Every summer feet across the country are evolving, right in their owners’ flippy floppies.

Just like creatures native to the desert and its sand dunes, exposed skin is hardening, drying and developing scary snake-like scales thanks to a gruelling season of backyard barbecues, water sports and beach days.

So, because hobbit feet don’t go well with your Essie pedicure, try a little hair of the dog that bit you — with Carlee Scanlon’s summer sea salt scrub.

It takes minutes to prepare and can be used on your entire sun-kissed (and dried-out) body to slough off the dead stuff and leave skin glowing.

Hello beach goddess, goodbye lizard lady!
