Get Ready For Sandal Season, Redheads!

Spring is almost here and it’s time to get your feet ready for sandal season. Dry, cracked feet are super common in the wintertime and common for many redheads with sensitive skin, but there are a few ways you can get your feet ready ASAP. Here are our favorite feet products + a few tips and tricks to prepare: 

Do a foot peel

Right now is the perfect time to do a foot peel mask. It will help you slough off all the old dead skin and leave your feet feeling nice and soft. Foot peel masks usually leave your feet looking pretty nasty for a week or two, so get on it now before it’s time to bust out the open-toed shoes. 

Foot Peel Mask: $17

Lather up

Dry feet need hydration, so later up with a foot cream or heavy lotion. Pop some nice thick socks on and leave them on for at least a couple of hours — overnight is even better. Do this 1-2 times a week or as needed and your feet will feel nice and soft. 

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula: $5

Apply foot balm

Keep up your foot care by applying a foot cream or balm after every shower. It’s easy to use and will help keep feet soft. We love Dr. Scholl’s Severe Cracked Heel Repair Restoring Balm. Focus on your heels and the sides of your feet, or wherever the skin gets the driest. 

Dr. Scholl's Severe Cracked Heel Repair Restoring Balm: $7

Get a pedicure

Pedicures aren’t just for getting your toes painted. Pedicures should be used as a form of routine foot care maintenance. You’ll get your feet scrubbed and filed and lathered up. You can also do a pedicure at home and invest in a foot file

Foot File: $15

Wear a sleep sock

We know a lot of people hate sleeping in socks, but overnight is the best time to hydrate and nourish dry feet. Try wearing these overnight sleep socks that leave your toes free while softening and moisturizing the heels. 

Overnight Sleep Socks: $15
