It used to be that in winter, I could forget about the condition of my feet, because they were safely swaddled away in socks and boots – be they ankle booties or tall boots, depending on the style of the season.
Bu the past 2 years, thanks to (admittedly adorable) peep-toe ankle booties, toes are on display year-round.
Endless pedicures get expensive, so I like to find new products that help me prolong the amount of time I can go between pedicures.
Gold Mountain Beauty, a Boston-based family-owned business dedicated to natural, vegan and cruelty-free beauty products, has a line of care products dedicated entirely to feet. I gave two of them a shot!
First, Gold Mountain Beauty Cleansing Scrub Deodorizer. This gentle scrub is designed for use in the shower and combines the antibacterial properties of beeswax with SeaBerry fruit for cell regeneration and ginseng root extract for anti-aging properties.
It is an exfoliator, but it is gentle on skin and doesn’t hurt to use. The scrub helps remove dead skin from feet and softens and moisturizes cracked heels. It’s super fast and easy to use.
I like to use it first thing in the shower, before anything else, because it has a very “pepperminty” smell, and when combined with the steam of a hot shower, really helps clear up my nose and sinuses!
Once out of the shower, I use Gold Mountain Beauty Intensive Repair Serum to lock in the moisture and protect my freshly-exfoliated heels. It also keeps the moisture and repair going post-shower. The Serum includes tolnaftate, which has anti-fungal properties, as well as SeaBerry oil and olive oil for hydration and anti-aging properties.
How do you take care of your feet in the dry winter months? Let me know in the comments!
