How to nourish your most neglected body part

It only takes two steps…


Here’s hoping that when we emerge post-quarantine, we’ll still have the weather to warrant open-toed shoes. So let’s see this time spent at home as an opportunity to get our feet sorted so we can emerge back into normal life and feel confident every step of the way.

If you’ve spent the last few months with your feet wrapped in woolly socks and chunky boots, the skin on your feet might be feeling pretty hard right now. When our feet are exposed to repeated friction or pressure, the body responds by producing excess skin cells and over time, this causes the skin to become thick, hard and sometimes a fairly grim shade of yellow.

Fortunately, sorting out your dry, hard skin is pretty straightforward – it just requires some heavy-duty moisturising and the right products.

Step one – treat your feet

First, you need to use a hydrating cream with active ingredients, like urea, which draws moisture to the affected area. Flexitol Heel Balm, designed for dry, cracked heels, intensely moisturises your feet with 25% urea to give you visibly smoother results in just one day. It’s suitable for diabetics, medically proven and will immediately make your feet softer and supple.

Step two – maintain your softness

Once you’ve achieved baby soft feet, don’t stop looking after them. Maintain healthy skin from now on by using Flexitol Moisturising Foot Cream, which contains the antioxidant vitamin E for preserving skin health and is enriched with 10% urea. Flexitol Moisturising Foot Cream is nourishing for the skin, delivers intense hydration and absorbs into the skin quickly.


Flexitol is available in all good pharmacies. Always read the label. Find out more at flexitol.co.uk.
