How To Get the Most Out of a Foot Cream?
Feet play a major role in our lives. They carry us to places day in day out, supporting every activity we engage in. Surprisingly, to many, this is the most ignored part of the body.
The skin on our heels is unique in that it tends to suffer from excessive dryness, and when not taken care of can lead to cracking. We can both agree that your feet deserve better! By using a good foot cream, you can the avoid the ocurrence of dryness and visible cracks on your heels.
Today we are sharing some tips on how you can effectively make use of a good foot cream ensuring that you’re getting the most out of it.
Start By Washing Your Feet
Washing your feet with soap and clean water will ensure the removal of dust and dirt around the toes and sole. Make sure you concentrate on the area in between the toes and be sure to remove all dirt around the foot.
Alternatively, you can soak them in soapy lukewarm water for ten to fifteen minutes to help clean. This will also allow your feet to relax after a long tiring day.
Get Rid of Dead Skin
In most cases, cracked heels also have a thick layer of dead skin. Therefore, it is important to exfoliate your feet at least twice a week. We recommend using a pumice stone to gently do away with the dead dry skin. Exfoliating will ensure that the ingredients from your foot repair serum of choice can actively interact with the layers of skin on your feet without hindrance. We recommend using our foot repair serum which features Vitamin B3 to deeply nourish and restore your skin’s moisture. In addition, our serum contains soothing aloe vera, rich avocado oil and organic neem to soften, smoothen and tone your feet. Odds are with a little more care; your feet will heal and regain their smooth soft feel sooner rather than later.
Apply An Effective Foot Cream
The next step is to massage a rich foot cream into your feet, using some compression and moving in a circular manner. Often time with cream moisturizers, less is more so start by applying the foot cream in small amounts, to ensure that there is little or no waste of the cream.
A high-quality foot cream renders the best results and promotes faster healing. For instance, Roots & Bloom’s foot cream for dry skin is a great foot cream for especially dry feet. It contains quality ingredients such as Shea Butter, Avocado Oil, Jojoba Seed Oil, and Rosehip Seed Oil which are all sourced naturally, making it very user-friendly for most skin types.
Cover Your Feet
Lastly, after applying the foot cream, we recommend keeping your feet or heels covered with shoes and/or socks. Why is this so important? Covering your feet, helps to seal in that added moisture and to maintain and support healthy feet.
In conclusion, the feet are one of the most used, active parts of your body. Hence, consistently taking care of them is as important as taking care of your face.
