It’s never too late to look after your feet – here’s some handy tips to keep feet feeling happy and healthy…
Step 1: Exfoliate
Step 2: Trim Toe Nails
Step 3: Moisturise
Finally, apply a good moisturising cream freely and use a foot spray to refresh your feet.
To maintain optimum cleanliness feet should be washed daily in lukewarm water using a mild soap and then dried thoroughly.
Changing your shoes regularly will also help to keep feet fresh.
- Get to know your feet well – if you check them on a daily basis you’ll soon notice any cuts and breaks in the skin or unusual changes in colour or temperature.
- Wash, but don’t soak your feet each day. Soaking can destroy natural oils, but a wash in warm soapy water, followed by a thorough dry – especially between the toes – keeps them odour free and fresh.
- The skin on your feet is different from anywhere else on your body – so buy a special foot powder if you need to reduce moisture and use a foot moisturiser to keep skin soft and supply.
Always speak to a health professional before trying out a new footcare regime.
