3 Neglected Parts of Your Body That Need Some TLC #collaborativepost

How well do you care for your body? While many people like to think they are healthy and look after their bodies well, there will always be parts of the body that are overlooked and in some need of TLC. In fact, these body parts often only get attention when something is wrong, or you notice some issues.

If you are looking to improve your health, you need to make sure you are giving attention to the following parts of your body.


Your feet are one part of your body that is under a lot of stress and pressure at all times and are one of your most used body parts. They are instrumental in many bodily functions and actions; if neglected, they can be a source of problems and pain.

Feet problems can include odor, blisters, dry skin, flat feet, hammertoes, ingrown toenails, and more. Plus, pain in your feet can also be an indicator of diabetes too. Some top tips for caring for your feet include visiting a foot doctor, ensuring they are clean and dry at times, inspecting them for cuts, bruises, and changes to the skin or color, daily moisturizing, trimming nails, and removing hard skin.


The condition of your hands can give a lot away about your lifestyle and how well you care for your body. It's all good and well having a good facial skincare regime in place, but if you neglect your hands, they will give away your age and experience many issues you are likely trying to avoid on your face, from dark spots, thinning, papery skin, and wrinkles.

Good hand care tips include;

  • Wearing gloves when using chemicals or harsh items that can damage the skin, such as dish scrubbers, handling rough materials, and continuous washing or water contact.

  • Wash regularly; using a gentle but effective hand wash that can support your skin will give you better skin health and cleaner hands.

  • Moisturizer is essential for replenishing any moisture lost through daily activities. Using hand moisturizer as part of your daily skincare routine can help you to improve the health of your hands and help you to identify any health issues, changes to your nails, and more.


The issue with elbows is commonly "out of sight, out of mind." As you don't necessarily see your elbows unless you look in a mirror, it can be easy to overlook care for them. Painful elbows can indicate an injury or chronic condition such as arthritis, while dry skin can be sore and uncomfortable to live with. Dry elbows can indicate a buildup of dead skin cells or be a result of medications, for example, so it's essential you give your elbows some TLC daily.

If you have a daily moisturizing habit, then you are likely covering your elbows as part of your arm care. Still, if you aren't, then you need to ensure you moisturize your elbows after showering or before bed and check them every week at least to identify any changes in texture or color. You can remove any buildup you find by using gentle exfoliators and ensuring property hydration in this area.

These areas of your body are ones that are often overlooked when it comes to self-care or body and health maintenance. Take some time, have a full body MOT, and get your whole body looking and feeling good.

8 Packing Hacks When Moving

Moving is almost rarely enjoyable. I mean, you have to pack up all your stuff just to unpack it again somewhere else? You eat off of paper plates with plastic utensils for your last week because you know your kitchen takes the most to pack. You shift boxes around for weeks while you try and continue living in your home. It’s just not fun. Certain things can make it more enjoyable or at least easier, however. For instance, if you have found a great apartment for rent center city or similar, then you might find that this takes the sting out somewhat. However, there will still be things you need to bear in mind to ensure that you can do it right. The fun comes on the other end when you get to unpack and decorate somewhere new!
