Even Cinderella can get feet ache from time to time. Tired, sore feet can be caused by many things, including glass slippers, well-worn shoes, and even diseases. These home remedies are simple and quick to use, and can be helpful. We are here:
A Long Soak
A long soak is the best way to soothe the pains and itches from the day. This is especially true of your feet.
You have two options: either a hot or cold soak, where you alternately soak your feet with hot and cool water every 5 mins, or warm water with Epsom salts and a few drops lavender, rosemary, and eucalyptus essential oil to soothe your entire body.
# Massage Your Aches Away
Give your feet a massage using a rolling pin or tennis ball. You can simply roll your feet on the pin/ball for several minutes. You can also massage the soreness with warm olive oil.
# Get It Out
Yes, it is possible to relieve the pain by stretching your feet. Drop a few pencils on the ground and pick them up using your toes.
A finger spread can be done to your feet. You can also cross your right leg on a chair, and rest your left ankle on your left hip. To separate your toes, run your fingers through your right foot’s toes. Try to spread your toes wide and not pull them up or downward. For a few moments, hold the position and then switch sides. You can also do a toe release or other similar exercises for your feet.
# Ice Baby
For pain relief from high-heels, apply an ice pack to the soles of your feet for 20 minutes. You can also use ice to reduce swelling quickly. Use a small amount crushed ice or a bag of frozen peas to massage the affected area. You should not use an ice pack more than 10 minutes at once as it can cause damage to the skin and nerves in your feet.
# eat right
If you are experiencing bloated, painful feet, eat foods that balance fluid retention. Bananas are rich in potassium, which helps to reduce fluid retention.
