Your feet play a great role in helping you maintain a good posture. You may be wearing high heels or narrow shoes just to look good, but your feet suffer because of this habit. After walking or running, you may want to pamper your feet. And a good foot spa is a great way of achieving this purpose. A foot spa will relax your feet and make sure that they will stay in good shape. Follow the given tips to make your own foot spa.
Get a bowl of lukewarm water
In the bowl, you should put some oil of your choice and then mix it. If you want to revive your feet, peppermint oil is an ideal choice. On the other hand, lavender oil soothes them. Milk and almond soak can make your feet soft. Remember: to benefit from this treatment, we suggest that you clean your feet properly.
Soak your feet
Now, you should put your feet in the bowl for at least 5 minutes. But if you have put milk or almond oil in the bowl, make sure you soak your feet for 15 minutes.
Use a soft towel
Once you have soaked your feet, make sure you use a soft towel to dry them. Afterwards, you should remove dirt and then clip our toenails.
Massage your feet
You can make use of a cream or rich balm for this purpose. If the bottom of your feet doesn’t feel smooth, you can try a hand-held foot rubber that features a rough surface. Pay special attention to peeling areas, cracks and warts on your feet when doing the massage. If they are worse, make sure you get in touch with a doctor for treatment.
Use a body lotion
You can buy your favorite body lotion or moisturizer in order to use it on your feet. After you have used the lotion on your feet, they will smell sweet. Aside from this, they will be soft to the touch.
If you want to paint your toenails, you should remove the lotion with a good polish remover. Not doing so will make the lotion interfere with the nail polish.
Paint your toenails
Once you have followed the above steps, your last move is to paint your toenails. All you have to do is apply a nail polish. For a glossier finish, we suggest that you use a polish that will take a bit of time to dry.
After you applied the first coat of polish, you should apply another coat that will dry faster. We suggest that you wait for at least half an hour before you put on shoes with closed toes. This is necessary if you want to prevent the polish from peeling off. Lastly, make sure your feet are completely dry prior to doing any type of nail work.
So, if you have been looking to make your own foot spa, we suggest that you use this guide and follow the given steps. In a few minutes, you will have your own foot spa.
