Every year, when the first signs of warmer weather appear, when the first inklings of spring show, women far and near feel the same little nudging of fear and regret. Why oh why did we not take care of our heels throughout the winter?
You know what I’m talking about. That first day when the winter weather surprises you by actually being warm enough for those cute little sandals. So you pick out a cute spring-y outfit and go to slip on the sandals when that wave of fear creeps over you. As you slowly slip the strap over your heel you lightly feel with your fingers. You then venture to take a peek. “How old am I and who has replaced my young skin with this rhino hide?”
Heels go through their own little version of hell in the winter. They are mistreated and abused and are thought of oh, for about 3.2 seconds. But to me they’re one of the main things that can tell a woman’s age, or how well she takes care of herself. Ladies, heels must be thought about before that first spring-y day if you’re going to freely wear the footwear of your choice. At least a week before.
Many women quickly make an appointment with their pedicurist to take care of winter’s damage. I, however, am cheap frugal and logical and realize that I could do the same thing to myself without having to sit through a session of “what did she just say about me in that language I don’t understand?” You don’t need some kind of paraffin wrap, a leg massage and a dose of unsecure feelings in order to have great looking feet. All you need is this:
Well, something more on the left side of the picture. Those razor things on the right scare me. I couldn’t find my exact model online so I had to resort to picture taking:
This is my pedicure file. This is (hopefully) all you need along with some cute nail polish. Rub your heels (and other stubborn parts of your feet) with this every time you get out of the shower and I promise within a week your heels will feel smoother than a baby’s butt. That’s right, smoother. Then rub on some thick lotion and wear socks (if you can). I use Mary Kay’s Extra Emollient Night Cream:
Heels are smooth and youthful not old and rhino-y. So, while technically not free, a mere one-time $2.50 could get you baby-butt-smooth heels. And with the other $30 you could go buy some cool new sandals.
