Exfoliation is very important part of beauty regimen but then not many of us exfoliate our feet and we aren't talking about just scrubbing your feet. Here we are talking about de-tanning exfoliation which means rejuvenating the skin and making it as beautiful as ever. This one simple yet effective foot scrub will help you get rid of tanning and achieve skin rejuvenation.
Take two spoonfuls of granulated sugar, mix it in two spoons of olive oil. Now, scrub your feet with it. You can do it twice a week.
Do not soak them longer
You must not soak them for a long time. Soaking your feet for a long time can make them dry and will strip them off the natural oil from your feet. Keep in mind to soak only in warm water.
Use a pumice stone regularly
You must use a pumice stone regularly or on alternate days on your heel to scrub off callouses. A pumice stone helps to get rid of rough heels and dead skin. The only thing you should take care of is that you must not use it on the soft parts of the skin.
Do not wear shoes without socks
You must wear socks underneath your sneakers or any other enclosed shoes to avoid sweating. You can also put some talcum powder in the socks before putting them on.
Moisturise them well
This is the part that we mostly overlook. We do not moisturise our feet while moisturising is an important part of feet care. You must moisturise your feet using a good amount of the product - after washing your feet, before going to bed to have soft and supple feet. It depends if you wish to use an over the counter product or a homemade one.
Do not forget the sunscreen
When stepping out in the sun, do not forget to put on sunscreen. The ultraviolet rays produced by the sun can prove to be harmful for the skin including the feet and they can also cause tanning. So, it is better either to cover your feet or use a sunscreen lotion.
