Sloughing dead skin off of our feet not only make them more aesthetically pleasing, but can improve flexibility of your extremities, loosen stiff arches, and relax the rest of your body. If you’re looking for a super gentle product to ease you into regular scrubbing, try the Le Couvent des Minimes Foot Polishing Cream. Inspired by the French botanicals (like poppy seed, walnut, grapeseed oil, and mint) that surround the company grounds, this mild foot exfoliator is best used two to three times per week. Feelings of tightness and itchiness will dissipate with Bliss Foot Patrol, a salicylic acid-infused foot scrub that softens even the most callused skin. Walking outside in sandals? The bottoms of your tootsies need the Get Fresh Down`n Dirty Pumice Foot Scrub, the strongest of its kind at Beauty Bridge.

Going without shoes in the summertime – or at least wearing open-toed sandals – is one of life’s great pleasures. But when your feet need a bit more love, that can make things uncomfortable. Deborah Lippmann products like the Soul Survivor Foot File are designed for the safe removal of dead skin cells. To make things a bit easier, try the Get Off Callus Softener. The powerful blend of lactic, glycolic, and salicylic acids weaken tough calluses and make the pedicure process far easier, leaving you with healthy, soft skin.
Need an emergency pedicure fix? Not to worry: With just one hour of the Patchology POSHPEEL Pedi Cure you’ll zap stubborn calluses and send them packing! We can’t say enough about Baby Foot peels, which are a natural alternative to nasty chemicals or intense (and even painful) pedicures. This gradual process begins with the application of the plastic socks which contain the trademark Baby Foot peeling formula. Leave the foot mask on for an hour, at minimum, and catch up on your Netflix. When you’re finished, all you have to do is remove the plastic socks and gently wash your feet. Over the following week or two, you’ll notice that your feet will peel. Let the alpha hydroxy acids do their work, and enjoy two months of super soft, gorgeous toes! If you’ve never done a pedicure before, you may need a stronger formula. The Baby Foot Exfoliant Foot Peel For Men is your best bet for smoother feet.
