05/21 Pinterest Pin(s) of the Week: Get Your Feet Ready for Summer

by Pennie on May 21, 2013

See that picture in the middle of the first row?  That’s what my feet look like, only slightly worse.  Every so often, in the old days when I had some money, I would get a pedicure.  After much effort by the manicurist and torture on my part (my feet are extremely ticklish) they would emerge looking pretty good for about 3 days, ok for about 2 more then return to their natural state within a week.  Grant you, I really don’t do any upkeep on them to keep them looking good.

When they are really horrible, I’ll take a pumice stone or some scraping device to get them into the realm of human feet, other than that I can’t be bothered.  But now that money is really tight (OBTW – did one of you win the lottery last week?) and my feet will be in open shoes much longer, I need to do something.  Below are some home remedies that I’ve found on Pinterest that I thought might be worth trying.  Just click the picture to get to the originating post:


Ok, the following is just a picture that I’ve seen associated with a couple of different foot soaks.  The recipes are:

  1. Mix 1/4 c Listerine (any kind but I like the blue), 1/4 c apple vinegar and 1/2 c of warm water. Soak feet for 10 minutes and when you take them out the dead skin will practically wipe off!
  2. Fill a large bowl with warm water and add 1 cup apple cider vinegar with 1 cup Epsom salt. Soak your feet for 10-15 minutes, rinse and lightly scrub with pumice stone. Then say hello to gorgeous feet :)

And here is one product that I that would be worth trying and isn’t too expensive ($25), which I also first found on Pinterest.  I’ve read a lot of positive reviews online, but I take those with a large grain of salt.  Nobody that I know has used the product.  If any of you have, let us know, I’d really like to know how well it works:

Hopefully, I will take some of the advice available above and get some brand-spanking new-looking feet!

I LOVE this post! I’ve been desperate for an at-home DIY fix for summer feet (one knows they’ve gone dry and cracked when their husband begins referring to them as “Old Lady Witch-Feet”, LOLOL!!!). Definitely going to give this a try! Thanks!

I need to get my feet ready for summer! These are great tips in getting my feet soft and I need to do my nails also. I have so many nice sandals to wear and I do not want ugly looking feet!
