Happy feet

Summer. I do not use this word lightly. Being from Brazil, I am a summer person and this year, my home, the UK has given me the first real summer I’ve seen in many years: days in and out of great weather. Weekends and bank holidays too – how crazy is that?

I usually say I rarely wear sandals, even in the summer here, but this year has been different. And when it’s this frequent, just manicured toes won’t cut it.

Because my workouts usually take place bare feet, I feel my soles as not as delicate as I would like. I am a huge fan of filing it with the MicroPedi Nano, which is so practical for frequent use, and I found on the Masque Bar  Intensive Moisturizing Foot Mask the perfect ally to my gadget.

Masque Bar’s range is so amazing, and they have a mask for every need. This is no joke. And the feet ones, which contain shea butter, apple extract and peppermint, is not different.

The pack comes with 2 pairs of little “socks” brimming with a serum that helps smooth, soften and moisturise the suffering skin from feet, especially the heels.

Just open the foil, open each “sock” and stick your foot inside. In 25 minutes, my feet were rested and very soft! It’s like they were new!

I loved using it after filing the skin, I feel the effect is even better as product seems to sink better.

So I could walk around, I tied up the top with elastic bands!

The Masque Bar Intensive Moisturizing Foot Mask costs £9.99 and you can get it from major retailers, like Boots (at the moment buy 1 get one 1/2 price!) and FeelUnique.

You can take a look at their insane mask range on the Masque Bar website.

Smooth steps into the summer

superdrug-foot-care - 2A bit hard to believe but it is summer in the UK, but we’ll roll with it.

Nothing better than finally releasing your feet from the shackles of boots, tights and multiple socks. But wait – are those feet in tip-top condition?

Fear not, Superdrug has everything you need to get them sandal-ready in no time.

superdrug-foot-care - 1My favourite is the Rapid-pedi electronic foot file, which works a treat to remove dead skin (gross, I know) and leave your footsies super smooth.

This is particularly important for me as my gym activities tend to be barefoot so the skin really grows and thickens (gross x2).

This handy device comes with two files, fine and coarse, for blitzing that unsightly skin.

superdrug-foot-care - 5I also use it on my hands, which have the tell-tale calluses of aerial hoop, to make them more acceptable and make sure my dates do not recoil when I touch them. Sad times.

And it’s only £19.99, a great value for money. At the moment, it’s only £13.30 and you can get refill files for £6.99 a pack.

Apologies for the close-up of my foot!

After filing, I like to apply a good soothing and conditioning cream, like this barefoot lemon and sage foot balm. It’s fresh and light, so it doesn’t stick;

Sometimes, I apply something stronger, like the barefoot foot lotion or Superdrug Intensive foot cream. Works a treat when used overnight with socks on.

superdrug-foot-care - 4Sorry, I sleep alone so no issues there.  Or I’d like to think so. Maybe that’s why I sleep alone!

Their foot care range has everything – even the emergencial plaster and those handy blister plaster for the foot to make sure those beautifully care for feet dance all night!

superdrug-foot-care - 3The blister plaster lasts all day, very useful for new pumps that rub at the back.

I can certainly count on Superdrug to look after me!

Take a look at their foot care range on the Superdrug website. At the moment, they had 1/3 off selected footcare and a free barefoot gift when you buy any 2 footcare products in the promotion!
