Besides the cold winter brings us dry skin and it seems to affect our feet and hands the most.
Today we’re going to concentrate on taking care of your feet which can become severely dry, scaly or cracked. This can be painful too!
You can treat your rough, dry feet on your own using at-home care and over-the-counter remedies.
Put your best foot forward with the 5 steps below on how to repair rough dry feet.
Soak your feet in warm water for 20 minutes every night before going to bed.
Slather your feet in petroleum jelly immediately after soaking them in warm water, then place a pair of cotton socks on your feet before going to bed. The petroleum jelly will help seal in moisture while you sleep.
Personally I have found this Savex Foot Salve to be a lifesaver. I’ve been using it for years (which if you watch the video you’ll see just how young I was once!). Visit Here for your special price and to read the reviews!.
Place a humidifier in your room while you sleep. When a humidifier is filled with water, it releases the water as vapor through the air, which is absorbed by the skin.
Use warm or cool water in the shower instead of hot water, which may be removing the moisture from your skin and making your feet feel dry.
Wash your feet with a mild soap that contains oils and fats. If your skin feels tight after showering, switch to a soap that contains moisturizers and makes your skin feel soft instead.
