Why You Should be Using Foot Cream

If you are anything like me, you probably don’t think about your feet a whole hell of a lot. And when you do think about them, it probably isn’t for anything good. If you do have foot problems, you certainly are not alone. An estimated 77 percent of Americans have some sort of history with foot pain, yet only 1/3 of that group would think to seek the care of a podiatrist. 

A common form of foot discomfort is caused by dry skin. Dry skin anywhere can be irritating. Dry, damaged, and cracked skin on your feet can be downright debilitating. This is particularly true for those with physically demanding jobs and hobbies

Today, we will discuss why every man should be using foot cream.

How Does Foot Cream Work Exactly?

First thing’s first: the skin on your feet is slightly different from most other skin on the body. However, the difference in foot skin vs. most other skin is generally relegated to the soles of the feet, not the entire foot. The specific differences here being that the soles of your feet have additional sweat glands, are thicker, and lack hair follicles.

With this in mind, how does foot cream work? The answer is that it works in much the same way as most other moisturizing creams. High quality foot creams work in three ways:

  1. Occlusives create a watertight barrier on the outside of the skin. This keeps your body’s natural moisture in while keeping some outside irritants out.
  2. Emollients penetrate beneath the skin’s surface to fill in gaps and even out your skin. This repairs your skin from within.
  3. Humectants work almost like a magnet for water, drawing moisture to your skin to keep it hydrated for long periods of time.

The Health Benefits of Using Once-Daily Foot Cream

As we mentioned above, foot pain and foot issues are incredibly common for adults. Dry and damaged skin are perhaps the most common of all such issues. We already wrote about why all men should use moisturizer. Here are just a few reasons why all men should use once-daily foot cream:

It is so damn easy. This is common with using a moisturizer for hands, elbows, and other dry areas. Applying foot cream takes a few seconds. There is really no excuse for skipping this step in your daily routine when the benefits far outweigh the minimal inconvenience.

Hard working men stand on their feet for long periods of time. If your dogs are ever barking (people still say that, right?), you know that the last 3 hours of your shift are going to be a lot longer than they need to be. Foot creams help alleviate foot discomfort and help you to work and work out for longer.

Hydrated skin is healthier and performs better. If you need to perform at your job, in a hobby, or in the gym, foot issues simply aren’t an option. Once-daily foot creams are the best and easiest way to protect your skin and keep you going strong.

Why All Foot Creams are Not Created Equal

Before you run to the nearest drug store and pick up the cheapest foot cream on the shelves, it is important to understand that not all foot creams are equipped for the job. This isn’t to say that affordable products are ineffective. In fact, the ingredients and the science that go into any moisturizer are far more important than the price point.

So how can you know what foot creams will be strong enough to repair, restore, and renew your cracked and damaged foot skin? First and foremost is the ingredients. Consider a product which is packed full of amino acids and other potent active ingredients. Essential and non-essential amino acids give your skin the nutrients it needs to restore itself naturally.

Also consider the organization selling the product. Is your foot cream coming from a multinational company with thousands of products? Or has your foot cream been developed by a dedicated team with only a singular purpose: to create an everyday skin care cream designed to help restore dry chapped, cracked, split hands, elbows, knees and feet?

Needless to say, we believe in the latter. Making high quality moisturizing cream is all we do, and we believe we do it very well.
