How Often Should You Use a Foot Peel?

At-home foot peels have become a popular way to achieve soft, smooth feet in the comfort of your own home.

With Baby Foot™ Original Exfoliation Foot Peel, all you have to do is soak your feet in the plastic booties for one hour and wait for the dead skin slough away naturally. Foot peels also help soften and reduce the appearance of calluses, rough patches, and thickened skin, all of which can age the appearance of your feet prematurely. 

One of the most common questions people ask is how often to use a foot peel. The answer can vary from person to person. Considerations include how long you’ve been using foot peels and how long your smooth skin lasts before dead cells begin to build up again. 

Allow a Few Days for Skin to Peel

For starters, you want to allow enough time after your initial treatment for the peeling process to take place.

Don’t expect your feet to instantly feel smooth after the first time you use Baby Foot™. Most people can expect the dead skin to begin flaking off on its own within 5 to 7 days. Avoid excessive scrubbing, and don’t use razors or other sharp objects. Allowing the peeling process to progress naturally gives you better results and reduces the risk of irritation. 

When to Repeat if You Still Have Dead Skin

If you’ve never used a foot peel before, you may notice that some dead skin remains after your first treatment. 

The good news is you can safely repeat the treatment to gradually achieve smoother skin over time. We recommend waiting at least two weeks after one application before you do the next. Always use a brand new pair of booties for each treatment and use immediately after opening.

Maintaining Smooth Feet Over Time

The more times you use Baby Foot™, the better your skin will feel and the less often you’ll need to use it. Occasional maintenance treatments help to keep your skin looking and feeling its best.

The exact interval between treatments will vary from person to person. For most people, we recommend every two months to maintain smooth feet. Some will find that every three to four months is sufficient. A good rule of thumb is whenever you notice dead skin starting to build up and your feet begin to feel rough. 

What Happens if You Use a Foot Peel Too Often?

Using a foot peel too often, such as every day or even once a week, may cause irritation and redness. It may also strip away moisture and dry out your skin. Most people shouldn’t use a foot peel more than every two to four weeks

Bonus Tip: Peel During Winter

Because Baby Foot™ causes your skin to peel off gradually over about a week, it’s a good idea to wear clean, comfortable socks after treatment. This keeps your feet clean and comfortable and prevents dead skin cells from accumulating on your floor and other surfaces.

The cold weather months of fall and winter are a great time to try a foot peel for the first time. Wearing sandals or going barefoot during the summer may interfere with the peeling process for less-than-ideal results.
