Sometimes having pretty feet isn't as easy as a quickie pedicure. Here are three quick tips for making your 10 little piggies worthy of your cutest summer shoes.
1. Don't forget to sunscreen your feet.
One bad flip-flop tan (or worse, burn) can create lines that last all summer long and interfere with your cute strappy heels.
2. When you'll be walking around the city, skip the foot lotion.
If you live in a city, you probably dread the dirty feet that come with sandal season. Putting on lotion right before you go out just attracts lots more grime, so if you can, skip it. And carry a travel pack of wipes in case you need to spot-clean your feet when you arrive at your destination.
3. Before bed, rub in a power moisturizer.
Rather than use plain-old body lotion, try something with lactic acid, urea and/or salicylic acid. These ingredients melt away dull, dead skin--it's like pumicing in your sleep without lifting a finger.
