A guide to getting perfectly pampered feet
Keeping toes trim and heels hydrated can be no easy feat (sorry, we had to go there!). What many people don’t know is that you have to get tough on dry foot skin because the damage goes far deeper than dry skin on other areas of the body. After all, we use our feet to transport us everywhere - it’s little wonder they need a dose of TLC sometimes! So what kinds of products should you be looking out for when on a mission to banish dry skin? There are plenty of foot creams, foot crack creams, foot lotions, foot scrubs and foot treatments on the market - which will best suit you? Let’s break it down...
If your heels are cracking, you’ll want to look out for foot care products that contain high moisture levels, for example, foot crack creams. These are best used after a warm bath when your skin is at its most supple. They intensely target dry skin to rid the appearance of cracks. As foot care creams go, they’re some of the most intensive products - a great place to start if your skin is in a bad way.
Heel smoothing cream
For skin that’s not yet cracking but is showing signs of wear and tear, you might want to look into heel smoothing creams. These are great for your foot treatment routine and ensure that fast-acting formula is received where it’s needed most. You’ll be feeling light-footed in no time!
Not only do foot scrubs aim to tackle dry skin, they’re a lot of fun and feel fantastic. Using tiny beads of grain or coconut shell (avoid plastic-based products to help the environment), these particles are gently abrasive against dry skin to break it down over a series of uses. If you don’t yet have a foot scrub in your collection, make that change today...
Essential oil products
Looking for a little luxury from your foot cream? You’ll find plenty of products in the Sephora range enriched with coconut oil, peppermint and shea butter. Not only will they tackle dry skin, they’ll also battle cracked heels for feet you can be proud of. Foot crack cream and foot lotions both include luxury ingredients such as these - what are you waiting for?
