Dry cracked heels – something Naomi Campbell should never be accused of having, comes with the territory when you live in a pedestrian city like New York or any bustlin’ city for that matter. To keep your feet from becoming a punchline in a Kevin Hart joke, give your feet some due attention with products from June Jacobs, Freeman, Zim’s and Alessandro.
Tired Feet Get A Boost
When your tuckered out feet need some tender lovin’ care, soak ’em in a basin of warm water and add Freeman Barefoot Peppermint + Plum Foot Soak ($3.79, freemanbeauty.com) – a pick-me-up for your hooves. This foot soak is made with Peppermint and Plum to soften rough, dry patches on the soles and heels of your feet and is a great prep for exfoliation. Also contains Tea Tree Oil for added relaxing benefits.
Calluses No More
Rough calluses is the death to a woman wanting to wear -toe-bearing shoes, so head off any embarrassment by slathering then with ultra-hydrating and anti-aging June Jacobs Intensive Age-Defying Hydrating Hand & Foot Cream ($65, junejacobs.com). Also for use on the hands, elbows and knees, this paraben and preservative-free treatment made with hydrolized silk, red and green tea extracts combined with goji berry and pomegranate and grape seed extracts helps restore moisture and keeps skin looking young.
Heal As You Soften
Because lotion alone won’t do the job of softening desert-worthy dry feet, try Zim’s Crack Creme Heels & Feet Foot Cream ($8.99, zimsusa.com) – a naturally-based skin care product made with the healing agent L-Arginine, that upon contact delivers much-needed moisture.
Looking for something a little different? Try a foot balm – Alessandro Pedix Feet Go Easy Moisturizing Foot Balm ($10, alessandro-international.us) to be more specific. This moisturizing balm for tired, stressed feet, has an invigorating effect and provides lasting protection against the formation of hard skin.
