Our feet often suffer severely. Every day we take many steps with them, we walk on towering heels or we squeeze them into too small, tight shoes. For that reason alone, they deserve good care.
With these tips you will keep your feet in good condition !
Your feet are your 'third kidney'. Many toxins that your kidneys can not excrete can leave your body through the feet. This is due to the difference in PH value. Many toxins are also excreted via the skin in the shape of rashes, red spots or acne.
To relieve the skin and help your body to excrete waste products through the feet, you can regularly take a foot bath with Dead Sea Salt. This also helps with feet problems like athlete's foot, perspiring feet, swollen and/or cold feet. In addition, it helps against many forms of skin rash and bladder and kidney problems. It can also support detoxification and weight loss treatments.
For a foot bath, use half a cup of Dead Sea Salt. You can crush the salt with a mortar so that it can be absorbed more easily by water. You then dissolve it in hot water and add lukewarm water until your preferred temperature has been reached. Let your feet soak for half an hour and let them dry in open air.
Tip: drink a glass of water both during and after the foot bath.
Prevent calluses and gaps:
Scrub your heels 1-2 times a week to remove excess skin cells. Remove excess calluses after each shower (then your skin is soft) with a pumice or lava rock. Massage your feet daily with a moisturizing foot cream. Do not forget your cuticles and the space between the toes ! Make sure the cream is well absorbed before you put on socks.
Prevent ingrown toenails:
Always cut your toenails straight and file them.
