Foot care tips

             

While most of us are very particular about taking care of our facial skin, hair, and even hands; foot care is often relegated to the last spot on our list of body care priorities. Come to think of it, we apply moisturizers and cold creams on our facial skin several times a day, but we tend to ignore our feet for days at a stretch. But foot is where you stand and foot is the place where handle the weight of yours.  Ignoring the foot can have painful consequences, including bacterial or fungal infections, corns, cracked skin. Especially when the skin becomes chapped and dry all over the body, it becomes even more important to pamper your foot once in a while.


Wash your feet often

Foot skin is most susceptible to bacterial and fungal infections since it is cloaked in socks and shoes for a major part of the day, or exposed to dust and grime. The skin between the toes is a perfect place for bacterial and fungal infections to flourish if it is not washed and cleansed properly. It is therefore very important to soap and wash your feet once every day to ensure the lock in dirt and sweat is cleansed off.

Cut toenails carefully

Trim your toenails regularly using proper nail clippers. Cut straight across, never at an angle or down the edges. This can cause ingrown toenails.

Beware of high heels

Be shoe savvy. Wear high heels and pointed shoes for special occasions only, and always wear the right shoes for the job.

If you have to wear heels at work, wear comfortable shoes to and from the office and only wear your smart shoes once you're in the office. Also, try to vary the heel height, between low, medium and high

Buy Shoe in the afternoon

Shop for shoes in the afternoon. Your foot swell as the day goes on and if shoes fit in the afternoon when your foot are at their largest, you can be assured they will always be comfortable.

Removing Jagged Skin

The Moisturizing dead skin will not serve any purpose. It is important to remove the dead layer first by exfoliation once every month. This can be done with pumice stones or loofas, but mildly. It also helps remove the dirt and grime stuck to the hardened dead skin. Follow it with a hydrating moisturizer and leave it overnight.

Dry your feet

Dry your feet thoroughly after washing them, especially between the toes, which is where fungal infections such as athlete's foot can develop.

Moisturizer your foot

               

Don't limit your moisturizing routine to just your face and hands. Lack of moisture can leave your foot skin dry, scaly and chapped. The chapped skin can then become extremely dry and hard, especially on the heels. This area can then become a magnet for dirt and grime which will start sticking to it. Chapped hulls do not just have an unseemly appearance but can also be painful.

Choose the suitable product

One of the best things you can do for your foot is to incorporate organic ingredients and products into your foot care routine. Choosing organic skin care ensures that you are not exposing your feet skin to harsh chemicals that can disrupt its moisture barrier and cause irritation and dryness.
