How to Take Care of Your Feet

Tips to Feet Care

Our feet tend to be one of the areas that less we take care of our body, so they end up getting quite dry and with hardness. With the arrival of good weather, nothing more beautiful that show with flirty sandals or the convenience of flip flops.

A healthy feets predispose you to face life more positively and with stronger and more secure, but if there are corns and calluses, our appearance will decay.

Habits to take care of the feet
To take care of the feet it is advisable to walk barefoot in safe places, on the grass, the sand, the carpets, etc. It is a very healthy exercise for them; this will activate the circulation and help it to transpire freely, resting better by not having anything that oppresses them.

When your feet are very tired and sore, soak them for a few minutes in warm water, and if you want, you can add a few drops of lavender to the water to feel a relaxing effect. And if you have someone who does, not there are best that a massage from time to time.

Always use a moisturizing cream, applying it with gentle massages, especially in the heel area, to keep it hydrated and soft, since this sector is very conducive to the appearance of hardness.

It is also useful to cover the feet with cotton socks for a few hours, and limit the use of shoes with the heel at the air so that it does not dry out.

Cure dry heels: If you have dry heels, you can make them look softer and more beautiful. Immerse them in hot water for about 20 minutes, dry them and rub with a pumice stone. Then, use Vaseline, letting the skin absorb it, before putting on your shoes.

Carry out this task, 2 or 3 times a week, until achieving good results and being able to maintain them.

Rest for feet with calluses: If you have feet with calluses, protect the affected area with a template when you go to a party, and when you return, put your feet in soaking in salted water. But this home remedy is not a definitive solution, since the best thing for calluses is to go to the podiatrist so that he eliminates it definitively.
