After a long period of hibernation, when we finally put on our sandals, our feet can 'look' dry and cracked, an unequivocal sign of poor hydration. There are many women who avoid wearing their feet uncovered, despite the heat, or carefully select summer shoes so that they do not expose an area of ​​the body with which they do not feel particularly comfortable. The feet need little care, but they demand the basics. The first measures can happen, precisely, not to forget them.

Why do corns and hardnesses appear?
Corns and hardnesses are hardening of the epidermis produced by rubbing and pressure exerted on the feet, which generates a cellular multiplication that causes the appearance of dead cells on the corneal layer and thickening.

What is the difference between both?
Corns and hardness originate for the same reason, however, they differ in how and where they appear. The calluses are small in size, usually appear in the joints and cause a lot of discomfort and pain, since from the nucleus they exert pressure on the nerve endings in order to reach the bone. The hardnesses are larger than corns, they have no nucleus, their touch is rough, and they can increase in size and acquire a yellowish color. Normally, they appear on the sole of the foot, although they can also be found on the heel or on the sides. Another of the big differences is that they don't hurt.

Tips to take care of your feet
Like a beauty routine, your feet also deserve good daily care, especially considering that they support the weight of the body throughout the day. Foot care should become another habit. To do this, here are some tips that you should follow to get a well-groomed foot. You won't mind teaching them anymore!

Step 1: good hygiene

When we are in the shower, sometimes, we can forget to lather our feet and think that nothing happens. Error! The feet also need plenty of soap and water, as they are exposed to heat, moisture, bacteria and fungi. Ideally, use a neutral soap and wash them well, remembering also to rub between your fingers.

Step 2: dry your feet very well

Instead of getting out of the shower and drying yourself quickly, knowing that you will still be wet, spend more time drying yourself from head to toe. You should do it carefully and always remember to dry between the toes, an area that we normally neglect.

Step 3: moisturizer, always

Are you one of those who put moisturizer on the body and when you reach the ankles stop applying it? Many of us forget to reach the feet and also massage them with the cream, however, we should always rub them because they need constant hydration. Otherwise, the dryness that we dislike so much appears. If they are quite dehydrated use a cream of dry and cracked feet to get better results in less time.

Step 4: exfoliation

You also use them for the face and body, why not also apply them on the feet? Using an exfoliating product every two weeks helps eliminate dead skin cells, improving the appearance of your feet and freeing them from dead skin.

Little tricks, great remedies
An effective measure, at night, is to soak them with water and salt to relax them, and then remove impurities and dead skin with pumice, an ideal volcanic rock to gently scrape the areas where the hardnesses appear. Adopting this habit a couple of times a week is a guarantee of clean and soft feet.
In both summer and winter, it is essential to wear comfortable shoes, avoid chafing and too thin soles. Ah! And don't forget to extend the use of sunscreen on foot this summer. The instep is one of the areas that most easily burn.
Perform a warm foot bath: it is advisable to put them with coarse salt for 30 minutes, on a weekly basis, and perform a bath that combines hot and cold water for a few minutes, every fifteen days.
