In order to get rid of the dead skin cells on your feet, try to use a pumice stone. Don’t opt for the metal scrubbers available in the market.

One of the easiest ways to take care of your feet is by wearing socks. Try to apply a good foot cream (in a circular motion) before you head to bed and cover your feet with socks to retain the moisture. You can even use olive oil or coconut oil on your feet.

With winters all set to give you a knock at your door, have you guys prepared to deal with the struggles of skin care during the season? Your feet too require a lot of TLC in the winter!

So without further ado, let’s get started and discuss how you can make your feet look nice and pretty this season:

Sock it up: One of the easiest ways to take care of your feet is by wearing socks. Try to apply a good foot cream (in a circular motion) before you head to bed and cover your feet with socks to retain the moisture. You can even use olive oil or coconut oil on your feet.

Foot bath: Another important thing for you is having a good foot bath at least once a week. Just take some lukewarm water and add a few drops of any essential oil along with a few drops of your regular body wash. Voila! You have your own luxurious foot bath. Just soak your feet in it for at least 15-20 minutes before you start rubbing your feet with a help of a soft toothbrush.

Stone it: In order to get rid of the dead skin cells on your feet, try to use a pumice stone. Don’t opt for the metal scrubbers available in the market. The key to soft skin is rubbing your feet gently with the stone.  Use it nicely on your heels to make your skin even and soft.  

Nailed it: It’s very important for you to let your nails breath. Try removing your nail paint every week and avoid coating a new nail paint over the previous shade. It hardly takes five minutes to remove a nail paint but can be a very healthy habit to inculcate.

Exfoliate: Simple sugar scrubs can do wonders on your skin. Not only will they help you in getting rid of the dead skin cells but they will also help you in removing tan. Just take two tablespoons of brown sugar, add two teaspoons of olive oil in it. Now scrub your feet with this paste for at least ten minutes before washing it off with cold water.
