MoisturizeHydrating skin is a crucial step in maintaining soft and supple feet. While skin is still damp, thoroughly massage a rich moisturizer in until fully absorbed. Try L'Occitane Shea Butter Foot Cream ($28, loccitane.com), which contains antiseptic lavender essential oil, anti-inflammatory arnica extract to help reduce redness and irritation, and refreshing mint to cool feet. Cur?l Foot Therapy Cream ($6, drugstores) is formulated with Shea butter, vitamin E and coconut milk, known for its anti-inflammatory benefits. An all-in-one treatment, Miss Oops Pedicure in a Bottle ($18, missoops.com) exfoliates, hydrates and soothes achy soles with cooling peppermint and menthol.
Shuetz also recommends taking preventive measures and moisturizing pre-workout. "Before running, applying foot cream will make skin more pliable and less susceptible to blisters," she says.
For a deep, nourishing treatment, try an overnight foot cream to heal painful cracked skin. We love Soap & Glory Heel Genius Amazing Foot Cream ($15, sephora.com), which rejuvenates feet in a single overnight session, giving even the roughest skin a run for its money. Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Foot Magic ($7, drugstores) makes it easy to pamper tired tootsies without a lengthy spa visit. Simply apply at bedtime to transform feet from dry to supple, with a soothing blend of pure mango butter, vitamin E and eucalyptus oil. Slather on generously, and slip into white cotton socks to let the healing begin. Wake up to naturally lovely feet.
