FOOT CARE PROFESSIONALS USE CCS FOR VERY GOOD REASONS

Go to most chiropodists and podiatrists and you’ll notice that they use CCS foot care products. More and more pharmacists recommend them too. This is because our foot care formulas are natural, and gentle, but very effective. Clinically proven and dermatologically tested, they can help with everything from moisturising to cracked heels.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT KEEPING FEET HEALTHY

Our feet have a lot to put up with. We’re all busy people, and on our feet for much of our waking lives - the average adult takes between 4,000 and 6,000 steps a day. Ouch! No wonder our feet can sometimes do with a little help. This is where to look for expert advice about routine care and particular foot care problems, and we’ll be adding more as the weeks go by. So keep visiting.

CRACKED HEELS

Cracked heels are a fairly common condition, experienced more usually in the summer. While not always problematic in themselves they can be painful and lead to more serious problems if not treated early on.

Our heels are the first part of our foot to make contact with the ground when we walk. As a result of this they can build up resilience to the pressure put on them and this may result in a build up of hard or thick skin. Thick skin does not absorb moisture easily and is therefore more prone to dryness and if left untreated the skin may crack. In summer the problem can be made worse by warm weather and shoes which leave feet more exposed and more likely to dry out.

Skin on the foot is thicker than skin elsewhere on the body and for this reason a normal body moisturiser won’t do the job of repairing cracked heels. Use a specific foot moisturiser such as CCS Heel Balm which is clinically proven to effectively control the most severe cases of rough, dry skin and cracked heels. It works in seven days and contains 25% Urea to help repair and relieve, leaving skin soft and supple.

HARD, THICK SKIN AND CALLUSES

Hardening and thickening of the skin of the foot is fairly common. Whilst not always painful it can be unsightly and can lead to other problems if it's not treated effectively early on.

The skin on our feet can be up to four times thicker than on other parts of the body, and our feet take the strain of us walking and standing everyday. In response to this stress our skin thickens to protect itself. Poorly fitting shoes and walking mechanics may exacerbate the condition. If you have painful or re-occurring calluses it may be advisable to visit a podiatrist for professional advice.

Thickened skin on the feet provides a barrier but this also makes it harder for skin to absorb moisture. This means that the skin can become dry and rough. This type of skin build up is a natural response to the strain we put on our feet but can be removed and even prevented with a good footcare regime.

Regular use of a good foot moisturiser will help prevent problems occurring. CCS Foot Care Cream is ideal for use every day, developed in Sweden its' professional formula is effective at dealing with hard and dry skin. Regular use will leave skin soft, supple, and in good condition

GENERAL HELP AND ADVICE

TAKING GOOD CARE OF YOUR FEET

A simple footcare routine is easy to achieve at home and will help prevent problems such as cracked heels and calluses. Giving your feet some regular care and attention will also help you identify anything out of the ordinary which may need professional advice or treatment.

KEEP THEM CLEAN

Just letting water run over your feet in the shower is not enough, take the time everyday to wash your feet all over and in particular between your toes. Try using a scrubbing brush or tool to deep clean your feet, especially in summer where open toed shoes make dirty feet unavoidable. Removing dirt, sweat and bacteria will help prevent infections and also stop them smelling

DRY THEM THOROUGHLY

After washing it’s important to dry your feet carefully, because bacteria and fungi love warm, moist conditions. Dry feet gently but carefully ensuring that you dry between all of your toes.

STOP THE SPREAD
If you, or someone in your family is suffering from a skin infection, such as a fungal foot infection don’t share towels, socks or shoes. If in any doubt over a foot condition seek advice from a healthcare professional.

MOISTURISE, MOISTURISE, MOISTURISE
Ideally you should moisturise your feet in the morning and evening to help keep the skin hydrated and supple as the skin on your feet can dry out quickly, especially in the summer. Try to make moisturising your feet part of your daily body care routine as regular moisturisation will help prevent both the build up of hard skin and dry or cracked skin.

Use a specialist foot moisturiser such as CCS Foot Care Cream to nourish and care for your skin.

CLIP CAREFULLY
Toenails need to be trimmed regularly to keep them in good shape and to help prevent them thickening or growing in the wrong way. Use a specialist toenail clipper and always cut straight across and follow the natural shape of each nail. Don’t cut too close or down the sides of your nails as this can result in soreness, infections or the nail growing inwards.

If your toenails are hard or thick and difficult to cut try soaking them in warm water to soften them. If you are still experiencing problems then seek the advice of a Chiropodist or Podiatrist.

FRESH FEET
As well as washing feet daily, a fresh pair of socks or hosiery will help keep feet feeling fresh and prevent odours developing. Try to change the shoes you wear every day, your feet will sweat in the shoes and rotating footwear will allow them to dry out thoroughly.

Feet do sweat and will sometimes smell, so if this occurs, especially in the summer use a foot spray and/or shoe insoles to help control the problem.
