Summer Foot Care With Yoto & Claire
Sandal weather is here at long last, and your tootsies will take the spotlight again. Yoto and Claire’s all-natural, certified organic products can help you put your best feet forward this summer.
Here are simple tips for keeping your feet healthy and beautiful so you feel confident stepping out in open summer shoes, sandals, slides, or flip-flops:
Beautiful feet begin with cleanliness. You can skip the salon and enjoy a simple, relaxing self-care session at home: Soak your feet in warm water with some Yoto and Claire soap, carefully and conservatively trim toenails straight across, use a pumice stone to buff away callouses, and wash and dry your feet completely with a soft towel.
Then apply your favorite Yoto & Claire moisturizer – Shea Body Butter or Cocoa Body Butter – and give yourself a relaxing foot massage to stimulate blood flow. Finally, wipe the moisturizer from your toenails and polish them with a pale, summery shade or a bright, bold color that reflects your personal style.
Here are some tips for beautiful feet this season:
- Footwear is essential for protecting your feet from hazards. Don’t go barefoot.
- Always use a high SPF sunscreen on them before you go outdoors.
- If your footwear gets wet, switch to a dry pair to avoid the possibility of a fungal infection.
- Stay hydrated in the summer heat – drink lots of water.
Your feet will take care of you if you take care of them. All-natural, certified organic Yoto and Claire products are perfect for pampering yours to ensure they are ready for their time in the sun.

Small changes in your daily routine can make a big difference during these challenging times. Many people have seen their lives upended by the pandemic, leaving them feeling anxious, depressed, and uncertain. For some, healthy self-care routines that were ingrained have slowly fallen by the wayside. But there are simple ways you can turn things around this spring and bring more joy into your life.
Fallen into a funk? Turn off the noise, former First Lady Michelle Obama advised as she shared strategies for coping with depression on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" Tuesday, CNBC reported.
Obama, 57, shared that she takes breaks from reading things that fuel her anxiety and surrounds herself "with things that make me feel good: family, friends, walks [and] exercise." Her simple, sensible solution is a return to pre-pandemic behavior that can yield quick, dramatic results.
It’s also important to make and stick to a daily routine, experts advise; they provide predictability and foster feelings of calm, stability, and a sense of normalcy, MSN reports. And an important aspect of your routine, of course, is your beauty regimen.
Handcrafted all-natural, certified organic products by Yoto & Claire can help revitalize your spirits as well as your skin and hair. Make it a habit to nourish and moisturize your skin daily with the unique beauty line’s Cocoa Body Butter or Shea Body Butter. Bring shine and vitality back to your hair naturally with Essential Hair Cream, Repair and Strengthen Hair Cream, and Silky Moisturizing Hair Cream. Hands dry from constantly washing and sanitizing them; care for and moisturize them with Yoto & Claire’s pure and gentle hand soap and hand cream.
Committing to healthier habits – prioritizing sleep, a good diet, proper hydration and daily exercise as well as uplifting beauty routines with Yoto & Claire products – can put the spring back in your step and banish the blues as they enhance your natural beauty.
Here’s to a new and improved you and a beautiful spring and summer.
Small changes in your daily routine that can make a big difference include motivating yourself to move while you work from home, recalibrating your hydration in warmer months, and the improvements you can expect to see seeing in your skin and hair, as well as increasing your energy level.

MSN on routines:
Former First Lady Michelle Obama opened up about the strategies that help her cope with depression during an interview with CBS' "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" Tuesday.
MO: "Over the course of your adulthood, you develop your own tools," Obama, 57, said. "And for me, it’s turning off the noise that is upsetting." She said she takes breaks from "reading all the feeds that are fueling my anxiety."
"I surround myself with things that make me feel good: family, friends, walks [and] exercise," she told Colbert.
Particularly during the pandemic when everyone’s lives are disrupted, keeping a consistent schedule is also helpful, Obama said. "I woke up, I took a shower, I worked out, I got dressed every day," she said. "There wasn’t a day that went by that I didn’t do that because it’s just the doing that gets you out of the funk."
