Usually beauty regimes involve skin and hair care. Getting regular facials and hair treatments are what most women focus on, but when it comes to foot care, they are slightly easy-going. Getting a rare pedicure is enough indulgence for some, however there is a lot more to footcare than just pedicures.
Lets face it, looking pretty and wearing make up doesn’t mean anything with dry feet or cracked heels or unkempt nails (long toe nails is a pet peeve) which is why we give our feet all the love and pampering they deserve!
Here are some of our favorite tips and tricks.
- Soak your feet in lukewarm water with a pinch of salt for about ten minutes. This will soften your skin and make it smooth ready to remove the dead skin using a pumice stone, or Oriflame’s dead skin remover.
- Scrub your feet regularly with a foot scrub. Oriflame’s 2in1 foot scrub has anti bacterial properties that don’t let your feet get nail or skin fungi, which is common especially if you wear closed shoes!
- Massaging your skin with a rich foot skin cream every night is essential. Do it with a good soothing cream that takes care of the tiredness in feet. Hold your feet gently from either sides and press the upper part of your foot very softly while pushing your thumbs outwards.
- If you have dry skin and wash your feet regularly (especially if you do ablution 5 times a day), use a moisturizing cream twice a day to avoid cracked heels.
- Since we are on the go all the time we love using Oriflame’s anti-perspirant cream. With this we avoid sweaty feet, foot odour and skin and nail issues.
- In summers if you feel the skin on your feet has changed color and gotten a tan try rubbing half a lemon regularly on the skin to cut through the tan. Also if you wear flip flops be sure to use sun screen on your feet.
- Avoid wearing nail polish for long stretches of time, let your nails breath. If you use nail polish in access we suggest you get a breathable nail polish.
- For beautiful feet always try to keep your feet covered and avoid walking barefoot!
