Our feet are a vital part of our everyday life. For many of us we can be on them 6 to 10 hours every single day, and more often than not they go unloved and forgotten. Left out of any of our usual beauty and health rituals, we suffer from poor quality deflated and dry skin as a result.
Few realise it takes a small amount of time and effort to save tired and neglected feet from many of the most common foot ailments. That’s why we developed the ivee Exfoliating Sock-style Mask, to combat your foot woes and give you baby soft feet all year round.
The soles of your feet go through a lot. They can find themselves dehydrated, rough and cracked. The warmer summer months or rubbing of your shoes can leave your feet flaky and dry, and the resulting cracked skin should be treated quickly before fissures split and cause unnecessary pain.
Dry skin can easily be prevented through exfoliation of dead cells and application of deep penetrating moisturisers. With ingredients like aloe vera and papaya extracts restore hydration, it leaves you with lovely soft feet.
Smelly feet can affect anyone, but just like dry skin it can be prevented. The culprit of course is sweat.
It moistens the skin and regulates temperature. However, unlike the sweat glands in the rest of your body, in your feet they secrete ALL THE TIME. Feet smell when bacteria on the skin break down the sweat and dead skin cells, the more sweat or bacteria, the worse the smell.
You can fight this through simple good hygiene. It’s important to thoroughly wash and dry your feet, and always wear fresh socks. Removal of old dead skin through exfoliation will also greatly help reduce bad odours.
Callouses and Hard Skin
Callouses are areas of hard and thickened skin that often appear yellowish. They are very common and can cause discomfort and even pain when you walk. They develop from excessive and repeated friction of the skin against something hard, and are often a product of poorly fitting shoes.
Prevention can be as simple as changing your footwear and avoiding walking barefoot on hard surfaces. Of course as always, exfoliation is key as it fights the problem at the source and removes dead skin before it builds up.
So there we have it. DO NOT forget, the key to good foot health is to exfoliate and moisturise.
If you suffer from any of the above, Ivee Exfoliating Sock Style Foot Mask roll these solutions into one. Give us a try and be proud of your feet this summer, let us take your feet on an adventure!
