Baby Foot is one of our favorite peels for skin care products. *Gross alert* – if you get really dry, cracked, rough and hard skin on the side of your feet and heel, regular foot maintenance is important.
Viewing images of people’s feet in various stages of peeling is not very inviting, but it will spark your curiosity — after all, who wouldn’t be amazed by such a peculiar product?
What is Baby Foot?
Baby Foot peel is an exfoliating peel designed specifically to remove unwanted dead skin cells from your feet. The process involves wearing a plastic sock filled with exfoliating liquid for approximately 2 hours. After this treatment time, over the next 7-10 days, you wait and watch your feet dead skin shed like a snake. Depending on your viewpoint of things like this, you find this process either highly satisfying or completely disgusting. We firmly in the oh-so-satisfying group.
How does it work?
It’s similar to a chemical peel. The exfoliating liquid contains Alpha Hydroxy Acids (salicylic acid, lactic acid, glycolic acid, and alcohol) which are keratolytic. These acid medicines thin the top layer of your skin to separate the connections in the dead skin cells — peeling the top layer of skin to reveal the soft, smooth and fresh skin underneath.
What are the results?
No cause for alarm here, we’ve decided not to subject you to before and after photos of our patients’ feet. However, we can confirm that the results went from rough, scaly and dry to silky smooth and soft in just a week.
The 17 types of natural extracts in Baby Foot leaves your feet highly moisturized and the sole becomes very smooth after peeling. Additionally, it adds moisture to the skin while also maintaining the grain of the skin.
