3 Steps to Beautiful Stress Free Feet

Aug 17, 2007
Everyone is living a fast paced life these days. With all the stress and things to handle, do we always take the time out to care about our feet? More often than not, the answer to that questions is no. We are always on our feet, and yet we neglect to give them the care they need, which if given would reduce a little bit of their stress from our every day lives. This article lists 3 simple and fast ways for us to care for our feet, making them look better and feel better.

1. Exfoliate the stress our of those toes
Hard skin accumulates naturally on different parts on the body, especially at the base of our feet. When too much hard skin accumulates, it sometimes also becomes quite painful to wear certain shoes and make certain moves. To prevent too much hard skin for accumulating it is important that we exfoliate the feet with a gentle scrub. Different kinds and brand of scrubs are available to use, made especially for the feet and which come in different scents. Choose your favourite scent to relax yourself whilst you massage your feet with the scrub. If you are lucky, get your partner to do this for you! For better scrubbing try using a pumice, as this will help get rid of that hard skin more effectively. You will be amazed how relaxing scrubbing your feet will feel, and moreover how soft and smooth your feet will feel afterwards. Scrubbing will also make your feet and legs feel lighter, reducing the stress your feet feel. I recommend this scrubbing exercise at least twice a week to make the stress free feeling last long.

2. Moisturise for a silky smooth finish
After the scrubbing exercise is complete, continue showing your feet some tender loving care by applying a nice moisturising lotion to them. Again, if your partner is around, or perhaps even a friend, get them to help you our. You can even give each other these mini pedicures so that you make sure both of you are running on stress free feet. Massage the moisturising lotion well to both your feet, do not rush too much as you need to savour the moment and relax while you can.

3. Color your beautiful toes
Now although this last step applies only for the ladies (and also those adventurous men), all the guys should listen up and take notes so that they will be able to give their partner a complete mini pedicure. The final step of our quickly and stress relieving pedicure is the application of nail polish to the toe-nails. I always stress that nail polish should be applied to the toe-nails, at least a clear colored one, as this final step make a world of a difference. It makes your feet look very well groomed and well taken care of, which also show that you take the time to take care of yourself. This final step comes especially handy in the summer-time when a lot of open-toe shoes are worn. Therefore go for your favourite color and apply nail polish to your toe-nails! For long lasting nail polish I always recommend first applying a base coat, as this both protects your nail and ensure the nail polish lasts longer. After applying the base coat, apply one or two coats of your favourite nail polish. Finally, once the nail polish has dried off a little bit, apply a clear top coat. Besides giving your toe-nails that shiny look, the top coast also helps the nail polish last much longer.

These 3 simple yet essential steps take very little time to put into practice, and the after-effect you will enjoy will last a long time. Take a little stress out of your daily life, by taking a little extra care of your feet. Ensure that you are walking on stress free feet!
