Oh yes, am obsessed with cracked heels. Ewww.

I try not to look down but I just can't help it ...

The top of my feet are lovely; tanned, new nail varnished, and moisturised but I can#t sort out the bottoms. I scrub and scrub and use cracked heel stuff but it doesn't work on me. The balls of my feet have cracked and are so sore.

i think it is hereditary as my mum is same.

I am a lost cause.

Go to a podiatrist/chiropodist. They work wonders smile

Took my trendy orange toenail polish off last night and now have orange tallons - looks vile - so have stayed in dressing gown all day and not left house at all because I can't be arsed to paint them so it wasn't me - but will be when I go to the gym later - will wear blue plastic pool shoes into shower as not to offend any sensitive people like cod though!

mehga this is brilliant - ccs footcream

better than flexitol and less sticky

you need to use this first: scholl foot scrub

then a foot file

then csc cream all over (do it at night and wear socks)

you will have peachy feet

Nail varnish wouldn't help my feet. They are minging. I hate them. (Nothing wrong with my toenails though.) Please have pity on us ugly-footers, we need love too.

Question: if you have lovely soft skin on your feet, how do you avoid blisters?

Seen the advert for cracked heel cream with the close up of some womans' manky heels?

Makes me sick.

DeeRiguer Tue 05-Aug-08 14:01:10

My feet are in good nick, but are embarrassingly wide. Does that make me loathable? sad

derelicte Tue 05-Aug-08 14:03:11

fluffy - insist on being carried everywhere in a sedan chair.

MehgaLegs Tue 05-Aug-08 14:03:51

Ruby - that stuff looks good - will try.

RubySlippers Tue 05-Aug-08 14:05:03

it is - my chiropodist recommended it

you can get it in Boots

<<admires smooth heels>>

"women with NO nail varnish on"

god shoot them

shoot them now


TigerFeet Tue 05-Aug-08 14:06:29

How do I get rid of the bits of hard skin on the balls of my feet?

My feet - other than being as wide as they are long - are in good order otherwise

TigerFeet Tue 05-Aug-08 14:07:21

(no nail varnish but htat doesn't bother me tbh)

ConstanceWearing Tue 05-Aug-08 14:07:29

Yeah, horrid advert but the cream is brilliant stuff (worked for me anyway). I walked around despising the horrid common women with loofah-textured feet - and felt v v superior

(I've got wide feet too, Derelicte. My toes fall off the sides of most sandals blush grin )

fluffyanimal Tue 05-Aug-08 14:07:42

Derelicte - if only! grin

fluffyanimal Tue 05-Aug-08 14:09:04

Where do you wide-footers get your shoes? I find most things in high street too narrow these days. I can usually only fit the stuff in Evans.

Oliveoil Tue 05-Aug-08 14:10:08

my feet are fab

may I offer a tip for painting nails?

do feet at night, accompanied by tv and/or wine - soak, scrub, file, yadda yadda

then <<<drum roll>>> splodge nail varnish all over your toe nails, don't worry about it going on your skin

in the morning in the shower, scrub at your feet

excess nail varnish will be removed, leaving behind neatly painted nails

I thank yow


TigerFeet Tue 05-Aug-08 14:12:12

fluffyanimal - on the high street I'm restricted to Evans and Clarks but there are a few more places online
