How to Pamper your Feet in 5 Easy Steps - Amphora Aromatics

I love walking around barefoot during the summer. Nothing beats the feelings of grass or sand between your toes. However, all this barefoot activity can wreak havoc on our feet. Here are my top tips for keeping your toes in tip top condition:

  1. Soak your feet in Epson salts. Epson salts may reduce swelling, improve blood flow and have anti-fungal properties. If you have a foot spa, great. If not, just a washing up bowl with warm water works just as well.
  2. After your feet have soaked for a while, the skin will be much softer which is a great time to exfoliate them gently with a pumice stone. Work on the balls and heels of your feet.
  3. Pat dry your feet. Again, due to the softening of your feet, this is the best time to cut your toenails and if you want, pain them.
  4. Apply Amphora Aromatics Fresh Feet Massage Oil. Or even better, get someone to massage it in for you. With a fresh smell and an almond oil base, not only is this massage oil incredibly moisturising but the tea-tree oil makes it ianti-bacterial and smell so fresh! I have tried this out on a few clients after reflexology and so far everyone has complimented the aroma. You don't need to be a massage therapist to use it, just rub it in to your feet and lower legs. The peppermint is also nice and cooling so great when you've been busy on your feet all day. It is really easy to apply and gives a good glide so your hands won't tire.
  5. After this, pop on some cotton socks to help the oil absorb. Now is the great time to put on a new pair of fluffy socks for that extra pamper feeling.

Your feet will thank you for following these steps and you'll be left with healthy looking, happy feet for the rest of summer.

If you have a bit more time to spare, you could even incorporate this as part of a DIY home spa day, and let's face it, we all love a pamper day.

Do you look after your feet? How do you like to relax and pamper yourself?
