Did you know that the feet can also have an impact on the general health? Therefore, keeping well-groomed feet isn’t just important for aesthetic reasons, but also for health. Unfortunately, since many people are not aware of the connection between feet and health, they are usually neglected.
On the other hand, those who want to take proper care of their feet usually spend a fortune on pedicures and other feet products. However, these products might not be as effective as they should be.
Why are Feet Susceptible to Damage?
Cracked heels, calluses, and rough feet can be caused by lack of protection, improper care, sun exposure, and rough surfaces. These are all common occurrences because the skin on the feet is naturally dry, which is not the case with the skin on the other body parts. This means that there are no oil glands in the feet, but only sweat glands. Therefore, the feet may dry out very quickly which makes them more susceptible to damage.
Fortunately, there is a perfect homemade solution to this issue. A natural pedicure treatment made from ingredients that you probably have at home. Here’s what you need and how to prepare it:
Natural Pedicure Treatment
- 4 cups of milk
- 3 tablespoons of baking powder
The method of preparation is quite simple. All you need to do is to heat up the milk and pour it into a basin and add the baking powder. Then, stir well until the mixture becomes homogeneous. However, you should make sure that the mixture isn’t too hot, but warm.
Next, put your feet into the basin and soak them for 10 minutes and relax. After the time has passed, rinse your feet using warm water. Then, dry them by patting with a towel.
For best results, repeat this treatment on a daily basis until your feet become smooth and soft. Afterward, you can do this once or twice a week.
