Some of you may already know that Liz has perfect feet.  She has a routine that she does every night that we will share with you today!  If you have been in the store and asked what’s good for your feet you have heard us sing the praises of The Balm.  The praised Balm is the an olive oil based body balm by 80 Acres, an olive oil and beauty company based in Northern California.   We love this balm so very much because it is 97% organic with a whopping 5 easily-read-by-your-average-third-grader ingredients.  You can visit us or buy it online here!

  1. Soak your dogs for 20 minutes to soften them up!  Try adding a cup of apple cider vinegar to soothe tired feet.  If you are in need of a little extra exfoliation use a little 80 Acres Salt Scrub.
  2. Dry your feet thoroughly and use a foot file to buff down rough areas.  We like these diamond files from Sephora.  They last forever and just need a scrubbing once in a while.
  3. Take your newly christened 80 Acres Body Balm and rub a generous amount onto your feet.  Then you can do one of two things: slap on a pair of squishy socks and go to bed or go about your morning routine, or do a round of yoga toes, which both massages your feet and over time helps prevent bunions.  Here is a good article with a yoga toes routine.
  4. Play some footsie.  You can find directions on how to do so here.
