Feet First

Feet First

With the welcome arrival of warmer temperatures and milder weather comes the temptation to get the legs out and flipflops on.
So now is a great time to show your tootsies some love and pamper those pins. The simple act of remembering to use your body exfoliator twice a week on your legs and feet , whilst focusing on the heels as well as the soles , can make quite the difference to the feel and look of your skin. We tend to spend autumn and winter in rather fabulous yet toecrushing footwear so when they appear from hibernation , they are going to need all the love they can get! If you’ve never tried reflexology before, then I would seriously give it a go. The power of massage on the feet as well as the rest of the body can significantly reduce the stress that our body holds onto but also Reflexologists believe that your feet provide a sort of map of your body with certain areas on the feet ,linked to other parts of the body. It certainly works for me so if you’re interested ,look out for reputable clinics that have a reflexologist practitioner. For those of you that like to see a bit of colour on your toes then check out French brand, Kure Bazaar who have a huge selection of nail varnishes in a 12 Free eco-natural formula but also in a stunning array of shades. If you’re looking for a peachy nude then try Lychee. Or if vivid Pink is your thing then try Fabulous or you want a subtle pink , then Macaron your shade. Plus, they have matching lip colours too! I have selected three products to help you on your quest to put your best feet forward!

Body Conditioning Serum- Ark Skincare, £35, 150ml

A cocktail of conditioning oils including Olive , Abyssinian, Sweet Almond and Sacha Anchi combine with other actives to give a silky feel to the legs. The formula is rich in Omeras 3,6 & 9 plus vitamin E , whilst the essential oils blend of Rose, Jasmine , Patchouli and Orange Flower give a subtle sweet yet floral scent to the skin upon application.

The Pedicure Set- Kure Bazaar , £6,

This is such an innovative and soothing at home experience. The sachet contains two foot gloves which are infused with ultra-nourishing Organic Shea Butter, Jojoba, Sea Buckthorn and Vitamin E, plus you get a nail file to shape and file your nails for a professional finish. So pop them on and get your feet up whilst the hardworking ingredients do their magic to help you get softer feet and nourished cuticles.

Deodorising Prebiotic Foot Cream- Green People, £16, 50ml, 

The cooling and calming foot cream is perfect for anyone, especially for very active people and gym goer. The 3-way deodorising action helps to neutralise foot odours by using a prebiotic to help promote friendly bacteria whilst zinc rincinoleate absorbs odour molecules like a sponge and natural occurring potassium alum helps to prevent odour causing bacteria from multiplying. Perhaps a much needed present for your teenage children? If they won’t thank you then I’m sure you the rest of the household will.
