For those who are lucky enough to be able to work remotely, working from home is the new norm following the Coronavirus outbreak in the country and the world. With the stay-at-home order mandated by the government, many are in quarantine with their partners or families to stay protected against the invisible enemy: Covid-19. Because many are now working from home to avoid getting infected, their usual office OOTD have been transformed to athleisure and other clothing that’s appropriate for staying at home. Today, we’ve rounded up some of the most comfortable slippers for working from home and some tips on how to care for your feet at home, given that most spas and nail shops are still closed in some states.

 

How to Care For Your Feet at Home

Before we check out our list of the most comfortable slippers for working from home, here are some tips on how to care for your feet at home now that you’re practicing social distancing from your manicurist/pedicurist. With summer just around the corner, many are anticipating wearing sandals outdoors. With the coronavirus pandemic, we might need to forego that for a while longer, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get your feet summer ready at home. Here are some tips on how to care for your feet at home.

  1. Soothe your feet with an at-home spa. Now would be a great time to take your mind off the coronavirus pandemic and sink your feet into a nice foot batch. Consider the Ovitus Foot Spa Bath Massager, a multifunction massaging foot spa that comforts your feet with its automatic motorized roller for acupuncture and heating therapy.
  2. Exfoliate dry skin. The foot’s dry skin and calluses is its way of protecting the feet from the ground and other surfaces. According to Marie Claire, it’s important to exfoliate using a callus-scraping tool. Consider the Grace & Stella Callus Remover Foot Files for Pedicures & Soft Feet, a 3-piece set that includes 2 fine foot files to remove minor rough, cracked, dead skin on the heels and a stainless steel heel scraper tool for coarse, callous and corns removal. 
  3. Treat your feet to a foot soak. Pamper your tired feet muscles with a foot soak. Check out FineVine Organics Calming Lavender Foot Soak with Epsom Salt, a moisturizing, antibacterial foot soak with natural healing oils to leave you relaxed and your feet’s skin softened and ready for a scrub. 
  4. Scrub your feet! Personal hygiene is important now more than ever with the coronavirus infecting thousands of people worldwide. Keep your feet clean with a foot scrub that eliminates impurities. Check out the Cowshed On The Hoof Reviving Foot Scrub for Women, which contains moisturizing avocado oil, soothing aloe vera, and natural black volcanic sand that exfoliates to soften hard and dry skin.
  5. Moisturize your feet. Our feet are prone to dryness. Make sure to avoid this and prevent cracked skin with a moisturizer especially designed for foot skin. Check out Gold Bond Ultimate Softening Foot Cream with Shea Butter, which features a non-greasy formula that absorbs quickly. It harnesses the power of 7 essential moisturizers and vitamins, shea butter, and silk peptide matrix to condition skin and keep it moisturized.
