If foot care conjures up images of luxury pedicures and other beauty treatments that might feel a bit too unrealistic for you, then we are here to set the record straight. Looking after your feet, in fact, should be part of your daily body care regime, and it doesn’t need to involve can heading to an expensive salon every week.
Foot care involves practices such as hygiene, cleanliness, and exfoliation of your feet – all things that you can do from the comfort of your home. Maintaining healthy feet is vital if you want to enjoy better overall health.
With regular foot care, you can prevent or minimize the occurrence of certain problems, including bunions, calluses, corns, and ingrown toenails, all of which can cause difficulty walking. Taking care of your feet also just feels good — they quite literally carry you everywhere, why not give them the attention they truly deserve?
How to Take Care of Your Feet
Taking care of your feet at home is easier than you think.
To begin with, wash them regularly with warm, soapy water, and make sure that you clean the entire foot surface thoroughly, as well as in between the toes.
Then, once a week, proceed with deep exfoliation. Usually, this is a two-part process involving, on the one hand, applying a foot scrub and, on the other, finishing off with a foot file. You can use either a manual or an electric file, depending on your personal needs and preferences.
Lastly, take some time to trim your toenails straight, following the natural curve at the end of each toe. It’s important that you try not to cut them down the sides: this can cause problems such as ingrown toenails.
Once all of this is done, you can finally apply some rich moisturizer to your feet. For baby-soft feet, we recommend applying your foot cream just before going to bed and slipping on a pair of organic cotton socks. In the morning, your feet will look and feel pampered, healthy, and soft.
