Hands up if your feet are looking a tad neglected? Are the perils of dry skin, calluses, dullness and tired, achy feet bringing you a feeling of meh and a want to hide them away?

Well, you can’t – summer is officially here for the taking and Scratch has rounded up the best scrubs, masks and peels you need to get your feet flip-flop ready.

1. Georgie Smedley Group Educator Amy Martin recommends applying a  foot scrub before popping on a foot mask to remove any dead skin cells. Amy loves the All That Jazz Hand and Foot Scrub, which contains three kinds of nourishing oils, perfect for a hit of moisture whilst the scrub works its magic. Amy adds, “The scrub is packed full of vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, C and E, which helps to heal the skin whilst conditioning it.” The product is also available in 4 yummy scents – Apple Cucumber, Chocolate Orange, Maple Spice, and Captivate – a lightly perfumed musk and coconut oil.                      all that jazz foot scrub2. The CND™ Marine SpaPedicure Cooling Masque is a cooling, mineral clay foot masque with hydrating sea extracts and botanicals for silky soft feet. The addition of natural menthol and spearmint oil helps calm inflammation and irritation, and leaves the feet feeling refreshed long after the masque is removed. “It’s a facial-like treatment, but for the feet,” comments a spokesperson from CND™. Who wouldn’t want that?
