Are you looking down and seeing beautifully shaped, painted, and designed fingernails? At the least, are you seeing clean and trimmed nails? The answer is likely to be yes. Because people see your fingernails you are more conscious of taking care of them.
But what about your feet? After all, it's only you who sees them. Is a different story when you look down at your toes?
If you love your feet but have no idea on how you can keep them healthy and looking their best, this article has easy to follow tips that won't take up too much of your bathroom time.
Wash Your Feet!
While it can seem like a common-sense tip to give, many people believe that washing their feet means soaping their body and then waiting for the soapy water to make its slow way down to their feet, thus providing them with a wash of equal quality.
While it makes a small amount of sense in theory, is isn't going to cut it in the realm of reality.
Each time that you bathe, take a few extra seconds (literally, just a few seconds) to run the bar of soap or body wash over your feet and toes to keep them clean and fresh. If you have a scrubbing brush, get one and use it for a few minutes during one shower per week.
Don't Hack at Your Feet!
It's easy to reach for a regular pair of scissors and just hack at your toenails until they are short enough to stop cutting into your socks or your scissors just can’t cut anymore.
Head to your local $2 store or beauty agent and pick yourself up a basic toe-nail cutting set. This is going to include a smaller set of scissors with purpose designed blades to prevent ingrown nails growing into your toe. The kit will also include a small cleaning tool to remove any stubborn grime.
Walk the Right Walk
If you are wearing shoes that squeeze in at the end and squash your toes together then you are only making the problem worse. Head to the Groupon Coupons page for Lord & Taylor and replace any of your restrictive shoes with shoes that allow your toes the space to wriggle.
If possible, wear open-toed shoes as much as possible, or even no shoes at all in the environment permits.
Take Them out for a Spin!
Now that you have healthy looking feet and toes, don’t be afraid to take them outdoors and dress them up. The same level of nail art that you expect on from your local nail salon when designing your fingernails is also available for your toes! Dress them up with a nice matching color to your fingernails, or even just keep them hidden with a discreet color that only you will see.
If you really think about it, your poor feet and toes are constantly being pushed to their limits keeping you walking and running around all day. Be sure that you take the time to give them the treatment they deserve!
