This is time to pamper your feet week!

We take a lot of care to ensure that our face looks best in all conditions. Feet are the part of the body that is normally neglected. But, did you know that feet also requires equal amount of rejuvenation and repair? They are probably the most used, yet ignored part of the body. Throughout the day, as you go about your day to day activities, the feet are mostly overlooked unless your shoe causes any sort of discomfort.

You should pamper your feet with proper care to ensure that you do not have any sore or swollen feet problems. The feet bear the weight of the entire body throughout the day. The stress as well as the heat build up can add to temperature of the feet. If you wear shoes all day long or your job demand a lot of walking then your feet can get really tired and worn out.

You can pamper your feet with a nice foot creak or lotion that contains the natural ingredient such as peppermint. Using peppermint foot lotion is a good idea as it known to have a cooling and soothing effect. It can take the stress out of your feet and make your feet relaxed.

The peppermint foot lotion has a refreshing smell and it works on the tired muscles of your feet to make them comfortable. Peppermint is also a natural herb which has curative properties and is used in several cosmetic and medicinal products.

A quality peppermint foot lotion contains Omega 3 oils which help in soothing the tired muscles of the feet. It also contains other natural ingredients such as Emu oil, coconut oil, green tea leaf extracts, sunflower seed oil and tea tree oil.

Apart from relieving the stress, the peppermint foot lotion also softens the hardened calluses. This also helps in promoting the circulation and providing treatment for the overworked feet. The lotion also assists in relaxing the cramped muscles.

It is important that you keep your feet happy and healthy. If the problems persist then you must consult a physician or podiatrist. Remember to always keep your foot dry, clean, and fungus free.

3 Types of Soap

I have customers who frequently ask me the difference between the 3 types of soap that I sell so here it is!

Glycerin Soap
Lemon Pucker Soap

Although glycerin is a fat by-product of soap production that is removed to be used in skin creams or other cleaning items, it is also used to make glycerin soap. These bars are translucent (meaning you can see through them) and come in a variety of colors and fragrances.

Glycerin soap helps the skin absorb the moisture in the air, causing it to stay softer.

People with sensitive skin find that glycerin is gentle on their complexion.

This soap quickly dissolves in water, making it easy to wash off. It doesn't leave behind a film like heavier soaps do.

Those who suffer from such skin disorders, such as eczema and psoriasis, can help relieve symptoms by washing with glycerin.

Because it's gentle on the skin, glycerin soap can be used by people of all ages.

Shea Butter Soap
Lavender and Oats Shea Butter Gentle Exfoliating Soap for Sensitive Skin and Eczema

Shea butter is extracted from the nut of West Africa's wild karite tree. Its high content of essential fatty acids and natural anti-oxidant compounds provide extreme moisturizing capabilities as well as cellular restoration.

Shea butter has proven successful in the treatment of various skin ailments including eczema and psoriasis and in some cases rosacia.

Shea butter helps to restore elasticity to the skin.

Shea Butter helps to heal cuts and burns without scarring.

Shea Butter helps to minimize stretch marks.

Shea butter has natural sun protection qualities for your skin and hair (although it should not be used in place of sunscreen.)

Shea butter works wonderfully on razor bumps and rashes.

It's an intensive general moisturizer, ideal for dry, cracking skin. It is especially good for those extra dry spots: elbows, heels, knees and cuticle beds.

Goat's Milk Soap
Pink Sugar Goats Milk Soap

Goat milk contains lots of nutrients like fats, proteins and other hormones that naturally benefit the skin. The benefits of goat milk soap can be felt by people suffering from various skin conditions or those just wanting to maintain youthful, rejuvenated skin.

Goat milk soap has a pH level similar to human skin; therefore, goat milk soap benefits the skin by protecting skin from daily bacterial and chemical invasions.

The moisturizing benefits of goat milk soap surpass that of commercial soap because of the natural creams in goat's milk.

Handmade goat milk soap benefits people with sensitive skin because it doesn't contain additives like alcohol, petroleum and preservatives. This reduces the risk of skin irritation and allergic reactions.
