Top 10 Products for Summertime Foot Care!

 Press Sample Affiliate Link Blogger Ambassador


It is time for Top 10 Tuesday! Top Ten Tuesday is a bi-weekly collaborative blog series where my blogger friends and I post our Top 10 lists for a per-selected category. This week we are sharing our Top 10 Products for Summertime Foot Care! I am so excited about this topic because taking care of my feet in the Summers is something I really spend a lot of time and attention on. Summer is the time for pretty pedicure polish, flip flops, bare feet, and yes....callouses (ugh!!!). If I am going to bare my feet in sandals/flip flops, then I really want my feet looking cute. 
Rough skin is just cringe-worthy and I do my best to avoid it at all costs! Fighting callouses and rough/dry skin on my feet is a constant battle. Going barefoot and wearing flip flops seems to really dry out my feet. Plus, exposure to the drying chlorine in the neighborhood pool and YMCA does not help either.  I need not only moisture, but also products that fight rough/hard skin. So, for this post, I am going to focus on my current Top 10 Products for Summer Foot Care with an emphasis on moisturization. 

I am always excited to try out new products for foot care. I have a few products that I come back to again and again, but also I equally love trying new things! Pampering my feet is something that I don't mind spending a few extra minutes on every day. For some reason, and I am going to sound like a total dork, but I just feel cuter overall if my feet are looking smooth and my toenails are polished. Before I had kids, I got a pedicure every other week. Well, I certainly don't have the time, nor want to spend the money on going to a nail salon for that anymore. So, I am perfectly happy pampering my piggies (lol, this is what my 2-year old daughter calls toes) at home!

My Summertime Foot Care Routine:
In the Summers, I must really amp up my routine with moisturizing and treating the dry/rough skin on my feet. In addition to applying my usual post-shower body butter to my feet and rest of body in the mornings (I usually use whatever body butter that I am trying to use up or one that I am testing out for review), I also apply a thick cream or foot treatment product at night. When I have a little extra time (which I admit is rare these days), I opt for a foot soak or bath. If my feet are achy, I like to do a little soak with Epsom salts. During my foot soaks, I also like using foot scrubs and a foot brush/pumice stone to really work on those callouses. Every night before bed, I slather cream all over my feet and put on cotton socks. I usually get hot in the middle of the night and take off my socks. But, I still get a few hours in them and this helps the cream to absorb.

So, here ya go ya'll: My Current Top 10 Products for Summertime Foot Care:
  • NightCare Heel Treatment Kit: This is such a great kit for when your heels get super dry and rough! NightCare's Intensive Healing Foot Cream and Moisturizing Gel Heel Socks (footless socks with built in moisturizing gel) come together in this kit. The convenient, at-home treatment nourishes feet with vitamins, eliminating dry skin and cracked heels while also soothing calluses. The Gel Heel Socks have a unique moisture zone made of Visco-Gel that continuously softens and moisturizes dry skin. Dermatologist-tested, the heel socks deliver mineral oil to repair damaged skin, and come in a cute leopard print! You can either use the heel socks or Foot Cream on their own or you can increase the results by using them at the same time. I use this kit at night right before going to sleep. I just slather my feet with the Foot Cream and then put on the footless Moisturizing Gel Heel Socks. I love this whole concept. However, my toe area tends to be even dryer/rougher than my heels. So, I wish there was a moisturizing toe patch as well! This kit retails for $25.00 from NightCareProducts.com
  • NightCare Exfoliating Foot Scrub: When I have a bit more time, I like doing a full spa-like foot treatment and pedicure. I will admit that my time as limited and I don't do this as much as I like. However, when I do, I like to start with a foot soak with a scrub treament. This Scrub from NightCare is a great option. This scrub contains natural pumice suspended in a refreshing aqua cool gel. The scrub gets rid of corns, calluses and rough flaky skin to leave feet feeling soft and smooth. Its refreshing scent completes this invigorating skin treatment. Retails for $13.00 for 6.5 oz. 
  • butter LONDON Pedicure Collection Stiletto Stick Hydrating Heel Balm: This is such a cool product! It is a super easy to apply and use: simply twist up stick foot balm and glide it over the areas needing moisture and softening. The packaging is ultra convenient and great for when you are on-the-go or need a travel foot moisture option. Retails for $15.00 (you can find butter LONDON at Ulta).
  • Bare Foot (by Freeman) Moisturizing Massage Cream: When I am super tired and my feet are achy, I like whipping out a massage cream for a good foot rub from my husband. Granted, he is not always up for that, but it sure is a nice treat. Weather or not I have a massage helper, this freshly scented cream feels so good going on your feet. It leaves my feet hydrated and smelling great! Retails for $5.99 at Walmart.
  • Bare Foot (by Freeman) Exfoliating Polish: This is an exfoliant for feet and body. I keep this product in the shower to give my feet an extra bit of polishing during my showers. I use it a few times a week. Sometimes, life just gets too hectic for those foot soaks that I love. So, this is a nice and quick way to work on softening those callouses right in the shower! Bare Foot's Exfoliating Body Polish delivers gentle exfoliation for skin that’s rejuvenated and re-energized. Non-abrasive micro-granules buff away dead skin as Apricot Oil nourishes and soothes. Retails for $5.99 at Walmart.
  • Aquaphor: Yes, good ol' classic Aquaphor! This amazing ointment has a million uses and softening your feet is just one of em. I literally keep Aquaphor everywhere: all over house, in purse, in nursery for baby, etc! When I use it on my feet, I apply thickly at night after a bath or shower and then cover my feet with cotton socks. This can really transform your feet!
  • Julep Mint Condition Pedi Cream (Formerly known as "The Best Pedi Cream Ever"): Oh how I adore this cream!!! I have gotten a few of these as part of my monthly Julep Maven boxes and will fully purchase another whenever I run out. This foot cream contains AHAs as well as moisturizing ingredients like coconut oil. shea butter, and Vit E. Consistant use of this cream keeps my feet looking and feeling great! Available at Julep for $16.00 (and if you haven't signed up yet to get the monthly Julep nail subscription boxes, please use my referral link to sign up! I absolutely adore my Julep subscription and have so much fun with the items in the boxes.
  • AmLactin Foot Cream: Here is another excellent option if you are looking for an Alpha-Hydroxy Acid based foot cream. AmLactin is an entire line of Alpha Hydroxy body products. I find this foot cream to be very effective! It smooths and softens my skin beautifully! I am super pleased with the results that I have when I use this product consistently twice a day (after my shower in the morning and before bed at night). You can find AmLactin at Walgreens. This Foot Cream retails for $9.99.
  • Eucerin Intensive Repair: You know I had to give you one more option for a great Alpha-Hydroxy based foot cream, right? This fragrance-free cream moisturizes and smooths your feet while softening those callouses. Retails for $5.79 at Wallgreens.
  • Yu Be Moisturizing Skin Cream: This is an intensely moisturizing ointment-like rich cream. It is all purpose and I particularly like it for lips and cracked skin and cuticles. This cream is glycerin-based and smells slightly of camphor. I keep this right in the top drawer of my night stand to spot treat dry and cracked skin before bed. Retails for $25.00 a tub at Sephora.

Nice post.

Prime Beauty said...

I want the night care heel treatment--those socks are adorable!

@All Lacquered Up-LOL! Totally! You know, the funny thing is that I am constantly using up foot creams, even though I have so many because I slather it on so thickly (and use it at least 2 times a day)...

@Chantel-Thank you!

@Prime Beauty-I really like that heel treatment!
