What Methods Can Be Used for Foot Cleaning?

Foot care starts with foot cleaning. However, foot cleaning is not just washing the feet. Foot cleaning is also the stage of preparing the feet for care. At this point, then ÔÇťHow to clean feet?ÔÇŁ You may ask. For this, you must keep your feet in hot water after washing them.

Your feet, waiting in hot water, are both completely free of dirt and become soft and ready for care. The water you prepare for your feet also softens the nails and cuticles, making it easier to do a pedicure, which is one of the stages of foot care.

How To Take Toe Nail Care?

Toenail care is one of the most important and important stages of foot care. When doing toenail care at home, you should pay particular attention to nail cutting. Nail cutting, which is often overlooked, can cause problems such as ingrown if not performed correctly. To avoid such a problem, we recommend cutting your toenails straight.

After cutting, you can smooth the rough parts of your nails with the help of a nail file. Then you can push back the softened cuticles and cut the excess. However, in order to avoid a negative situation, you should be careful not to cut the cuticles too deeply.

One of the things you should pay attention to is the tools you use during nail care. We recommend you to use pedicure tools specially produced for toenails in order to perform both hygiene and proper care.


How to Care for Worn Feet?

Feet are prone to dryness as they stay in shoes all day long. The feet, which dry out due to moisture loss, thicken over time and begin to crack. The way to prevent this condition, which causes a worn-out foot appearance, is to do regular foot care.

It is necessary to use especially intense moisturizers for the care of worn feet. In addition to moisturizing creams, you can choose moisturizing foot masks to prevent or reduce wear.

Apart from moisturizing, removing dead skin cells from the feet is also among the things to be done for worn foot care. For this, you can use the Alfheim Exfoliating Coffee Body Scrub exfoliating product enriched with ground coffee beans, hemp seeds, orange peel, melon seeds, grape seed oils and vitamin E. By applying the product with circular movements to your feet as well as your whole body, you can get rid of dead skin and moisturize your skin at the same time.


How to Soften Hard Heels?

In order to soften hard heels, the primary product you should use while cleaning heel at home is peeling creams. However, just peeling may not be enough, as heel hardening occurs quite thickly. In addition to the peeling product, we recommend using a pumice stone or heel file.


How to Remove Yellowing of Shoe Soles?
