Taking care of your skin is important in order to keep that supple healthy glow. But, you might not realize that your hands and feet also need a lot of TLC, perhaps more than any other part of your body. Did you know that roughly 80% of the body’s entire immune system is found in the hands and feet?
A hand and foot massage not only helps relieve stress and chronic pain, but it helps to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. Regular rub-downs may also improve circulation. Research has shown that receiving regular massage therapy helps boost our immune system and flush toxins, increasing blood flow throughout the body. Massage increases the activity of white blood cells that help our body fight diseases and may help with reduction of cortisol.
To keep your hands and feet moist, hydrated, healthy, and smooth, be sure to use quality skincare products that are unscented or only mildly scented like our Almost Unscented and Lavender Cami body butters. Additionally, refrain from using harsh chemicals on your hands and feet, as they can damage the skin leading to premature signs of aging.
We all want and love soft hands and feet. Let’s do our part to maintain them. Much love.
