If you’re anything like me, it’s a bit of a shock when those socks finally come off in favour of strappy sandals and Fitflops. Feet that have been ever so cosy all winter don’t bear close scrutiny in the harsh light of a sunny spring day. Hard skin, dry patches and a general air of neglect is what I found, so I reached straight away for Saaf Pure Skincare Organic Foot Softening Balm – one night of (more) socks to lock in the moisture and the following day my feet were unbelievably softer and more respectable. A couple of hard skin patches on my heels will take a little longer, but I’m dabbing away with the Balm and dusting off my Jimmy Choos!
