The dream is to have enough time to have a spa day after a long work week. But since not everyone can do that, the best case scenario is to do everything at home. Aside from face masks, we’re also giving our feet some TLC.
Our suggestion is to do a home foot soak like the one you get at a nail salon or spa. It’s a relaxing routine meant to relieve stress and pain, especially if you’re always on your feet at work. There are also other soaks that exfoliate and help cure bruises and toenail fungus. It’s also pretty easy to do—you just need a small tub of water to dissolve the foot soak in.
