How to Soothe Aching Feet

The most abused body part is your feet. Most people rarely think about resting their feet during the day. You go to work and stand on your feet or maybe wear heels all day and at day's end your feet are tired, achy and maybe even a bit swollen. Special care must be taken to prevent such problems as cuts, sores, calluses and bunions. You must relax by taking time out to pamper your tired aching feet

1. Make a daily exam of your feet and toenails and choose socks that are not tight or too short. After having heels on the entire day, be sure to give the feet a break by switching to a pair of slippers or sandals.

2. Elevate your feet by lying on the floor and rest the feet on edge of a chair or lay on a bed resting the feet on the headboard. Doing this for ten to twenty minutes will help swollen, aching feet. It enables the trapped fluids to travel down your legs to the heart, causing the swelling to subside.

3 Treat your feet to a massage once a week. Get into comfortable, loose clothing and a comfy chair, supporting your back well. Make a mixture to rub into your feet gently, using two teaspoons olive oil and adding three drops of lavender oil. If you wish you can also add a drop of chamomile or geranium oil or both. After the ingredients are mixed, rub gently all over your feet. Now just rest awhile with your feet up. Wash the feet using a mild soap, rinse well, dry with a soft towel being careful to dry in between the toes.

4. Smooth and soften your dry and cracked skin. There are many good heel and foot care balms on the market that make your feet feel so soft and smooth. After using them a few times you will be amazed at how wonderful your feet feel when you retire for the night and on awakening you will find them much softer.
tendency to swell. Make your feet feel less tired by rolling them a cold drink can from the refrigerator. If the weather is hot, put your foot spray in the fridge and spritz it on to feel better after a long day at work.
