Between winter boots, nights out on the dance floor, and the occasional morning jog, it’s fair to say that our feet certainly get exposed to the elements. No matter the lifestyle, dry skin is a very common complaint, especially when it comes to feet. The skin on your feet is more susceptible to the effects of dry air, because it has fewer oil glands than the skin found on other parts of the body . Luckily, it doesn’t take rocket science to treat dry skin on feet. In fact, a simple daily moisturizing routine could be on your way to having smooth, fresh-feeling feet, along with the confidence to show them off.
The Importance of Moisture
When it comes to dry skin, again it’s important to stay hydrated. This is where a quality moisturizer comes in. Intense foot creams are absorbed by the skin, helping it to retain its own natural water in the outermost layer. It also acts as an extra barrier, protecting your skin from the elements. Nourishing ingredients such as Vitamins A and E, found in Amopé Pedi Perfect™ Daily Moisturizer Foot Cream, are great combatants for treating dry skin. Creams can be used regularly, after a foot scrub, or just after a shower, to keep your skin rehydrated, and soft for longer. You could even use Amopé Pedi Perfect™ Extra Rich Skin Recovery Foot Cream in conjunction as an overnight cream, to wake up to smooth, soft results!
What may look like dry skin can actually be the formation of excess dead skin on the surface of our feet. Before applying your moisturizer, why not give yourself a real spa treatment in the comforts of your own home by using an exfoliator such as the Amopé Pedi Perfect™ Electronic Foot File to shed that dry skin. For the best results, apply either of the moisturizing cream immediately after .
No more Hibernation
It can be tempting to ignore our feet during the winter months, while our feet are cozy in layers of socks and winter boots. Showing off your feet might not be very tempting at this time of the year. However, if you ignore the presence of dry skin throughout this time, you’ll be back where you started when the season for sandals and heels come around! Why not try to give your feet some attention and care during the winter months, and you’ll be prepared for the first trip to the beach in summer.
Don’t Buff too Hard
While exfoliation is a great way to tackle dry skin, it’s important not to scrub your skin too hard. Any nicks and raw skin can take a while to heal, and scrubbing too hard might even cause an infection. It’s better to scrub lightly on a weekly basis, than to overdo it in one go.
Keeping your Feet Dry after Care
This may seem like strange advice, when you are faced with dry skin, but keeping your skin away from damp conditions is very important to your skin’s health. While it’s important to moisturize, wearing damp socks and shoes, or not drying your feet thoroughly is counterproductive. There’s no need to fret over dry skin on feet anymore. Introduce a simple moisturizing routine and follow these few practical tips, to keep your feet looking soft and healthy, and ready to hit the streets.
