As many of you know, I also work as a Foot Care Nurse (an RN who takes care of foot problems, mostly in the elderly population) and I use several AVON products in my care. So I was excited to see the Disposable Foot Masks come back in stock.
This disposable foot mask contains powerful natural moisturizing ingredients to help soften feet. It also allows for a Waterless Foot Care Visit. Believe it or not , soaking your feet in water may be more harmful than helpful. Not only do you take the chance of introducing fungus or bacteria into our foot, but prolonged soaking dries out your feet.
The mask contains some of the recommended moisturizing ingredients many Foot Care Nurses, and Podiatrists recommend for keeping your feet healthy. Moisturizing urea, shea butter and collagen. In addition, peppermint oil for a refreshing sensation. The mask is perfect for tired, aching, feet and even helps relief from high-heel use!
The Masks are actually pretty easy to use, but it’s best to use on clean, dry feet. Open the package and unfold the “socks/booties”, you will notice a perforation in the middle, tear along that perforation and the “socks” will separate in 2. The next step is to gently massage the “booties” to disperse the cream evenly through the sock, this also helps the top of the sock open to make putting it on easier.
If you have large feet, I recommend tearing the top of the “sock” to make the opening bigger (I found this out when my husband tried to use them). Put the “sock” on like you would a “bootie”, and leave on for 20-30 minutes. (I put another pair of wool socks on over the booties so I could do some housework while softening my feet)
After 20-30 minutes you can massage the booties to get the last bit of cream out, before you remove them. Once you have the “bootie/socks” off, gently rub the remaining cream into your feet.
The skin softening and moisturizing creams give my feet a soft feel, and I think the gentle massage to rub the remaining cream in feels amazing, especially after a long day of being on your feet.
