Fabulous foot cream

As a diabetic, I’m constantly being told to ‘look after my feet’ because those with diabetes have to be extra careful of their feet.

While I know what the risks are – loss of sensitivity because of poor circulation, extremely dry skin and an increased risk of infection, to name the most common – I often don’t end up doing anything to my feet. Why? It’s not fun, and I don’t know what to use. I’ve been looking for a product that makes looking after my feet a pleasure!

Which is why I was so thrilled to discover Pedi-Relax foot cream… Or fabulous foot cream, as I like to call it! I tested out the Pedi-Relax Moisturising Cream with sweet orange essential oil, and it was an absolute treat… I’m hooked.

The problem with most foot creams, in my experience, is that they’re too greasy. Your feet are dry, your heels need attention, you know you have to moisturise, but it is such a mission to put foot cream on if it’s going to make your feet greasy and slippery, and if it means you’ll either leave sticky footprints all over the floor, or have to wash a pair of socks to remove the greasiness. So what do I do? I avoid putting the foot cream on at all, and my feet just get drier and drier.

Not so with Pedi-Relax! Because it’s a non-greasy cream, it soaks in and doesn’t leave any sticky residue on the feet. It’s fantastic for rough skin and heels, magic for getting rid of dry skin, and best of all it smells lovely! Like a beauty product more than a health product, but it does marvellous things for your foot health too. Revitalising, antiseptic, moisturising and nourishing – this foot cream does it all.

Of course, I’ve since discovered the whole Pedi-Relax range, and what do you know – they have a special Diabetic’s Foot Care Cream, a dual-action cream that protects the feet and regenerates them, and has been scientifically formulated to purify fungal flora and boost microcirculation while it’s being massaged into the feet.

Between looking after blood sugar and diet and everyday life, it’s easy for us diabetics to let our foot care slide. But I recently read that foot complications are the number one reason people with diabetes get admitted into hospital… That’s a scary thought, isn’t it?

Don’t you think it’s time you started taking care of your feet? I’m certainly going to.

    Yes Pedi relax is good, but like all diabetic products and because it is herbal, it is also very expensive and the tube is only a quarter full, if you want people to buy the product it needs to be made affordable especially for pensioners

    A diabetic person should make sure he or she looks after their feet very well. It is essential and crucial to do so. These products really look good in helping to do so!
