Step confidently into Summer
In Winter all you have to do is wear socks or closed shoes and your feet will stay protected. But in Summer, when you want to sport those strappy sandals and cool off in trendy hawaiis your feet will attract a lot of dust and dirt, and a daily maintenance regime is required to keep your feet clean and protected. Here are some quick to do suggestions from Enrich Salons.
Wash your feet every night before going to bed by soaking them in cold water for around 15 minutes. This will take the dirt, grime and sweat off the day’s wear and tear. Follow this up with an application of coconut oil and keep this overnight. Wear a pair of thin cotton socks to keep the goodness in.
Moisturise your feet daily with any lotion of your choice or a foot cream. But do not use too much of it, especially between the toes, as it might cause fungal infections.
Before stepping out in open footwear do not forget to apply sunscreen on your feet. Your feet tan as much as any other parts of your skin. If you suffer from sweaty or foul smelling feet, spray anti-perspirents between the toes.
Wear footwear that are as open as possible so your feet can breathe and be comfortable. Mesh fabric footwear are fashionable as well as good for Summer.
If your feet are chapped, shea butter is a great remedy. Just soak your feet every day in a tub of warm water in which a tea spoon of shea butter has been added.
So go ahead. Put your best foot forward this Summer.
