Keep Your Feet Pretty


Pedicures in warm weather are the best and most convenient method to keep feet soft and beautiful but there are certain things you can do to keep your toes happy all year long.

Soak your feet in lukewarm water for 5 to 10 minutes and soften the feet.
Then use a pumice stone to remove dead skin.
Clip and file your toe nails straight across to avoid ingrown toe nails.
Moisturise your feet with a good lotion or foot cream and preferably sleep with loose cotton socks so that you can lock in the moisture.
You should do this at least once per week.
This will help repair damage caused by wearing open toe shoes all summer long.
Apply nail polish if you so desire.  This encourages healthy nail beds as well.

Tired feet need care so that they look soft and supple again.
After a long day wash and apply foot cream with a soothing massage.
The foot cream may be medicinal and it can help in healing the cracks, dryness and smooth out rough skin.
Tight shoes lead to corns and calluses.
To de-stress, a warm water soak or foot massage gets the blood moving and one will get a peaceful and a restful sleep.

Clay eye pad

As we are spending more and more of our time under artificial lightings and illuminations, television, computers and the like, our delicate eyes are constantly subjected to stress and strain.  

To give your eyes much needed rest, here’s a recipe for a clay eye-pad recommended by naturopaths. So try this out to relax and cool your eyes.

The clay eye pad:
Take clay of any colour (preferably black). It should be obtained from the surroundings of a pond or from a virgin ground, devoid of chemical fertilizers. If pure clay is commercially available, you could use that. Sift it and see to it that it is without grits.

Method:
Moisten clay with cold water and make round, flat and small lumps from it.
Put these lumps on your closed eyelids for about 10 minutes (not more than that).
Lie down and relax completely.
See to it that your mind is free of all worries and problems of the day.

We frequently rest our eyes during the day (especially when they are tired) by closing them for a moment.
This clay pad relaxation method brings about a fuller and a more conscious relaxation of the eyes and is an improvement on the natural and unconscious process of closing one’s eyes for relaxing.
Clay has the virtue of drawing out toxins and has a cooling effect on the eyes.

Eye mask to relieve puffiness

If you have a tendency of waking up with swollen, puffy eyes in the morning, then this is just right for your delicate eyes.

Application of these eye pads will surely help relieve puffiness.

It soothes and calms the under eye area and helps drain the lymphatic fluids that causes the puffiness.

Application:
Make eye pads using either black tea bags soaked in warm water or cotton puffs dipped in witch hazel or celery juice and relax for 10-15 minutes.
Apply a thin coating of moisturiser over your entire face.

GLYCERIN AND HONEY SUGAR SCRUB

Ingredients:
1 cup fine sugar
3 tsp liquid glycerine
1 tsp pure honey
3-5 drops of your favourite essential oil

Optional:
Pinch of lavender blossoms, chamomile, or dried herbs of your choice, (finely chopped)

Method:
Mix ingredients well and store in an airtight container.
Add more liquid ingredients if you prefer a thinner end-product.
Stir thoroughly before use.
This keeps very well, and in fact, the honey acts as preservative.
Use small amounts when scrubbing the nose, being careful not to irritate or get it in the eyes.
Scrub elbows, hands, knees, and feet.
Rinse in warm water, pat dry, and apply a moisturiser afterward.

We already have what we need…

I was reading Nicoles blog over at Modern Goddess Online and found a great post.

It talks about how the people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money, or the most awards. They are the ones that care. 

“Don’t worry about the world coming to an end today. It’s already tomorrow in Australia.” – Charles Schultz

Thanks Nicole. 🙂
