Got a foot concern? Perhaps it’s calluses? Maybe you’ve got scaly skin or aching arches? Whatever the issue, we’ve got the foot tools to solve your problem! Here’s how to get soft, happy feet…
If your feet are mild – moderately dry, the best solution is a foot treatment, such as a softening foot bath and an overnight foot treatment. Start by half-filling your bath with warm water right before bed and adding a couple of tablespoons of olive oil and honey with half a cup of Epsom salts to soothe and soften skin. While your feet are in the tub, grab a foot brush and gently buff over scaly areas, working in circular motions.
If your feet are severely dry work over dry areas with a foot file, using a back and forth motion to work away dry skin before soaking for 15 minutes. After your soak, slather on a thick, nourishing foot cream like Burt’s Bees Coconut Foot Crème and cover in cotton socks before jumping into bed. The socks will promote maximum absorption of the emollient properties of the cream and you’ll wake up with baby soft feet!
Calluses are thick, hardened areas of skin that form over time as a result of pressure or friction and most of us have suffered from them at some stage or another. The best way to get rid of a foot callus is with a pumice stone. The sharp particles in the pumice stone are abrasive enough to break through the tough skin of calluses that won’t be budged by foot scrubs alone. Work over calluses with the pumice in gentle circular motions and finish with a moisturising foot cream to keep skin soft.
Tired, achy feet
The best cure for tired achy feet is a soothing foot treatment. Start by soaking in warm water with half a cup of Epsom salts for 15 minutes, then awaken your weary feet with a stimulating foot massage with a foot brush, working in circular motions all over the foot to increase circulation. Finish by slathering on a cooling foot gel to soothe aches and pains like Nutrimetics Soul Renewal Corsica Cooling Foot Crème.
