Yes, there are ways to achieve this. Follow the following guidelines for quick and easy, beautifully soft summer feet.
How to Get Soft Feet? - Tools Of The Trade
On this journey to soft feet we will be requiring some tools to get the job done right:
When buying or creating your own products (if you are feeling creative), take note of the following:
- Aloe, Olive oil and Coconut oil are great moisturizers
- Lemon juice and honey are natural remedies for the removal of dead skin
All the above products are available from any drug store / retail store. After your shopping trip, we can now get to work on softening those feet…
How to Get Soft Feet: 5 Steps
Step 1: Soaking & Scrubbing
Before starting anything, it is always good to soak and properly clean your feet. Try to use warm not hot water for this process. When soaking your feet, you can also give them a good scrubbing down with a luxurious scrubbing cream. A pumice stone or foot file is also handy to scrub away calluses and dead skin from your feet. Just make sure to rinse the pumice stone in water before scrubbing.
But please ensure that you use products specifically designed for the skin. You can severely damage and / infect your feet with any other products. And be very wary of foot razors.
Step 2: Drying
Always ensure that you properly dry your feet. Nobody wants to have a nasty fungal infection on their feet due to unwanted moisture.
Step 3: Trimming
When your feet are nice and dry, take the time to do some trimming. Do a proper nail cut. Also remove all old nail polish. When using nail polish, leave about a week open between painting those lovely colors. Nothing looks worse than yellow nails stained from an overdose of nail polish.
Use some oils to soften the cuticles, after which you can push back those cuticles.
Step 4: Moisturizing
After drying and trimming, liberally apply a moisturizer to your feet. Petroleum Jelly / Paraffin wax can also be applied and left on the feet overnight. This moisturizes the feet whilst you sleep. Just remember to wear slippers or cotton socks after this, or else you will go sliding through the house.
Step 5: The Day After…
The next morning, make sure to wipe off excess lotion from the feet / remove the wax. Usually after the first day you will start to notice your feet feeling softer. For more hardy, cracked hills and dry feet you might need to do this quite regularly.
On the long term, you can also invest in talcum powder / foot powder for use in your shoes. This tends to keep the feet dry and combats bad foot odor.

Keeping feet soft and beautiful should be a year round process, not just an emergency summer fix. Here are a few basic things to keep in mind for happy, healthy feet:
This routine above can be followed on a daily basis to maintain those nice and soft feet.
