Foot care: How to achieve perfect feet?

Cracked and dry heels have become commonplace for many women. But not everyone knows how important it is to keep track of this. When you touch the heel of a silk blanket or the legs of your man, do you feel how gently it glides on the surface? We talked with a podologist to find out how to care for your skin at home.

- Why is the skin on the heels so dry and how to deal with dryness?

- First of all, we need to distinguish between cosmetic and medical problems. If you suffer from painful cracks in the heels, you need to take tests and check the condition of vitamins and the body. If you have moderate dry foot, which is removed with pumice and cream, you just need to choose the right daily care. Our heels have sweat glands but do not have sebaceous glands. That is why this part of the skin does not support hydration on its own. To keep your heels silky, you need to take care of them every day.

- What rituals can be performed for this?

- Use already known methods: foot baths with sea salt, scrubs, pumice and intensively moisturizing cream. You can use shower oil in the morning to moisturize your feet. In the evening, use foot cream and put on special socks. Use pumice and scrubs 1-2 times a week.

- How to avoid foot fungus?

- To do this, it’s enough to follow simple hygiene rules: use only personal hygiene products, be sure to wear rubber slippers in the gym, pool and any places where you can contact with traces of other people's feet. Change socks daily and wear comfortable shoes that allow your skin to breathe. Use shoe sprays that remove germs and moisture. Watch the pedicure: be sure to clean and trim your nails in a timely manner.

- Which is better, pumice or scrub?

- This means with varying degrees of intensity. You should use pumice at least 1 time per week, and then use a scrub (1-2 times a week). Pumice will remove the keratinized layer of skin, and the scrub will gently clean out the remains. Be sure to use a moisturizer or foot musk after this.

- Do I need to do professional pedicures in the salon?

- If you notice a disease like a foot fungus, you should definitely visit a podologist who will make you the right pedicure. This also applies to ingrown nails. If you do not have problems with nails or feet, you can do it both professionally and independently. It is important that you follow the technique and not make your nails grow. You can also achieve professional cleaning of the heels of the house with the help of natural products: scrubs and oil-based sea salt, moisturizing foot cream and foot masks.
