Clean and beautiful feet is a delight to the eyes. When our feet are healthy, we tend to show our friends as a way of increasing our self esteem. But when we have hard and dirty feet, we cover it always with socks and shoes so that people would not see our flaws.
Scaly feet harbour germs and diseases especially in between your toes leaving your feet with foul smell. Also, having hard skin under the sole of your feet can bring pain and discomfort. Hard skin breaks easily and can cause bleeding and wounds. No wonder spas offer people pedicure services to help them treat their feet problems . The disadvantage of spa and other pedicure shops is that they offer these services at a very exorbitant rate.
In order to show off amazing feet, you should follow a frequent care and maintenance routine. This can cost you a little bit of time, but keep in mind that it will translate to overall wellbeing, that you will notice even in your facial expressions.
In order to have perfect feet, like a model’s, with no hard skin, callouses, or cracked heels, you just have to have a little bit of time every week.
Follow these tips:
-You should do a weekly foot bath with sea salt for a half hour. It isn’t a big task: you can do it while you watch television or while painting your fingernails. This will make them look more relaxed and rested, especially if you standing or sitting down all day at work.
-Every fifteen days, do a hot water bath for a few minutes, immediately followed by a cold water bath. This combination will improve your feet’s circulation. If you add a few drops of lemon to the water, you will prevent them from smelling bad.
-Massage your feet every night before going to sleep with a moisturizing cream or essential oil. This will relax them and prevent callouses. Massage in circular movements and with a little bit of pressure.
-Walk barefoot, do ankle rotations, and walk on tiptoes around your house. In this way, you will strengthen your feet. You can even a roll a ball underneath them to massage and improve your sole’s circulation.
-After showering, dry your feet well between your toes so that fungus doesn’t form. If you sweat a lot, use talcum powder.
-Use cushioned insoles and don’t wear very tight shoes everyday. Wearing heels isn’t the best alternative either.
-Cut your nails horizontally to prevent them from becoming ingrown or deformed, weak, or growing normally. If you go to a beauty salon for a pedicure, make sure that the tools they use are of high quality and aren’t rusty because they can cause infections.
-Reflexology is one of your options if you like alternative medicine. It stimulates your body’s defenses and helps get rid of toxic substances. It consists of pressing certain points, which are connected to your nervous system, on the soles of your feet.
