Foot creams keep your feet hydrated and prevent your heels from getting cracked. Athlete’s foot is a common skin infection caused by fungus, and applying foot cream regularly will prove to be beneficial. If you incorporate foot cream in your daily routine, you will have smooth and shiny feet.

The best way to apply foot cream
When it comes to your feet, it’s always better to opt for a crème that has a thicker texture. Ideally, you can apply foot cream right after taking a shower, when your feet are slightly moist as it will help absorb the cream.  Take a small quantity of the foot cream and massage your feet in circular motions.

Along with applying the cream, you can take the following steps to get soft and sleek skin:

Avoid wearing open foot wear as prolonged exposure to the elements will easily crack your heels.

At the end of the day, scrub your feet with a foot scrubber to get rid of all the dead and flaky skin.

Ensure that you trim your toe nails regularly, so as to avoid contracting fungal infections.
