If you suffer from dry, cracked heels like I do, this collection of 10 DIY foot scrubs and soaks is just what you need to make your feet look, feel, and smell beautiful in time for sandal season.

I’ve been trying these for a few weeks now, and my feet have never looked so beautiful. And on those days when I simply don’t have time for fancy soaks and scrubs and I want to get the job done FAST, I use the Skoother Skin Smoother. It’s the most effective way to quickly and easily smooth rough skin and calluses on your feet, heels, elbows and hands, and I saw noticeable results within 3 days of using it. I apply my favorite foot cream (Le Couvent des Minimes Hiker’s Foot Healer) and cotton socks after each use, and for the first time in my entire life, I’m all set for sexy, strappy sandal season.

I’m serious!
