SOLUTIONS :After showering apply a moisturizing product on your feet and then put on a pair of socks and slippers to protect your heels. Do minimal skin filing on heels and never use the callus blades.

Problem: Pimples on your BACK

Many of us experience acne breakouts on the back and combatting them can be difficult …especially if you live alone and don’t have anyone to apply the lotion.

Solution: Alpha Hydroxy Acid

What you’ll need: AHA beauty lotion found at health food and drug stores

How To: Apply an Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) lotion to gently exfoliate and soften the skin. AHA’s may bring more blemishes to the surface for a couple of weeks, but afterward, your skin will stay clear as you continue to apply the AHA regularly to prevent breakouts. If you must apply the product solo here’s a easy tip. Place a sock over a back brush, place the product on the sock and apply to your back.
