Most times, we end up neglecting our feet. They’re the last things that we bear in our mind when it comes to body care. Don’t you realized, your feet are the important part of your body and need proper care and attention. We need them to get around on, to keep us upright, and to look good in sandals. However, your feet are pretty darn important as they not only give you a reason to walk but also to buy shoes. But we do often abuse them with all the wear and tear. Don’t you know your feet should be respected too! So here a few tips for pampering your feet:
- Trim your nails
Healthy feet need healthy toenails. Broken and ingrown toenails aren’t just unsightly, but they’re also painful. Even if they’re often covered, don’t neglect them because long nails can cause infections and short nails can cause ingrown toenails. To prevent these ailments, simply use a nail clipper to trim your nails. Just be sure not to make the nail too short, as this can also cause discomfort. Moreover, to keep your nails strong and healthy, repeat the process every two to three weeks.
- Soak your feet
In the shower your feet don’t often get the attention so why not give yourself a little foot bath. Soak them in the warm water with a little liquid soap and start to wash your feet. It will leave you feeling pampered and your feet will look fantastic.
- Wear the right shoes
Buying the right shoes is an investment in foot health. This is why you should wear shoes that fit your feet properly. Avoid wearing high heels every day. Moreover, the right footwear can help keep your feet healthy instead of make your physical activity easier and it will help your body safe from injury. You’ll be more comfortable being active if you choose a shoe that fits you well and suits your activity type.
- Moisturize and exfoliate your feet
Most of us don’t exfoliate and moisturize our feet enough. These are essential steps to getting smooth, soft skin. And for long-lasting results, you need to repeat the process regularly. Then, exfoliate with a scrub specifically designed for this area of your body and massage it on your damp feet. Once your foot is massaged, rinsed and thoroughly dried, apply a moisturizing cream to nourish your skin and this will make your feet super healthy.
