Get Rid Of Those Dry Cracked Feet!
Boot season and the harsh winter weather can take a huge toll on our feet causing dry cracked feet. Taking care of dry feet and toes during the winter season is crucial – cold weather, damp socks and the dramatic temperature change from indoor heating to outdoor Upstate New York weather can lead to cracked skin, fungal infections, “winter heels,” and even frostbite. Our Master Pedicurists have compiled their top tips and products to ensure your feet stay happy and healthy all winter long.
Use The Right Products
Let’s be honest, sometimes hydrating shea butter just isn’t enough for dry winter feet and cracked heels! Here at Complexions we carry a professional foot care line called Footlogix. Their line was specifically designed to address multiple foot conditions like callused skin, cracked heels, toenail fungus, and even diabetic foot care. You can shop the full line of Footlogix products directly on our website. Two of our favorite products are the Cracked Heel formula and the Very Dry Skin formula. Both are easy to use and produce results in just a few uses. Another wonderful product by Footlogix is their lightweight DD Cream, which is infused with urea and spiraleen to soothe dry skin.
Change Out Of Damp Socks
One of the biggest causes of fungus on the feet is not removing damp socks after a long day at work or hitting the slopes. The continued exposure to moisture is a breeding ground for bacteria. The same thing goes with shoes – if your shoes are still wet from shoveling snow or skiing, opt for a dry pair.
