Feets Don't Fail Me Now

Summer is ending, and this means many of us will be ditching our strappy sandals and flip flips for less-revealing footwear. But before you say adios, pamper your feet so they are ready for hibernation with our quick, easy and inexpensive Gossip Goddess regimen.

Step One:
Remove that sassy summer polish. If your nails are colored all summer long (and really, whose aren't?), now is the time to take a polish break and make sure your toenails are healthy. If you notice any discoloration or other things that don't look quite right, consult your dermatologist.

Step Two:
Choose a salt-based foot soak and give your tired dogs a rest

Step Three:
Scrub the dead skin on your feet with a pumice stone, and rinse under cool running water.

Step Four:
Using a clipper, trim your toenails straight across so they're about even with the top of your toes.

Step Five:
Lock in moisture with a cream-containing shea butter. If you can't fathom polish-free toes even though no-one but you will see them, the hottest fall hues are expected to include classic nude, navy blue, steel grey, burnt orange and teal.


Manicure Malfunction? No problem.

Coming soon to airports and malls near you are nail polish kiosks, compliments of L'Oréal's Essie. These colorful kiosks will feature 48 different shades, including six seasonal specials. Look for the first ones to pop up at Oakland International Airport and the JetBlue terminal at JFK in New York.

Reality Bites

The new E! plastic surgery reality show Botched has been picked up for another season. Yes, the stories featured on the hit show may be sensationalized (e.g., a man who spent upwards of a hundred grand to look like Justin Bieber!), but Botched does draw attention to the need for revision procedures such as revision rhinoplasty.

I got a little too much sun this summer, and I am worried about skin cancer. Is there anything I can do now?

While there is no substitute for protecting your skin from the sun's ultraviolet rays, laser resurfacing and some chemical peel formulations may help remove precancerous lesions. Talk to your dermatologist about the risks and your options.
