Everyone has suffered from this at one time or another. You might be suffering now. Badly fitting shoes and socks, thin soled shoes and high heels cause pressure and friction at particular points on the feet.
The result? Calluses. Areas of thickened, hard and sometimes cracked skin, which can make walking or standing for long periods uncomfortable and potentially painful.
And the problem can be made worse by other factors including obesity, deformities or other problems with the feet. Left untreated, calluses can become a deterrent to normal day-to-day activities.
But Flexitol, a leading worldwide skincare brand, has an exciting new product that's aimed at helping melt away those patches of thickened, hard skin with results that you will be able to see within one week.
Calluses may be removed professionally by a podiatrist using a scalpel, but this is one thing you really should never try at home, especially when there is a new, clinically proven way to get rid of unsightly, calluses from the Flexitol footcare experts.
Flexitol Callus Remover Cream contains:
• AHAs (alpha hydroxyl acids) which are used in many skincare products to help remove dead skin cells and reveal healthier, softer, younger-looking skin. AHAs penetrate into the upper layers of the skin to break down dead, callused skin cells without harming the normal skin beneath.
• Urea, the moisturising substance found naturally in the skin. When the outer layer of the skin – the stratum corneum – loses moisture it becomes dry and it can become thickened, scaly and even cracked, but urea rehydrates the skin as it penetrates the stratum corneum, absorbing and retaining moisture.
The richly moisturising base helps the cream stay in place, giving it time to penetrate, hydrate and loosen dead skin cells.
Flexitol Callus Remover Cream is available in a 56g tube with a recommended retail price of £5.50.
