Hey gang! Do you love taking great care of your feet? I know I do, and it’s become even more important to me now during menopause.
As I stated in my post yesterday, I’ve been experiencing much dryer skin lately, and I really have to stay on top of the issue.
I’ve been using Foot Works by Avon for quite some time now and really enjoy how these creams moisturize and help my feet. The two I’m using right now are the Maximum Strength Cracked Heel Cream, and the Intensive Moisture Foot Cream. I know I’ve blogged about each of these foot creams in the past, but you know me, when I really love something I like to share again for those who may not have seen previous posts.
The Maximum Strength Cracked Heel Cream is wonderful to have around because it has an external analgesic and also provides a First Aid antiseptic. If your heels are cracked then this will help prevent infection and help with the pain. If not, then yay, and it will help prevent that issue. I’ve luckily not had my heels crack, but when they’re really dry they can be a bit painful, so this does help. I’ve also used this cream on other parts of my body when I’ve had a really itchy patch flare up, and this eases the issue and takes it away right away. So, definitely a great cream to have around. I order this cream just about every time I place an Avon order, so, yeah, it is a must-have item for me.
This lotion has a child-proof top since it is medicated. The tube is 2.5 fl. oz and is listed for $5.29. Here is Avon’s official description:
Transform the look and feel of dry, cracked heels. 2.5 fl. oz
• 24+ hours of moisturization
• Provides up to 2X skin’s moisture
• Helps to soften calluses
• Fragrance-free, phthalate-free, sulfate-free
Clean the affected area. Apply a small amount on the affected area 1-3 times daily. Cover with a sterile bandage if needed.

Next, let’s talk about Avon Foot Works Intensive Moisture Foot Cream.
This foot cream is very comforting as well. It is a thicker and creamier lotion. It is formulated for diabetics, so if you fall into that category, you may want to give this one a try. I’m using this intensive cream due to the extra dryness of my skin right now. This one has a light peppermint aroma so it’s also refreshing. This tube is 2.5 fl oz, and is listed for $4.49.
I’ve actually been blending the two of these together (this and the Cracked Heel Cream) before applying to my feet and then putting on little socks to keep the moisture in. It’s a great way to treat myself in the evenings and really makes me feel better because my feet feel so much better.
Here is Avon’s official description of this Intensive Moisture Foot Cream:
This intensive foot cream featuring Hydra6X Complex delivers gentle and effective moisturizing needed for dry feet common to diabetics. 2.5 fl. oz.

The past few evenings I also tried putting my Skin So Soft Supreme Nourishment Coconut Body Souffle’ in my foot cream blend since it is enriched with Coconut Oil and makes the skin on the rest of my body feel really moisturized, and yeah, it helps too. You should give it a try.
And of course bathing with the Veilment Care Moisturizing Bar Soap with Olive Oil and Coconut Oil beforehand helps with my dry skin too. You can read yesterday’s blog post to get all the info on these two moisturizing wonders.
For even more moisturizing power, I drop a dab of virgin coconut oil into my bath water (tepid temp. is best for dry and sensitive skin according to my dermatologist).
I try to be very mindful of everything that I do to, or put onto my skin now since this extra skin dryness has become a real “issue”, and I am very happy to share with you what I’ve found that actually works for me. I also have very sensitive skin, so I have to be mindful of products for this issue as well. The body souffle’ cream and the bar soap are lightly scented, but my skin has been just fine with that. I normally use unscented products, but these 2 coconut oil products have not been irritating thus far. If you have very sensitive skin, you may want to keep that in mind. Avon also has a fabulous new line of skin moisturizers called Physiogel that you may want to check out. This line is made for dry, sensitive skin. I use Physiogel products for my face, and they also have a body lotion.
If you’re experiencing other issues with your feet, Avon has a great line-up of Foot Works products for just about everything. There is an Overnight Renewing Cream, Lavender Softening Balm, Intensive Callus Cream, Arthritis Achy Foot & Muscle Cream, there are Pedicure Kits and Tools, and more. Here is a link to Avon’s full Foot Works line-up.
I hope you enjoyed today’s foot-care blog post and that you’re able to find the perfect product(s) for your foot needs. Happy feet make a happy me, and I’m sure it goes the same for you.
Take care, and take care of your feet!
