How to take care of your feet and nails

Thanks to our feet we are able to move and to walk and to explore the world without any problems. As a result our feet need constant care in order to be beautiful and healthy. We should avoid any problems because we must remember that our feet demand the same attention as the other parts of our body.

We shall tell you about five main ways to take care of your feet

  1. It is necessary to make your feet sleek.

Get used to the fact that you should use pumice-stone regularly. Especially in summer when you wear sandals and your feet are noticeable.

So, you will need to soak your feet for about fifteen minutes and remove the dead cells with the help of pumice-stone. It will help you to look well maintained every day.

Various scrubs and peelings on the basis of sugar or fruit pits can be also very effective, because just as the pumice-stone they help to remove dead cells from your feet. But after exfoliating you should not forget to apply a thick layer of moisturizing cream.

If you have a problem of calluses then you should use creams with salicylic acid in order to soften them and remove.

Creams which contain Vaseline can be really effective it attracts moisture to the skin and this process will help you to forget about dry heels very soon.

     3.  Be careful with fungus.

Fungus is a widespread disease. Many people suffer from it but it is not correct to ignore it. You can find different gels, creams, ointments and sprays which will help you to get rid of this problem. But they help only in case if fungus is located on feet. Nail fungus is much more difficult to treat. All these products are effective in the same way so you can choose the one you prefer.

Foot sweating is one more problem that may occur. To get rid of it you should use special powders and talcs.

All the medications should be applied on the dry feet.

Good hygiene is the main condition of healthy feet. Don`t forget to wash your feet (especially between the toes)and wear clean socks every day. Fungus appears in damp conditions so be sure that your feet are always dry.

    4.  Remember about sunscreen creams.

You will be surprised but application of sunscreens on your feet is necessary when you wear sandals. It will help to protect your feet from heat damage.

    5. Pedicure.

Pedicure is necessary to maintain good condition of your nails but the effect depends on the technique of the professional. Incorrect cut of cuticle may lead to ingrown of the nail or even inflammation because of infection.

With age our nails become more delicate and dry. All the nail polishes and polish removers can make your nails damaged and dry. In order to moisturize your nail, apply and rub Vaseline or an ointment with vitamin E into the nail and the cuticle.
