About this time each winter my skin really starts to dry out. When I get out of the shower in the morning the first thing I do is give everything a good slather of lotion. During the day I have to apply hand cream multiple times, and I don't dare go anywhere without my lip balm. However, even with all that attention there are some body parts that need even more.
Like my lower extremities.
For the past few days my feet have been really rough, and my heels were so cracked that they snagged every time I put on a pair of polyester socks! I knew it was time for some serious foot pampering.
Last night when I went to bed I applied a heavy coat of my richest body butter to my feet, adding even extra to the really dry parts of my heels. Then I put on a pair of comfortable socks and headed to bed. When I woke up my feet were so much softer, and the pair of socks I chose slid on smoothly.
