How To Create A Daily Foot Care Routine: Maintain Healthy Feet With These Simple Tips
Step 1: Foot Soak
The first step is to soak your feet. A foot soak is a great way to relax your muscles and soften the skin on your feet. Fill your bath or a large bowl with water high enough to cover your entire feet, up to your ankles. Place a Goat Milk Foot Fizzie into the water and let it dissolve. For optimal results, we recommend soaking for 10-15 minutes at minimum.
Step #2 Exfoliate
Exfoliating your feet helps remove dead skin cells, keeps your feet soft, and improves blood circulation. Apply a generous amount of the Whipped Goat Milk Body Scrub onto your wet feet and massage gently in a circular motion. Be sure to focus on the areas that are most prone to dryness like the heels and balls of your feet, and toes. Rinse thoroughly and pat dry. You can also use a foot file or a foot brush to remove any remaining dead skin cells. Exfoliating is really important because it can often prevent the formation of corns and calluses.
Step #3 Clip Toenails
Keeping your toenails trimmed is also an important step in your foot care routine. Try to clip them straight across, and don’t cut them too short because this could cause ingrown toenails. If you have trouble reaching your toenails, you can also use a foot file. Be sure to clean any tools after each use to prevent infections.
Step #4 Moisturize
After you’ve done all the steps above, it’s now time to moisturize your feet to keep them soft and smooth. Generously apply our Sole Keeper® foot cream for instant nourishment due to its ultra-hydrating formula and unique blend of goat milk, avocado oil, and shea butter. You can also use our Sole Soother Balm for a full foot pampering⎯ just as if you were at the spa!
Other Ways To Care For Your Feet
Massaging your feet after a long day can feel so good and help you unwind. It can also help with improved blood circulation, stimulate muscles, reduce tension, and pain relief. You can use a foot roller or a tennis ball to roll gently under your feet for a few minutes.
Wear Comfortable Shoes
Wearing uncomfortable shoes and ones that don’t fit⎯ such as being too tight or too loose can lead to foot problems like blisters, calluses, and even ingrown toenails. When buying shoes, test for comfort, fit, and that they don’t rub your heel or feet when standing and walking. It’s very important to wear shoes that fit well and provide good support.
Now that you have the best tips on how to take care of your feet, be sure to add a foot care routine to your skincare routine.
