Our summer foot care tips

Summer is the season of sun, fun and enjoyment; it brings hot weather, light clothing and outdoor activities.

Exposure to the sun and hot surfaces like sand and concrete can leave your poor dogs dry and rough, therefore in summer season feet needs extra care. Here are some tips for keeping your feet healthy and beautiful :

 

Exfoliate your foot At Least Once A Week

Scrubbing  your feet will help you get rid of surface dry skin cells, making them look and feel smoother. Moisturize it daily and use foot powder or foot sprays to avoid smelly feet. When you come home wash them frequently. Your moisturizer will be more effective when you slough off flaky skin first.  H&B Peeling Cream for Feet (Item # 287) is the perfect 3 in 1 solution for pampering and regenerating the skin in both feet and hands. The cream provides the ultimate treatment trio: softening and removing dry and coarse dead skin cells, scrubbing and thorough cleaning and finally a great nourishment.

 Keep a Pumice Stone in Your Shower

Hard, cracked skin around the heels is very common in summer, often caused by open-backed sandals and flip-flops rubbing around the edge of the heel. Use a foot file, emery board or pumice stone to gently rub away the hard skin, then apply a rich moisturizing cream to soften the skin.

 Moisturize your foot

Your heels are prone to over-use—and as a result, they tend to dry out more easily than the rest of your foot. The heel is also protected by thicker skin, which means that it’s less penetrable and it’ll take a little more effort to lock moisture in.  Apply a lotion or cream immediately after you shower to retain the moisture your feet have already soaked up. For even better results, reapply a moisturizer right before bed. H&B Calendula Butter for Cracked Feet 100ml  (Item # 299) and H&B foot care creams seria   are the ultimate solution for dry, cracked feet skin. It improves blood flow, neutralizes unpleasant odors, softens and refreshes tired, swollen feet. Calendula is a plant known as nature’s first aid for treating skin problems. This natural butter is based on Olive oil, Lavender oil, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Coconut Butter, Dead Sea minerals and Tea Tree oil that is known as highly effective against feet and toenails fungus. It is also enriched with organic oils.

Don’t Forget to Apply Sunscreen

Lots of people neglect to apply a good SPF to their feet, but don’t make this big mistake. Not only does the skin on your tootsies need protection, but nails are made of protein and are therefore as vulnerable as your skin . We cannot resist wearing sandals, flip flops or other footwear or you want to go barefoot then, do not forget your best friend “Sunscreen” it would be good if it has High SPF. Try applying it frequently, if possible.

Take a break from nail polish

Since nails are a living part of your anatomy, they need a break to “breathe” from time to time so they can continue healthy growth patterns and rid themselves of chemical residue. We  recommend a break from nail polish about once a month for a few days to a week. This can help prevent discoloration—particularly if you like to use dark-colored nail polishes and keep your pedi looking pretty.

 Eat Foot-Friendly Foods

Believe it or not, some foods can cause your feet to swell and become bloated. High in Salts and Sugars foods can cause foot puffiness, so you’d better minimize your intake of these. Drink a good quantity of water.

With the help of these foot care tips you can keep your feet soft and healthy.
