Put a spring in your step.
Your feet are a duo that tirelessly support you every day of your life. The fact is, not only do your feet enjoy regular attention and pampering, but your entire well-being benefits from you taking good care of your feet.
A case for more foot care.
Are you more of a “foot care: it has to be done” person or a “foot care: I love it” person? This article offers you a chance to become the latter – if you’re not already, that is. Foot care has a lot going for it and nothing against it.
Healthy feet are beautiful feet.
Did you know? The skin on your feet has fewer sebaceous glands than other parts of your body and therefore dries out more easily. If cracks and fissures appear, not only is this a cosmetic issue but also an invitation for different pathogens to enter your body through your skin. By taking good care of your feet, you help to stabilise the skin’s natural barrier and provide your feet with a more effective defence mechanism. Happy, healthy feet require your love and attention, here are a few easy ways to prioritise your feet with self-care.
What you can do: give yourself a pedicure.
Foot care can be more than just cutting your nails. How about trying these three steps?
Step 1: remove hard skin
Hard skin is a useful protective layer that you shouldn’t really remove. However, anywhere that it bothers you or starts to crack, you can gently remove excess hard skin using a pumice stone or foot file. The best solution for dry skin.
Step 2: take care of your nails

Step 3: moisturise your feet

Then find a comfortable place to sit, a towel to dry off, and perhaps a blanket to put over your knees.
