Good Morning Ladies. After months of wearing socks, boots and closed toed shoes it is time to set our toes free!
To soften super-dry areas, soak your feet in original Listerine Antiseptic Mouthwash (yes, Listerine!) once or twice a week. Mix one part Listerine with two parts warm water in a basin and soak your feet for 15 to 20 minutes. Then apply a moisturizer like Eucerin Plus Intensive Repair Foot Creme, which contains hydrating urea. In addition to skin-sloughing benzoic acid, Listerine contains ethanol, which kills bacteria, fungi, and germs that can lead to athlete’s foot.
Coating feet in a cream like Burt’s Bees Thoroughly Therapeutic Honey & Bilberry Foot Creme, which is loaded with moisture-replenishing honey and jojoba oil, and wearing socks to bed is an excellent way to lock in moisture for softer feet. If you can’t stand to sleep in socks, place a humidifier at the foot of your bed to keep feet hydrated.
