I can’t remember the last time I was in a nail salon. You probably don’t either. Or maybe you do because the time away has been particularly difficult, despite saving major coin over the past few months. But now that summer is basically here and the number of reopened salons is on a very slow uptick, your feet are probably still in winter mode and in need of the best foot peel products. I’m talking calluses, flaking and skin that sounds like sandpaper because they’ve been hiding under thick socks and perhaps neglected in the midst of your low-key, stay-at-home beauty routine.
For many (including my mom), foot masks, foot peels or whatever else you want to call them are the must-have lifesaver for open-toe shoe season. Whether it’s a stylish slip-on bootie or basic wrap, all of them contain an insulated formula of exfoliants (alpha-hydroxy acids, beta-hydroxy acids, botanical extracts, etc.) that go beneath the skin surface to encourage dead cells to naturally fall off.
Some, like the infamous cult-favorite Baby Foot, take as long as one week for peeling to begin, while others take just a couple days to drastically reduce flaking and soften hard calluses. With that being said, here are some more of the best foot peel products that will not only force you to take a break, but literally shed your neglected winter skin, too.
