CCS Foot Care Cream Product Review and Summer Footcare tips
Footcare is one of those unsexy subjects we all like to avoid. Yes, we all want butter soft heels, but we don't like to talk about the c words- calluses, corns and crustiness. CCS Footcare cream may not help with medical issues like corns (see a trained chiropodist- I recommend Margaret Dabbs, amazing lady) but will help soften those feet.
I've been using the CCS Footcare cream religiously every evening, rubbing it on and popping on some socks. My feet were immediately softer the next day and after a week of use were a lot smoother overall and felt nice to touch. One of the reasons this is so effective is because it contains urea which keeps moisture in the skin and leaves the foot smooth and reduces all the cracking. A summer must have- think of those flip flop feet!
Emma Supple,chiropodist has some tips for you.
What is the best way to alleviate cracked heels?
Cracked skin on the heels of the feet is caused by excessively dry skin. For heels in particularly bad condition, use the CCS Heel Balm twice daily for seven days and see a notable difference in the condition of your skin; your heels will be softer and more supple and ready to take on the day. To prevent this hard skin from building up again, scrub or exfoliate your feet a couple of times a week.
Going on a last minute holiday...What is the best way to get supple feet in time?
'A daily foot care regime will help to get your feet looking ship-shape - combine this with your everyday beauty routine, to make life easier. Use a foot scrub or exfoliator to gently remove hard skin in the shower and prevent a fungal build up. Dry your feet thoroughly and apply CCS Foot Care Cream to condition the feet. Doing this daily, will notably change the condition of your toes! To perfect your pedicure for holiday, trim your toenails by cutting straight across the nail and follow its natural shape. Paint your nails and make sure you use a base coat before-hand, to protect the nail from the colour bleeding into it. Then, apply a top coat to stop the varnish smudging.
What should I bear in mind when buying shoes in summer?
'In the summer time, feet tend to swell because of heat. I would suggest buying summer shoes or sandals in a slightly larger size to allow for this. Opt for a natural material, such as leather, as this will allow skin to breathe and keep the feet at a comfortable temperature. This reduction of sweat/moisture will prevent the bacterial build-up that causes smelly feet and infections. CCS Foot Care Cream is another natural product that will act as a preventative measure. CCS keeps feet soft and supple and will work with the body's natural defences to condition the feet, helping to prevent excess moisture, and maintain an evenly replenished epidermis.
