Lanelle Milanie Torralba on Taking Good Care of Your Feet

Before you slip into those costly stilettos, you may want to do something about the dry, cracked heels.  Rough feet are never pretty, and you certainly want your skin to feel as beautiful as the shoes you’re stepping into.

Needless to say, foot care shouldn’t be an option – it should be an absolute must.  Your feet carry you everywhere you go. They support tremendous daily pressure and weight.

Just as you are applying beauty regimen for your hair and face, so too should your feet benefit from some similar tender loving care.

Treat your feet the way you treat your face.

Here’s what Lanelle recommends:

  1. Soak 

Soak your feet for 5-10 minutes in warm water and Lanelle Foot Soak, which helps eliminate toxins in the body. Do this twice a week.

  1. Scrub 

Make sure to scrub between your toes and underneath your nails, with any of your favorite Lanelle Foot Scrub.  These foot scrubs are specially formulated to work their magic on the feet.  They contain ingredients that stimulate circulation and condition the skin while sloughing away dead skin cells. The scrub granules are abrasive, good for exfoliation.

Scrub your feet while in the shower and do it at least three times a week to exfoliate the skin and combat build up.  The key is minimizing callus formation.  You’ll notice your feet will start to feel as smooth as a baby’s.

  1. Mask

Use a Lanelle Foot Mask every two weeks to help remove oil and impurities deep within the skin, which will leave your feet looking and feeling refreshed, with pleasant smell.

  1. Massage

Massage your feet frequently using any Lanelle Massage Oil (Lavender; Peppermint; Eucalyptus) — every day if you can — with motions towards the heart (the direction of circulation) and your whole body will thank you.

  1. Moisturize

Lanelle recommends Lanelle Urea Lotion 40%, since urea is an ingredient that penetrates the skin to keep it soft and supple.  Apply the lotion every night, paying special attention to the heels.  Massage your feet and wear socks.  Wash in morning with your favorite Lanelle soap and dry with a towel.  You could do this treatment once in a week or twice depending on how dry your feet are.

  1. Trim

Your toenails are arguably the main focus of your feet, so be careful when you’re clipping. Cut them straight across and don’t cut into the sides.  Otherwise, you could get painful ingrown nails.

  1. Whiten

Use Lanelle whitening soap and Lanelle whitening lotion to keep your feet smoother and whiter.

  1. Protect 

Slather Lanelle Skin Moisturizing Lotion with SPF30 all over the body when you go out for good sun protection, as your feet needs protection from sun damage, too.

Bless and be blessed!
