Wrinkled feet are part and parcel of the signs of aging and should be part of your anti-aging program although sometimes it is easy to forget about them! We will focus our attention on our face, our hands, even our arms and legs but will all but forget that our feet require proper skin care as well.
Of course pedicures are great for your feet and will help to make them look and feel lot better but are you aware that you can do things at home as part of your skin care routine to ensure that the skin on your feet looks beautiful is healthy as well? Considering that our feet carry our weight all day and transport us from one place to another they deserve a little pampering. Besides, when summer comes around you want the peace of mind that comes from knowing you can wear all those lovely cool summer sandals and your feet will look beautiful in them!
A great way to revitalize tired feet is to soak them especially when you have been on all your feet all day. There is nothing like the feeling of soaking your feet and relieving the achy feeling as they relax. But aside from the good feeling that comes from soaking your feet you will also be able to focus some attention on the calloused and hard skin that many of us suffer with. There are great products on the market for soaking feet but you can even make your own foot soak at home. You will find the Internet is a great resource when looking for easy at home recipes for foot soaks. For example you could add a drop of peppermint essential oil to the water. It will help with circulation and also has some anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties.
Another wonderful way of revitalizing tired feet is to give them a foot massage. Make your own massage oil by simply mixing 10ml of sweet almond oil, 5 drops of lemongrass essential oil, and 2 drops of lavender essential oil. You can store this away in a dark bottle and use it whenever you feel the need to pamper your feet.
As we age we start noticing wrinkles appearing where there weren’t any and that includes on our feet. If you are wondering what you can do for your wrinkled feet rest assured that there are measures you can take. A very effective course of action is to exfoliate them. Make sure that you do the exfoliation after you have soaked your feet as this is when the dry, hard, and calloused skin will be softer. Again there are products you can purchase for this purpose such as pumice stones or you can make your own at home exfoliating rub. Exfoliation is a great way to keep the skin on your feet looking and feeling better.
Keeping your feet moisturized is as important as keeping the skin on your face moisturized if you want to combat aging. When the skin is deprived of moisture it becomes dry and susceptible to wrinkles. You will find many feet moisturizing products on the market but take care to choose one that is natural and not chemically based. A really great tip to get the most out of your moisturizer is to apply the cream to the feet and then wear a pair of socks when you go to bed. You will be amazed at the wonderful results in the morning!
When you take care of your feet properly wrinkled feet will not be a problem for you. As with the rest of your body proper skin care is essential if you want your feet to look and be beautiful! Some body lotions are meant for use all over the body including on the feet and when you choose one that is 100% natural you know that you are providing the best anti-aging treatment around.
