It’s been a very cold and dreadful winter to say the least, but that’s still no excuse to walk around with your feet in a disarray. As a woman, your feet should be one of your most prized possessions. I’m pretty sure that your “significant other”, “boyfriend”, “boo”, or “bae”, does NOT want to be spending quality time with you while your feet are LITERALLY in shambles. In order to avoid that confusion, just take some time out of your schedule and devote some energy into taking care of yourself.
First things first, feet become unattractive when they are neglected. And by neglected I mean that your toenails have grown so long that they have begun to carve through your favorite pair of leather boots, or the last time you’ve gotten your toe nails polished was in July, 2013, or the bottom of your feet feels and looks like snake skin. Ewww. Don’t be that girl. I repeat: Please, do not be that girl. Clip your toenails. It takes seconds and all you need is a nail clipper (but do not make the mistake of thinking that you are Sue-Wong, the licensed nail technician). If you’re tired of spending money on weekly and bi-weekly pedicures, invest in an at-home foot soak, or just soak your feet with warm water in your bath tub. Try mixing in listerine, vinegar, and water while soaking your feet as well. It helps heal dry skin. Following this, apply so foot healing lotion to seal in that moisture. Side note: Try to stray away from what I like to call the “cheese-grater” technique that is often used in nail salons. It’s the silver tool that actually looks like a cheese-grater that is used to get rid of dead and excess skin on the soles of your feet. I believe that this actually increases the amount of dry skin produced.
Lastly, polish your damn toes! It isn’t rocket science. It may take some practicing, but again, it is not rocket science. You will be very surprised at what a little polish can do for your toe nails. Remember, it’s still winter so your feet don’t have to be perfect, but they should be visually appealing to some extent. So before you go spend time with your “FWB”, “girlfriend”, or “boyfriend”, please keep these tips in mind. Also remember that just because a person (cough, cough your boyfriend!) hasn’t said anything about those monstrous feet of your does not necessarily mean they aren’t watching, so take care of those feet ladies!
