Baby Soft Feet In A Flash


I was sitting in the bath tub the other night while gazing fondly at my razor, thinking it's been a good razor. But sadly all good things must come to an end. It was looking worn and rough and needed to be thrown out with the trash. It would get the privilege of shaving my legs one last time and then bye, bye, bye.

As I'm shaving, all the benefits of shaving start to flow though my mind. Hair free skin, of course, but smooth exfoliated legs was at the top of my list. And I started thinking. If a razor can give me smooth, soft skin, maybe it can give me smooth soft feet too. So after I finished shaving my legs, I took my razor to my feet, or rather my heels. This is just my everyday razor, nothing special. As I began shaving my heels, I noticed the skin collecting in the razor blades and falling off. I couldn't believe my eyes. I was in disbelief.  By the time I was done, I had nice, soft, smooth feet. Clearly this was too easy. Did I really just shave all the dead rough skin off? I was flabbergasted.

So for the past few weeks, I've been shaving my feet. First I shave my legs and then take the razor to my heels. I go over the heel a few times and watch the dead skin peel up and fall off. I do use a tiny bit more pressure than I do on my legs. It is thicker skin after all. And I stop when there just isn't any more skin collecting in the blades.

The great thing about using just your plain jane razor (mine is a Gillette Venus) that you shave your legs with....your not going to slice off soooo much skin that it leaves raw areas. You have a built in gauge with the blades. You're shaving off just a bit at a time. I also think it helps when your feet are immersed in warm water for several minutes prior to help soften the dead skin. Just like getting a pedicure, but this pedicure is quick and easy, like really fast. Honestly, I think it's life changing. Does anyone else do this? With the razor you shave your legs with? Is this a kept secret? That I didn't know about? I have since been informed of callus razors. I didn't know such a thing existed. And frankly they look a tad bit scary. I get pedicures regularly and have never seen such an instrument pulled out. 

I must say, my heels are pretty damn nice now. They even feel better than when I use my actual feet exfoliating products like a grater, pumice stone or scrub. I wish I had before and after pictures to show you. But that would mean I'd have to stop shaving my feet and let them get gross again. And that my friends is not happening. I happened upon this as if by some accident or miracle. So one night after you're done shaving your legs, take that razor in your hands and shave your heels. You too will be amazed and flabbergasted!

Watch below to see just for yourself.

I never thought to do this, but it makes sense! I came across another good tip, after shaving, put hair conditioner on your legs and leave on for a few minutes and then rinse. When I first taught my daughter how to shave, she by accident put conditioner on her legs and her legs were super soft and smooth after, so I tried it and it works great! Thanks for sharing your idea, I will definitely try it.

I would just take care when doing this, it's easy to shave off too much when your skin is damp is soft!
