InStyle beauty director Amy Synott-D’Annibale stopped by Kathie Lee & Hoda to give tips on how to get rid of dead skin and calluses left on your feet from wearing boots all winter long. She gave tricks for feet of different ages and suggested certain products for different foot damage. Among them were the Micro-Pedi and the LCN Urea Callus Remover.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: LCN Urea Callus Remover Review
Amy said that during your 20s, your feet are resilient, however after spending months in boots and cold weather, there is some work to be done. She suggested giving your feet a “foot facial,” by soaking your feet in warm water and Epsom salt twice a week.
She said to always wear sunscreen on your feet when they are exposed to the sun, even when wearing open-toed shoes. She also suggested applying a repairing lotion to your feet at night and then wearing socks to bed to moisture your feet as you sleep.
Another product recommended was the LCN Urea Callus Remover, a product that will reduce calluses quickly.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: KillerKushionz Review
Amy said that women in their 30s will notice pain in their heels because they are losing the fat cushions on their feet. To help with that pain, Amy suggested only wearing heels for two to three hours at a time. However, she said if you insist on wearing heels, use foot petal cushion inserts, like those made by KillerKushionz, to help with the heel pain.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: Vitamin E Nourishing Nail Polish
After 40 years of wearing nail polish, Amy said your toenails will most likely be discolored. To reverse the discoloration, she suggested filing the tops of your toes and applying a nourishing nail polish. When looking for a nourishing polish, she said that a polish with Vitamin E and tea tree oil will do the trick.
Kathie Lee & Hoda: Micro-Pedi Review
Sun spots on your feet is the damage Amy addressed for women in their 50s. She said to remove these spots, use lightening agents with hydroquinone or licorice extract. “You want to use the same ingredients as you would use on your face,” Amy said. She suggested using a Murad serum on sunspots and investing in a Micro-Pedi that will take the hardest calluses off of your heels.
She also said that you must be religious about putting on creams and lotions every night with socks. When looking for a good foot lotion, she suggested looking for one with shea butter.
