Hands and feet
Your hands and feet are some of the most important parts of your body. You use them all day every day yet when it comes to a self-care regime they are so commonly overlooked. Firstly looking to the hands;
Your hands are used to touch almost everything you come into contact with, including your mouth and face. Your hands can potentially carry a whole host of germs that you pick up in your day-to-day activities which could then easily pass through into your system by touching your face. Keeping your hands and nails is paramount to looking after your wellbeing. However excessive washing or sanitizing can result in dry and sore skin, so be sure to follow up your hand washing with moisturizer to keep them soft and safe. When moisturizing your hands be sure to do so with a sun protection cream as your hands are exposed to the elements as much, if not more, than any other part of your body so you want to be sure to keep them protected from any harmful rays.
Equally as important as your hands are your feet. You need your feet for your mobility and if you are suffering from discomfort in your feet it will have a negative impact on your mobility and overall health and wellness. You can take care of your feet by ensuring they are kept clean, moisturized, that any corns or calluses are seen by professionals, that nails are kept cut and that you wear proper supportive footwear. Allow yourself a chiropody or pedicure appointment from time to time to keep on top of your foot health, and you never know you may even be able to sell feet pics as a side hustle.
