Get your feet and pins prepped for their annual airing.

If you’ve spent the last year with your legs wrapped in loungewear and your toes shoved in slippers, the idea of peeling back the layers and getting holiday-ready may feel even more of a momentous task this year. Whilst we’re firm believers that every body is beach body ready, you may be thinking about a few rounds of seasonal exfoliating, moisturising and prettifying before heading off on hols. If so, we have some ruthlessly effective as well as some simply beautifying foot and leg products up our sleeves that will give your pins a boost before hitting the beach.

Patchology


Best Foot Forward Softening Foot & Heel Mask, £10


If you can’t face the downtime of a foot peel treatment, these nourishing and softening foot masks give equally baby-soft results, thanks to a gently nourishing mix of shea butter and hydrating coconut oil. The insulated booties use the body’s own heat to accelerate the intense moisturising effects, leaving toes silky, conditioned and sandal-ready. Buy it here.


Sol De Janeiro


Samba Foot Fetish Care, £25


From the Brazilian brand, Sol Janeiro, makers of the infamous body moisturising Bum Bum Cream, the Samba Foot Fetish Care kit will have you dancing around your bathroom, leaving toes supple, smoothed and smelling deliciously of tropical jasmine and vanilla. The set includes a pedi emery board to buff before you moisturise with the non-slip formula, enriched with cupuaçu butter, coconut oil and açaí oil. Perfect for those who need to apply and go. Buy it here.


Margaret Dabbs


Foot Cooling and Cleansing Spray, £19


From the London-based doyenne of the ‘medi pedi’, Margaret Dabbs’ deodorising foot spray may not be the most glamorous addition to your summer beauty kit, but trust us – it’s a lifesaver on warm weather days. Designed to cool and tone, with odour-neutralising lemon myrtle oil, soothing elderflower and refreshing apple extract, it’s a spritz of relief for tired, heavy legs. Buy it here.


Legology


Lymph Lite Boom Brush for Body, £16


Legology, the first leg care specialist brand, has a range of lotions, potions and gadgets to not only beautify, but improve ‘leg wellbeing’. Its Boom Brush encourages blood circulation and lymphatic drainage to depuff, tone skin texture and buff away dry skin. A fad-free, simple step to add to your daily routine that will reap visible results. Buy it here.


Bloom & Blossom


Leg Serum, £29


An instantly quenching leg reviver after a long day, Bloom & Blossom’s Leg Serum demands that your pins are given the same TLC as the rest of your skincare routine – and rightly so. It pampers pins with a mix of hydrating, vitamin-rich aloe leaf juice, brightening peppermint leaf oil (which makes it smell instantly uplifting too) and a seaweed extract which ensures the silky serum is absorbed almost instantly, so you can get dressed and on with your day. Buy it here.


Nails Inc


Tootsie Tamer, £10


This ergonomically designed, professional-grade foot file – aka the Tootsie Tamer – is the perfect upgrade from a standard pumice. A mix of sleek rose gold curves and a super smoothing exfoliator, it will soften heels and soles gently yet effectively. A great bit of kit to have on hand between pedis for some DIY maintenance. Buy it here.


Anatome


Restorative Foot Balm, £24


Footcare SOS in a tub, this deeply nourishing and restorative rich balm for cracked or super dry feet is enriched with organic botanicals and plant-based oils to soften and repair. With anti-inflammatory shea butter, omega-rich jojoba and apricot oils, it is heavenly scented, with the naturally antiseptic trio of peppermint, spearmint and tea tree. An uplifting, yet nurturing salve for sorry summer feet. Buy it here.
