The winter definitely takes a toll on my skin, specifically on my feet. My feet can tend to be dry throughout the entirety of the year, but it gets about ten times worse in the winter. Ugh. It’s gross and uncomfortable, and it’s not made any better by the fact that I hate wearing socks and stay loyal to flats, even in the cold weather.
Thankfully, a few years ago I found a solution that helps keep my feet soft all year long, particularly in the winter. It’s a really easy remedy that works great. All you need to do it is a bucket to put warm water in, shaving cream, Listerine, hand dowels, socks, and lotion or foot cream. Take a look below for the steps to take, and keep in mind that this takes about 35-40 minutes to do.
-In a bucket, combine equal parts warm water and Listerine.
-Lather shaving cream on the dry parts of your feet.
-Soak a hand towel in the solution and then ring it out.
-With the shaving cream on your feet, wrap the wet towel around the bottom of your feet and let it soak for 30 minutes (this is a great time to sit at your computer and get some work done, to watch tv, or to read a book!).
-After time’s up, use the towel to rub your feet firmly to get the shaving cream off as well as some dead skin.
-Dry your feet well…don’t forget in between your toes.
-Apply a generous amount of lotion or foot cream (I love this one!) and put on some socks – preferably fuzzy ones!
And that’s it! Super easy and very effective. I originally found this remedy posted by Mommy Medicine.
