I Tried A Chemical Foot Peel Because I Needed A Pedicure And Didn’t Want To Risk My Nail Technician’s Health

Currently, we’re all dealing with all kinds of mini-crisis that are, in the glaring grand scheme of the Coronavirus pandemic, of little consequence.

And yet, still hard to deal with.

As we all attempt to stay strong and comply with stay-at-home orders we’re also being forced to deal with our ever-evolving feelings related to not having access to beauty and grooming resources. That’s right, from no hair cuts to no bikini waxes to no pedicures… we’re all going a little loca. Fortunately, while they might not be as great as the salon treatment, we do have access to a few things that can help us keep up with our beauty routines. And I’ve been experimenting with them and testing them out so that you don’t have to!

This week, determined to get as close to the salon pedicure experience as possible, I decided to do a foot peel.

Because as much as I love my pumice stone to keep my heels smooth, they can only do so much work. Also, pictures of the results of at-home foot peels look super gross and satisfying in the pimple-popping videos sort of way.

Now, I will spare myself the humiliation of sharing pictures of my feet during the peeling process, but I will say this: If your concepts of entertainment are waning during this time, here’s where the party is at.

I mean, just LOOK at this.

According to the directions, you should experience peeling within four to seven days.

You’ll kick things off with your foot peel by applying the actual peel, I used Baby Foot, and following the attached directions. To ensure the most effective peel, be sure to do the following:

Leave the peel on for as long as possible.

The instructions on the back of the peel say to keep the booties on for a solid 30 minutes. But according to reviews that I found, many said that they found the peel was more effective when they tacked on an extra 30 minutes.

Soak your feet in hot water for as long as possible.

As per the instructions, be sure to soak your feet in water before you put on the peel. Reviewers also said t soak your feet in water during the next few days to get the peel to really work. Because I don’t have all day to soak in the bath, I popped up the drain while I was doing my nightly shower and let my feet soak in the tub while I washed.

Pick away.

Yep, it’s the advice your dermatologist never gives to you and all the validation you will need in the next few weeks as your skin begins to peel! You definitely want to avoid peeling skin that isn’t ready to come off (I have a small nick on the bottom of my toe now because I got a bit too excited) but feel free to pick off all of the dead skin that will flap off your feet if you don’t.

And that’s all chicas!

Grooming habits should be a matter of personal choice, but thanks to generations of the patriarchy telling women how they should look, what they should wear, and how they should take care of their bodies, that isn’t always the case. Thankfully, more and more brave women are embracing their natural beauty and that includes their own body hair.

Lourdes Leon showing off her natural arm pit hair is the normalization of body hair we all need.

A post shared by Madonna (@madonna)

Whether it’s on the red carpet or in a photo with her mom, Madonna, Lourdes Leon has a relationship with her body hair we can all admire. For instance, he two posed for a rare selfie on April 10, and Leon’s natural look moved us another step closer to normalizing visible body hair.

The sweet image is captioned: “Like Pieces of your Heart Walking around outside of you #lola.”

‘Lola’ is the nickname of Madonna’s eldest child, whom she shares with Cuban personal trainer-actor Carlos Leon.

The fashion icon’s post has received more than 440,000 ‘likes’ with many fans praising her daughter’s decision to embrace her natural body hair – with comments including “two beautiful, strong women” and “beautiful mother with her gorgeous daughter.”

Leon has never been shy about embracing her natural beauty.

Her mother has pushed beauty boundaries for decades, so it makes sense the 24-year-old model would choose to do the same. In November 2018, Lourdes generated headlines when she showed off her unshaved armpits and legs on the red carpet at the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Gala, just weeks after she turned heads for the same reason on the catwalk at New York Fashion Week.

Earlier this year, in February, she also showed off a glimpse of armpit hair in a new fashion campaign for Marc Jacobs. 

It seems that Lourdes may even have been inspired by her famous mom when it comes to ditching the razor. Speaking to Harper’s Bazaar in 2010, the singer said: “Going to high school, I saw how popular girls had to behave to get the boys. I knew I couldn’t fit into that.

“So I decided to do the opposite. I refused to wear makeup, to have a hairstyle. I refused to shave. I had hairy armpits.”

Kid Cudi Wore A Dress To Pay Tribute To Kurt Cobain During SNL Appearance

SNL

There’s no doubt that SNL has been the stage of some pretty groundbreaking performances and fashion moments. This past weekend was no different. While appearing as the late-night show’s musical guest the 37-year-old rapper of Mexican-American descent wore outfits a la late Nirvana rocker, Kurt Cobain.

Kid Cudi’s made a pretty big retro fashion statement for his Saturday Night Live musical performances this weekend.

For his first performance, which featured his song “Tequila Shots,” Cudi wore a t-shirt featuring the image of a late SNL cast member Chris Farley. Farley died in 1997 at age 33 from an overdose of cocaine and morphine. Over the shirt, Cudi wore a green cardigan, which many Twitter users were quick to note resembled one Kurt Cobain wore.

Cobain died by suicide in 1994.

During his performance of “Sad People,” Kid Cudi changed into a floral dress, which he confirmed in a tweet was in honor of Cobain.

Cudi’s took place on the same week of the anniversary of Cobain’s death, which occured on April 5.

“Virgil [Abloh] designed the dress for me,” Kid Cudi explained about the dress. “I told him I wanted to show love to Kurt w a floral print sundress and this man-made a masterpiece.”

Cudi also shared that he intends to collaborate with Abloh on his fashion label Off-White. The dress will be included.
