Pretty feet are not just meant for sandals and the beach. Pretty feet mean healthy feet. The feet do so much for people’s bodies. They establish balance for a healthy back. They get people where they need to go. They provide fun dancing the night away.
Skin integrity is about keeping the skin healthy. When skin isn’t healthy, it can cause internal infections brought on by sores and other conditions. Unfortunately, the feet can get banged up. The feet is in both direct and indirect contact with the ground and floor, which both have substantial germs. The feet carry a lot of weight, which causes calluses and cracked heels. The feet are also covered up a lot of the time. This can cause a lot of problems for the skin and nails by way of fungi.
Keep the feet clean by proper washing in the shower or bath. After wearing sandals outside, it’s a good idea to rinse the feet off in the bathtub or with the hose to remove dirt and other substances from the feet. Use a pumice stone or other exfoliating tool to remove dead skin from the bottom of the feet. Allow feet to completely dry. Promptly use lotion, such as mango body lotion as applying lotion to the feet while applying it to the body will help promote overall skin health. Cover the feet with comfortable socks while sleeping so that the feet can either remain or become soft. Allow the feet to receive plenty of oxygen during the day to avoid foot odors and other problems.
Keep the nails trimmed. Be careful to not trim nails too short or it can produce problems, such as ingrown toenails. Clean around the nails with a nail brush while in the shower. Trim off dead skin around the nails. It is useful to have a set of manicure scissors, which successfully removes dead skin. It’s also a good idea to apply cuticle oil around the nails to keep the skin from becoming overly dry.
Feet can seem like they’re a lot of work to keep up, but most of the upkeep occurs while in the shower and after getting out of the shower. Making this a part of the regular grooming process becomes habit after a while and the feet will look amazing. Get a buffer, put on some polish, and voila—pretty feet.
