We brush our teeth and hair and wash our face, but our feet are most often neglected for the foundation of our body. Even though our feet are usually hidden and enclosed in shoes, they play a vital role in our well-being. Maintaining a healthy diet and simple foot care routine can improve a person’s life by enabling them to continue functioning in a lively matter. Below you will find podiatrist-recommended foot care routines for each day and each week (when you have a little extra time).
Once a week, treat yourself to an at-home foot soak! Epsom salt is known to detoxify and soften the skin. The acid from the lemon juice helps to remove dead skin. Plus, it smells amazing!
1 Lemon (Juice and Peel)
2 tablespoons (White or Apple Cider) Vinegar
3 cups Epsom Salt
