All About Foot Creams… and Cracked Heels
Having soft and smooth feet is a wonderful thing, but taking care of the skin on your feet is not a one-size-fits-all operation, by any means. First of all, our feet have different types of skin -- softer and more delicate on the top and thicker on the bottom. Secondly, everyone’s foot needs are just a little different. So we’ve curated a range of options to help you say goodbye to rough, scaly feet and heels.
Many of us live active lives, and sometimes we can forget to take care of our feet. At the end of a hard day, they deserve some TLC to help keep their skin soft and supple. We offer a range of rich, super moisturizing products, all diabetic friendly, to keep your feet looking and feeling their best:
