Everything you need to know and moisture-intense products your feet deserve
It’s so easy to forget your feet. Honestly, nobody really likes to talk about it.
You pamper and take extra care of your face, neck, and chest. You always moisturize your hands. You never forget your arms and legs or to exfoliate.
But why don’t we show our feet the same love and attention?
Why Do You Have Dry Feet in the First Place?
Unlike other parts of your body, the skin on your feet has no oil glands. Instead, it depends on thousands of sweat glands to stay moisturized.
And when you don’t properly moisturize your feet? You end up with extremely dry, cracked heels! It can also worsen to become itchy, red, and painful.
This discomfort from having dry feet can cause flaking, peeling patches, and cuts. You know you have extremely dry and cracked feet when the ball of the heels and sides look white, rough, and scaly.
The skin on the feet is naturally dry. So, taking hot showers and baths with harsh, stripping soaps makes it worse. Dry air, cold weather, and prolonged sun exposure may also aggravate it.
So how do you get rid of old, dead skin and restore your feet to a fabulous feel?
Tips to Fix and Heal Dry, Cracked Feet like a Pro
Having scaly, dry feet is very unaesthetic and can be embarrassing. But you don’t have to feel ashamed and further neglect your sore feet.
Instead, use these simple steps and tips to keep dry feet at bay and rehydrate rough, cracked heels. They work great if you haven’t indulged in a pedicure for a while or shown your heels some TLC:
Keep your foot-care game on point by starting out with a revitalizing and detoxifying foot bath. You can soak your feet to relieve any muscle aches and soothe sores.
Our Invigorating Botanical Foot Soak is an incredible treatment to get baby-soft feet. It helps reduce swelling by promoting circulation. And it also offers antibacterial and disinfectant properties, while healing the skin.
To get the most benefits out of this natural treatment:
You should also show some love to your toenails. Try Toe and Nail Anti-Fungal Oil to keep your nails free from fungal infections.
Take a few seconds during your bath or shower time to scrap off those pesky rough patches of dry skin.
When you cultivate the habit of removing dry skin in your daily beauty and hygiene routine, it prevents those cracks from forming. But make sure you replace harsh soaps that strip moisture from the skin.
Opt for a gentle, hydrating all-natural body cleanser like our range of hydrating body wash.
Remember, hot water strips moisture from the skin. So if you’re battling with cracked, flaky heels, soaking in a hot tub or standing under a scalding hot shower is an all-around bad idea.
It only makes it worse so, do yourself a favor and use warm water instead.
This sounds simple, but most times, you skip your feet even when lotioning your skin after a shower. For some people, moisturizing ends at the ankles.
Always extend love to every inch of your body, especially the tops, sides, and bottoms of your feet. This is one sure-fire way of preventing dry, cracked heels. It will help make your skin feet softer and prevent buildup or rough patches.
If your heels are in really terrible shape, generously apply a moisture-rich product like the Lemon-Mint Foot Balm. It has a buttery texture that deeply hydrates your skin without leaving behind that greasy, sticky feeling.
The balm is formulated with ultra-hydrating ingredients to maintain optimal moisture levels. Take this treatment up a notch by slipping on a pair of natural fiber socks.
After applying a generous dab to your feet, gently massage it in and wear your socks. The heat allows the balm to sink into the skin and prevents dryness or itching. Regular overnight treatment will restore a soft, smooth look and feel to your skin.
