Summer means it’s time to pull out the flip-flops and sandals and let your feet breathe for a few months, but first, it’s a good idea to make sure your feet are ready for the extra exposure. The manicure and pedicure specialists at New Paradise Men’s Spa in New York City want the modern men who count on their services to be prepared. That’s why they’ve offered these tips for making the transition from socks to sandals.
5 Ways to Get Your Feet Ready for Sandals
1. Don’t Be Afraid to Get a Pedicure
Pedicures are for men who like to be pampered and look well-groomed. Dipping your toes in one of the men’s spa’s soaking tubs is safe and sanitary, and treatments include having your nails cut, cuticles removed, and your legs exfoliated. Once you try it, you’ll never want to go back to your old routine. You’ll probably be surprised with how relaxing it is, and your feet will look better, too.
2. Don’t Forget the Lotion
It’s easy to forget that your feet need moisture, but using lotion will make your feet look younger by preventing dryness and cracks. On the other hand, cracked skin in sandals can become infected and uncomfortable.
3. A Stone Can Make a World of Difference
Almost everyone develops hardened patches of skin on their feet, but leaving them unchecked is a great way to develop scaly, all-too-noticeable areas. Using a pumice stone to rub those hard patches away will keep your skin soft and supple. Ask your manicure and pedicure technician to add the treatment to your regimen.
4. Don’t Neglect Your Nails
Nothing kills a first impression or romantic encounter like unkempt nails. If you do nothing else, make sure you keep your toenails trimmed, and avoid letting them linger in moist places. That’s a great recipe for fungus. If you get pedicures, a professional will spot and treat discolored nails before they become a major turnoff.
5. Use Sunscreen
Once your feet are primed for flip-flops or sandals, protect them from the sun with a liberal amount of sunscreen. The skin on your feet is every bit as vulnerable to developing skin cancer as the rest of your body.
