Pamper your feet with proper beauty ritual
Feet are the direct warriors which fight with dirt, pollution, age-counting, infections, and high-heel pain on a regular basis — and so it is important to pamper your feet the way you do to rest of your body. After washing properly with a medicated soap, apply a foot cream that has skin-hydrating lubricants to keep your feet soft and free from cracks and dryness. Look for moisturisers with AHA or lactic acid. Try to keep your foot nails short so that there is minimal dirt in them and can be maintained easily. Cracked feet are also a sign of dehydration. Along with daily water intake, try to include more fruits and vegetables in your routine. Try to avoid or cut down coffee, tea and alcohol. Continuous habit of good scrubbing is a natural way to prevent common foot problems like cracked heels and tired feet.
Rough feet are never pretty and you certainly want your skin to feel as beautiful as the shoes you are stepping into. It doesn’t mean you have to sit at a parlour every week. Try pumice stone, bristle brush and exfoliating creams at home. Don’t have time to visit a spa or salon? You can prepare a foot mask for cracked and dry feet. Add two table spoons of powdered oatmeal, 1/2 table spoon honey, 1/2 tablespoon olive oil, make a thick paste and apply it. Leave it on for the next half-an-hour. Rinse properly and complete it with good massage with a nice moisturiser.
