Get Baby Soft Skin With This Mask For Your Feet | Clozette


We’ve all fallen guilty to not giving our feet the attention they deserve. They carry us — literally — everywhere we need to go. Which means they also get tired, calloused and beaten up from all the (leg) work (pun intended). The skin on our feet is also naturally dry. And since we use our feet a lot and sometimes just can’t resist a good pair of heels, we end up getting cracked heels. If you’re a stockings wearer, this means the constant rubbing with cracked heels can wear your pairs out faster. But even if you don’t wear stockings often, it’s no secret that cracked heels can be uncomfortable (not to mention annoying). So it’s important to refresh your feet by removing dead, dry skin and reveal its natural softness. How? Meet Baby Foot.




We’ve all coveted skin that’s as smooth as a baby’s. But did you know that you can achieve it not just for your face but also your feet? Baby Foot is a peeling mask that exfoliates and removes the dry, cracked skin on the feet — this reveals smooth, renewed skin!



It’s made with natural ingredients — 17 to be exact — so your skin peels thoroughly but gently. Aside from exfoliating, these ingredients also deliver nourishing benefits. You’ll feel at ease with Horsetail Herb, Watercress, Sage, Clematis, Apple, Meadowsweet, Burdock Root, Orange, Tea Plant, Chameleon, Bladderwrack, Chamomile, Lemon, Soapwort, Ivy, Camel Grass and Grapefruit as the stars of this product.




Aside from giving you soft skin, it also helps deal with foot odour by removing dead skin that’s a thriving ground for bacteria. The fun part? It’s easy to use — no need for scrubbing or scraping, and you don’t need to do it often. Do it twice a year, and you’re good. If your cracked heels are more serious, though, it’s safe to bump up the use at once every two months. Soak your feet in warm water first. Then, simply slip your feet into the gel packs and leave them on for 30 minutes before rinsing the product off. Within three to five days, your feet’s skin will peel off to reveal something softer and smoother — just like a baby’s.


Baby Foot is available on Tokyoninki and at all SaSa and Watsons stores in Malaysia.

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t arrive at hydration city by hopping on board the water train. Depending on what your current skin condition is, you need to make pitstops and change gears to arrive at your desired destination — that is hydration inside-out.


Before you dismiss it as laborious, though, here’s proof that it’s actually easy. You just need to make a few tweaks in your routine and trusty aqua-rich, moisture-giving products like the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel​ and ​Neutrogena Hydro Boost Capsule In Serum​. To prove it, we had three members of #TeamClozette — Jordianne, Dhivya, and Vicky — try a 7-day challenge that will give your skin the surge of hydration it needs.

Use a humidifier


More often than not, we find ourselves cooped up in airconditioned spaces — whether it’s for work or leisure. While the cold can be comfortable, especially when you live somewhere so hot, it can also be too drying to the skin. The easiest way to remedy this is by using a humidifier.


Hydration tip: Use a Humidifier along with a good moisturiser

At night, before going to bed, make sure you put on a hydrating serum like the Neutrogena Hydro Boost Capsule in Serum, which instantly quenches dry skin*. It also helps repair the skin’s moisture barrier and protects the skin from getting dry. The capsules found inside the serum release antioxidants that help fortify the skin barrier and protect against recurring dryness. After that, turn on your humidifier and sleep in peace — and hydration.

“Aside from getting cold and cough because of the airconditioning, I noticed my skin also becomes incredibly dry. So using a humidifier was a welcome change for me,” Jordianne says of the experience. “After doing it for seven days, along with using the Hydro Boost Capsule in Serum, I noticed I don’t have dry patches when I wake up anymore. There’s also a glow to my skin.”

Quit coffee and switch to tea


Some of us can’t function well without coffee as fuel. But did you know that drinking coffee too much can affect how your skin produces collagen? And that means dehydrated skin and more chances of getting wrinkles. So instead of gulping cups of coffee, go for relaxing, antioxidant-rich tea instead.


Quit coffee and drink tea

Vicky tried it by slowly eliminating the coffee in her routine, although she’s a heavy coffee drinker. “It was pretty magical that after five days on the caffeine-free challenge, my skin became more radiant in the morning and definitely more plump and smooth,” she says. “I actually don't mind extending this hydration challenge and continue using the Hydro Boost Water Gel.”

The hyaluronic-packed Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel is great for a surge of hydration. It’s an oil-free moisturiser that helps leave the skin more supple and smooth. “It really hydrates my skin instantly, and I noticed that my makeup has become more long-lasting after continuously putting the moisturiser on before I put on face colour,” adds Vicky.

