IT was Leonardo da Vinci who stated that “the human foot is a masterpiece of engineering and a work of art.” When it came to matters of structure and beauty, few could match the renaissance genius’s eye. He knew the foot was nature’s ultimate sculpture.

Da Vinci was right. Everything our feet do confirms them as a marvel of engineering. This network of nerves, muscles, and blood vessels, all working in unison, helps us walk, stand, balance, and run. They contain a quarter of all the bones in human body.

Valentine’s Day is one occasion when we consider our feet a little more. Whatever we’re doing – date night, cosy night in, restaurant booked – we want to make sure we are prepared from top to toe.

Let’s get the basics right. Make sure nails are nicely filed with no rough edges. Dead skin or calluses are a definite turn off and Valentine’s Day is a great reminder that now is time to address such issues. With very little effort they can be remedied

More than anything, this is a day for pampering. How about a foot massage for your partner? Dr Anders’ Nourishing Daily Therapy is a foot therapy oil perfect for massaging into the feet. A velvety-soft lightweight oil, it is immediately absorbed to nourish and restore the skin.

Masterpieces, as da Vinci noted, need to be nurtured and feet are no different. They don’t ask for much love but they need to be appreciated.

Wherever you are in life, there is one thing you can always rely on to give you support. So when it comes to sending a message of love this Valentine’s Day, how about sending one to your feet?

They’re the best companions you’ll ever have.
