I ramble a lot about facial products, but body care, and in particular, feet deserve some tender loving care as well. Feet are referred as the foundation of the body, and maintaining them in great condition will have a positive impact on your general wellbeing.
I try to do a daily foot massage to get rid of any tension held in the area, and I make sure to keep the skin moist and subtle. Every day or two, I apply these products to keep my feet happy.Badger Foot Balm Peppermint & Tea Tree – travel size
Starting off with Badger’s foot balm with Peppermint and Tea tree. This alone won’t repair cracked heels, however it revives the feet with the cooling essential oils of Peppermint, Tea tree and rosemary. Thanks to its antibacterial properties, Badger’s balm prevents infections and counteracts odor, which also makes it the perfect companion when you go to the gym or Yoga class. I just massage a nutshell all over my feet, with extra attention te heel and toes to revive my sore and tired feet.

Narynda Heel Balm*
The second step consists in applying a small coat of Narynda Heel balm. I’m currently testing out several products from this Cambridge-based skincare line, so you’ll hear more about it soon. Narynda’s heel balm is a concentrate of moisture. An unfragranced balm that works wonders to repair dry, cracked skin. The buttery texture is easily absorbed by the skin, and quickly restores the much-needed hydration and elasticity. Among the top ingredients, Cranberry, Chamomille and Olive butters, which were infused in a blend of almond oil and shea butter. If this doesn’t combat dry skin, then I don’t know what does. Rich in fatty acids, and vitamins A and E, this is something I can see myself purchasing every winter to keep my feet in great shape. The perfect thick, emollient treatment for dry, callused areas requiring intensive moisturization.

A third step would be putting on comfy warm socks and relax 😉
