Our feet work particularly hard in the summer. We’re out and about more, walking further and generally being more active than in the cold, dark months.
In the winter, feet are all tucked up like hibernating creatures. Surrounded by thick socks and cosy worn-in boots. In the UK, it can take more than one summer to wear in a pair of sandals if the weather is cool. Boots get worn day in, day out from Autumn to Spring.
Long walks combined with rubbing straps from newish sandals and exposure to the sun, combine to make our feet dry and in need of a treat.
At the end of a long day, follow my tips for a quick pampering session:
- Remove your toe nail polish
- Wash your feet with your favourite shower gel or soap
- Apply a luxurious foot treatment, rubbing it well into dryer areas such as your heels.
Here are a few of my favourites:
For cooling hot and swollen feet
For exfoliation without the hassle
For luxurious deodorising
For overall beautifying
For sorting out cracked heels
If only feet could actually say “thank you”.
