Even those of us who put a lot of time into our self-care routines can find it easy to forget about proper foot care. The feet are a part of our bodies that we don’t typically pay a lot of attention to when it comes to health and beauty, so it is easy to overlook them completely as we focus on other spa treatments and hygiene practices.
At Lotus 5 Senses Spa in Winston-Salem, however, we know that caring for your feet can be extremely beneficial to both your health and your overall beauty and confidence. One of the easiest ways to do it is with a foot scrub, a spa treatment that leaves your feet exfoliated, massaged, and moisturized. Keep reading if you want to learn more about what getting a foot scrub can do for the health and beauty of your feet.
It Can Actually Relieve Foot Pain
Having your feet scrubbed doesn’t just help make them soft and beautiful, it can actually help relieve a lot of pain you may be experiencing in that area. When the feet get scrubbed or receive a massage, blood flow is stimulated and blood rushes to the area quicker than it would typically. This rush of blood helps the body alleviate everyday foot pain and aching.
Additionally, we all know far too well how painful and uncomfortable dry feet can be. Cracks in the skin on our feet can make walking difficult and unpleasant, and the longer we allow it to continue, the more painful it eventually becomes. Having your feet scrubbed, however, softens the skin and makes it far less likely that it will crack and become painful.
It Makes Your Feet Baby Soft
We don’t usually think of feet as a soft or smooth area of the body. The skin on our feet dries out easily and becomes rough to the touch over time. Most of us ignore this fact and resign to living with the problem. This can cause embarrassment and discomfort if not addressed. It doesn’t have to be like this, though.
As your feet are being scrubbed during a spa treatment, the skin becomes soft and smooth for two reasons. Number one is that the scrub exfoliates rough dead skin from the feet, uncovering the fresh, smooth skin underneath. Number two is that the scrub has moisturizing ingredients in it, which soak into the foot skin during the scrub and bring it back to life.
It Removes Calluses from the Feet
Most of us will notice calluses appearing on our feet from time to time. The activities we do on a regular basis cause the calluses to form on their own, including wearing certain types of shoes, standing for long periods of time, or being physically active. Calluses form as a thick and hard layer of skin where a lot of friction has occurred. While they are common and completely normal, they can actually cause a lot of pain and embarrassment if left to continue growing.
By having your feet scrubbed regularly, however, you can get rid of calluses and prevent new ones from growing back. The exfoliating materials in the scrub help push all of the thick hardened skin away, uncovering the soft and smooth skin underneath. Although calluses can grow back over time, this can be avoided completely by scheduling foot scrubs on a more regular basis.
It Makes Your Feet Look Gorgeous
If you’re someone who enjoys pedicures, then you know that all the nail polish in the world won’t fix your confidence in your feet if you are still dealing with cracked skin, calluses, or flakiness. Luckily, foot scrubs deal with all of these issues at one time and leave your feet radiating with overall beauty.
With soft, smooth skin completely free from any blemishes, you will feel more confident wearing those strappy shoes and showing off your gorgeous feet. We all love to look and feel our best, and foot scrubs can help you ensure that you look gorgeous from head to toe.
