Getting your feet in tiptop shape for summer requires more than just choosing the perfect nail polish color. You'll want to make sure that you're giving your soles a regular dose of TLC with foot cream.
"From calluses to cracked skin and nail issues, there's no other part of your anatomy that reflects age as dramatically," said Suzanne Levine, a board-certified podiatrist and the author of "My Feet Are Killing Me." Massaging with foot creams and balms eases aches and pains and treats extremely dry skin -- making feet look younger and feel softer.
Look for foot care products formulated with hydrating ingredients such as urea, shea butter and jojoba and macadamia oils that will penetrate deeper into skin.
Levine's best advice for moisturizing: lotion up each night, paying special attention to the heels. "Put some socks on, go to sleep and give your feet a good rub with the pumice stone in the morning," she said.
