yes to summer feet, no to summer teeth

In ALL, PREENING by Stephanie Klein9 Comments

Summer teeth, as in “some are here and some are there.” Not good. What is good? Japanese beauty. And I’m bringing it ON. These posts have been long overdo since my trip to Japan. First up, the foot. The miraculous peeling foot. So gross that it’s glorious.

Feet don't fail me now! So gross that it's glorious! That's peeling dead skin!

Firstly, there is Baby Foot, a Japanese product you can buy online or at Target. To be honest, for me, it was meh. I wasn’t losing dead skin in sheets like in the photo above, no. But I’ve heard from some that it works just as well. And to be fair, I didn’t follow the instructions, which were written in Japanese, duh. I kept the slimy treatment booties on my feet for the time specified, then washed and dried my feet. The following day, however, I put cream on my feet. A big NO. Now you know, too. But here’s the pearl: I went all the way to Japan, just to tell you this. Use this product instead! It’s cheaper and better. I can’t name it because, well, it’s in Japanese. But it’s so damn disgusting. You’ll love it.

  1. I’m so fascinated by this and am tempted to try but also seriously frightened. What kind of chemical is in it that makes your skin peel like that? Has anyone else tried?

      It doesn’t hurt and it’s not scary. It’s awesome.
      “The box comes with two plastic-bag booties already lined with the magic gel, a combination of “17 types of natural extracts” according to the website. The ingredients list mainly fruit acids, but also the stuff you’d typically find in a chemical peel: glycolic, lactic, and salicylic acids, as well as alcohol.”

  2. Don’t be tempted to wear flip-flops or flimsy sandals all through the summer. They don’t provide support for your feet and can give you arch and heel pain if you wear them for too long.

      I don’t know, maybe because cream hydrates the feet and interrupts the process of shedding. You may, however, soak your feet in water which promotes the shedding. I just know I once tried and used cream and got horrible results.
