How to have happy feet this monsoon?
Whether it is by jamming them in high heels or by making them suffer the ghastly experience of sweaty socks and even nylon stockings, we always take them for granted. While enduring those humiliations, they further suffer from our basic walking trips every day. That pounding clarifies why feet are most likely to get battered and bruised.
You do not require a luxurious spa therapy to look after your feet. Spending few minutes a day taking care of your feet and picking the right shoes can keep you free of feet woes that may lead to discomfort and even disability issues.
We hope these few tips can help you pamper your feet effortlessly this monsoon:
Smoothen it out
In your daily routine incorporate the use of a pumice stone or foot file on slightly damp heels and calluses. It will help your feet look good in open back shoes.
First, immerse your feet in water or a foot bath for 10 to 15 minutes to help soften the skin. Then gently remove the thickened skin with a pumice stone. It helps to remove dead and dry skin.
If your heels are very dry and cracked, use a good foot cream which will soften the skin around your feet. Kaya’s Foot Care Cream is specially formulated to gently heal rough and cracked feet. It is also recommended for foot softening, treating corns, calluses and thick skin around the elbows and knees. To know more visit: http://shop.kayaclinic.com/shop-online/foot-care-cream
Wash your feet
Make it a point to wash between your toes regularly with a clean washcloth. Be sure to dry your feet completely, including between the toes. This wash and dry routine reduces complications such as athlete's foot, odour, bacteria and fungus.
Change your shoes
Replace your shoes you wear each day. That means you need to have two pairs of your favourite shoes, which gives your shoes the required time to air thereby preventing foot odour or infections. Also it is advisable to change socks or stockings more than once in a day.
Yes… even feet need to be protected from the harsh rays of the Sun. Even on gloomy days they require the much needed protection. Apply sunscreen on the top part of your feet. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 to your feet when you are wearing open sandals. Kaya’s Sweat Proof Sunscreen SPF30+ is water and sweat resistant delivering up to 8 hour broad spectrum protection against harmful UV-A and UV-B rays.

Take care of your toenails
Most of us love getting pedicures, but the technique matters. Improper clipping can lead to hangnails and ingrown toenails. Also, ensure the nail expert smoothly pushes back the cuticle rather than removes it, as accidental pinching of cuticles may lead to severe infections and even unbearable injuries. If you do your pedicure, look for a nail cutter that has a curved handle and a cutting jaw that is shaped to follow the natural curve of nails.
Just follow the above outlined foot care tips and we are sure you will be blessed with happy feet this monsoon.
