You take care of the skin on the rest of your body, why not your feet? Each season comes with its own challenges as far as foot skin care goes (dry skin in winter, athlete’s foot in summer), and CCFA has the tools and products needed to keep your feet looking and feeling great all year round!
Skin Care Tips
- Wash your feet daily in warm, soapy water. Inspect feet for lesions, growths or changes and report any issues immediately to your doctor. Skin cancer of the feet is one of the most overlooked cancers. Could you tell the difference between a wart, benign growth, or melanoma? Don’t risk your health; your podiatrist is the most qualified to examine feet.
- Moisturize your feet daily, especially the heels and balls of your feet. (See below for products we recommend).
