Going on holiday rarely involves a break for our feet. Trips to hot, dry climates increase the likelihood of dry skin, cracked heels and increased perspiration. Often, our footwear changes from the well-worn and comfortable to newly-purchased sandals or flip-flops. This can cause friction that leads to blisters and other painful problems.
When packing your bags, remember to pop a few foot care products in with your beachwear and sunhat.
Feet get sunburned too!
It’s easy to forget about the skin on the tops of your toes, upper feet and ankles. But its thin nature and the fact it’s usually protected by shoes and socks makes it especially susceptible to sunburn. Best, therefore, to use the same type of high-factor cream you’d use on your face.
A few weeks before your holiday, start up an exfoliating and moisturising regime and start trimming your toenails on a regular basis.
