Go Ahead-Go Bare!

Here in Hawaii, we spend the majority of our time barefoot. Sure we wear sandals quite a bit, but no one wears shoes in the house. It is customary to take off one's shoes before entering a person's home. Walk up to any front door and you will see a pile of shoes waiting to be retrieved. Of course, we do wear shoes sometimes. When we're not at the pool or the beach, our favorite pair of flip-flops walk several miles. With the moisture level here, our skin rarely gets dry, but all that time sans shoes can leave the heels of our feet dry and cracked. What is a girl to do?

The pastor's wife at our church recently gave a useful tip at a women's potluck. She learned it from a friend and passed it along to us. That's just how we ladies do it! We like to chat, so when we get a great tip, we gladly share it. That is afterall, what this blog is all about. So here's a quick beauty tip for the day:

Silky Smooth Feet Recipe

1. Take a pumice stone and gently exfoliate the bottoms of feet in the shower or tub.

2. Apply pure Vitamin E oil to the bottoms of feet. Be especially liberal with the heels.

3. Put on a pair of your favorite socks and leave them on overnight.

That's it! Your done. Do this often and watch as your dry, cracked heels become soft and smooth again! You can pick up Vitamin E oil at a drug store or your favorite health food store. Here's to happy feet!


  1. Wow! Thanks for the tip. It sounds so simple!
    I'm following this blog as well now! :)

  2. Love love Vit E oil..I use it on my feet mixed with avocado oil every night. If your feet are really really dry you can buy special socks that will not absorb the oil so your feet get extra moisture:)

  3. Yes, it is so simple! And I love avocado oil as well. There are so many simple remedies in nature-I can't wait to blog about them!!

  4. Thanks very much, I will try this, I am always having problems with my feet. I have just started to follow you.
