Treat Your Feet with Aquaphor and a Giveaway!

Press Sample

 

Sandal season is just around the corner and I LOVE getting pedicures. Unfortunately a shellac pedi runs about $50 where I live and that makes a weekly pedi cost prohibitive for me. So…..I have gotten into the habit of doing it myself! I’ve enlisted the help of Aquaphor to help get my tootsies ready for their spring debut.

If your feet are still carrying the burden of the dry, winter season, you’re not alone. After the dry, harsh winter, my feet are look like something a Yeti would be ashamed of. Dry cracked heels are not attractive in strappy sandals.  Indoor heat and the harsh winter elements dry out your skin due to the lack of humidity in the air. When skin gets really dry it can break open and crack. Most of us are good at keeping our skin moisturized, but we often neglect our feet, out of sight, out of mind. This can lead to cracked heels that include dark or yellowing skin, calluses and flaky patches of skin, all things you want to be rid of before slipping into this season’s stylish sandals.

Using the proper technique and products is crucial for a smooth transition into sandal season and Aquaphor is here to help with these three easy steps:

• Step 1: Soak

Your feet get the most use and abuse. Take 10-20 minutes every few weeks to pamper them in a soak of lukewarm water with a few drops of gentle liquid soap. Try out our sister brands: Eucerin Gentle Hydrating Cleanser. Soaking your feet helps to soften the skin and will make the next step easier.

• Step 2: Exfoliate

Once the skin on your feet has been softened from the soak, dip a pumice stone into the water and rub it lightly back-and-forth across the rough patches on your feet for about 30 seconds. Dip the pumice stone back in the water and repeat on the other foot. When finished, dip both feet back in the water to remove the excess skin.

• Step 3: Moisturize

Now that you’ve softened your feet and removed some of the dead skin, it’s important that you properly moisturize the new layers of skin that have been exposed. Apply a generous amount of Aquaphor Healing Ointment, cover your feet with plush socks and sleep in them overnight. You’ll love the way your feet feel in the morning and will vow to make this a part of your regular routine!  Aquaphor Healing Ointment protects dry, cracked or irritated skin to help enhance the natural healing process and restore smooth, healthy skin. This stiff is seriously amazing! It melts into your skin and provides DEEP hydration–love it! Dermatologist-trusted product that is fragrance-free, preservative-free, non-irritating and ideal for sensitive skin.
