Healthy Feet and Nails: A Self-Care Routine

So whether you aspire to achieve irresistibly smooth, touchable feet or to cultivate nails that radiate health and purity, we've got some rejuvenation tips here for you. 

So keep on reading to unlock the secrets of nurturing smooth, contented feet and nails that mirror pristine elegance and well-being!

Consider a Foot Soak

A foot soak is a relaxing and rejuvenating practice and is a perfect way of starting your self-care routine that can significantly contribute to achieving soft and smooth feet. Start by filling a basin with warm water and add a few drops of essential oil, any oil would do. Now dip in your feet for a blissful experience. You’ll feel the warm water relieve muscle pain as well as help to hydrate the skin and soften the dry patches, making it easier to remove dead skin cells. Moreover, the warm water in a foot soak can stimulate blood flow in your feet. Improved circulation helps deliver oxygen and nutrients to the skin and promotes overall skin health. Lastly, foot soaks are relaxing and are perfect for your tired feet after a long day at work or school, they provide a moment of self-care and stress relief. Lower stress levels can indirectly contribute to healthier skin.


Exfoliate weekly

When dead skin begins to build up on your feet, it’s common to suffer from painful calluses. Additionally, because dead skin clogs the pores on your feet, it’s increasingly likely that your feet could become infected. Using an exfoliating foot peel or some other method of foot exfoliation helps to protect your feet from these health complications. Exfoliating also creates a clean canvas by removing the dead skin which will allow your moisturizing creams or lotion to penetrate deeper into the skin and do their work. 


Hydrate Daily

Moisturize your feet daily to keep them hydrated. Apply a rich foot cream, especially after showering while your skin is still damp. Look for a cream containing hydrating ingredients like shea butter, jojoba oil, beeswax, or lanolin. Massage the cream into your feet, paying extra attention to your heels and any cracked areas. The Leovard Multicream is an all-over body lotion and it can be a great pick for soft, smooth and hydrated feet.


Foot massage

Foot massages significantly improve blood circulation in the feet. This heightened circulation ensures that oxygen and essential nutrients reach the cells, aiding in cell repair and overall foot health. Furthermore, increased blood flow can reduce swelling and inflammation, which are common issues in the feet, particularly after long periods of standing or strenuous physical activity.

Regular foot massages can also help to maintain the flexibility of the foot muscles and joints. This is particularly important for maintaining proper gait and preventing conditions such as plantar fasciitis or Achilles tendonitis.

Beyond pain relief and physical benefits, foot massages can also contribute to mental well-being. Stress and tension often manifest physically, affecting the feet. Foot massages can help address these issues, promoting relaxation and reducing stress levels. 

For a soothing foot massage, consider using Leovard’s Oil Fusion. This unique blend combines the nourishing qualities of coconut oil, avocado oil, sunflower oil and other beneficial oils. These ingredients work in harmony to deeply hydrate and moisturize your skin, leaving it felling revitalized. 


Pay Attention to Nail Care

Proper nail care is essential for maintaining the health and hygiene of your feet. Neglecting your nails can lead to discomfort, infections, and other issues, so prioritizing foot care is essential. Following are a few points to bear in mind:

  • Use a nail oil To maintain nail health, moisturize both your nails and cuticles regularly. This helps prevent brittle nails and dry, peeling cuticles. Keeping them hydrated promotes overall nail strength and flexibility. The Leovard Oil Fusion is a multipurpose oil and is a blend of eleven hydrating and nourishing oils, lending them strength and vitality. 
  • Use a nail brush Regularly clean your nails and the skin surrounding them to prevent the accumulation of dirt, bacteria, and fungi. A nail brush is a handy tool for cleaning under the nails and removing dead skin. Gently brush around and under the nails to eliminate debris, and then rinse your feet with water to remove any remaining dead skin.
  • Trim as needed Trim your nails on a weekly basis to keep them clean and prevent ingrown nails. Use clean, sharp nail clippers and trim them straight across. Avoid cutting them too short or rounding the edges, as this can increase the risk of ingrown nails. Make sure to kick the nail-biting habit if you have it, as it can be damaging to your nails and lead to infections. If you find it challenging to quit this habit, consider using a bitter-tasting nail polish to discourage nail biting.

The Leovard Nail Care Kit stands out as an excellent option for comprehensive nail care. It encompasses all the essential tools, from nail cutters to cuticle pushers. Notably, it's constructed from stainless steel, allowing for easy sterilization whenever hygiene is a concern. Furthermore, the kit is elegantly encased in high-quality leather, making it effortlessly portable and a convenient addition to your purse or travel bag.

So there you have it, it’s everything you need to take care of your feet and nails! Give them the attention they deserve for a healthier, happier you.
