Say goodbye to swollen feet
Irrespective of whether you love or hate your feet, I’m pretty certain that you aren’t too keen on the ‘cankle’ look (you know, when your feet are so swollen your ankles loose all definition and seem to disappear into your calves) – am I right? I thought so.
If you’re often on your feet all day, have ever been on a long-haul flight, or suffer from water retention, then chances are you’ve already experienced the ‘joys’ of cankles – and aren’t exactly looking forward to the next time your feet swell to the same epic proportions.
So before your feet start kicking up a fuss, try these quick and easy tips to relieve tired, swollen feet. Who knows – you might just get your ankles back!
1.) Soak your feet with a soothing foot soak, like Sally Hansen Revitalizing Foot Soak. Calming lavender in the formula will help to minimise swelling, eliminate any redness and relieve aches and pains.
2.) Massage away excess fluid with a foot lotion. Use firm, upwards strokes towards your heart to stimulate your circulation and aid lymphatic drainage and toxin release. The swelling may feel pretty set-in, but keep going and we promise you’ll see results.
3.) Cool things down by using a cooling foot spray or make your own using peppermint, tea tree and eucalyptus oils. It will keep the swelling from coming back plus deodorise and disinfect your feet.
