The regular use of foot spa can even help avoid problems with insomnia.
Foot scrub Benefits.
Too much walking can cause dry patches on feet, resulting to calluses. A foot scrub gently exfoliates and softens rough portions while increasing blood circulation. The treatment usually begins with the feet soaked in gentle and often fragrant solutions that prep rough and thickened skin for sloughing. Peppermint and lavender are some of the most popular foot soaks available today. For a more soothing effect, try an aloe-based foot soak.
After a few minutes of soaking in warm water, the treatment zooms on softening the rough spots with a pumice stone or foot file. This procedure pays special attention to the heels, balls of the feet and toes.
Finally, the feet are coated with moisturizing lotion.
