Perfect and easy foot care
Foot care during the summer is essential for lots of reasons. During these months is when we show off our feet the most in strappy sandals and flip flops, not to mention poolside bathing and swimming in the sea. The environment can have an effect on our feet that may mean extra care should be taken. Getting a pedicure is paramount to taking care of your feet but can be expensive. There are some ways in which you can save money by giving yourself a pedicure at home.
Foot care need not be expensive. Some home remedies can have great results at hardly any cost. Natural products are a good way to look after your feet. Citrus fruit like lemon and orange can be used to make your own foot scrub. Use a couple of teaspoons of their juice mixed with some olive oil or coconut oil and granulated sugar. Massage into the skin then wash off. You will be amazed at the results!
Epsom salts has healing elements to soothe your skin while essential oils like eucalyptus and tea tree are not only beneficial but have great cosmetic effects.
Finally, sand makes one of the best exfoliators. Make sure you give your feet a treat by walking barefoot on the beach this summer!
