  1. Our feet aren’t always a part of the body that gets a lot of focus. However, it’s the part of our body that keeps us upright and moving. It’s necessary to look after all parts of your body both in physicality and mentally, feet included. So with that being said, here are four ways to care for your feet.

    Give Them A Massage

    Your feet build up some muscle because they’re always active other than when you’re sitting or lying down. So if you end up standing for long periods of time, your feet may start to feel achy or sore. With that in mind, giving your feet a little massage once a day can certainly help to give your feet the care and attention it deserves.

    This could be done whilst in the shower or bath where you’ve got water to soften your feet. Otherwise, you may find it handy to get some body oils so that you can give yourself a more luxurious experience perhaps when having a pamper day or evening.

    Get A Spa Pedicure

    Spa pedicures are definitely a treat for the feet but they’re not always a treatment that people tend to have on a regular basis. A spa pedicure will usually involve submerging your feet into a lovely relaxing foot bath and then using a variety of tools to scrub and scrape your feet until they’re baby soft. The soft feet feel might not last long as your feet start to build up that hard skin quite quickly but it can be a treat every now and then to give your feet some love.

    If you are in need of some pampering or haven't got much time or energy for self care check out my pedicures and feet treats!

    Use Heel Balm

    Heel balms are something that many would consider to be useful for helping with your foot health. It’s interesting that your feet can be an integral part of your health and so it’s good to get products that will help keep them in tip top shape. There are lots of heel balm products on the market, so make sure you do your research so that you can find the right one that works for your feet.

    It’s a small pric to pay in order to keep your feet looking and feeling good.

    Let Them Breathe

    And finally, it’s important to let your feet breathe. It’s very easy to get foot infections like athlete’s foot from not giving your feet the chance to breathe or not cleaning them properly enough. Try to find footwear that can help keep your feet’s skin exposed and open to the elements. It can be helpful to do this so that the air is getting to your feet and there’s therefore less opportunity for them to start smelling!

    Your feet are more important to you than you might think so where you can, make sure you’re looking after them so that they end up looking after you and the rest of your body too.

    Until next time

  2. If you want to accentuate your natural beauty then it could be worth kicking some of your bad habits. Here are some of the issues that you need to be aware of.

    Your Coffee Addiction 

    If you rely on coffee to give you the energy to get through the day, or at least start the morning, then you’re not alone. A lot of people are completely dependent on coffee as part of their morning or daily routine. However, this can definitely have an impact on your natural beauty. The problem with coffee is that it over stimulates your nervous system and it also stains your teeth and these stains aren’t easy to remove even with high quality toothpaste. As such, you should make sure that you do avoid it if you can. If you can’t then a general dentist could provide the teeth whitening treatment you need. You can also explore natural remedies to whiten your teeth including mixing lemon juice with baking soda to form a paste. 

    Sugary Sweets 

    You might think that the worst impact of sugary sweets is going to be on your waistline. However, it's also worth noting that sugar can play havoc with your skin. Consuming too much refined sugar is known to break down collagen and elastin fibres which ages your skin . If you are worried about this, then you should explore how you can start cutting refined sugar out of your diet. You might also want to try drinking more water. Research shows that water can act as a natural detox so it’s great if you can start the day off with a large glass of warm water with lemon and sip on water or herbal teas throughout the day.

    Habitual Stress 

    Have you heard of habitual stress? This is where stress in your life becomes a habit that you can’t break free from. In fact, some people find the feeling of stress to be incredibly addictive and as such tend to end up seeking it out rather than ignoring it or skirting around it. This can be a problem because stress can have various negative impacts on your body. Some research has correlated stress with certain forms of cancer. In terms of physical changes to the body, stress can make you bloat or even lead to you losing your hair before you hit thirty. In order to counteract stress, find activities which help you to relax, this could include meditation, exercise such as walking in nature or yoga and getting a regular massage.

    Those Late Nights 

    Finally, you need to make sure that you are not staying up all night, every night. Sleep is the way that your body refuels and recharges. Without the right level of sleep each night, your body is always going to be under a lot more stress and this is going to eventually start to show through physical signs such as deep bags under eyes. You might wake up in the morning looking absolutely exhausted. There are numerous ways to get a better night's sleep by establishing a calming bedtime routine, switching off all electronic devices, taking a relaxing aromatherapy bath, listening to soothing music, using a night time pillow spray, drinking Chamomile tea and so on,

    We hope this helps you understand some of the key unhealthy habits that can impact your natural beauty. To maintain good health and radiant outer beauty make sure to eat a balanced, nutrient dense diet, drink plenty of water or herbal teas, engage in activities that reduce your stress levels and get a good 8 hrs sleep each night,

    Until next time
