The Babyfoot Experiment

Generally I have smooth feet as I keep getting pedicures. However past month and half have been a nightmare. Finding apartments and then moving into one. All this left me with no time for myself and resulted in horrible looking feet. By horrible I mean really dry, rough heels and I had to hide them by wearing closed shoes all the time.

I took my roughed  up feet as the perfect opportunity to try out Babyfoot which was sent to me by their PR team. Babyfoot is a Japanese product tried and tested by bloggers worldwide. The results are satisfying for most but the process.. well not exactly beautiful.

Packaging

The product comes with two lavender scented gelled booties and a sheet of tape to secure the plastic booties at ankles.

Application

Super simple! Just soak your feet in water for about 10 – 15 mins. Once done, pat them dry and wear the booties. Secure with the given tape and do not move! Though the product doesn’t mention to stay still but I would certainly prefer not moving in those plastic booties so that the product works its magic.

The product mentions 60 minutes but as I was watching a movie, I completely forgot to remove them until it was 90 minutes. No harm to the feet and no itchiness whatsoever. I felt like some oil was applied on my feel and slightly slimy as I removed the booties.

Results

Day 1: Slight white marks on the heel and sole of my feet.

Day 2: Gets a bit freaky as the dry skin starts detaching itself.

Day 3: More dry skin peeling off, I covered my feet all the time during peeling process as it looks a bit weird.

Day 4: Slowly tugged out the peels to reveal soft skin beneath.

Day 5 : complete peeling was over and now baby soft skin revealed. The package mentions that peeling process may take upto two weeks, maybe that’s for worst case scenarios.

Post peeling care

It is recommended to not use any lotions and even scrubs for feet as all dead cells are already removed in peeling process.

The key to peeling is soaking your feet everyday post application for atleast 15 minutes as this softens the skin and helps in removing the dead skin.

Product is recommended to use once in every two months.

Verdict

I really liked the product except the peeling process that really is unique and a grossly satisfying experience. The product certainly delivers the promise of baby like feet. This revolutionary product is designed to soften the toughest of heels. What makes it so effective is the addition of keratolytic ingredients such as lactic acid, salicylic acid, alcohol & glycolic acid.

Babyfoot is available on Souq.com and in all leading drugstores & hypermarkets.

Ps: I took pictures of peeling process but I don’t want to share them as its not really a appealing sight)

5 Crazy DIY Beauty Remedies That Work!

There are beauty products/personal care products that can resolves skincare issues faster but most of them contain chemicals not necessarily harmful but you never know what causes you reactions. In such cases natural beauty remedies come to the rescue and they are totally safe to use. My grandmother has passed on these amazing DIY Beauty remedies that are very helpful for anyone. These remedies contain kitchen staples or ever something right from your refrigerator!

1) Mint & Parsley– These fresh herbs are a cheap alternative to glowing skin. Chop 2 sprigs of parsley and handful of mint leaves finely. Add these chopped herbs to a small bowl along with two teaspoon yogurt and mix well. Apply this mixture everyday for five days and see the difference. Folks with acne issues will love this remedy as it works well in reducing spots.

2) Garlic & Clarified butter– In a small pan, heat 3 tablespoon clarified butter (Ghee) and 3 cloves of garlic pricked with fork. As soon as the garlic starts getting brown, remove from heat and mash the garlic with the back of the fork. Apply this mixture on your feet to get rid of any dry, hard & cracked skin.

3) Salt & Vanilla extract– While there are many products to keep the lady parts clean, salt happens to be the safest of all. Fill the bathtub with warm water till it is good enough to immerse in, add 1 cup salt to it ,1 Teaspoon vanilla extract & let it dissolve. Get into the salt water bath and relax in it for 20 minutes. This will keep your lady parts clean and help you feel stress free.

4) Banana & Peaches – This is a very simple but my favorite remedy of all, It keeps your skin smooth and soft. Mash a banana and a peach together, apply on the face and leave for 15 minutes or until the mix dries off. Wash and see the difference in skin immediately!

5) Baking soda – Many say that using baking soda on skin is best for skin exfoliation. I disagree to that as I have personally tried it. Never worked for skin exfoliation but what it worked was for dandruff elimination. This one’s very simple.. 2 teaspoon baking soda & a small sachet of any normal type shampoo. Mix well and you will see that the baking soda is causing the mixture to rise. Apply on wet hair (make sure the scalp is covered with the mixture) and leave for 15 minutes. Try this twice a week for three weeks.
