WTF are 'foot masks'—and are they worth it?

Curated via Twitter from USA TODAY Tech’s twitter account….

Jart+ Dermask Foot Smoothing Mask, the priciest mask on the list, which has a foil exterior instead of plastic to hold in body heat while moisturizing the feet with serum.

You may be familiar with foot peels, which are a breed of foot mask that results in all of the dead skin peeling off of your feet over a few hours or days.

The foot masks I looked at, however, are a different thing entirely, and are intended specifically to moisturize the skin of the feet.

Aveeno Repairing CICA Moisturizing Foot Mask with Oat, which claims to repair extra dry skin with oatmeal and shea butter. 3.

Sephora Collection Foot Mask, which contains lavender extract and menthol to refresh the feet. 2.

In my experience, the masks worked exactly as intended, leaving my skin feeling softer, especially after I took my feet out of the “socks” and massaged leftover product in.

Earth Therapeutics Tea Tree Oil Moisturizing Foot Mask, which uses tea tree oil and shea butter to soften calluses. 4. Dr.

And a pedicurist may have also tried to upsell you on a clay- or mud-based foot mask, which are basically the same thing (or same concept) as the face version beloved at middle-school slumber parties.

These single-use products consist of a serum-covered fabric (like a regular sheet mask), with a plastic exterior to keep your foot and the serum contained while you treat your skin.

They don’t claim to exfoliate or peel dead skin off the way that foot peels or clay masks do.

The masks I tested claim to hydrate dry skin and soften calluses for smoother feet.

These masks are meant to be a one-time product, so it’s best not to reuse them despite the excess serum you’ll see when you pull your feet out.
