3 Steps to baby soft feet

Walking around barefoot or wearing flip flops can really dry out your heels. Do you get dry, cracking, flaky, tough heels too? We've got a simple solution. Follow our steps for three days and you'll see amazing results.

HEAL YOUR HEELS

Let feet dry for three minutes, then pull on cotton socks. Works best if you can sleep all night like that, or do it during the day and put on socks. Next time you bathe, use an exfoliating tool or loofa to scrub those babies. Then, reapply lotion + all over ointment each night until your heels are healed.You should see improvement in one night!
