As with all the other parts of our bodies, good health starts from cleanliness and proper hygiene. So besides removing all the deep seated dirt, removing dry skin and preventing callus formation, scrubbing your feet will help you avoid many infections that result from clogged pores.
Rubbing and scrubbing our feet is without a doubt relaxing. After a hard day’s work, who wouldn’t want to relieve stress, right? But aside from rejuvenating us, foot scrubbing will also help treat insomnia. By feeling nurtured, calm, and stress-free, you’ll be able to sleep faster and better.
Blood circulation becomes limited when there’s stress. That’s why our whole bodies feel exhausted when it’s only our feet that are really tired. So because foot scrubbing is also a form of massage, by doing it, you also stimulate your reflexes and acupressure points. As a result, you’re allowing the blood to flow more freely throughout your body.
