The feet and the hands can tell one’s age just as much, if not more, than the face. These extremities are hard working ones that have many demands on them from each individual. The hands often get older looking due to the overuse of detergents and the like, as well as exposure to the sun. The feet on the other hand need constant care for the heavy load they carry, and we must respect them for that. As we age, they start to show their age so women who want to look their best have to do so from head to toe, learning how to get younger looking feet and get rid of cracks in the heel.
Besides caring for the nails and polishing them, it is crucial to soak the feet regularly at least once weekly, although every day is recommended. It helps to revive them and encourage better circulation, so make it a part of your daily routine. Use lukewarm water and oatmeal to soften the skin, relieve itchiness and give them an overall better feeling.
Use a scraper like a natural pumice stone or a special file that can be purchased just about anywhere. Gentle scraping each day is good practice, being careful not to overdo it. Then, dry them with a towel. While damp, apply a drop or two of olive oil, especially on the heel. Allow the olive oil to penetrate the skin for a few minutes.
With a paper towel, wipe off any excess oil and be exceptionally careful when walking. Even better, put on a pair of socks to keep you safe and sleep with them on to get an even better hydration. A few days of this foot care treatment will rejuvenate old tired feet and get them looking younger, bringing the plumpness of youthful feet that are rounded on the bottom rather than flat, which is common in older individuals.
