Are your feet in need of a little makeover?
If you’re like most of us who are spending more time at home due to the pandemic, it could be a great time to experiment with our Peeling Socks … aka an at-home foot peel. Give your feet some love and care this winter with our intensive Peeling Socks, and put your best foot forward. Tough skin and calluses don’t stand a chance!
Here’s everything you need to know about our Peeling Socks:
What are Peeling Socks?
Essentially, our Peeling Socks are like a facial for your feet. These single-use foot masks pull on like regular socks and are infused with a blend of sugarcane-derived acids (AHA/BHA), lavender, and herb extracts to break down dead skin and thick calluses in one convenient, gentle treatment–no scrubbing needed. Plus, they’re lavender-scented to help you kick back and relax!
These Peeling Socks are ideal for those who are on their feet all day or fitness enthusiasts who walk or run a lot. If your feet are dry or cracked, exfoliation is the best way to eliminate dead skin build-up to reveal healthy skin underneath. Exfoliating regularly also helps your skincare products to absorb better. Foot lotions will be able to effectively moisturize your skin below the surface for longer periods of time, which is important, especially in the winter time.
How do Peeling Socks work?
Our Peeling Socks require minimal effort for maximum results. For all of those times you can’t make it to a salon, they are a great solution for at-home foot care in between pedicure sessions to keep your feet feeling silky smooth. Our Peeling Socks are pre-filled with 100% vegan ingredients to deeply penetrate thick layers of dead skin. For the best results, we recommend soaking your feet for ten minutes in warm water to soften dead skin cells. After you are done soaking your feet, remember to dry them completely before putting the Peeling Socks on.
Once you open the package, cut below the seal line on each sock to open them up. Be sure to open the inner fabric and place both feet inside. The dual-layer technology is designed to lock in the ingredients. Affix them with the attached stickers for a perfect fit. Put a pair of tight-fitting socks over the Peeling Socks for better absorption of ingredients. The soft material hugs the contours of your feet for gentle, yet effective exfoliation. Wear the Peeling Socks for 90-120 minutes (if you’re binge-watching your favorite TV show, that’s the perfect time to try them!) Once you remove the socks, wash your feet thoroughly and wait for the magic to begin!
When will my dry skin start peeling off?
Be patient … you will have to wait for the peeling process to start naturally. After the treatment, when you shower or take a bath, gently rub damp feet to get the peeling process started. Dead skin will typically begin to peel off on its own within 7-10 days. Do not pick at your skin; try to let it fall off when it is ready. For extremely callused heels, though, using a foot file can help to remove dead skin. While your feet are still peeling, try to avoid moisturizing until your old skin is completely gone. You may find this process completely gross or wildly satisfying (or a bit of both), but we promise you the results are worth it! Your skin will feel silky soft, flake-free, and renewed. Skin will also look shinier, brighter, and healthier.
Have a special event coming up? Maybe it's a wedding, a birthday party or a vacation promising plenty of barefoot time. You'll want your feet to finish peeling before the event, so planning to use our Peeling Socks a few weeks prior is a good rule of thumb. Your feet should remain smooth for a minimum of one month all the way up to three months after your treatment, depending on your day-to-day care. Don’t forget to moisturize daily!
