The importance of good foot care

 

If you are familiar with the Latin saying “Mens Sana in Corpore Sano”, you must know the importance of looking after your body. Personal hygiene is crucial if you want to avoid infections, viruses, and even some serious health problems later on.

However, taking regular showers and baths is not enough to make your body look good. There are countless grooming products that can enhance your beauty and make your skin feel softer.

But this doesn’t mean you have to spend thousands of dollars on special lotions and potions that promise to make you look more appealing. On the contrary, according to recent studies, both men and women are attracted to a beautiful smile, kind eyes, and soft skin and feet.

And if you’re still not convinced on why you should invest more time in properly looking after your feet, perhaps these reasons will make you change up your mind.

 

Makes your skin softer

A soft and beautiful skin is the epitome of beauty by all standards, so a good foot scrub and a moisturizing body lotion will do wonders.

Establish a daily or weekly beauty routine that includes soaking your feet in warm water with essential oils or Epsom salt for relaxation. Let them stay for about 20 minutes before using a pumice stone to remove dead skin cells and calluses. After you carefully cleaned your feet and heels, apply a calming and deeply moisturizing cream.

 

Gets you rid of swollen feet

Many women deal with swollen feet on a regular basis. Uncomfortable shoes, wearing high heels on a regular basis or standing for long hours are the main reasons why feet get swollen. Water retention or pregnancy can also cause feet to swell and feel heavy.

So, if you want to prevent all these and ensure the beauty of your ankles, you definitely need to invest more in your foot care. As previously mentioned, Epsom salt and essential oils do wonders for tired and swollen feet.

You can also consider purchasing a regular foot spa to treat your legs and feet after a long day at work. A heated one will also help you get rid of muscle tension and improve your blood circulation.

There are some other ways through which you can enjoy beautiful legs all day long no matter how much of a heel fan you are. Water retention is the main cause of swollen feet so don’t forget to hydrate yourself accordingly.

 

Drink adequate amounts of water daily and cut on the salt as much as you can. Don’t forget that all foods already contain salt, so there is no need to add extra.
