Hard and cracked skin
Hard skin is caused by excess weight and or friction between the foot and the shoe.
Besides removing the hard skin by a special filing or with a surgery blade, care should be taken to prevent recurrence by removing the offending cause.
Applying an effective foot-cream, a frequently foot-treatment is a "must" as even washing the feet during the day especially on humid days!
One foot-treatment can't be enough! Only after several treatments on a long base you see satisfying results with hard and especially with cracked skin.
Here under (2 photos) you see the heel of a man with. Overweight who neglected his feet for years! During the first treatment with the anamneses I explained him that he only could expect good results if he should come very often. In the beginning! His second treatment was made in 2 weeks after the first! So much work was it to treat the cracked skin; in fact it was more than two treatments. On the second photo you see the beginning amazing results only after a treatment of 30minutes! I cut the hard skin with a surgery blad and after this I practiced a special file-technique His personal responsibility should be (the most optimum results I reach only with those who do their part and I have such clients (!!): they who take care and responsibility for their feet at home!!) applying a foot-cream every day, lose weight, a foot-treatment every 4-6 weeks.
Do you also dislike going outside in the summer, dressed well and with nice open sandals but with hard, ugly looking hard skin on your heels??? Who likes this?? Also recommended to use a professional foot-file or pedi-egg at home but attention: not more than once in the two weeks because otherwise the making of hard skin will even. Be activated!!
Finally, do you know the feeling that you made a good and sensible choice for example to eat more healthy food or to do more sport?? How good and content you feel when you persevere and are able to continue with this?? That's also how it works with treating your own feet. Be persevering persistent. Make foot-care to a part of your daily routine like brushing your teeth and feel the wealth of your spa-experience created by yourself in at your home. Put on a thick layer of foot-cream on your feet before you go to sleep, use thin cotton socks, read a book in bed or on the sofa and let the cream soak into your feet.
