Foot Spas and Foot Cream: Be Your Own Professional

Tired of constantly hiding your ugly dry feet and hideous calluses? Be ashamed no more by giving your feet the treatment they truly deserve. There are many ways in which you can rid yourself of these problems. If you are a busy bee who does not have enough time to waste to visit a foot clinic, you can treat yourself to your very own foot spa at home. You don’t even need to dedicate an hour of your free time giving your feet the treatment they need because you can still try to do other things while giving yourself your very own foot spa.All you need to do is to prepare materials like a basin where you can comfortably soak your feet, a pumice or loofah to scrub your heels, soft towels, and of course your favorite set of foot cream products. Once all of these are ready, prepare lukewarm water in your basin and soak your feet on the water for 10 to 15 minutes. Soaking will help loosen the dead skin cells and calluses that you will need to scrub off later. Make sure that the water is lukewarm because you can scald your feet if it’s too hot and loosening your dead skin will be impossible if it’s too cold.After soaking, pat your feet dry with some of your soft towels. Do not dry it thoroughly because you need the moisture for the foot scrub you will apply. Choose a good exfoliating foot cream and apply it on your heels and on the top of your feet. Scrub the top of your feet using circular motions and use the pumice or loofah in getting rid of the calluses and dry skin on your heels. An exfoliating foot cream with ingredients such as aloe vera or eucalyptus is good if you need to relax because of the refreshing feeling that they give.After you’ve scrubbed your feet, soak and wash them again with water then pat them dry with another batch of soft towels. Again, it is important that you do not overdry your feet because you need the appropriate moisture to lock in your feet using your moisturizer. Just choose a foot cream with good moisturizing qualities and slather it on your feet to keep them soft and well-moisturized.Follow these steps and voila, you can be your very own foot care professional with this easy do-it-yourself foot spa tutorial.
