Feet and heels that are dry, cracked and thick with calluses are notoriously difficult to hydrate and smooth out. For those instances when no amount of lotions, balms or cheese-grater-like instruments can do the job, you might need this heavy-hitting exfoliating treatment that I keep in my bathroom cabinet, especially around summertime.
I initially heard about the Baby Foot peel a few years ago, and was intrigued not by so much by its name but by the incredibly gross-yet-satisfying before-and-after images that users would post online. Progress photos depicted heels that started off impossibly hard and deeply cracked, then showed those same layers of skin peeling off in sheets to reveal soft “baby-like” skin underneath.
Manual callus removers have always made me cringe and I was terrified of accidentally cutting myself. This peel offered a solution that was much less effort and, in my opinion, delivered better results. It uses a blend of powerful natural acids such as lactic, malic, glycolic and salicylic to slough of dead skin. If these names sound familiar, its because they are often found in some of your favorite facial skin care products in smaller concentrations. This heavy dose of exfoliants is also rounded out with soothing leaf extracts and hydrating oils to keep skin comfortable and nourished.
Each kit comes with two disposable plastic booties filled with the herbal-scented peeling gel. You place your feet inside the booties, secure them with included strips of tape, then leave them on for an hour before removing and washing the remaining solution off of your feet. After about five to seven days is when the exfoliating magic happens. Your feet will continue to peel for about another week or so, depending on how thick your calluses were before use, and ta-da! You are rewarded with fresh, silky and smooth feet that required zero scrubbing at all to get there.
