I am a bit of a beauty junkie about many things – bath and body products, skincare and lately, I’m even starting to take care of my hands, now that I’ve found a hand cream to love. But there’s one part of my body that’s quite sorely neglected.
Are you the same?
For whatever reason it is, I have never really paid much attention to my feet. Sometimes, when I remember, I apply my body oil to my legs. Most times, I don’t and so its only applied on my arms. I never used to take care of my hands either, but I do believe that my nightly hand cream treatments have helped the skin on my hands. They look better, and even clearer in tone. At least my hands aren’t giving away my real age 😉
I was pondering this conundrum about my feet while I was cutting my toenails recently, and realised just how awful looking the skin on my feet and toes were. It looked so dry 🙁 I’m lucky I don’t suffer from cracked heels but I can never say never!
I think our feet are hard done by most of the time. They work so hard, taking us places, keeping up upright and we reward them with… nothing. So I’m going to try to take a little extra care of my feet. I plan to start by applying some creams or even just my regular body oils to my feet before bed. I figure that this way, I won’t track oily patches all over my bedroom and house as I pad about.
I was even contemplating getting one of those bed socks. I read that you can slather on some oil or thick cream or body butter on your feet, wear your socks to bed and wake up with lovely soft feet. I naturally have no idea where to start so if you have some tips for taking care of your feet, please do share!
Do you take care of your feet? Do you have recommendations for foot creams or tips to care for your feet?
I discovered that I have some foot cream and even a foot mask pack lying around so I might start there. If you have more recs, please please do share! My poor feet will thank you for it 😉
