Does anyone else totally neglect their feet in the winter? I’m the worst. My feet never see the light of day, I rock the same nail polish that was on my toes in September, it’s not a good situation. However, winter is the best time to be taking care of your feet and prepare them for summer. It’s so easy too. It only takes one simple step.
Are you ready for it?
Wear socks to bed.
I’m serious. That’s it.
If you remember a couple of months ago, I did a foot peeling mask that I was less-than-thrilled about. But wearing socks to bed is something I can totally get behind. I’m all about passive self-care ya know?
By wearing socks to bed you loosen dead skin, keep your feet hydrated, and hydrate your nails. You can make it a smidge more complicated and use lotion before putting on your socks. This will add a little extra moisture for extra hydration. I like to use the Gold Bond Healing Lotion with Aloe. I use this for sunburns, but it works great for feet too. This lotion also super cheap and you can buy it anywhere.
I’ve actually taken it a step further with these awesome moisturizing gel socks. They are almost sold out, but this pair is really similar. These socks have a gel lining that are infused with jojoba oil, lavender essential oil, and Vitamin E.
You can still put lotion on while using these, but they are also able to be used on their own. All the oils and and vitamins penetrate rough, dry, and cracked skin and lock in moisture. It’s recommended to wear them at least three days a week, but you can use them daily. Just be sure to only wear them to bed. Don’t walk around the house too much and definitely don’t wear them with shoes. Night time use only! You can also wash them, but only hand wash and hang dry.
So you sleep with warm feet and wake up with pretty ones. Sounds like a win-win situation to me!
