To be honest, you can look fully dressed up and all prim and proper all over your body; but if you forget to care for your feet, it can give off a very bad impression. This is especially true if your feet get badly tanned.
We have all seen slippers leaving marks on the feet after a day out in the sun. It's not a pretty sight, is it? Along with that, there are problems like cracked heels and even dry skin on the surface of the foot.
So, here's how you can actually take care of your feet with these best ways.
1. Foot Scrub:
Your foot collects dead skin cells as well, which is kind of obvious, but we tend to do nothing about it. So remember to use a foot scrub. You can use store-bought scrubs or even make one for yourself at home using brown sugar and olive oil.
When you are exposed to the sun, it is common knowledge that you need sunscreen. But way too many people avoid using sunscreen on their feet. The reasons for this could be sheer laziness, or even fear of wasting sunscreen on the feet. Whatever the reason, do not skip sunscreen on your feet.
3. For Cracked Heels:
For cracked heels, one of the best things that you can do is to apply some petroleum jelly on your heels, and then put on a pair of socks and go to sleep. Lather your heels up well with petroleum jelly if you have severe cracks.
4. Cuticle Care:
Cuticles are not fun to deal with or to look at. Apply a cuticle balm or cream on your toenails and keep it on overnight. In the morning, the cuticles will be softened and it will be easier to push it back.
5. Clip Those Toenails:
Make sure you clip your toenails on a regular basis. If you don't, it can get quite unhygienic, and this is especially true if you wear sneakers or covered shoes.
