7 Tips For Irresistible Catch-Me, Kiss-Me Feet

Dr. Suzanne Levine, celebrity podiatrist and author of "My Feet Are Killing Me" says a pedicure here and there isn't enough when it comes to foot care. Not only can the salon treatment be dangerous, but Levine stresses we really should be pampering our body's foundation more often. "People seem to neglect their feet," Levine says, noting that the oversight is a big mistake. "From calluses to cracked skin and nail issues , there's no other part of your anatomy that reflects age as dramatically."

So from fashion to function, Levine's mantra is treat your feet the way you treat your face. Here's how:

Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Beauty Secrets

1. Soak Your Feet
Soak your feet for 5-10 minutes in warm water and Epsom Salt, which helps eliminate toxins in the body. Aim to soak twice a week during sandal season since your feet are exposed to so many elements this time of year.

2. Scrub and Exfoliate Your Feet
Make a point to wash your feet (and between your toes and underneath your nails!) with a washcloth. Exfoliate the skin to combat build up. The key is minimizing callus formation. You'll notice your feet will start to feel as smooth as a baby's.

3. Foot Massage
A good rubdown will "bring oxygen and nutrients to your tissues and take away wastes. Massage your feet frequently — every day if you can — with motions to wards the heart (the direction of circulation) and your whole body will thank you.

4. Moisturize
Moisturize your feet after washing. During dry-skin winter months, you may want to moisturize several times a day.

5. Trim
Your toenails are arguably the main focus of your feet, so be careful when you're clipping. Cut them straight across  and don't cut into the sides, otherwise, you could get painful ingrown nails.

6. Whiten
Last season's dark polish might have left your nails a little dull. Apply a mix of hydrogen peroxide and baking soda  to brighten them.

7. Protect
Wear sunscreen! Our feet are one of the body parts we often forget, but be sure to slather it on from head to toe when you go out and about this summer.
