Healthy Feet Are Happy Feet! - Recognizing Foot Concerns

As many as75% of spa-going clients
exhibit signs of athlete’s foot!
Have you ever thought about the amount of stress and pressure your clients put on the bottoms of their feet every day? Special attention is needed when caring for this specific area. The skin on the soles of the feet is much thicker than the rest of the body, therefore does not respond as readily to typical skin care products used elsewhere on the body. Healthy skin locks moisture in and protects against the entry of bacteria, fungus or viruses. Unhealthy or dry skin creates a portal of entry, leaving the skin traumatized and unable to perform its job of protection. Today, skin on the feet needs non-occlusive moisturizers with humectants, such as urea. A great brand I recommend for foot concerns is the Footlogix brand. The Footlogix products use the latest technology for treatment of the feet. Mousse-based technology is the latest type of formulation to add moisture into the layers of the skin on the feet. And like all skin on the face and body, if it is dry, it needs moisture every day.

A surprising fact: According to an independent study by the North American School of Podology, 75% of spa-going clients exhibit signs of athlete’s foot and, more often than not, it is only recognized as dry skin!

It is important to recognize these concerns and educate your clients on how to spot these concerns as well, so you can provide the correct treatment for them - therefore, gaining trust and loyalty! Another great item you can check out is the MILADY'S The Salon Professional’s Guide to Foot Care.

Hydro Moisturize Your Hands & Feet this Winter with BasicCare!

Tis' the season of dry, cracked, and flaky skin! Every Winter (without fail), my hands become extremely dry, they crack, they're red and they hurt. I am an avid germaphobe and know the constant washing of my hands doesn't help, but I'm not going to stop washing them, so instead I searched for alternatives. I recently tried and loved the Hydro Moisturizing Gloves & Socks by Basicare. They have made a huge difference in the appearance and feel of my hands and feet already this Winter, and I highly recommend them to all! Use on yourself, your clients, or for retail profit!

The Hydro Moisturizing Gloves & Socks by Basicare, have been two of our most popular selling items this Winter. Designed with a special lycra material, the fabric enables your favorite moisturizer to be more effectively absorbed into the skin creating more supple & soft, hands & feet.

Bonus: They make for a great-add on service to other treatments such as massages, and facials.
  • Treatment Tip: Excellent add-on to a full body massage or facial. Start service by applying and massaging your favorite lotion or cream to your clients hands, and apply the gloves. Than follow suit with the feet or vice versa. Once the Gloves have been applied, allow the Hydro Moisture products to work their magic, while you do yours to the rest of the body.
  • *Recommended Massage Lotion: Lavender & Calendula Hydrating Massage Lotion / 1 Gallon by Biotone...invites your clients to relax!
In addition, the Hydro Moisturizing Gloves & Socks by Basicare, are an excellent item to add to your back-bar or retail collection. Feature them next to the moisturizers, and your clients will find it hard to resist to not purchase the combination: the moisturizer and the enhancer.

Another benefit is that the Hydro Moisturizing Gloves & Socks by Basicare are washable and reusable. At only $4.48 a pair, the value far out weighs the price. Purchase them Today: Click Here!
