Don't let dry skin and fungus spoil your summer fun. If you plan to wear sandals this summer, start preparing your tootsies now.

Step 1: Inspect toenails
Inspect your toenails for discoloration, which may indicate a fungal infection caused by feet sweating in boots and thick socks over the winter.

Step 2: Limber up
Limber up and strengthen your feet with toe curls. Lie on the floor and exercise your toes 10 times on each foot. Sandals don't offer much support, so you'll have to strengthen your feet for the beating summer will give them.

Step 3: Get rid of cracked skin
Rid your feet of dry, cracked skin and calluses with a pumice stone in the shower. Apply a rich moisturizer regularly to soften your skin.

Treat yourself to a pedicure at your favorite shop.

Step 4: Soak and massage
Soak and massage your feet in the summertime, and use foot treatments to scrub away flaky skin.

Step 5: Use foot pads
Use over-the-counter moleskin or blister pads to fix any unsightly skin problems before putting on sandals for the summer.

After walking or hiking, baby your feet in lukewarm water and elevate them.

Step 6: Wear acrylic socks
Wear dry, clean acrylic socks to wick moisture away. Change your socks once a day and use antiperspirant on your feet. Consider wearing insoles, which can keep your feet smelling good.

Step 7: Remove ugly hair
Remove unwanted toe hair with an FDA-approved laser hair removal to eliminate any self-consciousness about your feet. Put on your summer sandals and confidently go for a stroll.
