Why is Foot Care Important?

Why is Foot Care Important?

In our day to day life, our feet go through a lot. With every step we take, we put pressure on every bone, muscle, tendon and ligament that exists in our feet. Quite literally, our feet carry our entire burden. Despite that, our feet are the most ignored body parts. Research suggests that the overall health of the body is affected when our feet are taken for granted. But this can be easily avoided by taking proper care of your feet. 

Our feet’s health is an indicator of our overall health and it extends beyond appearances. But, by the time we realize, it gets late. Feet care is a year-round effort. In fact, a good feet care regime is essential and should be a part of our overall health and wellness routine. 

If you are clueless about what can be done to keep your feet happy, we have some suggestions. Read on to find out. 

Use shoes that fit 

Shoes are made to protect your feet from getting hurt. But, wearing the wrong size will aggravate the problem rather than solving it. Shoes that are too tight often lead to distortion in the shape of your feet, further resulting in painful foot growths or blisters. The same applies to heels and unsupportive flat shoes or any kind of footwear that is not even remotely comfortable. 

Clean your feet daily 

An important part of good feet hygiene is to clean them on a daily basis. But, it is not limited to washing your feet under the shower. Obviously, it ain’t enough! Your feet need gentle and thorough cleaning… washing between each toe using soap and water, and then drying them separately to prevent feet related bacteria or fungus and even to wipe off the odour. 

You can also give your feet a little pampering. All you have to do is add essential oil (whichever you prefer) and put it in a bucket of warm, soapy water before soaking your feet inside.   

Nourish them with Alyuva’s Natural Foot Cream

Like your face, lips and body, your feet too need daily nourishment to stay healthy. And, as said above, a proper foot care regime is essential for overall health and wellness. So, give your feet the nourishment they need with Alyuva Natural Foot Cream. The cream is formulated using a nourishing formula enriched with Coconut oil, Kokum Butter and Aloe Vera Gel. The use of this nourishing formula along with Shata Dhuata Ghrita enables the Natural Foot Cream to penetrate deep into the skin and helps soothe your dry and callous skin. The rejuvenating blend of Camphor Oil, Eucalyptus Oil and Black Pepper Oil de-stresses tired fatigued feet, preparing them for another day’s hard work.

Alyuva’s Natural Foot Cream is ideal for soothing calloused heels and chapped feet skin. Over time, this cream will prevent your feet skin from getting cracked, protecting them from certain infections. 

Don’t walk barefoot, at least in public 

Going barefoot in public places such as swimming pools, gym locker rooms and showers can increase the risk of your feet getting infected from fungus and bacteria. So, even though you are tempted to, put on the relevant footwear at such places. The same rule applies to your salon and spas as well. Make sure to check with the salon and spa officials if the tools and footbaths are cleaned frequently using antifungal solutions before booking your appointment.

Your feet are as important as your skin, lips or any other part of your body. They deserve equal love, care and attention. So, follow the above-listed tips and take care of your feet.
