Healthy Skin Tips: Caring For Your Feet

One of the best healthy skin tips we can use is to look after your feet.

The great comedian Tommy Cooper used to tell this joke: ‘My feet are killing me – every night they grab me around the throat.’

How many times have we used the expression ‘my feet are killing me?’ We take care of the skin on all other parts of the body and neglect our feet. Yet think how much use our feet get during the day.

To be healthy we need exercise and often this involves pounding the feet on the ground. Many of us have jobs that require us to stand up much of the day or at least to walk from one place to another regularly.

In the same way that it makes sense to look after the tyres on a car (as the only contact we have with the road), we owe it to our feet to keep them in good condition. There are several conditions, such as Athletes Foot, blister, corns and bunions, which can affect the health of our feet.

We would notice if we could not use them so here are some healthy skin tips to help your feet.

Soak your feet in warm, soapy water every day. This will help soothe the aches and soften the skin, at least temporarily. In the past I have undertaken a fair amount of hill walking and soaking the feet after a long walk was always a delight.

Infection develops where there is dry skin and cracks so it is a good idea to remove dead skin cells by using a pumice stone or a foot scrub.

To finish the pampering of your feet, moisturize the soles as these do not have oil glands and of course get the most abuse during the day.

A great way to look after your feet is to use Proto-col Instant Pedicure as this contains Dead Sea salts to remove the dead skin cells, Lemongrass as an antiperspirant, the anti-fungal treatment tea tree oil and various natural oils to ease and moisturise the feet.
