Step Up Your Summer Foot Care

foot care

Summer can bring some added challenges for your feet. Whether you’re strolling sandy beaches or exploring outdoor trails, your feet may need some extra care during the heat of the season to ensure that they remain healthy, comfortable, and ready for your adventures.

There are many good reasons to consider incorporating a whole home water filtration and softener system into your home. Dehydration can take a toll on your entire body and proper hydration is essential to maintain skin elasticity and prevent dryness and cracking, especially on your feet. 

However, hard water which contains higher quantities of minerals such as calcium and magnesium can cause skin to lose moisture and is especially challenging for those with dry skin or skin conditions such as eczema. In addition to providing clean, fresh drinking water that has been filtered of contaminants and impurities, a high-quality water filtration and softener system reduces harsh minerals in your water, providing you with soft and nourishing water that can help keep your skin moisturized and hydrated.

Importantly, summer’s higher temperatures can lead to increased sweating, which can cause discomfort, odor, and an increased risk for fungal infections like athlete’s foot. To combat sweat, dirt and bacteria, wash your feet daily in soft, filtered water and dry them thoroughly afterward. Hard water makes soaps and cleansers less effective and leaves behind a residue that can make skin feel itchy and dry, while soap lathers better and washes away easier with soft water. Enjoy some extra pampering and soothe your tired, achy feet by soaking them in a foot bath.

After cleansing, gently exfoliate the skin and moisturize it. Regularly exfoliating your feet helps remove dead skin cells, preventing calluses and rough patches. Then follow with a replenishing moisturizer to keep your feet smooth, supple, and sandal-ready. Be sure to remember, before sun exposure, use a protective sunscreen to shield your feet from harmful UV rays.

This summer, give your feet the attention they deserve. Investing in a Brita PRO whole home water filtration and softener system can not only benefit your foot care, but will also enhance the overall quality of the water throughout your home.
