Happy Feet: Foot Care Tips


Foot Care Tips To Keep Your Feet Happy

Our feet deserve a gold medal! Feet are tough, hard-working, and operate as the constant point of connection between us and the world. Going for a run later? Spare a thought for the pressure put onto your feet with every stride. This alone should be enough strain for our feet to suffer, but they also put up with everything from bacterial and fungal infections, cracked heels, dry skin, to a whole range of issues related to toenails and poor shoe choices.

With all the support that feet provide us, it is important to treat them with a little love and respect. Proper foot care should not be neglected. Problems with the feet can reflect or lead to problems in other parts of the body. Feet are naturally dry, and are prone to problems like cracked heels, dry flaky skin, peeling skin – especially during winter. As feet lack the natural oil glands that the rest of our skin has, sweat is needed to provide moisture to our feet. This is harder for the skin to regulate, and if you’re strutting your stuff in a pair of poorly ventilated sneakers or office shoes then you’re facing another range of feet problems. These include: athlete’s foot, fungal infection, and bad odour!

Botáni has put together a beautiful selection of products to help you keep everything between your toes and your ankles beautiful and happy. Regular use of feet moisturisers and exfoliating products are the first steps we recommend towards healthy feet.

At Botáni, we believe in a simple 3 step Cleanse, Treat, Hydrate treatment for effective skin care. Here are some of our foot care tips for using the Botáni products:

Make sure your feet are thoroughly clean. Both the Botáni Eco-Clear Body Bar and PhytoBody Wash have antibacterial properties, so you can be sure that your feet are really clean.

  • Exfoliate with Spirulina Foot Scrub to help remove impurities that accumulate on the feet and under the skin.

Say goodbye to scaly, lifeless and dry feet skin and hello to happy, nourished feet! Our Spirulina Foot Scrub contains antibacterial properties, which are useful in fighting foot issues.

While your feet are still wet, place a small amount of granules in the palm of your hand and proceed to massage in circular motions on the soles for at least 2 minutes. Rinse granules away with warm water.

  • Treat skin irritations or fungal infections with Phytoseptic to kill fungus and bacteria.

Thoroughly dry your feet before applying the Phytoseptic to any infections. Use Phytoseptic twice daily for as long as required.

  • Hydrate, heal and nourish your feet with Olivéne Balm.

Massage Olivéne Balm in to nourish and soften the skin. Massaging will have all-over benefits as the reflexology points are stimulated.

Regular foot treatments will keep your feet smooth, soft and healthy.
