Foot masks are becoming more and more popular in the beauty world, likely due to their perceived ability to help detox the body, draw out impurities, quicken cell turnover, and seriously exfoliate and moisturize tough foot skin.
A foot mask is a thick beauty product meant to be slathered on the feet. As a foot mask dries, it is said to help detox the body, draw impurities from the skin, boost circulation and cell turnover, trap and eliminate foot odor, and exfoliate, smooth and moisturize the foot skin. Some foot masks, like Baby Foot, promote skin peeling that leaves only fresh, new skin behind.
A foot mask is different from foot lotion in that it is generally applied and then rinsed from the feet after a period of about three to five minutes. It is also not used daily, but rather weekly as part of a normal pedicure routine.
