So you’ve had a long day. But you’re home and it’s finally over. Consider adding a caffeine scrub or moisturizer to your end-of-the day routine. This will soothe exhausted muscles.
There are many different reasons your feet might hurt at the end of the day. Often, this can feel like pampering, and can lift your spirits and reduce your physical discomfort.
Four Ways to Soothe Tired Hands and Feet with Caffeine
Use a Caffeinated Body Scrub: Body scrubs are a great way to encourage blood flow and reduce tension. A caffeinated body scrub exfoliates the skin, and the motion of applying the scrub helps muscles to relax. The hands and feet are some of the most used muscles in the body, and relaxation of those muscles is often a good thing.
Massage with Moisturizers: Massage is a great way to soothe tired hands and feet after a long day. Moisturizers with caffeine are a great way to add moisture and re-energize with increased blood flow to the extremities. Also, you can use a caffeine-infused moisturizer to improve the moisture levels in your hands and feet and reduce tension in your muscles.
Enhance a Hot Soak: If your solution to a long day is a hot bath or to soak your feet, there are products that you can use to enhance the effects of the hot water. You can add Epsom salts and a few drops of lavender essential oil, for example, to make the experience more soothing, calm cramps, and to relax you further.
Drink Tea: Some say that aching feet can be caused by a fluid imbalance; adding herbal tea to your menu may help to alleviate this issue and hydrate your whole body.
Reduce Inflammation: Inflammation can cause pain and discomfort, and caffeine helps reduce inflammation throughout the body. You may also want to reconsider some of the foods in your diet. Gluten and dairy are notorious for causing inflammation. Quit those for a few weeks and see how you feel. Meanwhile, potent anti-inflammatory foods to add to your diet include leafy greens, turmeric, ginger, pineapple, and blueberries.
