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:
- 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!
- 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!
