Oh, what a life our poor feet live! They are crammed into suffocating shoes, while they carry the weight of the world. And in the hotter months of the year, we expose our feet to the scorching pavement, resulting in sore and cracked heels. Oh, how hard it sometimes seems to indulge in some easy foot care.
But it isn’t all bad news!
We all know how amazingly refreshed our feet feel after a pedicure. Soaking in a foot bath, scrubbing away the daily grind, and soothing cracked heels might just be at the top of the list named ‘Life’s Little Luxuries’. Luckily, these are luxuries we can have at home.
Caring for Your Heels
Cracked heels can be more than just an aesthetic issue – for some of us, they cause pain and discomfort. The best way to treat (and prevent!) cracked heels is by making sure your skin is well moisturised, making it soft and less prone to cracking.
- Soak the day away ~ whether it’s a five-minute dip or a long, luxurious treatment, soaking your feet in a salt bath will do wonders. Our 100% natural Minty Foot Scrub is a blend of Epsom salts, Himalayan salts, and essential oils. One teaspoon of the scrub added to a bath of warm water will help to soften the skin on your heels.
- Scrub some life back into them ~ after soaking your feet for about 10 minutes, they will be ready for a scrub. With a small amount of Minty Foot Scrub, rub in a circular motion over the entire foot. Concentrate on any hardened areas but be gentle around cracks. The scrub will remove dead skin and encourage circulation to your feet. When you’re done, soak your feet in the bath again, then pat dry with a towel.
- Balm it up ~ our Minty Foot Balm delivers an all-natural hit of moisture and is exactly what your heels need to prevent cracking. It is the perfect way to finish off your at-home foot spa and leave you with a fresh, minty tingle. Made with nourishing mango butter, beeswax, and vitamin E oil, you only need to wear a small amount to see a big difference in the life of your feet.
Our Minty Foot range is New Zealand made and packed full of natural ingredients. Giving your feet the love they deserve and some easy foot care couldn’t be more enjoyable! (See also: Benefits and Steps for an Easy DIY Pedicure)
