Keeping Feet Healthy
We all secretly hope our ten little toe soldiers will line up straight and look pretty and clean. But unfortunately, just like the rest of our body, they need TLC. Can you remember buying a pair of to die for shoes, but in Ĺ a size smaller? Squeezing your pretty little feet into shoes that donít fit well will result in problems. When you think about that or the fact that we take close to 9,000 steps a day, our fee take a lot of abuse. Not only are they suffocating in nylon hose, but they are absorbing the shock of your body weight with every step x 9,000. Those are some unhappy campers. And if abuse is not reprimanded with some care and attention, our feet avenge themselves with bunions, corns, calluses, and fungus.
First and foremost, keeping feet healthy requires wearing the correct size shoe, and shoes that are not too tight at the toes. If we wear tight fitting shoes, eventually our toes will become disfigured. And then we can definitely say goodbye to sexy open toe pumps or stylish, feminine sandals. Especially if you are on your feet most of the day, sexy sandals arenít going to work and you will be in pain. Many of todayís shoe designers are coming out with pretty shoes in wide widths. Be comfortable, save your feet, and get the job done successfully!
Next, get a pedicure every couple of weeks, especially in the cold seasons, when heels get dry and cracked. If you canít get to a salon due to weather conditions or budget, try an at home pedicure. Of course it is not the same, but you will still pamper those feet and yourself in the process. Try some soaks and scrubs you can find at the drug store for a reasonable price. Even better, take one cup of Epsom salt and a few drops of your favorite essential oil and dissolve in a basin of warm water. Follow with an exfoliating foot scrub and pumice stone and work those heels. Use a dry brush to slough off dead skin around the toes and all over the feet. Then massage your feet with your favorite moisturizer, push back the cuticles with an orangewood stick and trim the nails straight. Then wash your feet with soap and water. Keep them clean or apply your favorite polish to lift your mood!
The feet are definitely the most abused part of the body. A little therapeutic touch can bring them back to life. Give yourself a foot massage every evening with your favorite lotion or oil. Massage each foot for at least 30 seconds. If you do this before bedtime, it will relax your entire body and help you sleep better.
