Tips to Have A Healthy Foot:

What You Need:

* A tub to soak your feet
* Pumice or foot file
* Foot Scrub (optional, but very beneficial)
* Moisturizer
* Nail Polish (optional)

How:

1. Soak your feet in warm water for at least 15 minutes. This is the time to just sit back and say "ah". You can use any bowl or dish that your feet will fit into; I use a white dish tub that I picked up at the dollar store. To help reduce swelling in your feet and ankles, add a quarter cup or so of epsom salts into your water or splurge on a great foot soak. Swirl around with your toes until it dissolves. Even though you might not be able to tell, your feet are thanking you.
2. Exfoliate your skin, concentrating on the calluses. This is the time you really want to concentrate on. There are many different options when it comes to exfoliating tools. Use a damp pumice stone or foot file to scrub down your entire foot. Everyone has areas that need to be filed down, so really take your time. Using a foot scrub makes blasting away dead skin ten times easier. Rub the foot scrub on your feet to get a basic exfoliation all over and then scrub over your calluses with the foot file. When you are done scrubbing, rinse and dry your feet.
3. Moisturize with an intense moisturizer. You can use your favorite moisturizer or get something specifically for your feet. I love using peppermint lotions on my feet, especially after soaking in warm water. The cooling sensation peppermint has lasts long after your soak. Make sure you moisturize not only your feet, but your ankles and legs too.
4. Paint your toenails. An option step, of course. Everyone can pull off bold colors on their toenails, even if they only wear clear (or nothing at all) on their fingernails. OPI always crack me up with their color names. If you can't decide, check out two of my favorites: Mauve-lous Memories and Mrs. O'Leary's BBQ.

Tips:

1. After your foot spa, make sure you clean and bleach your foot tub and foot file.
2. When painting your nails, you may want to use a base and top coat. A basecoat fills in any ridges your nails might have making it an even surface. A top coat seals in the polish, giving it extra protection.
3. Make a foot spa night once a week. Once you get in the habit of taking care of your feet, you won't forget. Store all of your products in your soaking tub. Once a week, before you sit down for your favorite show, grab your foot spa kit and fill up the tub.

It is very important to look good no matter where you are. You never know who you are going to meet and you need to make a good first impression. You never know if the person you have just met will be your future client, employer or even lover.
I personally love organic foundations and natural cosmetics because the thought of absorbing all of the chemicals into my skin does not interest me. The typical woman absorbs over five pounds of chemicals through her skin into her body from makeup.
