A scary thing happens when spring comes in Michigan. We finally take off our winter boots and socks.

Yes, after nearly seven long months of being bundled up, we are forced to uncover our feet and begin thinking about wearing sandals. (Gasp!) My feet are always a wreck come spring despite my best efforts to keep feet soft and smooth during the colder months.

Not to worry—nature has given us some wonderful tools to remedy dry, rough and generally gnarly feet. By following this simple and luxurious two-part spa treatment, your feet will be on their way from ghastly to gorgeous!
