post today on makeup products that have been launched abroad that help your feet fake the pinkish blush they had while you were a kid.
Honestly I don't really remember my feet ever being pink, but they are generally in pretty good shape. They do tend to tan rather quickly, because I am too lazy to slather sunscreen on them, and I also hate that sticky feeling I get when we apply lotion on the feet. But I do have a repertoire of great products & some tricks that help keep my feet in good shape.
1. Bleach for the feet: This is my quick fix method of dealing with the horrid tan lines I get on my feet. Since the skin on the feet is pretty thick, I don't suffer any redness and my feet match the rest of my legs in just 15 minutes. It is a little messy, so keep a newspaper handy to place your feet on while the bleach dries.
2. Khadi Dead Sea Mineral Salt Mixture: I use this atleast once a month to make a nice foot soak for my feet. This is a mixture of epsom - magnesium salts along with orange and lime essential oils. It smells very good and helps break down dead skin cells, destroy odour causing bacteria, and also softens up the feet. I just add 2 spoonfuls to a bucket of hot water to which I also sometimes add the juice of a lemon. I soak my feet in this for 20 minutes and I am done.
3. Cold Cream & Socks: sometimes in the hectic rush of life, my feet get neglected for weeks on end and start crying out for moisture. I do my intensive night treatment by apply generous amounts of thick cream or vaseline (any cream or body butter works just as well) and wear a pair of old cotton socks on top and just go to sleep. In the morning, voila! feet are soft and smooth.
4. Dark nail paint: This is my cheat code. If I have just 5 minutes, I paint my nails a dark deep shade of black, navy blue or deep berry. The contrast makes my feet appear lighter and instantly more polished (pun intended).
I don't use any scrubs on the soles of my feet and especially hate going for pedicures as the soles of my feet are very, very sensitive, and I find the sensation of a scrub or brush there very painful.
What is your routine for blushing feet?
