Here are few foot care tips you can apply to improve your feet for the summer
days to come...
Get rid of that hard, dead skin on your feet at least once
a week. Begin by soaking your feet in warm water for 10 minutes to soften
the dirt and dead
skin. Once your feet are softened, use a pumice or foot file to rub away calluses
and dead skin to reveal smoother skin.
When you are done filing your feet, soak them in warm water
again for 10 minutes. Try adding essential oils to the foot soak, such as
or scented lavender
oil to moisturize your feet while you soak them.
Always dry your feet completely after you soak them or take a shower because
wet feet are a breeding ground for bacteria. Use a towel made from natural
materials and dry your feet carefully, including in between the toes.
Moisturizing your feet every day with a rich body or foot lotion is extremely
important because your feet have no oil glands on their soles. To really
make the moisturizer sink in, try slathering it on and them putting on
the socks to bed and you will wake up with incredibly soft, supple feet.
If you suffer from tired, swollen feet you can try soaking
them in cold water for 10 minutes. After the cold water soak, rest your feet
for a few minutes. You can accomplish this by laying in your bed and
feet up on the headrest. A really quick fix for swollen, tired feet
is to roll them over cold
cans from your refrigerator.
Finally, a great way to get your feet ready for the summer is to get
a professional pedicure. A pedicure is the ultimate pampering experience
for both men and
women. Consider adding a massage, which increases circulation and
feels just fabulous.
