The most common client foot complaint is dry skin and it is no wonder. The skin of the feet is unlike any other skin on the human body. The epidermis is not only thicker, but the soles of the feet have an extra skin layer called the stratum lucidum. This translucent “blanket” of thin, densely packed skin cells provides an additional water barrier and further protects the skin from damage due to friction. The skin of the feet also lacks sebaceous glands which help to lubricate the skin on the rest of the body.

Here, Louella Belle head of education Bryony Cocksedge reveals her product recommendation to keep your feet soft and hydrated…

For a truly hydrating treatment I would recommend one of the hydrating treatments from Footlogix, whose products are formulated with Dermal Infusion Technology®. This delivery system carries active ingredients past the stratum corneum into the layers of the epidermis, helping to restore the health of the skin. This technology ensures that Footlogix active ingredients penetrate the layers of the epidermis and reach the targeted areas. With no greasy outer layer to block it, the skin is hydrated and retains its ability to function normally, resulting in healthy feet.

The Footlogix Daily Maintenance Formula is ideal for normal to dry skin and contains urea to lock in moisture. I always recommend this as a maintenance product for clients who want to maintain hydrated feet and toes between their pedicure appointments.
