Spring has Sprung

Now that spring is here and summer is just around the corner, you want to make sure that you are taking care of your feet. Since the poor things have been closed off from the outside world shoved inside boots and thick socks, you have probably not thought about the state of your feet for months.25Here are some top tips to help you get your feet ready for the (hopefully) sunnier weather:

1. Foot Massage:

This is not only a great form of relaxation, but it will help the blood circulation in the foot. You could even just use a foot spa and soak your feet in lukewarm water.footmassage2. Remove Dead Skin:

Do this straight after using the foot spa, your skin will be soft and it will help to get rid of the dead skin. The easiest way to do this is by using a foot file. These will remove any hard skin on the foot and leave them feeling smooth. Try to find something electronic like the Scholl Velvet Smooth Foot File which will do all of the work for you. This uses a rotating microlumina head to exfoliate the foot gently. Avoid using anything too harsh, because you don’t want to damage the skin.skin-care-tips-naturally-hindi1-13. Nourish Your Feet:

Once the dead skin has been removed, you want to maintain that softness by moisturising. The best thing to do is moisturise before you go to sleep, that way your feet have the entire night to replenish themselves. There are now special moisture socks you can buy, that lock in the moisture for your feet! This will ensure that you have super soft feet in the morning.nourishing-foot-cream-sudocrem4.  Paint Your Toenails:

Your feet always look so much better when your toes are painted. Some good suggested colours for this Summer is something bright like hot pink or coral. Make sure you use a clear base coat; you don’t want to end up staining your toenails. Investing in toe separators can make the whole process a lot easier. If you want to treat yourself, you can even go and get a pedicure.toenails5.  Invest in Sandals:

This will ensure that your feet are not trapped throughout the summer. Make sure they are good quality sandals, as the last thing you want is for them to break after five seconds of walking around. They need to be comfortable too, as you don’t want to end up with cuts and rubbing marks all over your feet. Try avoiding anything with a strange placement of straps, otherwise you may end up with very strange tan lines!low-heel-sandals-598x340Flip-flops are the best type to go for; they ensure maximum exposure and a high level of comfort. Buy a pair that provide arch support and cushion the feet. You can even buy scented foot spray – Peppermint foot spray can really refresh your feet throughout the day.

6. Walk Barefoot at Home:

You want to give your feet a break after a long day in shoes, taking off any shoes as soon as you step into the house can be beneficial. The best thing to do is wash them as soon as you get home as it will ensure that they feel refreshed. After this initial refresh, apply a cuticle treatment to make sure they stay and look the way you want them. Foot powder can also be a great thing to stock up on for the summer. It will soak up any excess moisture and keep your feet feeling fresh.2157929548_barefoot_running1_answer_1_xlarge
