TLC for the Feet

Taking the time to cleanse your feet each day will aid in preventing any foot odor and the development of infections. Fungal organisms thrive in moisture, so it's imperative to ensure the feet are dry after being washed, especially between the toes.


Our feet go through a lot as they carry us through our day-to-day activities, but what are we doing to maintain their health along the journey? Just like the rest of our skin, our feet naturally become covered in bacteria, dirt, and sweat throughout the day. Taking the time to cleanse your feet each day will aid in preventing any foot odor and the development of infections. Fungal organisms thrive in moisture, so it's imperative to ensure the feet are dry after being washed, especially between the toes. After cleansing your feet, take time once a week to examine them thoroughly. You should be checking the tops and soles of each foot, as well as between each toe, for any abnormalities. Abnormalities could include symptoms of athlete's foot, skin injuries, redness, swelling, cuts, blisters, etc. During these weekly checks, the toenails should be looked over for any discolorations or odors that may indicate a nail fungus. If any concerning abnormalities are found, it is recommended to reach out to your dermatologist or physician for further examination. Some of us may want to take our foot care a little further than just cleansing the skin if our feet need a little exfoliation or extra hydration! The following products can be used at home or in the treatment room on the feet to give a little extra TLC.

  • Skin Peeling Lotion

  • Apply to calloused areas at night after cleansing the skin. Use three nights on, four nights off. Safe for all Fitzpatricks!

  • Hand & Body Lotion + Alpha Therapeutic Hand & Body Lotion

Apply a layer to the feet over clean, dry skin as needed. Safe for all Fitzpatrick's!

There are many other ways we can care for our feet, such as advanced treatments, massages, pedicures, and even wearing proper shoes and socks.
