Foot Care Rituals

Hidden away all winter and regularly mistreated, it's time to take care of them! But how do you make them soft and beautiful again? Follow our tips for pampered feet.

SOFTENS YOUR FEET

Just like our hands, our feet are naturally drier than the rest of our body. This is due to the absence of sebaceous glands in these areas. Furthermore, they are put to the test all year round with little reprieve. Due to the cold, heat or rubbing in shoes daily, the skin on the feet tends to dry out.
 
As a result, skin becomes more fragile, losing its elasticity and becoming rough, with even calluses or cracks. Feet may suffer discomfort and even daily pain. Special attention must therefore be paid to nourish and protect the skin on the feet. To ensure feet are comfortable every day, our Botanical Beauty® researchers have selected organic Peppermint for its soothing properties* and combined it with organic Mallow from La Gacilly. Shea butter, known for its nourishing and restorative properties, was added to our Repairing Foot Balm, creating a truly effective care for the driest of feet.

ORGANIC BOTANICAL INGREDIENTS FROM SUSTAINABLE SOURCES

Our Botanical Beauty® researchers have selected unique plants, known for their cosmetic properties. The harvest period was chosen so that the plant was at peak freshness, as well as the extraction method which allows the concentration of active molecules to be optimized.

PEPPERMINT

Peppermint (Mentha x piperita) has been grown in England since the 17th century. In 2019, Yves Rocher chose to plant this particular variety of mint on its native land of La Gacilly, Brittany, which is particularly purifying and refreshing.
 

MALLOW

Mallow (Malva sylvestris) is a traditional medicinal plant remarkable for the variety of its uses. The first evidence of its use by humans dates back 3000 BC, particularly in Syria. Later, it was used as a softener during the Greco-Roman Empire. Since 1977, Yves Rocher has been growing Mallow in its hometown of Brittany for its oxygenating and detoxifying properties.
 
SHEA
 
Renowned for its nourishing and repairing properties, Shea is considered a sacred tree : only women are allowed to pick and work its fruits. This unique traditional knowledge is passed on from generation to generation.
Our Shea seeds all come from West Africa. We use locally based suppliers to ensure the network’s sustainable development.

1,2,3 Steps for Gorgeous Feet!

Step 1: Combat Roughness
 
Subjected to repeated friction and compressed in shoes, the skin on the feet, an area of the body devoid of sebaceous glands, becomes dry and thickens. The "callus" (hyperkeratosis) under the feet is a skin reaction to friction.
 
With the Exfoliating Foot Gel enriched with Organic Mint and Organic Mallow, rediscover smooth and soft feet! It exfoliates and reduces skin roughness, feet look smooth and feel soft. Say goodbye to impurities and dead skin. Regular exfoliation will help prevent callus formation.
 
1. Moisten your feet with clear water.
2. Take a small amount of Exfoliating Foot Gel and apply by making small circular motions to intensify the exfoliation.
3. Rinse thoroughly.
 
And to tackle stubborn calluses, use a Pumice Stone Foot File on damp skin, lightly rub your heel and affected areas. Be careful not to use the foot file more than 1 or 2 times a week, because doing it too often, will cause calluses to reappear more and more quickly!
Step 2 : Embrace the Softness
 
Your feet deserve a moment of relaxation too! It's essential to moisturize them well to prevent calluses. Take this opportunity to indulge in a moment of well-being:
 
Apply the Express Absorption Foot Cream enriched with Organic Mint and Organic Mallow to the entire feet, massaging from the toes to the heel. Pay special attention to the heels and the soles of the feet, which tend to dry out more quickly. A true source of care for the feet, it immediately and lastingly moisturizes and nourishes feet, protecting them from skin dryness.
 
For extreme dryness:
 
1 to 2 times a week, apply a thick layer of the Repairing Foot Balm enriched with Organic Mint, Organic Mallow, and Organic Shea Butter, and let it penetrate for intense nutrition and repair. A genuine effective care for the driest feet, skin is immediately moisturized and relieved for 24 hours*, rediscovering softness and comfort.
To enhance its action, use the product as a mask overnight by putting on cotton socks after application. Okay, it might not be wildly glamorous, but you'll have ultra-soft feet in the morning.
 
*Objective clinical test carried out on 12 volunteers
