Baby Soft Feet
In the summer months our feet get the heat. Wearing sandals, flip-flops, or trekking in bare feet cause dryness and cracking. It is the time when our feet snag on the bed sheets and we look before wearing shoes that don’t cover the heel.
Our feet form protective layers called calluses that become thick, rough, and unattractive. It is important to give some regular attention to the feet during the warmer months to keep them healthy and looking their best. As you await your next pedicure, there is something that you can do in the meantime.
Using a foot file or pumice stone will help to remove the calluses. They can be used after soaking your feet in warm water or sitting in a warm bath. By briskly rubbing the callus with the tool the skin will start to slough away and show that smooth skin underneath. Be careful not to rub to forcefully as this will cause a lesion on the skin.
And don’t forget to put lotion on afterward. Feet need to be moisturized too to keep the skin soft. To avoid slipping in your shoes, apply the lotion before bed so that it can soak in while you sleep.
Regular pedicures are the best way to maintain the feet during the heat and we look forward to seeing you on your next visit.
