Pamper Your Feet!
Feet are hardest working parts of the
body, but we rarely make time to give them the attention they need. A
weekly pampering pedicure and massage is the answer and will leave feet
feeling refreshed and ready for action.
- Soak feet in a bowl of water for
about ten minutes. Add two to three drops of essential oil of lavender
for an even more relaxing effect.
- Dry the feet. Clip the toe-nails
across and file smooth.
- Rub feet with an exfoliating body
scrub, paying particular attention to any rough skin that may have
formed on the heels and the balls of the feet. Wash off all traces of
exfoliator and dry the feet thoroughly.
- Support the foot with one hand by
placing your thumb on the sole and your fingers on the top. Use the
other hand to massage a cooling foot lotion or an overall body
moisturizer into the foot. Start at the base of each toe and work down
the foot making small circular movements with your thumb and
- Work the lotion between the toes and
massage each toe by gently rolling it between your fingers. This helps
to stimulate the circulation and pressure points. Repeat steps 4 and 5
on the other foot.
- Lie down for about five minutes with
your feet above the head, either resting a pillow or against a wall.
This relieves tension in the feet and legs and can help aching veins.
