If you’ve been outside or have been wearing shoes most of the day, make it a point to wash your feet before calling it a day. In fact, it is always a good idea to wash your feet thoroughly with soap and water before you get ready for bed. Unclean feet will not absorb moisturizers and nutrients, may harbor microbes and over time lead to cracked and aged-looking feet. Be thorough, and do not neglect toe webs and cuticles.
Regular exfoliation is not only important for the skin on your face but for your feet as well! Use a foot buffer and scrub once a week and visit the salon every 4 to 6 weeks for a deeper exfoliation.
Moisturizing your feet should not only be done in winter, but all year round. If you don’t moisturize regularly your skin will dry out and it will increase the risk of cracked heels. We recommend massaging a foot cream into the souls of your feet after you have used a buffer.
4. Give your feet a rest
If you’ve been on your feet all day, it would be a good idea to give your feet a rest when you get home. Using a footbath or relaxing in the bathtub, soak your feet for 10 to 20min and finish by massaging a foot balm onto your feet after drying.
