It's no secret that when it comes to feet I'm no fan. Anyone's feet. It doesn't matter how great you think they look, they're FEET. Mom feet take a beating, and not just in the tired sense. Are you a working mom, or even working in general? You're running around in your 9-5 heels (or, in my case, slippers) and then running around the house, yard, pool (what-have-you) barefoot or in sandals (aka sort of barefoot). Just because you're busy or a parent doesn't mean you need to have "mom feet" (or "dad feet"). You can take 30 seconds to indulge. Ain't nobody got time for that? You got time for this.
First off, get yourself the Amopé™ Pedi Perfect Wet & Dry Rechargeable Foot File. You have no real excuse for having no time to do this. You can use this device in the shower and it takes about 30 seconds to do. For real, you better be showering at least a few times a week. Seriously, don't even tell me you're not. Amopé™ means "love your feet" in Portuguese and the easiest way to learn to love your feet is by making them smooth and giving yourself the confidence to run around freely with no socks or shoes!
Next, even in the warm months, I apply an argan oil all over my feet and also the thickest cream I can find. Then I put on heavy, cotton socks and let that all soak in while I do my minimal "mom day at home" makeup (generally a powder foundation, mascara, a little blush, brow gel and a lip balm). It makes you human. Or at least feel human.
Finally rip the socks off and find a nail polish. If you need to be super quick the lighter colors will work more in your favor than a dark, but I tend to gravitate towards reds. There are some good "one coat wonders" out there and that is a definitely time saver. Paint your toes and use a fast-drying top coat.
I know you're busy. The older you get the busier you get. If you have kids you're not only leading your own life but you're also fully immersed into theirs. Paying attention to the little details in ourselves helps keep us sane. Try it once and you'll see what I mean. ;) Think about it this way... in the time it took you to read this you could've pampered your feet! What were you thinking?! =D
