So you can’t afford to get pedicures every 2nd day but that’s no excuse to have bad feet! Lucky for us Emjoi MICRO Pedi has come to the rescue
80% of men and 60% of women have something wrong with their feet – no doubt because they’re suffering from cracked heels (53%) and dry skin (33%). But bunions and corns are the most loathed features on someone else’s feet with 70% of men and 71% of women finding them a complete turn off.
Women are also twice as likely to be unhappy with the appearance of their own feet (43%) compared with just 16% of men expressing dissatisfaction with the state of their feet. These are just some of the stats gained from Emjoi MICRO Pedi’s new survey of Irish men and women carried out by iReach in March 2012, as part of its ‘Great Heel Reveal’ Campaign.
Foot care is essential in the prevention and management of certain foot diseases and conditions. Cracked heels, otherwise known as heel fissures, are a common problem, caused by dry skin, which can be complicated if the heel is callused. Although cracked heels are mostly a cosmetic problem, they can be irritating; when the cracks are deep, they can often bleed and lead to infection. Calluses form in response to irritation or friction. Cracked heels may form on only one side of the foot or wrap around the entire heel and can be caused by simple dry skin, walking barefoot or in sandals, an inability to sweat in the foot area, or obesity. Eczema or Psoriasis can also be a contributing factor, as can the use of hot water. High-arched feet or wearing shoes with an open back can also cause cracked heels. Looking after your feet can mean a healthier heel and a more comfortable walk.
