In the summer months when they are on show, we tend to think a little more about them. But during the winter they just seem to get covered up and ignored.
When a friend of mine needed ‘foot models’ for her reflexology exam, I agreed to help her.
Ever since that day, and coming home with the most wonderful feeling feet, I have tried to give my feet a little more consideration.
You can greatly improve the condition of your feet by carrying out a regular foot care routine:
- Check your toenails regularly and keep them trimmed.
- Rough skin is a common problem and this needs to be removed regularly with the use of a foot file or pumice stone.
- Submerge your feet in a relaxing foot soak and sit back for about 10 or 15 minutes — peppermint foot preparations are particularly refreshing for feet.
- Exfoliate your feet with a good foot scrub, rinse, dry gently and finally massage them with a cooling foot lotion — paying particular attention to toes and heels.
Feel the difference. No more dry, scaly or uncomfortable feet — just smooth, soft and supple. Go on, try it and see for yourself!
