What are Dry Feet?
Dry Feet are patches of very dry or flaky skin that can feel rough to the touch. Another form of dry skin are Calluses which require more moisturising to keep them supple. The symptoms of dry feet can be irritating and include rough cracked skin, itching, flaking and burning sensations.
Causes of Dry Feet
Dry feet are a common condition caused by a lack of oil glands to keep the skin supple and hydrated. This causes the feet to be a much drier part of our bodies. Another cause of dry feet is from standing for long periods of time, as this can develop Calluses, which are your body’s natural protection against constant pressure.
Treatment for Dry Feet
To treat dry feet, ensure you have a good foot care routine. Wash your feet daily with soapy water and dry your feet thoroughly afterwards. Use a good foot cream, balm or ointment to moisturise the area and keep it hydrated and supple. Be sure to lock in this moisture overnight by wearing a pair of quality pamper socks.
Next is to look at your shoes and foot care. If you experience any rubbing or pinching or because your shoes are too tight, dispose of them and look for better fitting footwear such as Simply Feet men's and women's footwear range.
