5 Ways to Soothe Sandal-Beaten Feet

Letting your feet fly free in the summer may feel good at first but after a long day pounding the pavement in strappy sandals they need some TLC. Taking care of your feet is just as important as taking care of the rest of your body—they support you, they keep you active, they give you an excuse to spend too much money on fabulous shoes! But tending to your treads is a unique process, one that must begin with a thorough cleansing. Sanitize your feet first and then follow up with a deep soak. Now that your tootsies have been primed and relaxed, emplore a quality scrub to slough away dead cells and break down troublesome calluses. Give your dogs a massage with hydrating lotion and finish by coating them in a night cream under a sock (a surefire way to lock in that moisture!) Follow these steps and more at InStyle magazine and learn how to keep yourself glowing with their broad range of summer skincare tips.

Beauty, Skin Deep!

Beauty is certainly within but make no mistake—plenty of us want to show a little of that glow off on the outside.  And like the pieces of fine art that we are (yes!), we need a flawless canvas to create.  A smooth, clean face is to your beauty regimen what a good bra is to your low-cut top, what a well-placed pair of Spanx is to your unforgiving bandage dress.  Some of us have good habits that just need to be improved upon while some of us need help finding those good habits (yeah we’re callin’ out all you don’t-take-my-makeup-off-before-I-go-to-bed criminals and don’t-use-sunscreen-everyday bandits).  One of Fashion Societe’s favorite skincare lines and reasons why we go makeup-less is Dermologica USA.  With a full range of cleansers, toners, SPF-packed moisturizers, and masques, it is both comprehensive and customized.  Gentle and with few frills, Dermologica provides simple, easy to maintain regimens with no artificial colors, flowery scents, or cheap fillers.  With product lines for everything from full body skincare to age-related blemishes, you’ll actually look forward to one-on-one time with your bathroom sink.  Still don’t believe us?  Talk to backstage makeup artists and any model-of-the-moment and they’ll tell you that Dermologica has been a longtime fashion standby.  Now, dahling, you’re ready for your closeup.
