrub Foot Buffer 20+” from Spongeable­s at Ulta Beauty is filled with shower gel to cleanse and exfoliate at the same time, and also features Olive Oil and Shea Butter for a burst of hydration.


Masking isn’t just for your face can be an effective quick-fix for dry, tired feet, too. Nails Inc. has a new “Thirsty Feet” version that promises to hydrate the feet within 20 minutes, thanks to a combinatio­n of green tea, ginkgo leaf extract, sweet almond and peppermint extract.


Maintain your good work with regular applicatio­ns of a rich foot cream, such as the “Shea Butter Foot Cream” from French beauty giant L’Occitane. Containing 15 percent Shea Butter and Lavender essential oil, it claims to soften, relax and refresh the feet.


Once your feet are looking as good as new, add a lick of nail polish for the finishing touch. Christian Louboutin Beauty’s new “Dragonflas­h” collection for Spring/Summer 2018 comes in three vibrant neon jewel hues for maximum impact.


Next up a soothing soak to relax, cleanse and soften the skin. Lush’s new “Foot Soak and Fancy Free” disc dissolves in water to release epsom and fine sea salts and French lavender oil for an instant refresh.
