Proper care of the skin of the feet should smooth, refresh and moisturise it. Thanks to various technological solutions and the availability of many active ingredients, achieving these effects is not difficult. The keratolytic effect of urea in the appropriate concentration or fruit complexes rich in AHA acids in preparations such as exfoliating socks or creams will smooth the skin of the feet. Mists rich in plant extracts, essential oils or specialized odour neutralizers can be responsible for refreshment. Moisturising the feet can be achieved by using creams or masks rich in oils (e.g. avocado, sweet almonds) and butters (e.g. mango, shea, cocoa) and specialized ingredients.
What if we are struggling with a podiatry problem and traditional care is not enough?
Onycholysis, calluses, corns, diabetic foot or ingrown toenail are just some of the podological diseases. Most of them are disease entities that require specialist consultation and properly selected treatment. But can cosmetics also be helpful and effective for such problems?
