Here we are, officially smack-dab in the warm haze of mid-summer. We’re enjoying that outdoor life as fully as possible before fall sneaks up on us, and by this point, our feet could use a little extra attention – and we have a feeling you might be in the same boat. Between summer trips, weekends camping or out at the lake, and evenings on patios, we know you don’t have time to be hitting up the salon for a pedicure constantly, so we’ve rounded up some of our favourite foot care products for a little at-home TLC.
Using a regular body lotion here is probably not going to cut it. Your best bet is a deep moisturizer designed specifically for your overlooked and overworked feet.

If your feet have really been through the ringer this summer, a good foot file is the trick to wearing those less-is-more shoes to the summer weddings, showers, and parties on your calendar. The type of file you’ll like best depends on the extent of your situation – if you just need some buffing, a basic two-sided file will be perfect. If you’ve got some deeper, tougher cracks or calluses happening, opt for a more intense metal style like this diamond file.
Two-Sided Exfoliating Wooden Foot File: The Body Shop, $8
