Do you have dry feet? Have you asked yourself the question, "Why are feet so dry?". It is one of the most common issues for everyone. There are a few key reasons why our feet are dry. We are going to teach you the why and also provide a remedy or two on how to remedy dry feet.
WHY ARE FEET DRY
It's a combination of two things:
- The skin on our feet is unlike any other skin on our body. This is why our feet are typically dry unlike other parts of our body. This is due to the fact the skin on our feet does not have oil glands. Ironically, our feet have many sweat glands, but no oil glands at all, which causes dryness.
- When we are standing and walking that amount of pressure on our feet is very intense. Standing for long periods of time and this constant pressure or friction can easily lead to dry feet.
HOW TO CARE FOR DRY FEET
Drink more water. It sounds easy, but ineffective, however dehydration can cause dry skin.
Exfoliate your feet once a week with a gentle exfoliator.
Moisturize your feet every day, especially after bathing. We recommend double moisturizing, which yields amazing transformational results. Learn how to double moisturize.
