Grooming: Foot treatment

BEST FOOT FORWARD. Spring has finally arrived: the season of new bloom, outdoor exertions and open footwear

Best foot forward


While the idea of exposing this particular area of the body might be terror-inducing to some men, flip-flops are inescapable during the warmer months. Extra attention to grooming the feet is required, and although the task might seem daunting at first, an easy three-step routine is all what it takes to get the feet to their tip-top shape. A simple moisturizing, spritzing and preventative care could banish the seemingly irreversible curse of dry, chalky feet. So, get ready to welcome the spring and let your feet soak up the sunshine.

1. With a quick-dry formula that delivers a powdery finish, L’Occitane’s Almond Foot Care is the answer to a busy man’s routine. The skin-pampering properties of almond milk and shea butter return dry, cracked heels to their pristine state, while the mint essential oil purifies and refreshes. With a cool tingle, this foot hydrator is making its way up in the list of necessary luxuries. By the way, it’s a limited edition item.

2. The feet are the first part of the body to feel the effects of exhaustion. With a simple spritz of The Body Shop’s Peppermint Cooling Foot Spray, fatigue is alleviated in an instant. The peppermint oil cools and prevents odor, while grape extract provides mild exfoliation. Menthol completes the trio of rejuvenating ingredients with its refreshing properties, keeping your feet cool as cucumber.


3. Showing off the feet means exposing them to the harmful rays of the sun, whose negative after-effects need no further recapitulation. On the aesthetic side, burned and spotted feet are not very attractive. Feet are often neglected when it comes to applying sunscreen, and with Avène’s Very High Protection Mineral Cream SPF 50, a quick slather will protect your feet from sun damage.
