4步舒緩腳踭乾燥 – 第4項最為重要!



  1. 經常用刀削走腳踭硬皮
  2. 經常赤腳
  3. 自生皮膚乾燥
  4. 皮膚受感染


  1. 如果乾燥嚴重,可先用溫水泡腳15分鐘,然後用腳板挫磨走角質層,但不應使用過度頻密,約兩星期使用一次即可
  2. 當腳踭乾燥時,應注重保濕,早晚塗含油脂的乳霜,如凡土林
  3. 若受到真菌感染,可購買些可殺滅真菌的藥膏,或資詢醫生,但必須每天使用直至完成整個療程,康復後脫皮及乾燥情況會得到改善
  4. 預防及保養小貼士: 日常回家可使用 Heidi’s germ wise 殺菌噴霧,消毒雙腳及鞋內外,預防真菌增生,而且噴霧內沒有酒精成份,不會令皮膚乾燥。小編亦推介 Cuccio 腳踭膏,這款腳踭膏氣味清香,而且小編不太喜歡凡士林塗後的痴立立感覺,而 Cuccio 腳踭膏用後質感較比爽身,所以推薦各位一試。


4 ways to ease Dry Heels – Last Point is the most important

Dry heels is a common problem among men and women alike during change of seasons.  What are the causes of dry heels? And how can we resolve this problem?

Who are more likely to get dry heels?

1. Those who shave frequently

Since the blade of a shaver can be quite irritating , The skin will respond with a self protective mechanism by producing a harder layer of cuticle. As time goes by, cracked heels appear.

Ditching the socks when putting on shoes are likely to end up with thickened  cuticles for the person.

3. Naturally dry

Some people just have dehydrated skin. Their sweat glands cannot work properly.

4. Infections

When the weather  is stuffy and humid, those who often wear tight shoes with stockings May create a perfect breeding ground for fungus.  once infected, the fit will develop problems like odor, peeling and cracking heels.

What are the solutions?

  1. If the skin is very thick, soak the feet in warm water for 15 minutes first. Then use a pedicure foot Fowler to file away the cuticle.
  2. If the heel is very dry, apply a rich moisturizers such as Vaseline in the morning and evening.
  3. If the feet has been attacked by fungus, use a fungal cream or go to see the doctor. Keep in mind the fungal cream should be applied until the fungus problem has completely disappeared. When the feet recovered, the problem of dry skin and peeling will improve.

Tips for prevention: When you get home, use Heidi’s germ wise antiseptic spray on your feet and inside the shoes to prevent growth of fungus. It does not contain alcohol that will dry out your skin. I would also recommend  cuccoi pedicure foot scrub. Do it with perservance to keep your feet from dry and crack

Many people wonder why their soak-off gel sometimes does not last.  It gets gooey and tacky. This usually it’s is because of insufficient curing.  The following items list out  are why the lamps sometimes did not work properly.
