Beautiful feet for the busy bee July 29, 2013 18:31

A woman needs to take her of her feet. For a busy woman, it becomes a task better put off for later. For such situations, beautiful feet are not too difficult with a few simple techniques. Feet, to look clear, should have no hard skin on them. Stress or friction on the feet leads to hard skin that can be scraped off with a foot file. Once the hard skin, particularly on the balls and toes, is removed, a strong moisturizer will keep it supple. Wearing comfortable footwear prevents most issues with the skin also. Shoes that compress the feet too much create bad skin and scars. Make sure that the strappy sandals are not so strappy that they dog into the skin of the feet. The right footwear keeps the toe nails safe and pretty. Cutting toenails using the right technique is necessary. Toe nails should be cut straight across with a nail clipper, giving them a squarish look. Long toe nails are not healthy. Leaving the nails free of nail polish from time to time helps to prevent yellowing of the nails. Applying foot creams at night before sleeping is a good practice for the busy women. It prevents formation of unsightly skin on the feet. These are some of the simpler ways to maintain beautiful feet, without having to spend hours on them. (AW: Sruthi)
