Dry feet in the post-summer period?  Here are the best expert treatments to include in your beauty routine

How to take care of your dry feet when you return from vacation?

As well as the lips, the feet are often forgotten in the summer. Roughly abused by hot sand, repeated swimming in the sea, pool chlorine, UV rays, barefoot walking, hiking through forests and long nights dancing, this part of the body is one of the of the first to dry up rapidly. Indeed, the epidermis of this area is particularly fragile because it produces little sebum (a phenomenon that increases all the more with age). As a result, faced with successive irritations, the skin tends to thicken or even crack and peel when returning from vacation.

To deal with it, there is no need to rush to your pumice stone, which, if used too often, can attack the skin. On the contrary, the only watchword to regain suppleness and comfort is hydration. After a scrub (limited to once a week – and with a gentle composition – to eliminate all impurities and dead cells) and a foot bath which will dilate the pores, it is recommended to massage them with the help of a moisturizing cream, in order to do good to his skin as well as to his spirit.
