After months of hiding your feet in boots and socks, sometimes you need a little help to get your toes back into ready-to-show-the-world shape. Until this Friday, Julep–a Seattle-based nail polish and tools company–is giving an exclusive Real Simple discount on some of my favorite picks for pretty feet.
When I met with Jane Park, CEO and founder of Julep, a few weeks ago, I told her how much I loved her foot cream for at-home pedicures. What she told me: For the best pedicures, the secret is to use the trio of products above together. Follow these quick steps to get feet silky smooth, then finish with an application of your favorite nail polish.
First, apply Best Pedi Prep Ever! ($20, julep.com) to any rough, callused spots on your heels and toes. Chamomile extracts soften the skin, and the roll-on packs a high quantity of alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) to effectively exfoliate.
Next, use the Foot File to remove dead skin and smooth your heels ($6, julep.com).
Finally, generously apply the rich (but fast-absorbing) Best Pedi Creme Ever! ($22, julep.com). This, too, contains AHAs to continue natural exfoliation, while shea butter and coconut oil deeply moisturize.
For a limited time, Julep is offering RS.com readers 50 percent off when you buy a set that includes all three products. Click on this link and add the kit to your cart, then at checkout enter the code REALSIMPLE.