Eat your water


There are a lot of excuses we can make for not being able to drink water. So the easiest way to still do it without having to lug a bottle around is to eat your water. How? Make sure you incorporate water-rich foods into your diet such as watermelon and celery.

"Undergoing the challenge was hard especially because the food around the office is unhealthy,” Dhivya said. “But I tried to make a conscious effort to eat and drink more water-rich foods.”


Boost your hydration with Neutrogena

Amp it up by treating your skin to a vitamin-rich hydrating serum like the Hydro Boost Capsule In Serum, which is packed with vitamins E and B3. “Upon application, you just feel moisturised,” Dhivya says. “However, after a while, I notice that I look like I have highlighter on. It’s like a liquid highlighter but with lots of skin-caring benefits. Meanwhile, the Hydro Boost Water Gel is already a favourite because it’s so lightweight and gets absorbed quickly. After doing the challenge for seven days, along with applying the Capsule in Serum, I noticed that my skin texture has improved. My skin doesn’t feel as dry."

The first half of the year has gone, but it isn’t too late to work on our mid-year resolutions. Every day is another chance to learn. Because of that, this month, we’re all eyeing stuff that can help us get through the day.

Top fashion and beauty picks this month include these Chloe C bags

The Chloe C bag, price unavailable


“Over time I've come to realise that investing in pieces that will last you a long time is better than acquiring trendy pieces on a whim. While I've dismissed the idea of buying designer bags before, I'm slowly warming up to it now. When you think of the cost per wear, it surely seems more practical. My eyes are on the Small Chloe C bag. The ones in the fall/winter 2019 collection come in hues that are hard to resist.“

Grit: The Power of Passion & Perseverance by Angela Lee Duckworth, price unavailable


“As someone who's about to reach life's first quarter mark in less than a year, my perception of things like 'success', 'fulfilment', and 'happiness' has become tricky. So I figured that maybe I can pick up some points from Angela Lee Duckworth's new book to give me a new and more positive outlook. Elaborating the ideas on her Ted Talk on the power of grit and how it empowers a person to strive for long-time goals, I believe this read will serve as a great inspiration and motivation to combat my impending quarter-life questions and dilemmas.”

Orange-striped crop top and midi skirt

Kate Spade New York Summer 2019 RTW Stripe Crop Top and Midi Skirt, prices unavailable


"You know the quote that goes, 'Never underestimate the power of a good outfit on a bad day?' I totally agree with that. It's hard not to get sloppy in terms of how you dress when things get too hectic. But I would say that along with maintaining a proper skincare routine and exercise regimen, putting effort into your outfit will make you feel better, more confident and in control of your life. I've always loved dainty pieces with a splash of colour, and I haven't shopped for new clothes for quite some time so I'm eyeing these two cheerful pieces from the Kate Spade NY Summer 2019. I can wear them together or mix and match them with other pieces from my wardrobe depending on my mood."

Shu Uemura Nobara Collection Pressed Eyeshadow

“I’ve never been really good at applying eye makeup because I have hooded lids and, therefore, do not have much space to put colours on. Usually, when I do a full-face makeup look, I waste half an hour trying to perfect my lids. That’s why my goal for this month is to be better at my eyeshadow game. For that, I’m looking for an eyeshadow I can practice with daily. I’m already eyeing Shu Uemura’s Pressed Eye Shadow from their recently launched Nobara collection because it seems versatile and can be used day or night. Their brick rose-tinged shades would add a pretty warm yet natural glaze to my eyes — perfect for a sublime look for casual affairs.”

Facial cleansing device FOREO LUNA 3 in blue, pink and lavender

FOREO LUNA 3 Facial Cleansing & Firming 2-in-1 Device, SGD299


“As a fan of Swedish beauty tech brand FOREO, I was ecstatic when I heard that they will be launching the highly anticipated LUNA 3. What's cool is that FOREO now has an app which allows you to personalise your skincare, including the type of facial massage you wish! How convenient that the FOREO only takes a minute to remove all dirt and grime that causes breakouts after a long workday. My best takeaway is that this device removes your makeup while cleansing and firming your face, saving the hassle of using multiple products.”

I can rely on it to monitor my daily sleeping patterns, which would help me to adjust my sleep cycle to get quality rest. This little device will help me understand my body in ways I’ve never imagined."
