There’s an old saying that goes, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” And what do you need for that step? Your feet, of course!
Your feet take you practically everywhere. They allow you to move, whether you’re walking, dancing, or running. Your feet are probably the last part of your body that crosses your mind on any given day, but you wouldn’t be anywhere, doing what you love, without them. While so much attention is given to cleansing our faces and pampering every other part of our body, it’s time to send some love to what keeps us standing on a daily basis.
From simply elevating your feet and massaging them for a few minutes to treating them to a Mediterranean Sea salt soak, here are some ways you can pamper your feet without having to leave the comforts of your own home.
Elevate Your Feet
Standing or sitting for long periods will eventually result in your feet getting tired. Give your feet (and yourself) a break! Take the pressure off of them by propping them up on a cushion. Make sure your legs are elevated 6 to 12 inches above your heart to experience a relaxing effect.
Give Yourself A Massage
There’s nothing like a nice foot rub. A few minutes of massaging your feet in the evening can help clear the day’s aches and worries away. Self-massaging might seem intimidating at first, but follow this sequence for an easy step-by-step technique.
Cut Your Toenails Properly
Trim your nails regularly and remember that cutting straight across is the way to go. Try not to round the corners of your nails when cutting them so they won’t dig down on the sides of your toes.
Wash And Dry Your Feet Well
Wash your feet every day like you mean it. Practicing good foot hygiene is the easiest way to show your appreciation to your feet for all the hard work they do. Scrub them with a washcloth regularly and carefully. Don’t forget to wash between your toes. Then, thoroughly dry your feet and make sure there’s no excess moisture.
Moisturizing helps keep those healthy oils on your skin replenished, so keep your feet in mind when applying lotion or cream all over your body. Give a little more love to your heels as they tend to get dry. On the other hand, do your best to avoid applying anything in between your toes as moisture there may eventually lead to unwanted problems.
Step into tranquility by soaking your feet in warm water and foot salts such as the Lilliuma Detoxify Foot Salt by Better Bath Better Body. Submerging your feet in this relaxing mix will soothe your tired muscles and uplift your mood. It’s the self-care habit you didn’t know you needed.
Your feet will carry you your entire life. That’s why it’s important to pamper them just as much as the rest of your body. Spoil them and yourself sometimes with our Detoxify Foot Salt. Made from Mediterranean Sea salt and infused with pure essential oils, this product gives your feet the TLC they deserve. Just pour half a cup or 1 full cup of Detoxify Foot Salt in a bucket of warm water, dip your feet in, and experience a rejuvenating soak that your feet will thank you for.
