Now that winter season has exited, it is time to bid goodbye to those cozy woollen socks and closed-toed shoes and let your feet breathe once gain by rocking your favorite summer sandals.
But before you go barefoot, your feet may be in need of some pampering to avoid a faux pas like cracked heels or calluses. Here are few useful tips that will help flaunt your feet to the rest of the world once again.
1. Keep’em Clean
The sweaty summers can make your feet smell foul due. To avoid smelly feet and foul odor, wash your feet well every day and keep them dry at all times. You may also use the universal trick of soaking your feet in warm water. To relax, you may use lavender oil or just some salt.
Also, avoid wearing the same shoes for two days in a row and let them air dry to keep the odor at bay.
2.Don’t Forget To Moisturize
As good as they may look on your feet, summer sandals don’t offer much cushioning leaving you with dry, cracked heels. This might make walking barefoot on the beach or sporting your favorite flip-flops a bit embarrassing and even painful. An easy remedy to avoid this situation is doubling up the moisturizer. Apply a thick layer of nourishing foot cream every night at bedtime to moisturize your feet and keep your skin soft.
3.Get a Pedicure
While you may want to avoid wearing bright colored nail polishes that can leave stains on your nails, do get a pedicure done every fortnight to keep your nails clean and pamper your feet. Soak your feet in warm water for 10 minutes and then use a foot file to remove calluses and dead skin. Trim your nails and then apply a nourishing cream to moisturize your feet.
