Pretty Feet

Author: Dr. Larita

I want to help the ladies and gentlemen who are wearing sandals after months of being cooped up in socks and boots because they don’t realize how dry and cracked their feet look to others! First, exfoliate your feet by using a salt or sugar scrub in the shower to help remove dry and dead skin, eliminate the appearance of cracked heels, and start the healing process. If you also have calluses on your feet, gently use a pumice stone to start sloughing the callus down but do it gradually over a week or more.

The second thing is to give your feet a deep moisturizing treatment with either raw shea butter or shea butter cream by coating your feet with the butter and then putting your socks on before going to bed. You can do the deep moisturizing treatment as often as you like but don’t forget to moisturize your feet after each shower too. The finishing touch for feet that look good in sandals is to give yourself a pedicure and, if you like, put on your favorite color nail polish and enjoy the summer!


What is Shea Butter?

Shea butter is a 100% pure and natural cream containing vitamin A and vitamin E which has exceptional healing properties for the skin. The vitamin A in shea butter is important for improving skin conditions including blemishes, wrinkles, eczema, and dermatitis as well as properties that treat skin allergies, insect bites, sunburns, frostbites, and many other common skin conditions. The vitamin E in this rich creamy extract may serve as an anti-free radical agent that aids in preventing the harmful effects of the sun and environmental exposure on the skin.

Shea butter is derivedĀ  from the seed of the shea tree and is extracted and prepared without the use of chemicals. The best shea butter for skin use is prepared by cold press methods without the use of added chemicals or preservatives.
