Foot Massage:

Take a step further and you have reflexology: foot massage geared toward relieving certain ailments in the body.

Calluses are completely common among nurses because they walk constantly.
Painful and unsightly though, a foot bath in Epsom salt is effective.
Scrub at the calluses with a pumice stone. Rinse your feet in apple cider vinegar. Repeat the process.
At night, apply a foot crème consisting of peppermint oil and coconut oil to the affected area. Cover the area with a bandage. Your calluses will be gone in days if you repeat this process regularly.

Feet are among the most important parts of the body. Like the roots of a tree, they support us, and we should repay them with tender care. Make foot care a part of your daily beauty routine and be sure to get plenty of rest for your feet. Massage your feet often, whether at home or work.
