7 Foot Masks to Try Before Sandal Season
In the wintertime, we become accustomed to hiding our feet beneath socks and snow boots. But then, as spring approaches, we are able to finally unearth our feet and embrace flip flips and sandals. The only problem? After months of hiding (and let’s face it: neglect), our feet often look like they’ve been put through the wringer. Assuming you don’t want to welcome warmer weather with combat boots and fuzzy socks, it’s time to get your feet in tip-top shape. That’s where foot masks come in. These masks can help remove rough skin to make way for soft, smooth, sandal-approved feet! Give your feet the ultimate treat with our picks of the best foot masks, below.
Vena Beauty Exfoliating Foot Peel Mask
Dead skin cells aren’t only limited to the skin on your face. They can build up on your soles, too, which is definitely not a good look while you’re donning open sandals. That’s where this foot peel mask can help. Choose from two different scents—rose or lavender—and let it help smooth the feel of your feet! To use, start with clean, dry feet and apply the foot mask for 60 to 90 minutes, then rinse. Lock in moisture by lathering on some foot lotion afterwards.
With a name like Dr. Pedicure, you bet we were intrigued. Even more intriguing was the product’s claim to shed dead skin cells off within 5-7 days of use for soft, smooth feet. To use, place your feet inside the foot mask. Secure the booties around each ankle with the included tape. Place a pair of socks over the plastic booties and relax for about an hour. Once time is up, remove the booties and wash your feet. The peeling you’re set to experience may be totally gross, but it’s up to you to find out if it’s worth it!

To help rejuvenate your feet, turn your home into a mini spa when you apply Purederm’s Shiny & Soft Foot Peeling Mask. All you have to do is kick up your feet and binge-watch your favorite show while the mask gets to work for 60 to 90 minutes.
