Professional salon care products are gradually becoming available to everyone; that’s great, but it’s important to know how to use them correctly. Today we will tell you how a keratolytic (a modern remedy for softening the skin of the feet) works and how to get the most out of this remedy.
What is a keratolytic
Keratolytics soften the keratinized layer of the skin. They are used for manicure (to remove cuticles) and pedicure (to remove dry calluses and corns). Keratolytics replace soaking in a bath. This is especially valuable for people with dry and thin skin, who can be harmed by soaking.
As a result of exposure to keratolytic, keratinized skin particles can be easily removed, and care products can penetrate deeper into the layers of the epidermis.
Urea in the composition
Keratolytics are of different types depending on the active substance: acidic, alkaline and urea-based. The keratolytic Heels belongs to the latter type.
Urea is a natural remedy that not only softens the keratinized layer of the skin, but also moisturizes it, and also relieves itching and irritation. In addition, it stimulates the division of new cells. The composition of Heels keratolytic also includes extracts of chamomile and aloe vera, which makes the effect of the product even more delicate.
Risks of using a keratolytic
Urea-based products have practically no contraindications, except for individual ones. And yet, it is worth considering that this component can dry the skin. To prevent this from happening, follow all steps of care.
How to use Keratolytic Heels correctly
— Prepare your feet: they must be clean, dry and disinfected.
— Wear gloves (included).
— But apply the agent to roughened areas / apply cotton pads soaked in the agent. On dry calluses, keratolytic can be applied with a cotton swab.
