Exfoliating Foot Masks have become one of my favorite things. As we age, collagen production goes down which mean the fat on the bottoms of our feet become smaller. (Unfortunately, that doesn’t happen where we really want it to, like hips, thighs, butt. No just the pads of our feet and fullest of our face). Anyway, that is for another blog. This only means that we also have to take care of our feet as we age.
I know, I am thinking the same thing. Keeping up with products to try and make my face look more youthful, is a big enough task. Now you are adding feet too.
Yes. Your feet have to carry you a long time, so you need to do the minimum and this is pretty much the minimum. The best thing is you don’t have to go anywhere, actually, you really shouldn’t go anywhere. It is sloshy in the plastic booties and it does feel a bit weird. But don’t give up, it is only an hour of your time.
The Instructions are simple to follow. You can see that on the pictures, but all you need to do is cut the booties and put them on like socks. There is a little tab for closure. It doesn’t work that great, so I put a pair of socks over top. So I can walk around and hopefully, not slip. The over socks also help to make sure the liquid inside is staying around my feet to work.
You wait an hour and rinse off. Now, does that sound too bad? No scrubbing with the pumice, file or other middle-evil device. Not to say that a pedicure is no longer every needed, but this works great for maintenance.
After a few days, your feet do kind of resemble a snake peeling out of it’s skin and there is quite a bit of skin. I use a scrub in the shower but you can just use a wet wash cloth to remove all of the dead skin.
Keep putting lotion on your feet and in a few days it is all gone and you have smooth soft skin all over your feet.
I like these foot exfoliating masks because I just pick them up at TJ Maxx. They range in price from $4.00 to $12.00. Most packages that I have picked up have 3 masks in them. I am sure they are everywhere, your local Walmart or Walgreens or Target. But the best price I have seen is at the local TJ Maxx.
They all use acids to exfoliate the skin, glycolic or lactic are the main ones. They don’t state percentages. I am sure it is strong, so definitely wash your hands after application and after you rinse your feet off.
So kick you feet up and enjoy!
