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.

Healthy Feet Are Happy Feet! =)
