Our feet are a part of the body that we use every single day. However, our health care regimes often focus on our hair, face and hands, leaving our feet neglected. Foot care continues to grow in popularity as products emerge that nourish and give back to our feet, such as foot balms. With a product like Dr. Entre’s Foot Balm, you can give your feet a professional, spa-like treatment, right from the comfort of your home.
The History of Foot Balms
Evidence of foot care can be seen as far back as 4000 BCE, however, practices were often just as simple as footwashing. Eventually, various washing and exfoliating techniques were established, experimenting with different materials and ingredients to determine the best way to care for feet. Western medical scientists place heavy emphasis on the feet, viewing them as a second heart that is necessary to help pump blood throughout our body and maintain good health. Ancient Chinese medicine emphasizes that the feet are like roots to a tree, supporting the rest of our body.
Taking these notions into account, many feel that practices such as rubbing the feet can be crucial to getting a good night’s sleep, maintaining energy during the day and maintaining good circulation. With key pressure points in the feet, rubbing certain areas can relax the muscles, improve health and potentially soothe aches, pains and other physical and mental ailments. Women and men of all ages can benefit from proper foot care, and soothing foot balms are one way to rub your feet and help keep them nourished for the many journeys ahead.
Benefits of Natural Foot Balms
Living a busy lifestyle can make it difficult for many to maintain proper foot care. However, it’s not necessary to make an appointment at the spa to give back to one of the most important parts of your body. Dr. Entre’s Foot Balm is a quality foot care product that brings the spa to your home, allowing you to apply a soothing treatment quickly and easily, leaving your feet fresh and renewed.
This organic foot balm has antifungal, antimicrobial and antiseptic properties, helping fight harmful bacteria that cause both common and resistant foot conditions. This could include psoriasis, bunions, fungal infections, toenail fungus, athlete’s foot and other flare-ups. Some individuals are on their feet more often, such as athletes, making them more susceptible to developing foot problems. Dr. Entre’s Foot Balm can help combat such problems, keeping the feet clean, healthy and bacteria-free.
Feet can also become dry with cracked heels and toes or rough calluses. This can become painful and uncomfortable, and may also be bothersome during warmer weather when your feet are exposed. Dr. Entre’s Foot Balm can hydrate the feet, helping smooth and nourish skin, get rid of dry spots and cracks and leave them looking polished and healthy with a simple application 2 – 3 times per day.
The Importance of Organic Foot Balms
Some health care products are ridden with toxins and chemicals that can cause skin and health reactions such as rash, itchy skin, burning or even infection. As a result, many people are relying on all-natural products for care that they are comfortable and confident with. Instead of targeting just one problem with an ingredient, natural ingredients offer an array of potential benefits.
Dr. Entre’s Foot Balm uses a variety of ingredients that work together to provide several different benefits. Ingredients include organic shea butter, organic coconut oil, rosemary extract, an essential oil blend and vitamin E. Shea butter is used throughout lotions and conditioners, as well as this foot balm, utilizing natural vitamins and fatty acids to nourish, moisturize, soothe, restore and combat anti-aging. Similarly, organic coconut oil has fatty acids with the ability to help with psoriasis, eczema and other skin conditions, also offering anti-inflammatory, antifungal, antibacterial and analgesic benefits.
The rosemary extract ingredient offers antioxidant properties as well, helping combat arthritis and protect the skin. This works exceptionally well with the vitamin E, which also acts as an antioxidant, helping especially with inflammation, skin cell growth, wrinkles and blocking free radicals. To complete the ingredient combination, an essential oil blend of tea tree, lavender, eucalyptus and peppermint aims to help improve circulation, offer a cooling sensation and provide antibacterial, antimicrobial, antiseptic, antifungal and antiviral properties.
Dr. Entre’s Foot Balm and other foot products are tested for quality assurance, but also are completely cruelty free without any animal products, filler ingredients or industrial bi-products. This means you can cherish your feet with a product that you have the utmost confidence in.
