Thanks to Baby Foot Original Exfoliation Foot Peel growing numbers of people are putting their best feet forward on the Internet via ‘foot selfies’ along with praise about the product’s “gross, yet amazing” results.
With more than 11, 300 ratings of which 60% are of the five-star ilk, Baby Foot is definitely a fan favorite. The main reason for their popularity? They work and they work well, like really, really well.
Here’s the deal: After washing your feet thoroughly, (warning: taking short cuts may affect the results, according to many online reviewers), you place your feet –even if they are of the “horrible, dry, cracked desert floor” variety in two plastic booties

If your ABCs of footwear are Alaia, Choo, and Blahnik, you need to have a great podiatrist on speed dial. An addiction to high heels can lead to bunions, hammertoes, corns and various other issues that can cause agonizing pain. New York City’s Dr. Krista Archer with a discreet little clinic on Fifth Avenue is my “sole” sister.
More than just a go-to doctor for foot pain, nasty calluses and corns, a top-notch podiatrist should take a holistic approach to your feet’s overall wellness and appearance. Dr. Archer is also a podiatric surgeon who prides herself on promoting a healthy lifestyle that takes your feet into account, as well as her meticulous medical pedicures and treatments.
When my daughter Eden Lipke told me about these miracle foot peels from Korea that are all over Insta and Pinterest, I scoffed of course. Then she picked up two Kocostar Foot Therapy kits at Urban Outfitters for $8 bucks and we decided to give it a try.
This little cure for calluses comes in a mint green packet and is like a sheet mask for your feet. Open the packet to find a white plastic bag filled with a gooey clear gel. You open the bag and stick your tootsies in so the gel covers your whole foot from heel to toes and tape it in place. It is a makeshift occlusive dressing to cover the peel so it penetrates well. You need to put a sock over each foot to keep the bootie from falling off
If you are on Facebook (and with billions of users and counting, really who isn’t?) you have likely seen the plethora of foot selfies or “f”elfies. Images of perfectly polished toenails and sun kissed skin with sparkling aqua marine water and white sand in the background can be particularly obnoxious during winter months when you are trapped in a polar vortex, but summer is almost here, which means its your turn to put your best feet forward so your whole social network can like them.
But “it’s hard to maintain feet over the winter, so you may have your work cut out for you,” says Krista Archer, DPM, a New York City-based podiatrist.
