What Is The Best Moisturiser For Your Feet?

Feet are often underappreciated, especially considering that they keep us moving every single day. However, with them being so overworked, it’s not uncommon for tired feet to become dry and sore, leaving them desperate for some pampering. We’ve already guided you through how to remove calluses from home, so this time we’re discussing the benefits of moisturising your feet and what is the best foot moisturiser for your feet…

Why Should You Keep Your Feet Moisturised?

If you don’t keep your feet moisturised, they can become dry and cracked incredibly easy. From there, calluses can build up a lot more quickly. Not only that, dryness is the main cause of skin integrity breaches. When the skin is dry, the oily layer which protects your skin from microbial entry isn’t intact. As you walk, microbes will naturally press into your skin, especially into the cracks in dry feet. This can cause viral, bacterial and fungal infections. 

How To Care For Your Feet…

There are plenty of steps you can take to ensure that your feet are in their best condition. 

Socks…

Always ensure to wear socks where possible, as when the skin is bare it tends to dry out more quickly. Socks will help to keep moisture and hydration in the skin for longer, resulting in less cracking. 

Daily Maintenance…

A lot of people think that feet can be easily maintained by putting on a bit of moisturiser once a week, however, this won’t cut it. Your feet need daily maintenance to keep them soft, supple and in great condition. Ensuring they are completely dry after showering or bathing and moisturising at least once a day should keep them healthy. 

Foot Specific Moisturiser…

It’s so important to moisturise your feet, but you can’t just use any old moisturiser on them and expect it to work well. Your foot skin is the driest part of your skin, so the moisturiser you use needs to be suitable for that. 

What Foot Creams Do Podiatrists Recommend? 

Recommended by podiatrists and developed with a team of dermatologists, the CeraVe Renewing SA Foot Cream is a great choice of foot cream. Containing hyaluronic acid, salicylic acid and three ceramides, this effective moisturiser exfoliates and smoothes cracked skin. It’s also great for use when removing calluses, providing protection to fresh skin. 

Salicylic acid is a great chemical exfoliant, naturally stripping away the loose skin and leaving a smooth surface. Hyaluronic acid is a gel-like substance which retains water, allowing the skin to become ultimately hydrated.
