Get your feet ready for spring
With this expert guide you can get healthy, beautiful feet within five days.

Springtime means you’ll soon be wearing sandals and walking around barefoot. After a long winter in heavy shoes and thick socks, your feet can be dried out and have unattractive callused skin. To get your feet ready for spring, you need a special 5-day care programme that will re-moisturise the skin on your feet and have them looking great again.

Day 1: Intensive care with a foot bath
and foot cream

A foot bath is the perfect way to provide intensive care to feet. A temperature of no more than 36 °C for 10–15 minutes is the best start to get your feet ready for the care programme. However, the actual foot care begins after the foot bath – with Elastoplast Anti Callus 2in1 Peeling with urea and almond oil to remove excess callused skin. Afterwards, pamper your feet with the Elastoplast Anti Callus 20% UREA Intensive Cream. Simply apply a thin layer of foot cream, put on a pair of socks and hop into bed. In the morning, your feet will be as soft as baby skin!
Start with a nourishing foot bath and follow up with intensive foot care.

Days 2-5: Apply cream each and every day

Applying a foot cream containing urea regularly is extremely important for healthy and beautiful feet. Dr Maike Kuhlmann from Elastoplast Research and Development explains: “Well cared for foot skin is not only softer and more beautiful, but can also better withstand friction, pressure and athlete’s foot."

She also confirms: “Applying a moisturising, easily absorbable cream each morning after showering is ideal. A more intensive cream massaged into the skin before bed that can be used overnight is Elastoplast Anti Callus 20% Urea Intensive Cream."

Itβ€˜s important to apply foot cream containing urea every day.

Day 3: Intensive treatment for
corns and calluses

If your feet have already developed excess calluses or corns that can’t be removed with a foot peeling treatment and care, you need special treatment. Elastoplast Callus Plasters and perfectly fitting Elastoplast Corn Plasters with salicylic acid should be applied directly to the affected areas to soften the thick callused skin over the course of two to four days so the excess can be easily removed at the end of the week.
Plasters containing salicylic acids can help soften thick and callused skin.

Day 4: A pedicure in the summer will add the perfect touch

For beautiful feet, the only thing missing now are beautiful nails. First, clip your nails. It’s important not to cut off too much, since this could cause the nails to become ingrown. Dr Kuhlmann explains: “The shape of the nails should correspond to their natural curvature, and the edges should be filed smooth.” An irregular surface can be smoothed out with a special file, and cuticles can be gently pushed back. Afterwards, the nails are ready to be painted.

Day 5: Now your feet
are ready!

After your 5-day intensive care programme, your feet are ready to make their seasonal debut. To ensure a blister doesn’t spoil the fun, Dr Maike Kuhlmann recommends always having a couple of blister plasters handy. She says: “The new Elastoplast Blister plasters protect the skin directly upon application, offer 48-hour adhesion, and protect from pain with the Active Gel Cushion.”
