Because your little footsies march up and down the Parisian pavement all day long, treat them to the cocooning program they really deserve.Here are 5 easy steps to start the day on the right foot and trot along happily.
Chilling with your feet in water

The purpose of a foot-bath? To make your footsies feel more supple and soften hard skins.
How to go about it: fill a basin with lukewarm water. Add the equivalent of a Herborist cap and mix.
Dip for 15 minutes, while the product absorbs the dead skins. Then dry your feet well, including between the toes.
Système D? Instead of the treatment, pour two or three tablespoons of sea salt, preferably non-refined. Or, try adding a few drops of essential oil (peppery mint, geranium, chamomile …).

The heavy artillery? The Pedi Foot Transformation System kit by Clarisonic includes an electric brush for the feet -based on the same system as their iconic cleansing brush for the face-- two interchangeable heads and the products that go with it.
In fact it’s important to use the smoothing disc twice a week on dry feet. Then use the exfoliation brushing head with the regenerating scrub. Keep up the good work on a daily basis, under the shower, using the brushing head on the rebel zones (heels, soles, toes).
Pedi Foot Transformation System, Clarisonic, 199€.
Exclusively at Sephora and on www.clarisonic.fr.
For a softer method, try old-fashioned house scrub: freshly squeezed lemon juice + powdered sugar, to massage on the feet.
