Is Dry Skin on the Feet a Problem?
Yes! Certainly, rough, scratchy, dry skin on the feet is unsightly and uncomfortable, but it’s more than just a nuisance. If left unchecked, extremely dry feet skin can result in serious health consequences for many people, especially for individuals with diabetes who frequently lack adequate blood flow to the extremities, making the skin on the feet dry and frail.
How can a little dry feet skin lead to serious consequences? Dry skin on the feet promotes micro-tears (small openings in the skin) which impact the skin’s ability to perform its main function: protection. Untreated, dry skin on the feet can potentially lead to bacterial, fungal or viral infections which can result in open, slow-to-heal lesions or, in severe cases, foot amputation or even death. In order to properly protect the feet from bacteria, fungi or viruses, feet must be healthy, hydrated and callus and crack-free.
Treating Dry Skin on the Feet
To properly treat dry skin on the feet, it’s particularly important to use dry skin remedies that deeply penetrate thick callused, dry skin and add moisture, not oil, to dry feet. Effective dry feet remedies may also contain ingredients to treat underlying issues (such as athlete’s foot) which can present as dry skin. Fortunately, Footlogix® has developed an extensive line of moisturizing foot care products that hydrate and restore extremely dry skin on the feet, without occluding or impeding the natural functions of the skin.
The most effective way to treat dry skin on the feet is to start with a professional Footlogix pedicure. During the pedicure, the pedicurist will soak dry feet, use a stainless steel file to remove dead skin (if necessary), and apply the right Footlogix® moisturizing formula for your needs. After the pedicure, the pedicurist will recommend the right Footlogix dry skin remedies to use at home. Most people will see and feel an improvement in their dry feet skin in only a week of regular use. In fact, Footlogix® dry skin remedies are so effective, that explains why Footlogix® is the foot care brand of choice in salons and spas in over seventy countries!
