When the temperature drops and the air becomes dry, so can your skin. So, bear in mind the effects of winter on skin and how to combat them to ensure your skin stays soft and glowing year round.
Protect from dryness
Your face may take the full brunt of winter's cooler temperatures but your feet aren't immune to the cold. Wintry weather can cause the natural oils found in your skin to evaporate and since your feet are naturally drier than other areas of the body, they can really suffer during the cold months.
Make sure you prevent dry skin on your feet with an application of foot cream each morning to seal in the moisture and prevent skin becoming dehydrated. Try Amopé™ Pedi Perfect™ Daily Moisturizer Foot Cream, which is perfect to quickly apply before getting dressed – it quickly absorbs into your skin and provides feet with moisture for up to 24 hours.
Tackle hard skin
If you get a buildup of hard skin and calluses on your heels, don't just hide your feet away in thick socks and very warm winter boots, thinking you can deal with the problem in spring. A combination of chilly weather one minute and central heating the next can really dry out your feet, making those calluses and hard skin even more dehydrated.
At worst, the dry skin on your feet can develop into cracked heels, which can make walking painful. Take action before this happens by regularly removing hard skin with a foot file. Amopé™ Pedi Perfect™ Electronic Foot File with Diamond Crystals™ is ideal for removing hard skin in minutes as the roller head with microgranulates works at the touch of a button, helping you buff away hard skin easily and quickly.
Follow this with an application of specially formulated foot cream, such as Amopé™ Pedi Perfect™ Daily Moisturizer Foot Cream that leaves feet soft and nourished and provides moisture for up to 24 hours.
Try a night-time routine
Don't have time in the morning to tackle dry skin on your feet? No problem. Nighttime can also be great to counter the effects of winter on your skin. Even if your feet aren't looking dry and parched, starting a nightly foot care routine helps to keep dry skin at bay. Wash your feet first – you could try a relaxing foot soak to nourish, cleanse and smooth. Then, follow this with a foot cream that's formulated to prevent dry skin on the feet. Amopé™ Pedi Perfect™ Extra Rich Skin Recovery Foot Cream is ideal for cold winter evenings as it provides moisture and supports your skin’s hydration throughout the night. Just massage it into your feet, then put on some cotton bed socks, not only to stop your feet getting cold but to also help the moisture penetrate deeper into your feet. You'll wake each morning with smooth feet, ready to face the day.
