Pedicure Hack - Simplify Your Life
That’s how I like to be. I’m in flip flops from March to November and if I can swing it sock-less as much as possible throughout the winter.
My feet sweat. A lot. Have you tried finding cotton socks these days? Unless I want to spend $20 / pair – which I won’t because hubby steals my black socks; something about them being thinner and softer than men’s socks – I have to shop the Walmart / Target express.
Yeah. You’re funny. The most ‘cotton feeling’ pair they had was 72% Polyester, 24% Nylon, and 4% RUBBER.
That’s right folks! Socks are now made of plastic, stretchy plastic, and FUCKING TIRES!!!!
So. No socks for me.
As you can imagine (or, try not too – the visual is quite disturbing) my feet look like shit. I can’t afford weekly pedicures so I’ve tried the DIY approach and bought those nifty scaly-feet-scary-razors like they have in salons.
My feet looked like they were attacked by Edward ScissorHands, there was blood everywhere, and needless to say the end result was NOT sexy.
Fear not, friend,fear not. *I* have experimented for you, and here’s the absolute best pedicure hack I can come up with. And no one needs to know 😉
Take a plain old razor – preferably with a new blade – and shave off those corns and calluses as you would your wooky-like legs. I like the one pictured above but any razor will do. Bonus, if your husband is pissing you off this week, use his!
Follow up with some lotion and voila! Instant soft feet that didn’t cost you your firstborn. You’re welcome.
