Before you slip your feet into a pair of sexy heels-you have to undo any damage that accumulated over the summer and for some.. over the years. Think dry, cracked heels, forgotten cuticles and even unsightly toenail fungus. Here are some of the best ways to get your feet sexy in no time.
1. Get Pedicures
Get pedicures every two weeks. Try to keep your toenails cut short and square to prevent ingrown nails from forming. Never cut into the side of the nail bed, this will cause ingrown nails as well.

In addition to routine pedicures, moisturize your feet after the shower and wear cotton socks for a minimum of 30 minutes afterward.
