The Importance of Skincare for Feet
Whether you are getting ready for the summer weather and walking bare feet on the beach or being able to soak your feet in a hot tub in the middle of winter, you need to have a quality foot care routine. Taking care of your feet ensures that you can feel comfortable walking around anywhere you like, looking good and feeling good.
That is just one of the reasons that Roots & Bloom is dedicated to providing high quality foot care products that reduce cracks, lines, and any other forms of dryness. This is something that is important to women but many men as well. Based upon what we’ve seen, there are plenty of men who really appreciate having soft, moisturized, and healthy-looking feet too.
Why is Foot Care Is Important?
Foot care is vitally important because we all rely extensively on our feet to get from point A to point B or to go anywhere, for that matter. When there are too many cracks along the heels or sides of your feet from dryness or other ailments, you can end up feeling pain with each and every step—not a good thing.
Without the proper use of creams or other skincare products, you run the risk of bacterial growth in and around the areas where the skin is cracking. Take a step outside in your bare feet with a few cracks along your heel, and you can potentially expose yourself to microbes that can get in and cause viral, bacterial, and fungal infections.
Then there is just the aesthetic side of it. Using some sort of rich buttery cream foot moisturizer can prevent that uncomfortable feeling of having your dry cracked feet catch on the bed sheets or blankets. Worse yet, it can help you avoid disrupting those intimate moments when you are rubbing your feet against your partner who does not exactly like the way they feel. Having smooth, beautiful soft feet that are in healthy condition is about making you feel good and giving you that extra boost of self-confidence.
Foot Health & Skincare Products
Fortunately, it does not have to take a lot of work to keep your feet healthy and in good condition. However, you also don’t want to rely too much on soap or shower gels because while they clean, they can also remove the protective oily layer of your skin. A few helpful tips would be the following:
- Wear socks whenever you can. We all like the feeling of walking around in bare feet on fresh grass, but sometimes wearing socks or hosiery can protect your feet just enough to prevent harmful scratches or dryness.
- Be sure to integrate a buttery or creamy foot moisturizing product into your foot care regimen. We recommend applying something specifically designed for your feet and not for the rest of your body. This is because foot creams tend to be formulated specifically to deal with excessive dryness.
- Be sure to use a small amount of moisturizer in regular increments throughout the week. Even a pea-sized amount, used once a day will do wonders for your overall foot care. We recommend applying any cream sparingly in-between the toes because these areas tend to hold moisture and can therefore lead to fungal infections.
- If things continue to get a little out of hand and you have deeper cracks that are not healing from moisturizing foot creams, then you may want to seek out the professional advice of a podiatrist.
