Okay ladies i need your help plz!!

Here we are in May-warm weather (for some) sandal season!

I'm a flipflop girl myself.

Anyhoo,my tootsies are in need of some TLC!

So since i really can't make it to the spa/nail salon

I would love to hear YOUR home remedies to pamper the tootsies!

And maybe even some nice nail designs while we're at it!

A homemade sugar scrub could help as well as lots of aloe.    My feet are very neglected but i try to use a sugar scrub on them..... Mix table sugar with water until a paste.   If you have a body scrub, you could probably just mix the sugar in with that for the same effect.

Easiest way to scrub off the dead skin...  Soak your feet in hot water with Epsom salt.  Soak them for at least 15 minutes.  Then that a firm bristle tooth brush to your feet.  Dead/tough skin comes right off.

No a loofah would not work for this.   You need a nail scrubber/foot scrubber or as the poster said a firm toothbrush to help get the dead cells off.

I agree with the soaking and scrubbing.  I also push back my cuticles after soaking, much easier and your polish looks much nicer.

I just did my feet last night. Like everyone said,a good soaking is a must. After, I soak my feet, I dry them very well, then I use my 'peg egg' I brought mine for 6.99 from CVS,after I used'peg egg' I lather my feet with vasoline,then I put on white socks to sleep in. Cheap and easy!
