Self-care can sometimes be as simple as giving yourself a mini pedicure and what better time to freshen up than Summer? We’ve lined up our favourite vegan and cruelty-free products to get your feet looking gorgeous for those long days on the beach.
Pumice Power! This pumice bar from LUSH is super easy to use, you just rub on wet skin and it exfoliates to leave you with silky smooth skin. It not only smells amazing but also does the job and it’s plastic free!
If you want to scrub your way to gorgeous feet but prefer to DIY, check out this post from Vegetarian Beauty Products which has 5 different recipes to whip up a homemade alternative.
This gorgeous foot mask from The Organic Foot Company is zesty, fresh and sure to put a spring in your step! Apply to clean, dry feet and wrap in a towel, leave for 15 minutes and soak off! Easy and an excuse to put your feet up for a moment…
MOISTURISE! MOISTURISE! MOISTURISE!
Moisturising your feet every day is sure to get them looking and feeling lush, though let’s be honest – we all forget about our feet. Start by moisturising a couple of times a week and try to build it into your routine. We love Farmer’s Foot Cream, it comes in a tin screw top pot, so no plastic here and contains tea tree, lavender and rosemary all from local sources.
POLISH TO PERFECTION
Cruelty-free and non-toxic nail varnish has never been easier to find. We love the Orly Breathable range, Orly are a vegan, cruelty-free brand delivering gorgeous colour to adorn your toes with. On top of that, they’re made in the USA and are a family run business. Perfect!
The Peppermint Cooling Foot Spray from The Body Shop is cooling and refreshing, making it perfect for the summer months. A long standing favourite of ours, it smells divine and feels amazing. Great for keeping at work to spritz on after that morning commute!
LUXURIOUS SUMMER SHOES
What better way to show off your newly revived summer feet than in some Beyond Skin shoes? Here’s some of our summer favourites to show off in!
Show-stopping strappy sandals in our glamorous Icaro geometric print, ideal for dancing the night away. Hand cut and hand made in Spain as part of our limited edition Boutique collection. We love these with bare legs or with jeans to make a casual outfit super special.
Show off those painted toes in the Flora, a retro vegan mid heel sandal in faux snake, with adjustable ankle strap. A total must-have this summer, as animal print still takes the lead.
A classic stiletto sandal, great for red-carpets, parties or fancy brunches, we love these in black faux snake (though we do also have a deep fuchsia version which is equally gorgeous). These look amazing with, well, anything really and are a super versatile heel to have in your wardrobe for those occasions when you want to wow in a minimalist way…
