Happy Wednesday everyone. Yesterday the temperature reached 77 degrees here in Memphis, TN, a preview of warmer weather to come after a record breaking cold winter season. I was going out to run some errands and wanted to wear some open toe shoes but I looked at my feet and said, "Nay, not today." I quickly realized that it was time for a pedicure. But I was reminded that soon we will be in sandals and wearing open toes shoes again and now is the time to get our feet in shape. Are you with me on this? Not only do I want my feet to look cute, I also want them to be healthy. So I want to give you three tips to get your feet ready for sandal weaher.
First, inspect your feet for open areas and discolorations. You may need to speak with you health care provider if you notice problems, have Diabetes or are coping with some other health issue. Soak your feet in warm water for 10-15 minutes. Add a liquid soap and use a natural Body Polish to scurb and exfoliate dead skin from your toes and the top of your feet. (Peppermint is my favorite Body Polish.)
Next, The skin under the bottom of your feet is different from the skin on the top of your feet. Use a pumice device to scrub your heels and the bottom of your feet to remove dead skin. Rinse well.
Finally, dry your feet thoroughly, especially between the toes, using a clean towel. Apply your favorite Body Butter over your entire feet to replace oils and add moisture. Allow your feet to absorb the nourishing oils, then put on a pair of white socks to warm your feet and enhance the effectiveness of the ingredients in the Body Butter.
Guys, this routine will work for men and women. In fact, you can have fun treating each other's feet to a natural foot treatment. Until next time, be encouraged.
