L’Occitane | Get ready for sandal season
Neglecting our skin over the past few weeks has left them feeling undernourished and lacklustre. While taking care of our face has become second nature, the same can’t be said for our feet. So with the warmer months bringing with them the chance to bare our toes, we asked L’Occitane to share their top tips for beautiful, nourished skin.
Preparation is the key to soft supple skin. Twice a week, before taking a bath or shower, set aside a little time to apply a specialist foot scrub or body scrub to your feet. Rub it in gently with your hands for a few minutes, then rinse off. Time well spent!
Podiatrists say the biggest problem with most feet is that they aren't hydrated enough. To combat this common problem, apply an intensive moisturiser after bathing and then spend five to ten minutes massaging the arch of each foot in a circular motion before moving to the top of your feet. Soon to be your best ally, L’Occitane’s Shea Butter Foot Cream will moisturise and help to relieve tired feet.
To promote healthy and strong nails, always keep them trimmed and cut straight across, which L’Occitane recommends doing straight after bathing, when they are softer. While a diet rich in healthy oils such as salmon, nuts and seeds will help to keep them nourished all year round, take it to the next level and treat your toes to a drop of cuticle oil – they are guaranteed to be sandal ready in no time!
