Tricks to Take Care of Your Feet

Having perfect feet, free of corns, hardness and cracked heels is not only exclusive to those who have the time and money to perform frequent pedicures. You can also shine pretty feet by following these inexpensive tricks:

Hot foot bath

Try and have a foot bath at least once a week. Immerse them in hot water with coarse salt for at least half an hour. It is not a great effort since we can do it while we are watching TV, reading a book or just simply relaxing. This simple treatment make for much more rested and calmed feet.

Foot bath with hot and cold water

To complement the previous foot bath, it is good every week or every 15 days to make a little hot bath for a few minutes and then alternate it with a bath of cold water. This operation should be performed three or four times. What is the use of doing this? Bath alternating hot and cold water improves circulation of the feet.

Shoe Insoles

Shoe insoles are the within the shoe ‘floor’ and runs underneath and aids in the support of the base of the foot. Insoles are sometimes also known as foot-beds and inner soles. Shoe insoles are usually easily removed and can be very effective in making a variety of foot pains more bearable.


This is an indispensable element of foot care. This volcanic rock of low density and high porosity, which can be found in supermarkets or outlets of cosmetics and skin care, is essential to get perfect feet. Once a week, after the shower or hot foot bath, scrape with this stone those points of the feet where corns or calluses usually form (heels, areas of friction, etc).

Metatarsal Pads

Metatarsal pads help to extend the transverse arch (which is found behind the ball of your foot), encourage the reappearance of your over-extended toes to their usual anatomical position, and boost the return of your forefoot fat pad to its correct location. Metatarsal Pads can aid conditions like arthritis and sesamoiditis.


Massaging your feet every night with a moisturiser or aromatic oils prevents calluses and provides relaxation. Massage can be performed with both hands and circular movements contributing a little pressure on the feet.

Rolling a ball under our feet

This exercise, so simple, is a technique of massage that is highly recommended. It also improves the circulation of the area.

Exfoliate feet

This trick is for both the feet and the rest of the body. It not only moisturises but also helps remove dead cells due to the friction.

So whether it is a foot bath, a shoe insole, metatarsal pad or pumice, all these little things that do not involve much time or money can help your feet become free from hardness and pain.

Help with Bunions

A bunion (hallux valgus) is a deformity in the joint of the base of the big toe. This protrusion, which causes the big toe to be tilted to the second toe, often causes chafing with shoes, resulting in reddening of the area, thickening of the skin and inflammation, which can be very painful.

If we do not do anything to avoid (such as using gel heel cups) them bunions are not only painful, they can also disfigure the foot, which for a long period of time could eventually interfere with the foot and our way of walking.

Causes of bunions

The development of a bunion can be the result of a hereditary tendency, since people with flat feet are more prone to bunions than other people. However the main cause of bunions are shoes (with a lack of gel based foot products), especially those with high heels and narrow tips without space for the fingers, this being why women are much more prone to bunions than men.

If we do not do anything to avoid them bunions are not only painful, they can also disfigure the foot, which for a long period of time could eventually interfere with the foot and our way of walking.

Treatments and remedies for bunions

Change shoes. If you think you is dating a bunion main thing is to switch to low - gel heeled shoes, ample toe room, and a suitable tip, so that the big toe is not forced against the second finger foot. Also avoid shoes or socks that put pressure on the big toe joint. If possible, consider using sandals or other open shoes.

Using a bunion support or gel heel cup to protect the big toe (or small) shoes and correct its position.

Pamper your feet. Soak your feet in warm water can be a great relief. A gentle massage can also help. Use toe separators. Keep your fingers apart cushions rubbing toes, which provides relief for sore bunions.

Use special templates. The templates tailored to improve bunion support and foot biomechanics are also good to correct and alleviate bunions.
