Treat Your Feet with Aquaphor

Spring is upon us, which means Summer is right around the corner. With Summer, comes flip flop & sandal season! For all of us who wait for this time of year Aquaphor wants to help your treat your feet so they are ready to make their spring and summer debut.

If your feet are still carrying the burden of the dry, winter season, you’re not alone. Indoor heat and the harsh winter elements dry out your skin due to the lack of humidity in the air. When skin gets really dry it can break open and crack. Most of us are good at keeping our skin moisturized, but we often neglect our feet, out of sigh, out of mind. This can lead to cracked heels that include dark or yellowing skin, calluses and flaky patches of skin, all things you want to be rid of before slipping into this season’s hottest flip flops. This is definitely the point I was at last week before receiving my package from Aquaphor, and I knew I wanted to get flip flop ready and fast because with warm weather making it’s first visit of the year, I am ready to pack the boots away and pull out all of my cute sandals!

Treat Your Feet: DIY Pedicure

Using the proper technique and products is crucial for a smooth transition into flip-flop season and Aquaphor is here to help with these three easy steps:

  • Step 1: Soak 

Your feet get the most use and abuse. Take 10-20 minutes every few weeks to pamper them in a soak       of lukewarm water with a few drops of gentle liquid soap. Try out Aquaphor’s sister brands, Eucerin Gentle Hydrating Cleanser. Soaking your feet helps to soften the skin and will make the next step easier.

  • Step 2: Exfoliate 

Once the skin on your feet has been softened from the soak dip a pumice stone into the water and rub it lightly back-and-forth across the rough patches on your feet for about 30 seconds. Dip the pumice stone back in the water and repeat on the other foot. When finished, dip both feet back in the water to remove the excess skin.

  • Step 3: Moisturize

Now that you’ve softened your feet and removed some of the dead skin it’s important that you properly moisturize the new layers of skin that have been exposed. Apply a generous amount of Aquaphor Healing Ointment, cover your feet with plush socks and sleep in them overnight. You’ll love the way your feet feel in the morning and will vow to make this a part of your regular routine!

Aquaphor Healing Ointment protects dry, cracked or irritated skin to help enhance the natural healing process and restore smooth, healthy skin. Dermatologist-trusted product that is fragrance-free, preservative-free, non-irritating and ideal for sensitive skin.

Get Rid of DRY?CRACKED Heels in as little as 24 Hours!

I have to say I was absolutely amazed with the results, shown above is just after one use. I followed the above steps and even though I HATE socks I forced myself to keep them on overnight, and I am so glad I did. As you can see I had dry, cracked and yellowing skin on my heels and it was almost completely gone in the morning! Imagine how great they would look after a few uses, I plan on using the Aquaphor Healing Ointment regularly.

  • I love me some Aquaphor! Seriously cannot live with out it. I use it on my lips – I have crazy sensitive lips and it is the only stuff that I seem to not be allergic to. I use it on my hands and feet too. Amazing product!

  • Something like this would be absolutely perfect for my feet! They are just horrible looking D: Damn living in Florida. D: My feet are way worse then yours were by looking at the picture you uploaded. Le sigh!

  • Hi Ange 🙂 What a difference with one treatment. I bet you had some happy feet 🙂 I don’t have a lot of issues with dry feet, but I know some other people who do, that would benefit from something like this. Thanks for sharing the info. Happy Monday xo

  • Acquaphor is a godsend for my youngest son. He deals with severe eczema. After we apply his topical Rx we ‘seal’ it all in with a good coat of acquaphor.
    But your post has been a timely reminder that even though I keep my toes painted year round, it is time to pay attention to the rest of my feet so that they are sandal ready!

  • We were advised by our pediatrician to use aquaphor for our son’s eczema… but I didn’t think of using it on my feet.

  • I give my feet a treatment once a week cause they get so rough & tough from running everyday. I swear if I didnt they’d look disgusting!
