Tips in Choosing the Best Foot Cream

Our feet are sometimes the most neglected part of our body. If we give attention in the care of our hair, teeth and skin, so must we also give the needed care to our feet. We need to remind ourselves that our feet are actually the most overworked part of the body. Without them, we will find it hard to do our daily tasks.
I can still remember my mother telling me to soak my feet with lukewarm water sprinkled with a little soap to relax my feet and to put some cream or baby lotion all over it and it worked. But my busy schedule can no longer permit me to do this activity. Situations like these have brought foot spas and foot massages to enter into the scene.
Before indulging in pampering your feet, you must first be able to recognize what is troubling your feet. Then you can decide what treatment to use and what appropriate cream must be applied. Out in the market now are a lot of foot creams. And how do you choose the best, Read the ingredients. Some manufacturers list down a lot of ingredients but actually the foot cream is loaded with chemicals. A foot cream made from natural ingredients will do your feet better.
Here are just a few tips to guide you:
Shorea robusta or sal tree based cream – this provides anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial effect on your feet
Curcuma longa or turmeric – has excellent antiseptic qualities which can complete your total feet care regimen
Honey – some foot creams contain honey as it is also antibacterial and acts as an antiseptic
Urea-based cream – also has antibacterial, antimicrobial and antifungal properties.
Calluses or chapped feet will be better treated with the use of foot creams as they moisturize and nourish the feet. Other creams also contain beeswax, lanolin, paraffin, vitamin E, sunflower oil and glycerin.
The next time around you go shopping for foot creams, make sure that you read the labels first. Choose natural-based foot creams and not those creams which listed a lot of ingredients which you cannot even understand. These are normally synthetics or chemicals, acids or camphors. Bear in mind that you want to give the best to your feet and get that smoother and softer feeling on your soles, so make the right choice.
