We need foot cream more than we'd like to admit. Most of the time, all we give our ashy, dry heels is a pass of leftover body lotion in the morning. By the time we've made it halfway through the day, our feet are back to looking sad and pasty, which is by no means cute in sandals — or if we're walking around the house barefoot in quarantine, for that matter.
Even though foot cream is an extra step, it'll help keep your toes and heels looking and feeling supple all day — even if it's been months since your last pedicure. One caveat, though: Not all foot creams are created equal. Some of them are so lightweight, it doesn't feel like they're doing much of anything — while others are so greasy that running out to get the mail in in slippery flip-flops becomes a harrowing experience.
To help your toes live their best lives, we rounded up some of our favorite formulas for soft, fresh feet, ahead.
