If only our feet could stay like these gorgeous, baby-soft ones.
Aren’t these just the cutest?
It’s a pity that neither cute, baby-soft nor gorgeous are words that can be used to describe most adult feet. Especially those of us who run.
I’m sure like me many of you have experienced blisters, calloused skin and blackened toe nails.
I’m certainly not as good as I should be at caring for my feet, so was delighted when Flexitol kindly sent me one of their products to try and the chance for a reader to win a product for themselves.
For the last couple of weeks I’ve been using Flexitol Hard Skin and Callus Balm. The product recommends applying twice daily to any areas of hard skin on the feet.
I’ve not been very good at remembering to apply twice a day but at least I’ve been paying more attention to my feet than usual.
The cream is non-greasy and easily absorbed and I have noticed that some of the tough skin around my heels and toes is a little softer. It feels lovely to be giving my poor feet a bit of a treat.
I still have a long way to go before my feet resemble those of a new baby, but more regular moisturising is a good first step towards caring for my feet.
In addition to regular moisturising these are some other ways that runner’s and all those staying physically active can look after their feet:
- Ensure that shoes fit well.
- Keep toe nails trimmed short
- Wear suitable socks – preferably made of breathable material
- Increase milage gradually
