When the temperature drops and the air becomes dry, so can your skin. So, bear in mind the effects of winter on skin and how to combat the effects to ensure your skin stays soft and glowing all year round.
Protect from dryness
Your face may take the full brunt of winter's cooler temperatures, but your feet aren't immune to the cold. Wintry weather can cause the natural oils found in our skin to evaporate, and because our feet are naturally drier than other areas of the body, they can really suffer during the cold months, resulting in dry skin on feet.
Make sure you prevent dry skin on your feet with an application of foot cream each morning to seal in the moisture and prevent skin becoming dehydrated.
Tackle hard skin
If you get a buildup of hard skin on feet and calluses on your heels, don't just hide your feet away in thick socks and warm winter boots, thinking you can deal with the problem during spring. A combination of chilly weather one minute and central heating the next can really dry out your feet, making those calluses and hard skin even more dehydrated.
Worse yet, the dry skin on your feet can develop into cracked heels, which can make walking painful. Take action before this happens by regularly removing hard skin with a foot file. Amopé™ Pedi Perfect™ Wet & Dry Rechargeable Foot File comes with two speeds and can be used on wet or dry skin, leaving you with silky smooth feet.
Follow this with an application of nourishing foot cream, such as Amopé™ Pedi Perfect™ Daily Moisturizer, which absorbs quickly to leave feet soft and smooth.
Try a night-time routine
Don't have time in the morning to tackle dry skin on your feet? No problem. Nighttime can be a great time to counter the effects of winter on your skin. Even if your feet don't look dry and parched, starting a nightly foot care regimen helps to keep dry skin at bay.
Wash your feet first – you could try a relaxing foot soak to nourish, cleanse and smooth. Then, follow with a foot cream that's formulated to prevent dry skin on feet.
Amopé™ Pedi Perfect™ Extra Rich Skin Recovery Cream is ideal for cold winter evenings. Just massage it into your feet, then put on some cotton bed socks. Not only will your feet stay warm, you'll also help the moisture penetrate deeper into your feet. You'll wake each morning with the softest feet, ready to face the day.
