As you all know, walking around in heels all day, and standing in line at Disney World for hours and hours can do more than just tamper with your patience: have you thought about your feet in the long term?
Recent studies have shown that flat shoes are really not the best type of footwear we could go for since they will only put more pressure on our spine. And no, heels are not a good idea either! Usually, when you know that you’ll be gone for the whole day, try to wear one-inch wedges.
Second, don’t underestimate the power of plants! There’s nothing better than a salt and thyme bath after a long and exhausting day! This being said, there are other foot problems that can be treated with fruits, vegetables, and herbs:
How to tell when you are sweating too much? Well, if your socks are moist all the time, you know the answer. It doesn’t mean that your feet have to smell bad, but these two generally go hand in hand. If that is the case, you can try one of the following treatments:
- Orange and thyme mask – just chop ½ orange and a handful of fresh thyme using the blender and then use the resulting composition to massage your feet for 10 minutes. Repeat this procedure three times a week until you notice an important improvement.
- Lemon and peppermint leaves – proceed just like you did with the previous ingredients and soak your feet in this composition for 20 minutes. Not only that you will sweat less, but your feet will also smell great all the time.
Dry feet and wrinkled skin
Well, unfortunately, these problems can’t be avoided after a certain age, but they can be treated at least. Usually, people encountering these inconveniences go for oily treatments, like the following:
- Olive oil and tomato – don’t worry, your feet won’t turn red. Mix a ripe tomato with two tablespoons of olive oil and massage your feet with this composition twice a week.
- Castor oil and cucumber – just put a tablespoon of castor oil and half a cucumber in the blender and use the mixture as a feet mask. The castor oil will nourish the epithelial cells and the cucumber will make sure your feet stay hydrated throughout the day.
If soreness is your problem, don’t just wait to go away and try one of the following remedies:
- Lavender and sea salt – just soak your feet in hot water, add a handful of sea salt and a few lavender plants, and stay like this for as long as you want. Thanks to its comforting effects, lavender has been used since ancient ages as a sleep inducer, which means that it has the ability to bring relief from pain.
- Chamomile and lemon decoction – just boil a liter of water with a handful of chamomile flowers and a teaspoon of lemon zest and soak your feet in the resulting mixture. Repeat this every time you had a bad day and your feet hurt like never before.
