Have you noticed that you give your feet a lot of attention before your holiday, but not so much once you’re back? In fact, post-holiday feet need extra care, but you may not realise this. With the right products, you can quickly and easily restore their glory, and keep your feet feeling holiday-ready all year round.
Once they return from their holidays, many people let their foot care routine fade along with their tan. But it’s really important to keep the foot care routine going. If you’ve been to a hot country, your skin may be drier, particularly if you’ve been walking around on sandy or dusty areas, or spending long periods in the sun.
If you’ve been enjoying some barefoot walking, this can contribute to cracked heels and thickened skin, which can lead to calluses. Holidays can also make us experiment with different footwear, resulting in us wearing shoes like new sandals, or strappy flip-flops, or a new pair of heels bought especially for the trip. We may not know it, but out feet take a fair bit of battering from our choice of holiday footwear.
If hot and humid weather combines with tight, non-breathable shoes, you may also be bringing a fungal infection such as athlete’s foot back as a souvenir from your trip. It’s one of the neediest times your feet will experience, so it’s really important that you maintain a good foot care routine after your holidays.
Ready, steady, pedi…
It’s easy to keep the holiday-ready feeling going when it comes to your feet. Start by working on any holiday wear and tear and removing its signs on your feet. If you find that your foot skin has become drier and harder, the Scholl Express Pedi with Diamond Crystals is a quick, easy and convenient way to get rid of the accumulated dead skin, leaving behind beautifully soft and healthy feet.
Safe and simple to use, the device needs less force than a manual foot file. In fact, it should be your number one tool in the quest for pedicure-perfect feet all year round.
To help soothe and condition post-holiday feet, ensure that you follow your foot care regime daily. Using intensive moisturising creams (such as Scholls Dry Skin Recovery Cream) that contain hyaluronic acid, green caviar and pentavitin can restore moisture back into your feet in no time.
The way to fabulous feet
Once you’ve restored your post-holiday feet to their former glory, keep a good foot care routine going and you’ll really reap the rewards. A little bit of attention every day will result in your feet looking gorgeous and healthy all year round – so you’re always holiday ready!
