If your father suffers from dry, itchy, cracked feet, The Wright Stuff is now selling some advanced moisturizing footwear that could make the perfect Father’s Day gift this June.
There are many different causes of dry, cracked feet. Diabetes and arthritis are two medical conditions that can affect the health of the feet, including the epidermis. Of course, anyone can have skin problems on their feet due to cold weather, excessive walking or over sweating. According to WebMD, skin dryness on feet can build up over the winter months, when many of us stay warm by wearing heavy boots and socks that do not allow the skin to exfoliate properly. The summer is the perfect time for your father to let his feet take a breather and rejuvenate by wearing the gel sock appropriate for his needs.
A gel sock made for men
We are always looking for a Father’s Day gift that is made just for men. Our black Silipos GeLuscious Moisturizing Gel Socks for Men look masculine and could do wonders for your father’s callused feet. Made from bamboo charcoal, these socks contain tiny pores that absorb odor-causing chemicals and control temperature. Wearing these socks for just 20 minutes three times a week can reduce cracks, dryness and odor and increase the overall health of the feet.
Protection against braces and heavy footwear
While everyone can be prone to skin problems on the feet, it can be particularly troublesome for people with mobile disabilities for reasons most of us might not immediately realize. For instance, ankle and leg braces, while necessary for joints, are often not very friendly to the skin. They tend to rub or cut into the skin and can easily overheat, causing soreness, rashes and odor problems for the feet.
Another foot remedy from Silipos is the Gel Boot Bumper Sleeve. This sleeve features two gel pads and mineral oil and fits over the lower leg and ankle, leaving the toes free and exposed. It protects the foot against pressure and abrasion caused by external forces like leg braces and simultaneously moisturizes and softens the skin.
Protect protruding ankle bones
Silipos also makes the Gel Ankle Sleeve, which fits under lower leg braces, shoes or boots and contains small cushions specially designed to protect the lateral and medial malleolae, the protruding bones on each side of the ankle that are very prone to rub against the interior of footwear and become sore. The Gel Ankle Sleeve also moisturizes and provides light compression to reduce swelling.
With anyone of these gift ideas, your father will not only be able to keep is feet healthy this summer. He will also feel good experiencing the soothing comfort offered by these socks and sleeves.
