Cracked and calloused heels can be unsightly, painful and can lead to other health conditions. So let’s get them gone and keep them away! Here’s how:
1) Soak, Soak, Soak
Prepare a nice warm, edging on hot, foot bath. Make sure the water comes up to your ankles.Add a little Body Bliss lotion to the water. Soak your feet for at least 15 minutes.
Now it’s time to exfoliate! Hold your provided heel exfoliator at a 30 to 90 degree angle to your heel and exfoliate until all the dead skin is off.If you are severely calloused you may need to soak a second time, and exfoliate, to do a clean sweep.
3) Moisture Treatment
Apply a generous layer of Body Bliss Lotion to your heals, cover with the foot bags provided, and put on a clean pair of cotton socks (that come up to your ankle or higher). Leave all items on overnight.
4) Morning Moisture
Right after your morning shower apply a generous layer of Body Bliss Lotion, followed by cotton socks. This daily regime will go a long way to maintaining your heal health.
Depending on how active ( how many hours a day you are on your feet) you are, you can repeat this full process either weekly, by weekly, or at an absolute minimum monthly.
6) Daily Care
Apply a generous layer of Body Bliss Lotion to your heels every morning after your shower and every evening before bed (allow to absorb completely before hitting the sheets, or for extra holding power wear a clean pair of ankle socks to bed).
7) Seasonal Extras
In the summer months, with increased bare feet and sandals, weekly versus bi weekly or monthly treatments will be necessary. The daily morning and evening moisture application are even more important then as well.
No matter what the season be sure to get your 8-10 glasses of water in per day to give your body the hydration it needs. Remember for each caffeinated bevy 1 glass of water is just to break even, then your 8-10 glasses start after that.
