"Ouch," I moan, feeling as if I'm walking on glass. I don't know if I should blame it on age or my diabetes, or both, although I do know one of the main culprits. My feet become cracked and skin feels like it's splitting more and more lately. And something I'm doing makes it worse. Before I go into it in more detail, I wanted to apologize.
The weeks are passing by so quickly now that I'm working full time as manager of Dignity Home Care Professionals in Pittsburgh. On many a day, I fully intend to blog. And then we get busy at the office, I work into the evening, arrive home for a late dinner, and crash on the couch. Well, maybe tomorrow, I think. Then I fall into the same pattern the next day. If I do go into my home office in the evening, it's to do a voice-over or write an article for a client. Alas... Green Grandma isn't keeping up with things as I used to. For that, I am truly sorry. It's not that the blog isn't important to me anymore. Not at all.
I've been meaning to write this post for that past week and finally have the time to do it. If you've been following for long (as in years), you know I love to promote good products. Sometimes I do it as a sponsored post after I've received a product to review. Today, however, I just want to sing the praises of a product I have at home.
Because of my intense affection for soaking in hot baths, my feet are drying out like never before. Until last week, I seriously was considering having to let go of this favorite pastime. But as I was rummaging through my bathroom cupboard looking for something, I came across a bottle of Massage Serum by Babytimes. Hmmm, I thought, I wonder if this would help. I read the label and without hesitation, applied some serum to the bottom and top of my feet. I felt immediate relief, so I did it again the next morning before putting on my socks and shoes. I repeated this pattern for a few days, applying the serum at night after my bath and again in the morning before going to work.
One particularly warm night (we've been having crazy temps for February), I was stretched out across the couch and my husband started rubbing my bare feet.
"What did you do to your feet?" he asked.
"What do you mean?"
"They're so soft. They feel like a baby's skin."
Yes! I thought, because next to baths, I really, really love foot massages. But my feet have been too rough and Bill hasn't been eager to rub them.
I told him about the Massage Serum by Babytimes and he told me to keep using it. He knew how concerned I was about my feet and recognized this awesome solution.
Of course, I still was doing my apple cider vinegar soaks to soften my feet from time to time, but I just haven't been keeping up with them because of this new crazy schedule of mine. With the serum, I can accomplish the same thing in a few seconds twice a day. I'm in love.
Moral of the story? Don't neglect reaching for your baby's products when you have an issue of your own. The solution just might be in the nursery!
Wishing you soft feet and a partner who likes to rub them!
