September is here again, and it's my favourite time of year. I love the warm days and cool nights, and can't wait for the spectacular fall colours to show themselves and go for long walks crunching the leaves under my shoes!
We are of course back to school, work and routines now as well, so it's time to resume those goals you have set for your skin health. I recently attended a foot-care webinar on dry skin, and it's quite amazing how quickly it can recover from dry, tight, flaky skin to healthy well-balanced skin; it only takes a little dedication and time for self-care on your part, and of course some foot care product best suited for your skin.
Did you know that the skin on your feet is much different than the skin anywhere else on your body? The Epidermis (Stratum Corneum) or "top layer" of the skin contains 5 layers on the soles of the feet, which makes it thicker to protect itself against the external hazards. The extra layer is called the Stratum Lucidum which is a thin, shiny layer that is only present on the soles of the feet (& palms of the hands.) These two layers are what needs to be cared for to ensure proper health of the skin and overall functioning of the feet. When your feet are compromised by dry, flaky, cracked skin they are left more vulnerable to infection and unhealthy conditions.
