8 BEST FOOT CARE REMEDIES

We tend to care for our hair, hands, and face, but seem to forget about our feet all too often. It shouldn’t be that way. They are your support and have to be the first to be cared for and pampered. They are also the most affected by walking, wearing tight shoes, walking barefoot, doing exercise, etc.

In order to have perfect feet, with no hard skin, callouses, or cracked heels, you just have to have a little bit of time every week. Follow these tips:

1. Use a pumice stone

3. Vegetable Oil

You may not like the feeling at first, but you should keep in mind that it’s very effective for dry or cracked feet. Once you wash and dry them well, put your feet in a bowl with hydrogenated oil. Wear thick socks all night. This will help remove dead cells. You can do it three times a week.

4. Foot Bath with Sea Salt

You should do a weekly foot bath with sea salt for a half hour. It isn’t a big task: you can do it while you watch television or while painting your fingernails. This will make them look more relaxed, especially if you tend to keep standing or sitting down all day at work.

5. Petroleum Jelly

6. Lemon Juice
