Feet looking a bit worse for wear? No wonder. Just think about how much attention we give to the skin on our face, yet our feet are often forgotten. The skin on our soles is 12 times thicker than elsewhere on the body so needs a special kind of love. Here’s how to get your feet baby smooth and summer ready in three easy steps…
Step One: Get Filing
Invest in a foot file (the one from Margaret Dabbs is hard to beat ). The advice is to always file dry skin so you have a better sense of what you are doing and to ensure you don’t over do it. Water weakens the skin and can cause cracks to open and split.
Step Two: Soak & Scrub
A warm water foot soak helps to deep clean feet ease tired muscles. Add essential oils knows for their antimicrobial and antifungal properties – such as Lavender and Bergamot oils (found in our DREAM blend) or the Orange Oil in our GLOW blend to help keep skin healthy and odour free
Top Tip: Use a heaped spoonful DREAM or GLOW Bedtime Bath Salts to exfoliate each foot in turn before soaking in a warm foot bath to get super smooth, bacteria free feet skin and to ease away tiredness at the end of a busy day
Be sure to dry feet thoroughly, including in between the toes
Step Three: Nourish
Just like the skin on the rest of our body, the skin on our feet can easily become dehydrated leading to flaking and deep painful cracks in the skin. Walking on hard surfaces (or with hard sandals) can make it worse, which is why feet often harden and feel rougher in the summer. Because the skin on our feet is so tough a super-rich nourishment is needed (body moisturiser won’t cut it). Our award-winning DREAM Night-Cream for Feet is especially designed to penetrate and nourish the thicker skin and to help heal and repair while you are sleeping. For best effects use nightly before bed.
