Summer’s here, which means no more sneakers and boots! It’s the season of embellished flats and strappy sandals that expose your feet to the sun, making them tanned and dry. If you’re no stranger to the mortifying summer feet and want to beat the foot tan this summer, here are some foot care tricks to get pretty looking and sandal-ready feet all summer long...

Scrub the tan away

Use a gentle scrub like St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Face Scrub to exfoliate and get the dead skin cells, dirt and summer build up off your feet. Exfoliate once a week to make sure your feet are clean of all the dirt.

Don’t forget the nail care
 

Don’t forget the nail care

Proper nail and cuticle care is the key to getting envious feet. Use cuticle clippers to remove the hanging cuticles and dead skin. Remove the residue properly and apply Vaseline Pure Skin Jelly to sooth and nourish the nail area.

Keep them moisturised

Moisturised feet equals gorgeous feet. Summer heat makes feet dry and cracked. Keep them moisturised with a hydrating lotion like Vaseline Healthy White Lightening Body Lotion. It nourishes and lightens the tanned skin.

Give your feet some TLC
 

Give your feet some TLC

Prepare a home foot spa with warm water and a body wash to clean your feet and enjoy some pedicure time twice a month. Soak your feet for 15 minutes and then treat your cracked heels with the help of a pumic stone to get baby soft feet at home.

Swear by a sunscreen
