We always see Victoria Beckham as the height of sophistication and glamour, and imagine her going to bed in a sexy camisole or perhaps some silk pyjamas, but we wouldn’t guess that she went to bed wearing socks and gloves. However, that is exactly what Victoria says she does, as this week she revealed that she likes to slather really thick foot lotion on her feet and cover with socks before bed. She also puts on hand cream and gloves at the same time. “David must think I’m a loony because I get into bed with gloves and socks on”.
It is not a loony thing to do at all, especially now winter is coming and skin is more sensitive to drying out. It is easy to forget about your feet over the winter but regular exfoliating and keeping your toenails in shape is vital for the health of your feet and makes you feel more attractive. Night time is the perfect opportunity to apply lots of moisturiser and let it soak in. Some of the best products around are, Bliss Softening Sock Salve, £18, Burt Bees Coconut Foot Cream, £11.50 and Neutrogena Foot Cream, £4.99, all of which are available from Boots.
