  • I'm a religious lotioner after the shower, I either use pure cocoa butter or something with cocoa butter in it. Works like a charm for me.

  • I don't get professional pedicures much. So in the mean time, I do my own. I soak my feet in foot soak stuff in warm/hot water. Then I use a foot scrub. I also use a pumice stone to get the caluses off my toe. Just be sure to rinse the pumice stone after a couple stroke and replace it every month or so to prevent bacteria from growing on it.

  • I always use a pumus stone to make sure all the dead skin is off (after I soak them) then lather them up with thick lotion.

  • Jordan Essentials Lotion Bar. It's made of beeswax & essential oils (no petroleum products). No mess. One bar will easily last 6 months.
