A foot cream is an essential beauty product because it keeps the feet soft and hydrated. The reason why a foot cream is different from your face cream is that the skin on your feet is thicker than the skin on your face. For the feet, you need a cream that's rich and thicker in consistency.
Let's get creative! Shall we, begin?
Whether it's a bug bite, a bruise or a burn, your foot cream will nurse your skin back to health. Foot care creams also help to prevent infections from happening and help heal the skin faster.
If you don't have a hand cream at home, you can use your foot cream to moisturise your hands. Since hands are often subjected to rigours work such as washing, cleaning, typing, cutting, the skin on your hands is more prone to damage. Since the foot cream has a rich texture, it will do a great job at moisturising and nourishing the hands. *Brownie points* if you have picked a foot cream from germ-killing foot care products section then it can work as a hand sanitizer too.
Most foot creams contain ingredients such as eucalyptus, peppermint and lavender. Each of these ingredients gives off a strong aroma that helps to calm and soothe the body. If you have a stuffy or running nose, gently rub some foot cream on the chest. You will instantly feel better and more relaxed.
Yes! Foot creams can also be used as a lip mask. If you have severely chapped lips that may cause pain when touched, simply apply a little bit of foot cream on the lips. Use your finger to massage the product on the skin. Keep the foot cream on for 10 minutes and gently wash it off using a warm washcloth.
Waxing is a painful experience and it usually leaves behind tiny red bumps. You can apply a thick layer of foot cream to soothe the area and prevent the skin from flaring up. You've got to try it to believe it!
Didn't we tell you that the foot cream is a multipurpose product? Yes, the cream isn't only limited to treat the skin on your feet. It can be used on your lips, calluses, hands and more. From all the foot cream uses mentioned above, which of these are you going to try out first? Let us know!
