On average, each individual walks more or less four miles per day. Considering our feet are in constant use, a little time taken to tend to your feet can help to keep them on top form all year round.
Our feet do a lot for us and there are a few tips to bear in mind to take extra special care of them (and a handful of luxury products designed especially). A few simple steps could just make all the difference.
A quick exfoliation each day in the shower will remove the rough skin and make your feet soft and smooth.
When you’re in the shower or bath, a quick wash with your choice shower gel keeps germs and bacteria in check and leaves your feet smelling good too. When you have time for it, the best treat for your feet is a nice long soak in warm soapy water. Enjoying a foot soak can help to relieve tiredness and calms the skin.
Make sure you take the time to dry your feet after a bath or shower because failing to do so can encourage bacterial growth or fungal infection.
Tired feet? A gentle massage helps to regulate circulation and eliminates tensions. Why not try a massage bar, the natural oils and butters will help your hands too! Glide the bar smoothly over the skin, see how it conditions the feet just as well as anywhere else? Keeping them supple and moisturised is important.
When we think of “putting our feet up” we often assume it means to take a break. However, taken literally, it’s not something we do not do enough. Next time you sit down with a cuppa, make sure you elevate your feet and take the weight off them.
