It’s easy to forget about your feet. They’re often the most neglected part of the body but as the seasons change we may start to pay a little more attention to our feet. However, looking after our feet and legs all year round will ensure healthy skin and nails and help to prevent more serious infections.

A good footcare regime will include skincare, nail care and treating any conditions. The Boots Pharmaceuticals footcare range contains everything you need to promote a healthy footcare regime from files, scrubs, moisturisers, anti Perspirant to insoles and orthotics.

A regular pedicure should be part of a good footcare regime:

File away any hard skin from your feet (take care not to be too vigorous)

  • Bathe feet in a bowl of warm water using foot soak crystals
  • Trim toenails with toenail clippers/scissors - cutting across and not round the nail
  • Use a foot scrub to take away any remaining dead skin
  • Dry feet thoroughly especially in between toes
  • Moisturise your feet with a foot cream

If you have diabetes then you should check your feet daily and also visit a podiatrist regularly.
