Get Your Feet in Tip Top Condition
I don't know about you , but I am one of those people who BOTHER.
By bother I mean , bother about my clothes and hair and make up.
I enjoy deciding what to wear.
I like buying new items.
I love getting a new colour on my hair - in fact I am not sure what colour my hair would be now if I left it alone - probably very grey.
I feel great when my skin is in good condition.
As you get older it takes longer doesn't it ....doesn't it?
I approach this a bit like housekeeping - a little and often .
Apart from my daily routine (more on this next week), which like the basics of housekeeping - the cooking, the washing up, the making beds etc has to be done every day , I do extras on a regular basis .
Each Saturday I will be doing a Beauty Housekeeping Task to keep on top of my skincare routines.
Join me if you wish! Or Laugh at my decadence!
This week I suggest Tackling your Feet for a mid season sort out.
- Soak your feet in a bowl of warm water with a drop of oil to soften.
- Rub away dry skin with a pumice stone or similar
- Use a natural based scrub on your feet to smooth and exfoliate
- Rinse in cool water and dry.
- Massage in some cream - I use Body Butter from The Body Shop, but only because I love it.
- Use a cuticle cream to tidy up cuticles and a file to shape your nails - remember to file in one direction only - I use the buffing square from Boots
- If required give your nails a couple of coats of nail polish to finish , using a base and a top coat to get it to last longer.
WARNING - FEET PICTURES COMING UP!
