The skin of the heels becomes coarse under the influence of many factors: open shoes, constant mechanical friction and age-related changes in the body, which lead to a lack of collagen. Gradually, a layer of dead tissue forms on the heels, which has a grayish tint. To tidy up your legs, take care of their health.
It is necessary
- - pelvis;
- - sea salt;
- - pumice stone or metal foot brush;
- - scrub;
- - nourishing mask;
- - cream;
- - olive and burdock oil;
- - vitamin A and E.
Buy a natural pumice stone, and if you have very large growths of dead tissue, a metal brush is better. It is somewhat reminiscent of a grater, but does not damage living tissues, but removes only unnecessary layers of the epithelium. Also get sea salt, nourishing foot cream and scrub. There are special masks on the market that nourish and soften the skin - it's up to you.
Pour warm water into a deep container and add some sea salt. Soak your feet in the water for about 15 minutes - during this time, the skin should become softer. Clean your heels thoroughly with a pumice stone or brush. Try to clean off all the dead epithelium, because it is in it that dirt gets clogged, giving a dark shade to the heels. If you have a desire, then process your nails with the help of manicure supplies.
Dry your feet well with a soft towel and apply a nourishing cream. Perform the procedure as the dead epithelium forms, but at least 2 times a month. With regular care, the heels become very soft and tender.
Use the scrub several times a week. After peeling the skin, apply a nourishing foot mask. Wait a few minutes and wash off with warm water. Apply cream and wear cotton socks. This procedure is best done before going to bed, and do not take off your socks until morning.
And if all else fails, pour a spoonful of olive oil into a small container, add the same amount of burdock, a capsule of vitamin E and A. Mix thoroughly. Rub the resulting mixture into your heels daily. They will gradually become soft and healthy.
