Himalaya Herbals Foot Care Cream

We often ignore our feet while they go through the most wear and tear. All the running around causes my heels to crack and my skin to tighten. Even after regular pedicures we  need to be take care of our heels daily. Today I am going to review Himalaya Herbals Foot care cream for you.IMG_1924IMG_1925.JPG

Key ingredients:

  • Honey, with its bactericidal and antiseptic properties, is extremely important in Ayurveda. Used in a variety of medicines, honey is also an effective moisturizing agent.
  • Turmeric has been used as an antiseptic for centuries. The herb also contains strong anti-inflammatory properties, which soothe your feet gently.
  • Sal Tree extract is used as an ingredient in ointments for skin diseases and in ear medicines. Its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties help heal cracked heels.
  • Ginger is used externally as a local circulatory stimulant which keeps the feet warm, preventing the skin from cracking due to the cold.
  • Fenugreek has been traditionally used in Ayurvedic medicines and is an excellent moisturizer, specially formulated to hydrate dry skin. Applied externally, the herb is also beneficial for boils, abscesses and ulcers.

Directions for use:

Wash feet with lukewarm water and pat dry. Apply the required quantity of FootCare Cream over the affected area twice daily, once in the morning after bathing and again at bedtime.

My Views On the Product:IMG_1926.JPG

Even through my feet don’t crack a lot, the skin on them does tend to get hard and wrinkly. This foot cream keeps them hydrated and prevents them from cracking. Also the thing i like most about this foot cream is that it smells great and is not at all greasy. I apply it once at night. I wash my feet with a bath salt and lukewarm water, After drying them I apply a  layer of the foot cream and wear my socks before going to bed. I even gifted a tube to my dad who has cracked heels and he also seemed to love it.

The things that I really like about this cream are that it is easily available and it is very affordable. It is a herbal product but the only sad thing is, it contains parabens.

I would absolutely recommend you to give it a try. For more details visit the website http://www.himalayastore.com/wellness/general/footcare-cream.htm

Ordering Online Vs Dine In

There was a time when a hearty home cooked meal was the only thing that satisfied us. Only time we got to eat out was at social gatherings and events like weddings (well, I still love the amazing free food at the weddings). Then came the era of dinning out which we still associate with romantic dates and in my case blind dates. Laugh all you may but its true that you can barely go out on a blind date anymore as now we all prefer to date Netflix rather than another human being.er_diningroom We prefer spending weekends ordering in rather than going out and in this post I am going to explain why in just 6 points  :-

  1. Cooking these days is an art and not a thing everyone knows how to do. After a long day at work people prefer to sit back on their recliners and enjoy their meals in front of their smart TVs
  2. Ordering in save time. Time taken to go to a restaurant and waiting time in the restaurant is a deal breaker for today’s impatient souls.
  3. Eating out alone can get lonely or it attracts unnecessary attention for men. For once all I want to do is eat my meal in peace and not entertain some random guy in his mid life crisis.
  4. If I go to a Mexican restaurant and ask them to serve me some nachos with mayonnaise instead of salsa, they would look at me like I am some primitive being who has no idea of how to eat. But at home I can eat what I want the way I want to eat it. We all have weird eating habits and would love to indulge in them without anyone judging us
  5. More options! I can order five different things from five different restaurants and enjoy them all at once. This is literally impossible while dinning out unless of course you were successful in cloning yourself five times
  6. There are so many discount and cashback offers available on online ordering websites. Its always cheaper to order in than dinning out and I love the idea of saving some money just to buy an extra dessert 😉Online-Ordering-System-Definition.jpgo7wnaxzimfjxrp-640m

By now, I am sure I have been able to convince you that ordering in is definitely preferred by a millennial like me. But at the same time if you want to impress your friends on social media, you have get up, put on your best dress and go to a fancy restaurant to click eye catching pictures of beautifully plated food.
