Tired of wearing your heels?

Breaking into your new ankle boots, stilettos and nude heels can be a pain -- but it's a pain worth tolerating for the sake of fashion.

Well, not anymore. We'll share with you our style secrets to rocking those five-inch heels -- or even higher -- without blisters and sores on our feet. We're copping the secrets of celebrity stylists and what they use when their celebs are set to walk the red carpet while breaking into their new heels.

Cannabis Foot Treatment

Before the "Stilleto Cream" became a buzz word, celebrities have already been using CBD oil to massage their feet before or after a night in heels.

Stars like Dakota Johnson, Jennifer Aniston and Olivia Wilde have been into CBD oil for anxiety relief, but other celebrities have discovered a new way to use cannabis-infused oil. One such celebrity is Mandy Moore who trusts her stylist with using CBD oil for her feet.

Even celeb-moms like Kristen Bell use CBD foot cream to help fix heel pain and avoid inflammation, sores and blisters. Melissa McCarty prefers an oil-based CBD to prepare for a long night wearing heels.

How to Use Cannabis for Heel Pain

You may consider using a cannabis-infused cream to slather on your feet from heel to toe.

Keep in mind that it will take some time for the feet to fully absorb the cream -- around 20 to 30 minutes. To use, simply massage a coin-sized amount of cream on each foot. Leave it to dry while you continue doing your hair and makeup.

When you're in a rush, you may want to try CBD foot spray. Be mindful that these formulations need to fully dry when applied to avoid staining or ruining your expensive heels.

Our Recommendations

A cannabis foot treatment we love is Mazz Hanna Smoky Quartz Infusion CBD Foot Spray. It was reportedly created by celebrity manicurist Mazz Hanna, who was looking for a way to solve a problem with her clients' feet slipping out of their shoes because they used CBD lotions.

The non-greasy foot spray is infused with 250mg of CBD. What's more is she added smoky quartz crystals into the formulation, as it is said to have healing properties.

Hanna's CBD foot spray is meant not only to protect your feet from heel pain but also to "transmute negative energies, so you can enjoy positive vibes all day and all night long."

If you have more time to hydrate your aching feet after a day in heels, try LORD JONES X TAMARA MELLON Foot Cream, which is great if you put socks on to lock in hydration.

For treating calluses from dry, cracked heels, try KHUS + KHUS which contains baobab oil and French beeswax.

More Tips to Prevent Heel Pain

There are a few more things you can do to avoid heel pain, even with your CBD foot treatment.

First, favor softer ground. As it turns out, the red carpet helps protect our heels from further torture. Standing on hard flooring puts a lot of pressure on the balls of your feet.

You may also try the good old insoles that provide shock absorption, or try wearing stockings to add a layer of protection for your feet. Wool stockings help prevent blisters and calluses and stop the growth of bacteria and fungus.

Lastly, don't forget your trusty band-aid, which will save you from hours of torture. That is, if you haven't given CBD foot treatment a try yet.
