“Hot girl summer” has come and gone. Now, cooler weather has ushered in knee-high socks and comfortable boots, but that doesn’t mean you need to ignore your foot beauty regimen. I found two Amazon buys that guarantee silky soft skin from heel to pinky toe.
Recently, I added a pair of heated microwaveable booties ($31) to my wardrobe. Apparently, microwaveable socks aren’t extra enough all on their own, so the company adds “12 natural herbs and other aromatic ingredients” to the material to give your feet a full luxury experience.
Slipping them on is like a hug for your feet. Like the first step into a freshly-drawn bath. Like dancing on laundry that just came out of the dryer. In fact, the only thing that can improve the experience of microwaved booties is slathering on your go-to lotion beforehand. I prefer Kiehl’s Honey Whipped Body Butter ($69), which smells like a coconut cake, while Well+Good’s beauty director likes Curél’s Fragrance Free Comforting Body Lotion ($9).
You may think this level of self-care is reserved for the home, but I’m here to tell you that this whole sock-lotion situation works with boots. If you ask me, hot feet winter is the new hot girl summer.

So… what’s the deal with compression socks? And if you’ve got blisters, it may not be because of your shoes.
