Foot cream is a cream specific for the feet and heels area. It is normally thicker, heavier, and more nourishing than other skincare creams. The reason why is the skin on the feet is thicker than the other areas of the body. Plus, the feet carry the entire body around all day and develop the calluses on the feet, heels, and toes. Foot cream is used to soften and heal dry, hard patches and cracked heels.
