You probably go to great lengths to take care of your body – you eat right, exercise regularly, and invest in products that keep you healthy. If you are like many people, though, you may not be giving your hands and feet the care they need.
4. SOAK YOUR FEET
Soaking your feet in lukewarm water can work wonders for your feet and the rest of your body. A good soak can soothe sore feet, hydrate your skin, promote blood circulation, reduce swelling, and rinse away bacteria before they can settle into minute sores or cracks in your skin. Pouring some Epsom salts into your foot tbath exfoliates skin, alleviates pain, removes splinters, can treat fungal infections, and relaxes your entire body.
5. CLEAN UNDER YOUR NAILS
Even if you wash your hands and feet well, dirt and grime can hide under your nails. Use a high quality nail brush to scrub fingernails and toenails to gently any dirt or debris stuck there. Hold the brush in a downward direction so that it is perpendicular to your nail. Move the brush gently along the entire nail and scrub back and forth. Rinse thoroughly.
6. APPLY LOTION TO YOUR HANDS AND FEET
Lotion helps lock in moisture to prevent your hands and feet from drying out. The Daisy Aesthetics Service suggests applying moisturizer during the “three-minute window” after washing your skin.
