Home Foot Spa

Don’t worry, I’m not going to suggest one of those big machines that give great foot massages but that takes a lot of space in your house and you rarely use them. Maybe while it’s new, but then you just can’t bother.

I want to tell you about the simple and practical things I do to take care of my feet and that you can also apply to your care routine. Because let’s be honest, our feet go through a lot. Whether it’s heels, flat shoes that are just too flat, working hours, hot weather, cold weather and just standing has an impact on our feet.

It’s important to take care of them and to do it frequently. Here’s what I do:

Once a month – I use a pumice stone and sometimes a foot brush to gently exfoliate my feet, at least once a month. If I have the time to do it more frequently I do, but this helps to remove all the dead skin and leave your feet feeling extremely soft.

Once a week – I use foot socks to deeply moisturise the skin. I’ve recently been using the ones from Superdrug. My favourite is the one with enriched with Tea Tree, Peppermint and Vitamin E. I’m also a big fan of the honey and almond one. These help to soothe and soften dry, rough and cracked heels. After using them I always feel like I’m walking on clouds. You can get them here – https://www.superdrug.com/search?q=foot+socks%3Arelevance%3Abrand%3A418065&text=foot+socks&minSel=1.0&maxSel=10.0&minSlider=1.0&maxSlider=10.0&resultsForPage=20&sort=relevance&brand418065=on

Daily – I make sure I go for daily walks because this helps with blood circulation, not only in my feet but also my legs. I also make sure they get enough rest when I get home and that I’m barefoot as much as possible. If it’s cold, just wear socks! Make sure your feet aren’t stuck inside your shoes for too many hours because this will affect them in the long run.

Georganics Review

One of my latest goals is to replace all of my products for natural, organic and non-animal tested ones. Not only for environmental reasons, but also for a healthier lifestyle.

After wearing braces for 2 years and having now finally remove them, one of my main concerns is to maintain a healthy smile, so when I read about Georganics’ products I had to give it a try.

I was tired of industrially-produced toothpaste that leave a fresh but weird flavour on your mouth. For example I used to wash my teeth after eating something really good and my mouth would automatically taste like chemicals. Disgusting.

So a month ago I start using Georganics natural and organic coconut oil remineralizing toothpaste and coconut oil pulling mouthwash. You can try different flavours, I went for the red mandarin, but at the bottom of this post I’ll leave a link with a list of a few more and how you can get them with a special discount.

First week – I was so excited about the new products that I probably started brushing my teeth more than 3 times a day. I would eat anything and brush my teeth straight away knowing that it wouldn’t leave that weird taste in my mouth. It felt natural.

Second week – I started noticing that, even though before my gums used to hurt me before every time I would bite something with a bit more strength, now I can eat whatever I want. It doesn’t hurt anymore. It feels healthy already.

Third week – I was scared that being a natural product and not having so many chemicals it wouldn’t maintain my teeth white like normal toothpastes, but it definitely does maintain, they’re probably more white now than before and they’re still healthy.

Fourth week – I went to Portugal and forgot my toothpaste at home so had to use a normal one. Most horrible experience ever. I’m definitely not going back.

Georganics have very clear principles. They don’t need to use artificial, synthetically made chemicals to have clean teeth or kill bad bacteria in our mouth. Instead they source each ingredient from pure and organic sources. They also believe that materials and ingredients not found in nature, often chemically altered, are toxic and not safe for us. Ingredients that undergo process of alteration and modification from their natural form, also become harmful and unsafe for us to use.

So they only use organic ingredients (real plants and fruits) from certified organic farms/crops and also inorganic ingredients (minerals and salts) from pure and unaltered sources.

If you would like to try these products too, I have great news for you. I’m offering a 20% off discount code to all my followers.

This code is valid till the 31st of May 2017. Can only be used once per person.

Code: Meli20
