Do you like indulging yourself every once in a while? If you love pampering, then you probably know how important it is to give your feet the spotlight every once in a while. Since we use our feet during the majority of our days, it is no wonder that they are the most stressed part of our bodies. This is why it is important for us to pamper and keep them healthy to keep them in a good condition. And no, you do not need to visit a spa just to give this body part their much deserved de-stressing. Believe it or not, you can pamper yourself right in the four walls of your home.
Keeping your feet healthy and clean should be one of your daily priorities. Wash them every night before going to bed and exfoliate them using a good foot cream every two weeks. Just like other body parts, the feet also accumulate dead skin which can lead to dry skin and then lead to cracked heels. You should also include moisturizing your feet with a good foot cream as part of your daily routine. A moisturizing foot cream will not only prevent you from having dry skin but will also keep your feet looking refreshed. The best moisturizing foot cream products are those with Shea butter in them because it helps boost the skin's moisture production.
You should also splurge yourself into getting a pedicure twice a month. Even though painting your toes is not really necessary, having a pedicure can keep your feet free from rough skin and softer. Just like foot spas, you can do this on your own. Just simply soak your feet in warm water for a couple of minutes to soften the cuticles and to remove some of the dry skin. Afterwards, soften the hardened and rough ages of your cuticles by applying cuticle oil in them. You should use an orangewood stick to push back the cuticles back to smoothen the surface of your nails.
Afterwards, it is time to cut your nails. The last thing you need is to have ugly chipped nails. When cutting your toenails, do not cut them in an oval shape but simply clip them straight across. This way, you will have less possibilities of developing ingrown. Once finished, file your nails and apply a thin layer of colorless polish for additional flair. If you want, you can even paint them with a lovely color to glam up your look.
