Tawana Jackson, Social Worker, On Why She Puts Listerine On Her Feet

Sometimes, just by looking at someone, you can tell that they have tons of beauty tricks up their sleeves. And such was the case when we spotted the beautiful Tawana Jackson in SoHo.

And it turns out we were right -- she had tons of advice to dispense. Jackson was well-versed on how to get rid of pimples (toothpaste), she knew the best affordable blush brand (e.l.f.) and she had a very peculiar way to get softer feet (mouthwash is involved).

"During the winter I don't get pedicures as often," the social worker told us. "I feel you can kind of save on that because your feet aren't being seen as much, so I'll do it at home. I soak my feet in a hot water and Listerine mix for 10-15 minutes and it softens your skin and gets rid of the rough patches -- I got the idea off of Pinterest." Clearly we need to start perusing Pinterest more. [Ed. note: Since Listerine contains alcohol, be sure not to put your feet in the mixture if you have any open wounds.]
