- Remove the masks from the pouch and wear them as if you are wearing your socks.
- It is recommended to wear a pair of normal socks outside of the masks, this will ensure that the masks stay in place and facilitate your movement.
- Wear the masks for 1-2 hours (minimum 30 minutes for sensitive skin). You may experience tingling or warming sensation, this indicates that the masks are working. Stop using if you experience uncomfortable burning sensation.

Having tried other foot peeling masks in the past, I wasn’t expecting anything vastly different from the rest. Once my feet were completely done with the peeling process, I was pleasantly surprised. My feet were much softer and smoother. The only complaint I have is how long I had to wait for the peeling to start and end. It took about a week and a half, whereas the other brands I’ve used before only took about a week. If you don’t mind the extended peeling process, then this is the brand for you.
During your foot soak, you may feel some warmth or a bit of tingling. Don’t be alarmed. Those sensations just mean that the product is working, that your skin is soaking up the solution that starts up the peeling process. If at any time you feel burning, immediately take the masks off.
Once you’re done soaking your feet, rinse them off with water, then wait the next few days for the peeling to begin. On average, peeling begins within the first seven days, but it can take up to 15 days before any signs of dead skin removal. You do have the option to use the second set of foot masks after the first week if you’d like to speed up things up.
When your feet do start peeling, RESIST THE URGE OF PEELING THE SKIN YOURSELF! As tempting as the videos make it, premature peeling can lead to bleeding and leave your skin vulnerable since it hasn’t developed enough to act as a protective layer against infections and such. The dead skin will peel off on its own when it’s ready. If you want to remove the parts that have already peeled, you can soak your feet at night in water and some vinegar, then gently exfoliate to get those peeled bits off. Make sure not to use any lotion or moisturizer on your feet while they’re peeling, since you want your feet dry enough in order for it to actually peel.
When all the peeling is done, voila! You should have feet as soft and supple as those of a baby. And if they aren’t as smooth as you were hoping they would be, you can restart the whole procedure in a month, or at least 20 days from when the peeling process is complete to achieve your desired results.
Do the directions seem more complicated than most foot masks out there in the market? Maybe a it, but the results are worth that extra bit of hassle. Just make sure when the peeling does begin that you do wear socks and closed toe shoes to avoid your feet from flaking off dead skin in public!
