OUR FEET ARE OFTEN NEGLECTED
While it’s common to take good care of our face and hair, our feet are often neglected.
Many people care minimally for their feet or skip foot care all together because the products on the market are usually very time-consuming and tedious… So yes, we leave our feet to get dry, hard and cracked.⠀
Lovisa Walker, founder of new Swiss skincare brand LOVASKIN, says that when the feet are not cared for, people tend to feel uncomfortable being barefoot in yoga class or at the beach, it leads to their feet being hidden away in socks and shoes.
it seems indeed to be a common problem – according to a study by Kelton Research for the American Podiatric Medical Association, more than 50% of women say their feet embarrass them “always, frequently or sometimes”.⠀
What about you, have you ever chosen a different pair of shoes because your heels were dry and possibly had cracks? Or dreaded going to the pool because you were embarrassed by your feet? Or focused more on hiding your feet than on the actual pilates or martial art practice…?
Perhaps it sounds dramatic, but the fact is that our freedom is limited and our confidence takes a toll when we feel that our feet are unsightly.
Lovisa says she felt the same about her feet. As many women, working and being a mother of two small children, she lacked time for self care. And her poor feet came last on her priority list.
Pedicures at salons usually have lengthy protocols, including long foot soaks sometimes with products added to the water to soften the hard foot skin, then the feet are covered with patches with aggressive softeners and finally wrapped up in plastic film and you are left to wait… After this extensive preparation, it’s time for gommage and filing and then, at last, the toe nails get their attention.
The result of a professional pedicure is usually fabulous and the nail polish done on the toes last anywhere from 4 to 6 weeks. The only problem is that the foot soles need care more often than that.
Having tried exfoliating socks, which took weeks to show results, and a myriad of other brands and products which promise the earth, but fail to deliver, Lovisa felt increasingly disappointed and decided to create her own foot treatment.
A NEW CONCEPT – THE INSTANT FOOT PEELING
In 2019, her small family owned company LOVASKIN launched its first product, the Instant Foot Peeling.
This new concept foot treatment works extremely fast and provides immediate incredible results! It is effective beyond belief and makes the feet smooth and healthy looking already after the very first treatment – ideal for both professional pedicures and foot treatments and as a home treatment in between appointments at the beauty salon.
It couldn’t be easier to use: just spray onto dry feet, wait 60 seconds for the potent active ingredients to work, and then remove the dry, hard, dead foot skin and reveal the soft, new healthy feet underneath.
At the end of its first year, the revolutionary Instant Foot Peeling was awarded the prestigious Cosmoprof Award “Best New Product” in the category feet, hands and nails.
PROFESSIONALS LOVE IT TOO
Beauticians, nail technicians, spas and even podiatrist worldwide have started using the LOVASKIN Instant Foot Peeling for pedicures and foot care because it is so quick and practical. They save precious time as no preparation is needed. This way they can do more treatments per day.
They reverse the usual pedicure protocol and begin with the callus removal because this new peeling works best on dry feet. They spray a bit extra on the cuticles to make them easy to push back and cut, and if they still want to include a foot bath, they do it after all the dead, dry foot skin and calluses have been removed, and the feet can really benefit from salts and oils and their well-being properties.
They also like that it is environmental friendly and requires no single use items – not even plastic gloves as the peeling is gentle, yet extremely powerful.
A BALANCED FORMULA – SUITABLE FOR EVERYONE
LOVASKIN Instant Foot Peeling is formulated and manufactured in Switzerland. It is the perfect balance of fruit acids that gently, but effectively exfoliate dead skin, with plant extracts known for their moisturising properties, such as aloe vera, prickly pear and Swiss glacier water.
Thanks to its unique formulation, the feet feel soft and look amazing after just one simple treatment.
With its light fresh scent, the product is 100% unisex, because “beyond aesthetics, having healthy feet is important for the general well-being”, explains Lovisa. It is a product that everyone can use, women and men, young and old… ⠀
Moreover, it is vegan and free of parabens, phthalates, sulphates, dyes and petrolatum. It is cruelty free (not tested on animals).
OUR FEET NEED REGULAR CARE
When it comes to our overall health, our feet are probably the most underrated part of the body. They carry us through life and are exposed to considerable stress every day. They really deserve tender loving care.
We need to start considering foot care as important as taking care of other parts of our body. And foot care is not a one-off treatment and then you’re done – feet require regular care in order to maintain the beauty and good health and prevent the appearance of hard and dry skin.
With LOVASKIN’s new treatment, foot care is no longer a “chore” and being almost effortless, everyone should add it to the regular skincare routine. Your feet will thank you.
PRACTICAL “ESSENTIAL KIT”
The Instant Foot Peeling is available in different size bottles for beauty and health professionals, who can add it to all their pedicures and foot treatments, but it is also available as a home-treatment.
LOVASKIN has put together an “Essential Kit” with everything needed for successful foot care at the comfort of your home. Because even if we have professionals pedicure and feet treatments done, we still need to care for our feet in-between treatments with our beautician or podiatrist.
It is also perfect for your partner, for a friend and for elderly parents who perhaps never go for foot care. With this practical kit you can give your feet a quick and incredibly effective treatment anytime, anywhere.
ALL IN THE NAME
It is not a coincidence that Lovisa chose to call her skincare brand LOVASKIN – “lova” means to promise is Swedish, her mother tongue.
It is her philosophy and has been the vision from the start, to formulate easy to use, fast acting and effective products. Products which keep their promises!
The Instant Foot Peeling makes it possible again, after only one 2-minutes treatment, to chose the open shoes or sandals that best fit the outfit and to stand confident in mat class and focus solely on the postures.
Make the promise to yourself to take good care of your feet – all year round.
