How can you help keep your feet healthy and beautiful?

A key part of tackling this, is understanding the hard skin on your feet and why it is important to take care of them as part of your regular routine.

What Is the Hard Skin on My Feet?

Hard skin can look different for different people, as skin hardness is a scale, rather than a condition that you do or do not have. Rough patches of hard skin that are usually yellowish in colour can often occur around the heel or on the ball of the foot. This skin is usually less sensitive to the touch than the surrounding skin and is quite thick. These areas of skin, referred to as calluses, are less defined than corns, which are often softer but have similar causes. Hard skin develops when the skin rubs against something (such as a tight shoe), this leads to calluses forming on the bony parts of your foot which take most of the weight as you walk. Walking barefoot or repeated heavy pressure such as running can speed up the formation of calluses. It is for this reason that athletes are particularly susceptible to hard skin on the feet.

Why Is It Important?
Apart from the confidence of being able to flaunt your feet and the knowledge that your feet are being kept as beautiful as possible, preventing hard skin on your feet is also important for other reasons.

Calluses and the build-up of hard skin on your feet can reduce the sensitivity of your skin over time. If left untreated, the skin can become dry, swollen or even crack; this can be very painful and as you can imagine, may lead to more serious skin problems.

How can I make sure I avoid hard skin?
There are several ways to prevent the formation of hard skin on your feet:

Wear comfortable shoes that fit properly.
Respond to painful feet as soon as possible, this can indicate future problems.
Dry your feet properly after showering and bathing to ensure your skin remains healthy and beautiful.
Find a daily foot care routine that works for you. With minimal time and effort each day, your feet could always look and feel beautiful.
