Rough and excessively thick skin on the bottoms of your feet can be unsightly, embarrassing, painful, and even just annoying because it snags fabric. Worse yet, the skin can become so dry and thick that the skin on your heels and on the balls of your feet cracks. The cracks hurt and they also put you at risk for infections.
You are more at risk for these foot skin problems:
- As you age.
- If you do a lot of impact exercise.
- When you wear sandals for any length of time.
These problems also get worse for women after menopause. In fact, post-menopausal callusing and thickening of the feet is so common that the condition has a medical name, keratoderma climactericum. (Loosely translated, this term means thick feet skin after the "climax" of a woman’s life, which is apparently menopause - thanks "forefathers" of medicine!) I say, to heck with keratoderma climactericum and to heck with rough, thick, yellow skin on the bottoms of the feet too. My Foot Care Kit can give everyone soft, attractive, and comfortable feet skin at any age.
If you have foot skin problems, you're not alone. During the course of my dermatology skin exams I see a lot of rough, thick, cracking skin on the feet because it's so common. I developed my Foot Care Kit as a "turnkey" solution for my patients, and it's worked for them for many years.
The magic of my Foot Care Kit comes from the extremely powerful AHA glycolic acid in the foot cream combined with the right foot files for physical exfoliation. It takes really strong professional-strength glycolic acid to eat through massively thickened foot skin and Glytone Heel and Elbow is the best AHA product for the job.
I like it better than urea, salicylic acid, or lactic acid foot care products. Plus, weak foot cream products are why most foot remedies don't work. Once the dead skin on your feet is softened by the Glytone Heel and Elbow, you need just the right tools to remove it. With my kit, you get the Feet First Spa Buffing Pad to quickly buff away the softened skin. My Foot Kit also includes a finishing foot file to smooth your feet so that they're soft again. These are salon-quality professional products that work really well and are reasonably priced.
Prepare to have baby soft feet that look great in sandals. No more embarrassing "hoofs" that snag fabric, crack, and are embarrassing.
A word of caution though, this is a strong kit that will combat the thickest foot skin. At first, the kit needs to be used more frequently to reverse the hefty build-up of dead skin. Once controlled, however, soft, healthy, and attractive foot skin is usually easy to maintain with less frequent treatment.
