Our incredible feet deserve more attention than they usually get! If you count on your feet to go out and about, then they may be in need of extra pampering. More than regular hydration, very solicited feet tend to accumulate dead skin cells that may lead to thickened skin and roughness. When this happens, it’s time to call a foot cream with urea to the rescue! These creams not only get rid of dead skin cells but also deeply hydrate and replenish very dry skin. Start today taking good care of your feet!
Why urea in foot cream?
Let’s start by understanding what is urea and how is urea good for the skin. In a few words, urea offers both a keratolytic and hydrating action, meaning that it has the unique ability to eliminate the build-up of excess dead skin cells all the while hydrating the skin. As a result, it significantly improves the appearance of dry, rough, scaly patches by reducing the build-up of dead skin cells all the while providing hydration and smoothing the texture of the skin. Yes, it’s just as perfect for your feet as it sounds! As the feet tend to accumulate dead skin cells that have a hard time finding their way out, a urea enriched cream may be all that you need to have soft and smooth feet.
These are the best urea foot creams!
Urea is an incredibly interesting and versatile skincare ingredient! That’s why we should start by understanding it before choosing the best foot cream with urea for us. The key point to look for is urea concentration. The higher the concentration, the higher its keratolytic action – or in other words, a higher exfoliating action. A good way of choosing your cream is to start by accessing the needs of your skin: your heels look extremely dry and in need of rescue? Then a lower urea concentration should be all it takes for great results. On the other hand, if the feet show rough and thick patches, you may need a higher concentration to have satisfactory results.
