Caring for your face, hair and hands are for many people a natural part of their daily beauty routines, but a lot of people forget their feet! Therefore, I would like to share a few useful tips for foot care you can easily do at home!
Foot care should be a part of your daily routine
Just consider one time what you are actually putting your feet through? Your feet are the first thing that touches the ground every time you get up or take a step.
They carry all your weight and they do it every single day. Throughout your entire life! You lock them up in socks and shoes and maybe like me, torture them with heels that are not made for comfort for your feet.
Your feet go through a lot. Especially if you’re active and enjoy sports like football, running, cycling. It’s actually quite impressive what they can stand, hence why we need to pay attention to foot care!
I want my feet to last many years and I’d like to still be able to do all the above mentioned when I’m older. So a few years back I started paying more attention to foot care. Before that, my feet had become so dry and nasty to look at. Way too damaged for my age. Looked like I was ready for a nursing home…
Like many of you probably, I simply just forgot to take care of my feet. I was paying much more attention to skincare and my appearance. You can read about my other skincare routines here.
I saw the difference immediately after I started my daily foot care. They look much more healthy and never have any problems with them anymore. It may sound a bit much to care for them every day, but you more or less just have to wash them every day and put on some good greasy cream.
My daily routine for my feet
Don’t worry. It really doesn’t take much effort. The most important thing is to moisturize your feet each day with a good lotion. I’ve become quite happy with products from The Body Shop.
You can find some of their amazing products here. At the moment I only use their products for my feet.
I put on the cream “Peppermint Cooling Foot Lotion” both in the morning and in the evening before I go to bed. It is also very good to use just after a nice bath.
I also often have a lot of foot sweat, so I also use an antiperspirant for my feet and in the shoes. That really makes a difference! I also make sure not to use the same shoes every day and try to take my socks off as often as possible to let my feet breathe!
Once a week I also give my feet a long bath with salt and essential oils. That leaves your feet nice and soft! It’s important to keep on doing this – you have to care for them every day!
