1 – Don’t wait until your heels are rough and dry before you start paying attention to them again. Apply a good foot cream at least once a day – try Pedi Relax Moisturising Cream, R79,95 (Dis-Chem).

2 – Exfoliate your feet twice a week and gently file away any rough and dry skin as soon as it appears. If you address these issues as soon as they arise, you can stretch your next pedicure appointment by weeks.

3 – Consider having gel polish applied to your toenails instead of regular nail polish. It’s chip resistant and can last for up to six weeks without becoming dull or showing any signs of wear and tear.
