If you want healthy and beautiful feet, there are several ways to go about it. To help you out, here are tips on how to get feet that you can be proud of:
Exfoliate at least once a week.
Many people exfoliate their faces, but you should know that you can also exfoliate your feet. Like with your face, exfoliating your feet helps you get rid of dry skin cells on the surface, which makes your skin look and feel smoother.
Exfoliating also gets rid of dry skin, which ensures that your moisturizer works better. For the best outcome, go for peppermint & sugar-exfoliating foot scrubs. They are not only highly effective but also highly affordable.
If your skin is dry, use sugar rather than a salt scrub. This is because salt will draw out dirt and toxins, but it can also dry out your skin, and you don’t want this.
Use a pumice stone
If you have used the above scrubs and feel they aren’t giving you the results you are after, you should try a pumice stone.
This volcanic stone has been proven to smoothen and exfoliate even the hardest feet.
Begin by soaking your feet in warm water for 10 to 15 minutes to soften the skin and make it easier to scrub.
You should then put warm water on the pumice stone and scrub the rough skin on your foot with the pumice stone by holding it against your foot and moving it around in small circles.
When moving the stone, be careful not to scrub too hard or too long, as this can irritate and hurt the skin.
Once you are done, rinse your feet with warm water to eliminate debris and dead skin cells.
You should use moisturizing foot cream or lotion to keep your feet smooth and soft.
Remember to rinse the pumice stone with warm water every time you use it and let it dry completely.
As much as the pumice stone is highly effective, first talk to a doctor before using it if you have diabetes, poor circulation, or any other medical condition that affects your feet.
Also, you shouldn’t use a pumice stone on cuts or sores that are still open, as this can cause irritation and lead to an infection.
Moisturize your feet
You need to moisturize your feet for them to look healthy and beautiful.
For the best look, apply the moisturizing cream or oil right after you leave the shower to keep your feet from losing moisture. For even better results, reapply the moisturizer again right before bed.
The skin on the heel is thicker than the body’s other parts, making it harder for the cream and oils to get in and lock in moisture. In such a case, you should apply more cream or oil here than the other parts of the feet.
While you can use the moisturizer you apply on your face on your feet, you will get better results if you choose a cream or lotion made just for your feet.
These creams are often thicker and more moisturizing than regular body lotions. To be sure that you will get ideal results, look for those with ingredients known to be highly moisturizing. These include: urea, glycerin, or shea butter.
If your feet are excessively dry or cracked, try a more intensive treatment, like a foot mask or a healing ointment.
Many people forget to put SPF on their feet, which is a big mistake. This is because the skin on your feet needs to be protected. So are the nails, which are just as fragile as your skin.
The sunscreen protects the nail folds that keep moisture in and protect new nail growth as it grows from the base.
When you don’t protect your feet, sun, wind, and sand can dry out your cuticles and nail folds, making it hard for your nails to grow.
For the best outcome with sunscreen, make sure your feet are clean and dry. This is because sunscreen won’t work as well if your feet are dirty or have sweat on them.
You should always choose the right sunscreen. A good rule of thumb is to choose one with an SPF of at least 30 that covers a wide range of wavelengths. If you plan to be active or swim, look for a formula that won’t get wet.
You should always be generous with your application. Squeeze a lot of sunscreen onto your hand and spread it evenly over your feet. Put it on the tops, bottoms, and spaces between your toes.
While at it, don’t forget your ankles, as they get sunburned too.
