Summer is here!!
And with the hotter, longer days, most people take the opportunity to bring their feet out of exile and enjoy the sunshine, the feeling of sand and water in between their toes. This all seems all well and good but with so many advertisements broadcasting well maintained, ‘summer ready’ feet, most people end up asking themselves “Are my feet actually ready for summer?” The truth to that question may be a difficult dawning of reality when people realise that their heels are callouses, cracked or the skin on their feet is dry.
I often see people who come to me for both treatment on their hard and dry feet as well as for advice on what can be done at home to keep them happy and healthy. In order to be able to understand how you can get your feet looking their best it is important to understand some things that may be causing your feet to develop dryness and hard callouses.
It does become very worthwhile to see a podiatrist for help in removing any callouses, reducing splits in the skin and for advice on shoes and moisturising creams suitable for your skin type. Podiatrists are able to determine how much hard skin would need to be removed safely whilst also buffing the skin to make it silky smooth to touch and eye catching to witness in a pair of sandals. Outside of seeking professional guidance, there is a number of things that people can do at home to keep their feet looking good.Foot soaks
