Our feet don’t have it easy you know. They carry us around all day. We hide them under socks and shoes. They’re prone to unfairly being called ugly! Sometimes, they just need a bit of extra love and attention, some feet treats! Besides, with summer frighteningly close, it’ll be strappy sandal season before we know it. Our feet have a special way of telling us when they feel unloved, in not always pleasant ways. Yep, it’s time to schedule in some TLFC, some tender loving footcare.
The Ultimate Feet Wellness Guide
For Feet That Smell a Little Bit
Smelly feet are nothing new and are especially more common as the weather gets hotter. Science tells us that it’s actually nothing to be worried about- it’s simply a case of the bacteria in sweat having a little bit of a ‘reaction’. But that doesn’t make it any more pleasant (for us or the people we share a home with). Luckily, Dr Hauschka has come up with a solution. He sounds like a medical authority, but actually ‘he’ is just a skincare brand. Dr Hauschka’s Deodorising Foot Cream, is a luxurious cream infused with rosemary oils and sage to help with the whiff and rice starch to absorb the moisture. The perfect treat for the pongy feet!
For Feet That Feel a Little Rough
Dry, cracked heels are hands down (or feet down) our biggest summer gripe! Crusty, dry and unattractive, they turn lovely outfits and beautiful strappy shoes into a mere stage for our ugly trotters. Time and time we’ve read that regular moisturiser is the answer, but what are we to do if we don’t remember until we – aghast- catch site of our feet in a reflective surface. The answer comes in this little wonder foot file by Scholl. Scholl’s Pedi Velvet Smooth Electronic Pedicure Foot File, really is a miracle worker and is just as much a treat for your feet as an actual pedicure!
For Feet That are Feeling a Little Hurt
There is no two ways about it, in the summer, shoes rub our feet. Especially sandals and especially slip-ons. The sheer excitement that comes after buying a new pair of snazzy summer platforms, is swiftly replaced with horror as your feet make it known how much they are tearing at your skin. Whilst it’s difficult for us to sell plasters as a treat, you really will be grateful. These Compeed blister plasters are as terrific as they are unglamorous. Clear, discreet and easy to pop into your handbag. Your feet will thanks us later.
For Feet that are Tired
Carrying us from A to B can be a tiring old job for our poor feet and sometimes all they need is a bit of rejuvenation. Formulated the Bliss, this refreshing foot cream both exfoliates and hydrates. Drawing from their Spa expertise and foot professional credentials, Bliss have formulated a cream which uses cooling peppermint to stimulate your tired toes, all whilst leaving them silky smooth.
Finally, after endless feet treats, if your feet are still being a bit whiney, you could always buy them a new pair of shoes!
