A common way sandal-clad feet can fall short of looking summer-ready is dry, cracked heels. This arises from pressure put on the foot, which causes the fat under the heel to expand and tear the skin. Prolonged standing and wearing open-backed shoes are the main culprits, and a moisturizing routine is probably not enough to solve the problem.
If this problem sounds familiar, try treating yourself to a resurfacing treatment for your feet. Performed in your podiatrist’s office, feet are first cleansed before they are exfoliated with a blade (as opposed to a traditional pedicure pumice stone) in order to remove hard, thick skin deposits.
A chemical peel, much like the kind that would be used on the face, is then performed on the feet. This leaves them much smoother and softer.
