I remember, on more than one occasion, one of my aunts saying to me, "Take care of your feet." As time passed, I realized just how important those words really are. We need to take care of our bodies, inside and out, and our feet are definitely not exceptions. Most of us spend a lot of time on our feet regularly anyway, so taking care of them would be especially important. Using natural ingredients on and in our bodies can ensure us of the greatest health outcomes. Our feet are our body's foundation, so keeping them healthy is absolutely necessary, and the way they look, feel and function can also be some of the many indicators of our bodies' overall health. After doing a little research, I found some very interesting information about the nerves and our feet. We have a lot of nerve endings at the bottom of our feet. There are more nerve endings at the bottom of our feet than in any other part of our body, evidently more than 7,000...in each foot! Also, if we do not remove the buildup of dead skin cells, they can form thick, flaky patches on the feet. The dry areas can eventually become thick/cracked, especially the heels. Cracked heels can make the feet vulnerable to infection, while thick calluses, if developed, can make walking difficult or uncomfortable. With this in mind, I wanted to create a natural product that focused exclusively on the feet, so I recently added a Dead Sea Salt Foot Scrub to my skincare line. Dead Sea Salt contains wonderful minerals such as Magnesium, Potassium and Calcium. It can be used for exfoliating the skin and has antifungal, antimicrobial and antibacterial properties that help with cleansing and detoxifying the skin. This foot scrub also contains skin-friendly oils like Olive and Vitamin E, and essential oils like Lavender, which is circulation increasing, anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving. If you're looking for something new to use that can naturally help with keeping your feet healthy, click on the Origin: Nature Skincare tab and pamper your feet with this scrub. Happy self-caring!
