It's time to expose your feet! To help get your tootsies looking and feeling summer-ready, here are some quick tips to pamper your feet. This will ensure that whichever style of footwear you are flaunting, your immaculate feet will make you stand out.

1 Wash up daily
Summers are the time when you sweat a lot and so do your feet, thereby attracting a lot of dirt and dust. So make sure that before going to bed, you wash your feet thoroughly with cold water. This will clean off all the dust from your feet, and then scrub using a pumice stone.

2Moisturise well
Use a good quality lotion or foot cream and make it your daily routine to apply it on your feet, to get soft feet. But do not over-moisturise, especially between your toes, as it might cause fungal infection. You can even apply coconut oil on your feet and keep it overnight wearing a pair of cotton socks to wake up with beautiful and soft feet.

Also, it is essential to take care of chapped feet. To scrub away the dryness, soak your feet in a tub of warm water with a teaspoon of shea butter in it. This will leave your feet glowing and smooth.

3Comfort over style
Opt for comfortable footwear and do not keep your feet tightly packed. Give them space to breathe by wearing breathable footwear, preferably made of mesh fabric.
