The cold winter weather can be hard on your skin, and that dry air can be especially hard on your feet. Dry, cracked skin is a common problem when the temperatures start to drop, but there are ways to fight back and keep your toes in great shape all year long. Here are some essential skin care tips to keep your feet happy and healthy no matter how cold it gets outside.

Use Moisturizer

Indoor heat can really dry out the air in the winter, so keep your moisturizer nearby and use it often. Applying moisturizer to your tired feet will make them feel better and help you avoid dry, cracked skin.

Treat Yourself to a Soothing Bath

Keeping your feet clean is a big part of smart winter skin care, so treat yourself to a bubble bath or some soothing bath oil. Use a moisturizing shower gel or soap, and dry your feet thoroughly as soon as you leave the tub.

Give Your Feet Some Breathing Room

It may be tempting to keep your feet covered 24/7, especially when the temperature drops and your little piggies get cold. Even so, it is important to give your feet the breathing room they need, so pull off those slippers and go barefoot once in awhile.

Keep Your Nails Neatly Trimmed

Sandal season may be a distant memory, but that is no reason to let your toenails grow wild. Keeping your nails neatly trimmed is even more important in the cold winter months, so keep your nail file nearby. Even better, treat yourself to a pedicure – a little pampering is a sure cure for the winter blues.

Treat Your Damaged Nails Promptly

Nail damage is common in winter, and it is important to treat it promptly. Use a quality nail oil that contains tea tree oil or similar anti-fungal agents, and always follow the instructions on the package to make the treatment as effective as possible.

Enjoy a Regular Foot Massage

Nothing soothes tired winter feet quite like a soothing foot massage, so grab your partner and ask for a foot rub. You can also treat yourself to a foot massage using an electric foot massager or soothing foot bath with massage action.

It is not easy to keep your feet fresh and happy in the winter. The cold weather can chill your toes to the bone, and the dry air can leave your skin dry, cracked and painful. Even so, you do not have to give into these winter woes, and spending some time caring for your feet can help you avoid the worst those winter foot care blues.

Staycation Sensation: How To Plan A Home Based Vacation

Okay, how long has it been since you last took a vacation?

Getting out of town can be really hard at times, especially with a young family! Travel costs are always on the rise, and a car full of kids (and all of their stuff!) is exhausting to think about. Don’t get me wrong. I love a good vacation, but I’ve always felt that you don’t have to “get away from it all” to have awesome quality time together. Plus, hey, no worrying about who will take care of the livestock and garden!

I recently came across a “Staycation Kit” from The Dating Divas, and was super impressed! It adds a fun element to a home based vacation.

Don’t Vacation. Staycation Instead!

There is so much in this awesome pack! I love the idea of a quality “Staycation” – there is so much to do and see in our own hometown, and we never get a chance to go and do it. Not only does it save a ton of money, but I feel like we can have just as much fun staying local.

The Divas offer up a ton of tips to do it right, too, which is key! I feel like not enough people know how to do an awesome Staycation, and I think too many people would treat it like more work than it actually should be. More work = no fun! The Dating Divas really outlined in this pack how to make it just as much fun as an out-of-town holiday.

Make It Fun With a Staycation Kit

The Staycation Kit was designed by Alexa Z Design, and it includes:

  • Staycation Invitation
  • Summer Vacation Bucket List
  • Family Activities Itinerary
  • Kids & Spouse Love Coupons
  • Summer Staycation Postcards
  • Romantic Vacation Playlist
  • Steamy Couples Games (for after the kids are in bed)

You gotta check out this pack! If you’re looking to save a bit of money this year, or can’t seem to figure out where to go, it’s a must-see.
