Questions and answers

Healthy and happy feet
Here’s everything you need to know to give your feet the beauty, care and relaxation treatments they need.

How can I always have smooth feet?

For polished and smooth feet try using an exfoliating cream to eliminate dead cells and stimulate cellular renewal. If you want to remove leathery skin, choose a cream with salicylic acid.
You can also try using a file after your footbath to remove hard skin. But don't rub too hard or you might irritate the new skin underneath.

What causes hard skin?

Thick hard skin forms on your feet from the continued pressure of walking and rubbing against your shoes – it can be bothersome and unsightly. To remove it, use our new Express Pedi – its advanced micro-rollers leave your feet feeling wonderfully soft.

How can I stop dry skin?

Thick hard skin will keep coming back unless the underlying cause of the pressure or friction on the feet is found and treated. Following a regular foot care regime, using products to moisturise and care for the feet can help keep skin soft and supple.

How can I stop foot odours?

To take care of excessive perspiration, wear socks made of natural materials like cotton, and shoes that allow your feet to breathe reducing the growth of fungi and bacteria that cause bad odour. Another way to prevent unpleasant fungi is using an antibacterial deodorising spray. If you have stubborn perspiration, an anti-odour cream can help, but shoe hygiene is essential too. Try using a spray deodorant for shoes or insoles made from activated charcoal to help eliminate bad odours.

How can I take care of corns?

Choose comfortable shoes to prevent corns from forming in the first place. If a corn has already formed, you can either remove it or protect it. Try creams for removal and use a file after footbaths. To protect corns, relieve pain and lessen the discomfort caused by friction and rubbing, use protective patches made from felt, latex or gel.

How can I fight foot tiredness?

Relieve tension and wash away fatigue with a warm footbath containing mineral-based salts or special cleansers. For really relaxed feet, massage them under running water and try a few exercises. Try rotating your ankles, wiggling and spreading your toes or running your soles over marbles at the bottom of the tub. End your footbath by alternating jets of hot and cold water to stimulate circulation. If you’re on the go, you can cool down and refresh hot tired legs and feet with a light spray too.

What's the best way to massage my feet?

You don't need to be a professional masseuse to give your feet a little love. All you need to do is have a refreshing footbath and give them a ten-minute gentle massage. Here’s a simple massage you can try:

Put a little massage oil on your foot.

Gently caress your foot starting from the toes, moving on to the sides, to the sole and back to the heel. Then massage your ankle and instep.

Gently pat the pads under each toe, using your thumbs.

Slowly slide your thumb from your heel to your toes, along the inside arch of your foot and then along the outer edge.

One at a time, hold your toes between your thumb and forefinger and extend them gently.

•Close one hand around the front of your foot and the other on the back. Then rotate your hands lightly in opposite directions, as if you were wringing your feet.
