Drench your feet for 15 to 20 minutes

We recommend the use of high-end vibrating foot tools, and there are some extraordinary ones available. The vast majority of these machines either vibrate or utilize warmth to help relieve throbbing feet.
In any case, you needn’t bother with a foot spa to douse and calm your feet adequately. Any bowl will work. Just follow these steps:

  • Gather every one of the items you’ll require to drench your feet. You’ll need items like towel, a foot scrub, Epsom salts, any essential oil, a bowl etc
  • Before soaking your feet, make sure they are properly washed.
  • Fill the bowl with warm water. You can include things like basic oils or Epsom salts to give you that spa-like experience.
  • Soak your feet for a few minutes, or leave it in until the water cools off.
  • Use a foot brush or a pumice stone to scrub your feet and get rid of dead skin
  • Dry your feet completely.

Only wear shoes that fit properly.

Foot issues regularly emerge from the shoes we wear. Shoes ought to never feel tight or cause uneasiness when putting them on. Shoes that are too tight can cause bunions and prompt ingrown toenails. Also, they prevent air currents from reaching your feet and toes, which can cause parasitic diseases and bad smell.
