How to Practice Foot Care at Home

There aren’t a lot of people who consider doing foot care at home, but it really is one of the ultimate forms of self-care. Our feet are one of the most overlooked and underappreciated areas, and it’s time to give them the attention they deserve. 

From carrying us through long, hard days to enduring strenuous hikes, our feet deserve some tender loving care. Learn how to take care of your feet to minimize pain, discomfort, and other foot-related issues: 

Always Clean

The easiest thing you can do for your feet right now is to clean them. Use warm water and mild soap to wash your feet thoroughly. It’s best to pay special attention to the area between your toes. Dry your feet completely after washing them, since moist environments can lead to fungal infections. 

Practicing foot care at home also means inspecting your feet for any cuts, blisters, or other abnormalities. Early detection can prevent a lot of potential foot issues from arising. 

Don’t Forget to Moisturize

The skin on your feet is like the rest of your skin, and it needs to be hydrated too. Applying a good-quality foot cream is essential for keeping your skin soft and supple. You should focus on areas that are prone to calluses, specifically your heels and sides of the feet, in addition to anywhere else you like. 

To ensure proper circulation, it’s best to do a foot massage while you are moisturizing. Proper foot care at home definitely includes a massage that can help your muscles relax. 

Take Foot Soaks

For optimal foot care, think about indulging yourself in the occasional foot soak. While this shouldn’t be your daily foot care routine, doing it once in a while can make you feel extra relaxed. To do this, fill a tub or basin with warm water, add Epsom salt, and a few drops of essential oils (lavender, peppermint, or citrus). 

Soak your feet for around 20 minutes to soften the skin. Gently exfoliate afterward using a pumice stone to remove dead skin cells. Follow up with a good foot moisturizer. 

Invest in Good-Quality Products

Wearing the right footwear and socks can go a long way in preventing foot problems. For example, toe-separating socks can minimize sweat, moisture, and odor from your feet. This will help in preventing fungal or hygiene problems. Prioritize shoes that provide proper arch support and cushioning and have enough room for your toes to move around. Ill-fitting shoes have the potential to cause bunions, corns, and calluses.
