End of Summer Feet

They’re not pretty, are they?? Hopefully no painful fissures though.

Here’s a great way to fix them. It’s called Carmol! It has a natural substance in it called urea. You can get a Carmol 20 at the drugstore and there’s a very inexpensive prescription version called Carmol 40 (twice as strong).

Rub this on your feet at night and use a light “foot file” in the morning (see the foot section at the drugstore). The “foot file” looks like a very large nail file with a handle and has an abrasive on either side. Your feet will love you!

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
