Fashionistas would agree that winter is all about the boots! When the temperature drops ladies run out to buy a new pair of boots to be fashionable and warm. But, there is a negative side to the tall, leather wonders that we zip up every day! Corns and calluses are the often the result. When we stand for hours in hard shoes our feet pay the price. Skin builds up on our heels causing them to become rough and cracked. The best way to prevent this from happening is to thoroughly moisturize your feet and exfoliate them regularly. A few of our favorite products for dry, cracked feet are:
SOLE is a handheld and rechargeable callus remover that offers an effortless and no-mess solution to uncomfortable, embarrassing calluses. This effective and user-friendly beauty tool features a portable, cordless design that is attractive enough to display on your bathroom counter. It may be used daily on tough calluses to gradually and effectively remove dry skin to reveal beautiful, smooth skin. Continue use to maintain soft, healthy feet year round.
Glytone Ultra Heel and Elbow Cream
Glytone Ultra Heel and Elbow Cream, this cream has one of the best ingredients that will take your feet from rough to smooth and it is called Glycolic. Glycolic acid is such a great ingredient because it helps to exfoliate the skin as well as reveal new skin with continual use.
Kneipp Healthy Feet Anti-Callus Salve
Kneipp Anti-Callus Salve, with soothing Calendula extract and pleasantly stimulating Rosemary Essential Oil, contains nourishing jojoba oil, skin-soothing panthenol and allantoin. It also contains 25% Urea which significantly improves rough, chapped and callused skin. The Anti-Callus Salve helps improve the appearance of callused skin in only 7 days. Skin is nourished, smoothing rough areas and improving texture. A study confirms that skin appearance and texture is dramatically improved. Suitable for rough, callused and cracked areas of feet.

Ever since I was a little girl I have been interested in skincare. I remember training myself when I was eight years old to sleep on my back to prevent getting wrinkles. So it’s only natural that I would grow up and become an esthetician. Being an esthetician at Skinstore we have access to some of the best skincare brands and products. I would like to share some of my all-time favorite products.
Honestly, I have not always been that great about wearing sunscreen. I felt like it was too thick and made my face look pasty plus my makeup wouldn’t stay on as well. I know sunscreen is the best product to use to protect your skin and prevent aging but sometimes it just didn’t seem worth it. Then I discovered SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion SPF 50, LOVE! It is a lightweight sunscreen with a perfect sheer tint that evens out my skin tone. My makeup no longer melts off my face and lasts all day. I recommend that everyone try this sunscreen. It’s truly amazing!
There are so many serums out there that promise the world, it can be overwhelming at times! Which products actually live up to what they claim? The Arcona Instant Magic Reversal Serum is exactly what it states, it’s magic! It’s everything you would want out of a serum. It’s corrective, hydrating and preventative. When I apply this serum my skin is instantly transformed. If I had only one skin care product to use this would be it.
Lastly, I have been blessed with a skin condition called hyperkeratosis pilaris. That is the scientific name for “I have ugly red bumps on the back of my arms and thighs”. These bumps are caused by having a blockage in the hair follicle. I have tried so many exfoliating creams and even microdermabrasion treatments to get rid of the bumps. Everything I have tried has either taken too long or is too costly. However Jan Marini Bioglycolic Resurfacing Body Scrub is affordable, fast and you see amazing results. I even use it on my chest and back to help diminish signs of sun damage. It has a light citrus smell and doesn’t leave your shower gritty with scrub. It is the perfect product for body care.
So out of the millions of products I have stored away in my bathroom these three products are my absolute favorites. I swear by them!
Here’s a must have list of my top three body products!
For an instant overhaul on my flip-flop worn feet, my sole-saver is Kneipp Healthy Feet Foot Repair. It’s a foot butter that delivers results! I love that it’s not too greasy and it absorbs quickly so I can slip into some sandals and be on my way. It has a fresh scent and soothing ingredients like Calendula Extract and Shea Butter. My heels feel much less cracked and my calluses almost disappear. Gives my feet a little energy and puts a spring back in my step!
To get smooth all over my go-to exfoliator is AHAVA Liquid Dead Sea Salt. From the first time I used this, I knew I loved it. It’s a liquid-gel that I just smooth all over two minutes before I get in the shower. When it rinses clean I have softer, smoother, exfoliated skin without any scrubbing, rough granules or any mess! A total win! Now I’m ready to apply my self-tanner and or a body lotion.
Speaking of lotion, my absolute favorite is Korres Jasmine Body Butter. I would bathe in this if I could and oh, I can because they have a matching shower gel. Score! The fragrance is so ultra-feminine and just beautiful. I would use it for that alone however, I also get anti-aging and uber hydration benefits without any ingredients I don’t want. You definitely get a healthy glow from this emollient dream. The Korres line is natural and made in Greece. They are known for their luxurious body butters that come in array of fragrances. There’s bound to be one that becomes your “signature scent”.

Let’s talk underarms. They’re the pits. They are pit-iful. They need a ton of TLC to stay looking smooth and healthy.
There are a few things you can do to prevent ingrown hairs, rashes, and tenderness when shaving your underarms. There are also a few tricks to getting a closer shave than ever before, and going longer between shaves, too!
Always shave in the shower or bath, when your skin is damp. Hot water softens the hair and the skin holds onto the hair less tightly when it’s damp. Never, ever dry shave, especially under your arms.
Always use shave cream or gel, and invest in a high quality razor. Your razor should have at least three blades and a moisture cushion around the blade. One-blade disposable razors shouldn’t have ever been made.
Because the hair under your arms grows in a circle type of shape rather than in one direction, it’s important to maneuver your blade to adjust to hair growth – always shave downwards first, then upwards, and then sideways if you have any strays. Don’t go over the area more than three times with your blade, and if you have any stubborn strays left remove them with tweezers post-shower.
Don’t apply deodorant or antiperspirant after shaving, let your skin rest overnight, or at least for a few hours. If you must use something then use a gentle or natural formula with soothing ingredients like aloe.
If you’re prone to getting bumps or rashes after shaving apply an aftershave gel post-shave, we like Shaveworks The Cool Fix because it’s soothing, cooling, and has glycolic acid to exfoliate the skin and prevent ingrowns.
