How to take care of your feet at home
Caring for your feet at home
With summer approaching, we are showing off our feet more. Often, they are tucked away in socks and shoes, but with the warmer temperatures, those cute sandals and open-toe shoes can come out of the closet again. Preparing your feet for this can be done right at home! Give yourself a lovely pedicure and get ready for summer.
The importance of a foot care routine
But why is taking good care of your feet so important? By wearing tight shoes, our skin forms extra layers of calluses to protect them and the skin becomes thicker. To avoid too many calluses, it is important to carefully remove them on a regular basis. In addition, just like your hands, you should moisturize your feet regularly. Sufficient moisture will help keep your skin elastic and less prone to damage.
How to make your feet healthy and soft
Healthy and soft feet are not easy to come by. But if you put in some time every now and then, you will have well-cared-for feet in no time. Completing a good foot care routine occasionally will do the trick, but there is more you can do to look after your feet. Make sure you always dry your feet thoroughly after a shower or bath. This will prevent your skin from staying wet too long which can cause bacteria to develop.
How to get rid of hard skin on your feet
To reduce the rough skin on your feet, start by changing your shoes regularly. Wearing the same pair of shoes for a long time or wearing them too long is bad for your feet. Especially if you often wear shoes that are too tight, calluses will form more quickly.

Not sure where to start? With our new pedicure products, it is easy to take care of your feet yourself. The Callus Remover in combination with the Foot File makes it easy to gently remove calluses and hard skin. The Miracle Foot Lotion completes your pedicure and has a deep moisturizing effect.

At-home pedicure steps
Step 1: Apply the Callus Remover to the callus on your feet at approximately 10 cm. Allow the product to do its work and soak for 2 minutes.
Step 2: Take the foot file and file carefully over the hard skin in a back-and-forth motion. Use the coarse side for this. Finish with the fine side for a smooth finish. After removing the callus, rinse your feet in a footbath.
Step 3: Apply the Miracle Foot Lotion. This moisturizing lotion will make your feet softer and moisturized. Massage the lotion well.
Did you know that a good foot massage is also healthy? It stimulates blood circulation. Besides massaging your feet, it is healthy to walk on your bare feet regularly for a 'natural' massage.
If you cannot remove all the calluses immediately, it is better to repeat the treatment regularly. This way, you can enjoy soft and well-groomed feet.
