Before putting on summer sandals and flip-flops, give your feet a thorough makeover.
1. Feed every day
Without sebaceous glands, the feet dry out faster than other parts of the body. In fine weather, this phenomenon is accentuated by the repeated snapping of flip-flops or sandals. To remedy this, the ideal is to moisturize your feet all year round with formulas based on glycerin, urea or glycolate.
2. Varnish like a pro
Be careful, even if they are clear, never put the lacquers directly on the nails, so that the pigments do not become impregnated. Always use a base for protection. On the formula side, prefer gel textures, which offer a more harmonious plump effect.
3. Take care of the nails
It’s not just the fingernails that need to be pampered. When you’re not wearing polish, nourish them with a balm or oil, massage all over the nail and around the edges. To keep your cuticles neat, apply an emollient, then push them back with a wooden stick.
4. Relax in the evening
After a day of standing, stomping or walking, the feet need relief to deflate. Immerse them in a basin of lukewarm water. Then wipe them gently by dabbing them with a towel and insisting between the toes. Then perform a relaxing massage.
5. Soften your skin
Rub your feet dry with an emery grater or an electric model to better remove dead cells. Above all, avoid metal files. In addition, you can exfoliate twice a week. Proceed on dry skin, in circular movements, then rinse thoroughly.
6. Avoid heatstroke
If you are prone to sweating, coat your feet with a little talcum powder, the powdery texture of which will help you stay dry. If you sweat a lot, you can also use an antiperspirant cream to apply to the sole of your foot. It will help you regulate the flow of perspiration.
In addition to these mentioned above, you will need to take regular care for your nails using pedicure kit. If you don’t have, don’t worry! Check out our Maryton website, where there are all kinds of foot care products.
