Summertime means wearing less and baring more and that includes our feet. Summer weather and activities can be just as harsh on our skin as the colder months. Taking regular care of the feet, even between regular pedicures, will ensure your feet are ready to bare it all in your favorite sandals or at the beach.
For an easy and effective routine, try making a foot bath of warm water and add 1/4 teaspoon of Jojoba oil along with a cup of Himalayan fine grain pink salt. Soak your feet for about 10-15 minutes. This will help soften the skin and the “mixture” also serves as a great foot scrub. Gently massage your feet with the mixture using your hands or a washcloth, whichever is preferred. Give a good scrub to especially rough areas, like the heels and areas of the toes that withstand the most pressure and friction. After completely patting the feet dry, apply a liberal amount of a high-quality, potent moisturizing product like shea butter, aloe butter, or cocoa butter. Put on a pair of socks to help keep the moisture in. Ideally, you’d want to do this a few times a week, preferably right before bedtime. Not only will you have healthier, more gorgeous feet but it’s a great way to unwind at the end of the day!
Too busy for lengthy at-home pampering? For weeks that you are short on time, a very effective alternative is Foot Cream with Cucumber Extract. This luxurious foot balm not only moisturizes, nourishes, and protects but also eliminates dead skin as well. Fortified with Vitamins E and C, this is a great item to have on hand and especially convenient when traveling.
