Healthy and beautiful feet are inextricably linked to proper foot care. Especially in summer, our feet couldn’t be happier about some extra attention. Due to the high temperatures, we transpire more and lose quite a bit of skin moisture. That’s why it’s important to take countermeasures with intensively moisturizing care.

As regards the care of your feet, a regular pedicure is absolutely recommendable. An expert gently removes horny skin without damaging the skin underneath. Afterwards, your own foot care is easier, cracks at the heel and ball of the foot are prevented and it’s a real relief for your gait. Malpositions or skin or nail diseases can be diagnosed and you can be referred to a specialist doctor, if necessary.

However, a professional pedicure is not an absolute must. It is also possible to treat your feet to a small wellness session at home to keep your feet healthy. With proper care, the skin becomes more resilient. Germs in the pool or in your summer shoes don’t stand a chance to damage your feet. A real plus: groomed feet simply look beautiful!

Foot balm: all-rounder as basic care

Uncomplicated, effective, ideal for daily use: foot balm is the easiest foot care of all. Its application is particularly handy and it’s generally a true all-rounder. It is quickly applied and absorbed in the morning and/or in the evening, it moisturizes intensively and supplies the skin with fats and moisture. It’s the ideal way to nourish and protect dry and rough feet. In particular after some intensive exercising or long periods of walking or standing, it provides your feet with an extra dose of nourishing care. In your purse, it’s a leak-proof and unbreakable reliable companion on the go or while traveling. It’s ideal for everyone who appreciates uncomplicated foot care.

FußpflegeOur all-rounder: the BIRKENSTOCK NATURAL SKIN CARE Moisturizing Foot Balm provides ideal basic care, hydrates intensively and is absorbed quickly.

Expert advice: Natural Comfort – combined forces

The products of our skincare series Natural Comfort fulfill different requirements and can therefore not only be used by themselves but also in combination for overall blissful feet. Just like all our products they contain the exclusive multi-active cork oak complex*.

The Moisturizing Foot Balm as the basic care can be perfectly combined with the Nourishing Leg and Foot Oil. If your skin is particularly strained, the oil can be mixed into the cream for an even more intensive pampering experience.

As required, the balm can be replaced by the Cooling Foot Cream if you already know that your feet will be put under a lot of strain during the day due to exercising, summer heat or long periods of walking or standing or if your feet tend to swell. Just give it a try!
