Many people can’t stand the sight of feet. I’m no fan either, but I respect the foot and all its glory. You don’t have to have a foot fetish in order to appreciate a nice-looking foot. Have you ever been with a guy with horrible looking feet? Sure, he has a nice face, but those toenails are looking pretty green. Yuck.
17 home remedies for pretty feet
Although many people aren’t interested in feet, at the same time, you want to have a nice-looking pair of paddles, right? Even if no one notices when you have pretty feet, at least they won’t be grossed out because you don’t. So, try some of these tips so people might actually start to admire your feet.
#1 Embrace your feet. Love your feet. They have their imperfections, but they’ve taken you this far in life. If you think your feet are ugly, get over it. You need to love them. That way, you’ll actually want to take care of them as opposed to covering them with socks and hope no one peeks at them.
#2 Go easy on the heels. If you wear high heels every day, you’re not doing your feet any favors. You can wear heels, however, try to minimize wearing them as much as possible because they’re very hard on your feet and lower back.
But, don’t worry, you can still look cute and fashionable by wearing a lower heel or a cute ballet flat. [Read: Feet fetishes – how to incorporate feet into your sex life]
#3 Wash your feet daily. Your feet spend a lot of time sweating in socks, and that doesn’t lead to pretty feet. They also get dirtier than any other part of your body. So, wash them daily. If you can wash your feet twice a day, that would be ideal. Wash them in lukewarm water and dry them with a soft towel. Think of them like a baby – be gentle.
#4 Weekly foot soaks. Who wouldn’t want to have a foot soak? They’re so relaxing. Fill your bath with lukewarm water and put in a quarter of a cup of Epsom salts and a couple drops of coconut oil. This will smooth and soothe your feet after a long week of work.
#5 Exfoliate them weekly. You know those people who have the soles of their feet as thick as molasses? Yeah, that comes from not exfoliating. By exfoliating on a weekly basis, you reduce the risk of developing calluses or corns – both look highly unpleasant. Soak your feet for a couple minutes and then use a stone or pumice to remove dead skin cells.
#6 Moisturize. Soft feet are pretty feet. You probably think your feet are resilient to wear and tear, which they are. But if you want your feet to look baby-smooth, you’ll need to moisturize.
Have you ever seen cracked feet? It’s because they’re not being moisturized. So, before you go to bed, take some time to moisturize your feet. You can even wear socks over top to help allow the moisture to soak into your feet. [Read: 18 ways to look pretty and sweet and catch his eye]
#7 Don’t overgrow the nails. Have you ever seen pretty feet with overgrown nails? Yeah, I didn’t think so. I know you saw the Guinness book of records for the longest nails – don’t try to beat the record.
Trim your toenails. It takes five minutes and can drastically change the appearance of your feet for the better. Not only that, trimming your toenails prevents ingrown nails which are extremely painful if left unattended.
#8 Daily “feet time.” Take some time out of your day to give or get a foot massage. Not only do feet massages feel amazing, but they actually aid in improving circulation, relieving inflammation and help you get a better sleep. If you spend five minutes a day on your feet, your feet will thank you.
#9 Don’t pick the cracks. Yuck. This definitely won’t lead to you having pretty feet. If your feet are dry, they’ll probably start cracking. Whatever you do, do not pick the cracks. I know it looks bad, and you think that picking the skin will help the situation, but it won’t. Instead, moisturize your feet. You’ll notice a difference within a couple of days.

#10 Exercise those toes. Many people forget about their feet when it comes to stretching. But, if you’re experiencing inflammation or pain, stretching can help reduce these symptoms. You want to rotate your feet clockwise and counterclockwise ten times each way. Then, stretch your toes forward and backward ten times each.
#11 Stay hydrated. If your heels look like you’ve just walked through the trenches, maybe you’re not drinking enough water. One of the symptoms of chronic dehydration is dry feet. So, drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. You might not think there’s a connection between water and pretty feet, but there is.
#12 Use natural foot softeners and smoothers. You can go to the store and buy smoothing creams, but you can actually save your money and just look in your kitchen for feet softeners and exfoliants. [Read: 25 ways to look cute and melt any guy’s heart effortlessly]

With the oil still on your feet, put on a pair of socks and keep them on for an hour. Then, gentle rinse the oil from your feet and pat dry.
#14 Honey. If you need a moisturizer, consider using honey for pretty feet. Try opting for raw, natural honey as it has exceptional antibacterial properties. Put a couple of tablespoons of honey and mix it into a bucket of warm water. Soak your feet in the bucket of water for 20-30 minutes. Rinse off and pat dry.
#15 Potato juice. If your feet are looking haggard after the summer, you probably forgot to apply sunscreen. Don’t worry, just use potato juice to get them looking soft and fair.
