Blessed are the feet of those who...take care of lots of kids

All you Hot Mamas, I need some advice.

Yes, advice.

As I think I have made abundantly clear - my beauty regimen is quite limited.  Ok, that's an exaggeration.  It's more like non-existent.  Not that I don't want to be beautiful and spend lots of time to look fabulous, but it's just not in my schedule...and no, you Prima Donna's out there who will tell me to just wake up an hour early to get beautiful, that will not happen.  I am quite limited on sleep as it is, I refuse to sacrifice yet another hour of sleep so I can do a vigorous beauty routine.  Ain't gonna happen.

Ok, with that said - here's where I need advice.

My feet.  How gross, I know.  I think feet are generally quite disgusting, so excuse this less than appealing post.  But I need help.  My feet are just not on the beautiful side to start with, but I've accepted that.  Some people can be foot models and others, well, they should always wear tennis shoes only revealing their feet to the people who love them the most.  I would be the latter.

But my heels are hideous.  They are so dry and disgusting and even painful at times.  Definitely NOT Hot Mama material, FOR SURE.  I would post pictures, but since I value your readership I will not expose you to such horrors.

So, I need a remedy.  Not a four hour long remedy that includes a foot soak and a pedicure (because although that sounds lovely, let's be reasonable.  If I barely have time to brush my teeth...let's be realistic) but a solution that I can do and it will give me gorgeous feet...ok, back to reality, feet that I don't feel embarrassed to bare in public.

Help!  Suggestions please!!!

There is this lotion you can get that will soften the skin on your feet and help heal the cracks (not sure of the name, but you can find it in the foot section of any grocery store). Just put it on at night when you go to bed and after you get out of the shower. Also, get a foot file and use it on your feet when you get out of the shower... before the lotion. It takes just minutes!

My miracle tool is a two sided file. Like this: http://bit.ly/cDV5J1 I don't know if mine is Sally Hansen's, but I got it at Walmart for about $4.00 or less. I use it all the time to really work on the callouses with the course size (like a microplane) and then "sand" it smooth.

But seriously, I give myself pedicures all the time. It is a stress reliever. I try to do it at least twice a month. I just fill a dishpan with warm water. I use the foot file, then soak, then scrub with some kind of sugar scrub or something, then push back my cuticles, moisturize, and polish my toes. :)

I spend more time on my feet than my face I think....which probably show. LOL!
