Foot care is simple and easy. It not only keeps the feet clean but also a stress reliever. Here are few tips that can help to maintain healthy feet.

• Soak feet regularly in lukewarm water. Use a pumice stone or foot scrub to remove dead and rough skin. These dead skin if left unattended, become thick and cracks, leading to infections.

• Feet are a place where the nerve endings are pooled up. Therefore a good massage to the feet relaxes the whole body.

• The soles of the feet lack oil glands, so apply a moisturizer very night in regular basis. This nourishes the skin and keeps it fresh. Do not apply cream in between toes.
