Healthy Feet are Happy Feet

Are you ashamed to take off your shoes? Having heels like sandpaper is no laughing matter.

Your feet are probably the last part of your body that you care about although you depend on it all day. Our feet support tremendous daily pressure for they are the foundation that we stand on, keeping us mobile in our everyday lives. A simple regimen of daily care and cure can help keep your hardworking feet healthy and happy.

Cracked heels have become a common foot problem for many Malaysian women which are caused by extremely dry and calloused skin especially as skin loses its elasticity due to ageing. Cracked heels also referred to as heel fissures, the cracking and splitting of the skin as the skin loses its suppleness and elasticity, it cracks under simple pressures such as that from walking. Other causes of pressures that may attribute to cracked heels are prolonged standing, overweight, pregnancy, lack of support around the heels or even dry climate.

Did you know?

Cracked heels may also be due to natural moisture loss from our feet such as not moisturising our feet enough, dehydration or not drinking enough water, using harsh and dry soap or taking a very hot bath or shower.

Don’t give away your age

You may think it’s no big deal but cracked heels may make you look older than your age. So, for a complete head to toe beauty, to keep old age at bay, show your feet a little love by giving them constant care, hydration and a good heel balm containing urea. Urea is a moisturising agent which helps to nourish the most parched skin surfaces as well as helping to seal up the cracks on skin. Regular use of a good heel balm revives and soothes, resulting in softer, smoother, healthier and younger looking skin.
