TREELOVA’S HANDMADE FOOT SOAK HEALING BENEFITS
Immersing your feet in a tub of warm water, with Treelova’s Handmade Foot Soak, is a nice way to relax after a long day. A foot soak soothes your muscles, hydrates your skin, and can relieve aches and pains due to standing for hours or walking in uncomfortable shoes. Plus, letting your feet sit in their own bath can help reduce swelling and prevent bacteria from settling into blisters and cuts or under toenails.
And while a little rough skin helps protect our feet, if you’re prone to developing thick calluses, softening them in a soak makes them easier to exfoliate – precisely the reason why most pedicures begin by submerging your feet into warm water.
There are some additions, however, that can enhance your healing foot soak. Consider these options when caring for your hard-working feet:
Light a few candles or incense, play your favourite tunes, enjoy a book and your favourite hot beverage, or multitask with another pampering treatment, such as a face mask, mini manicure, or hand massage.
- To take it a step further, exfoliate your feet to remove dead skin.
- While the skin around your toenails is soft, you can also take the time to take care of your toenails.
- If you’re up for it, get your whole body involved with a DIY body scrub.
