Cold weather dries out your skin and nails, which weakens them and makes them more susceptible to damage and infection. The cold can also have an effect on your circulation. Check your nails/skin at the beginning or end of the day for any changes. Moisturisers like Gehwol Warming Balm help the skin to store and harness natural moisture. Tried and trusted antiseptics prevent foot odour, help to prevent infections and itching between the toes.
Certain conditions like Chilblains usually only affect your feet during the colder months. Chilblains are small, itchy swellings on the skin that occur as a reaction to cold temperatures. They most often affect the body’s extremities, such as the toes and heels. Chilblains can be uncomfortable.
Daily care keeps the skin of your feet healthy, warm and free of infection.
