Winter is Tough on Feet
Winter can be hard on a body. Dry hair, chapped lips and rough dry skin. I think for many of us, certainly for myself, the effects of winter on our feet may be the worst. All of that cold dry air, and warm dry air from our furnaces or heaters, along with the warmer than usual showers and baths we take in the colder months is tough on skin. When you add in all of those hours in thick socks and boots, not allowing your feet to breathe, well it’s a recipe for dry and cracked feet. We also tend to not take as much care with our feet in the winter than we do in the summer when we are more likely to be wearing open toe shoes and sandals and actually care about how our feet look!
We know we should take better care of our feet. Nobody likes the feeling of that tight dry skin. It’s uncomfortable (even painful) and sometimes itchy. So what can you do to keep your feet looking and feeling good all winter long? Here are a few helpful ideas:
- Try to keep warm as much as possible with clothing and not heaters.
- Try to keep your feet as dry as possible – we feet leads to dry feet!
- I know it’s hard in the winter but try not to bath or shower in water that is too hot since it strips your skin of its natural moisture.
- Drink lots of water! Keeping hydrated from the inside can make a huge difference in your skin’s moisture level.
- Moisturize your feet daily – especially right after the bath or shower and right before bed,
So let’s assume I have convinced you to spend some extra time and attention on your feet – the question remains “What moisturizer should I use?” Walk into a drugstore or pharmacy of your favorite retailer and you are met with shelves stocked full of creams and lotions. It’s not always easy to decide on which one is the right one. Not all moisturizers are created equally. And even a moisturizer that you may love for your hands or body might not be the ideal product for your feet.
Footlogix Medical® Transforms Your Feet
When it comes to caring for your feet, especially in the winter, you are far better off going straight for a product that is designed for that specific purpose. There’s just no point on spending the money on lotions that are not made for the job. The skin on our feet is not the same as the skin on our hands or our arms. It’s tougher and takes more abuse. That’s where Footlogix Medical® comes in. It was designed specifically for the job of taking care of your feet. And I promise you, this is not like any foot cream you have tried before.
The first thing you notice, of course, is that it’s not a cream at all. Footlogix Medical® is actually a mousse. You will also notice right away that this unique mousse is not greasy and, and a very important factor for me; it’s fragrance free. Not only am I highly sensitive to fragrance but I just don’t need my feet to smell like pine trees or candy canes. There’s nothing worse, at the end of the day, when you take off your shoes or boots and your natural odors (yes sweat) has combined with the smell of a sweet or floral foot cream. It’s not pleasant.
Footlogix Medical® is clinically tested and uses pharmaceutical grade ingredients. And what really makes it different from other products is the Dermal Infusion Technology® it uses. Yes those are some fancy words but they actually mean something. This technology is a delivery system that carries the active ingredients from the mousse deep into the layers of the epidermis into target areas. It absorbs quickly and it doesn’t just come off when you step into the shower, nor does it rub off and soak into your socks. Of course Footlogix Medical® is the perfect solution for anyone’s dry winter feet but if you or someone you know has diabetes, you know that feet problems can be a real issue and Footlogix Medical® delivers specialized treatment and solutions for diabetic foot care problems helping to increase circulation.
I wasn’t sure I would be able to give you any good before and after pictures. When I took the picture of my foot before I started using Footlogix Medical® I really didn’t think it looked that bad. I took another picture after three days using the mousse and it wasn’t until I uploaded the pictures to my computer that I actually saw what a difference there was. I mean I certainly felt the difference but I really didn’t know I would see such a difference.
I am really impressed with how well the Footlogix Medical® works and how great my feet feel right now. We are just starting to get into winter here (yes it’s snowed already) so I am going to do my best to stay on top of the dry skin (I am sometimes bad at taking care of things like that for myself) and not have a winter where my poor feet crack and burn this year.
