“People always say to me: ‘My feet didn’t used to look like this!’” says podiatrist Margaret Dabbs. “Well, the fact is: they didn’t. Feet go through the aging process in exactly the same way the face does.”
According to Dabbs, as we age, the sweat glands in the feet are less active, causing drier skin, so the older we get, the more we need to pay attention to hydration levels. “To help prevent and treat common foot complaints, good home care is necessary,” continues Dabbs. “With the right products and tools, the feet can be transformed. Start by foot filing – always on dry skin – once a week, and follow with a decent foot-specific moisturizer. The results of good foot care are instant, and the feet not only look better but feel better too.”
